Seesh is time flying. Kyler Bug turned 18 Months this past Thursday!
She is quite the handful these days. She has hit the full toddler stride and it is keeping us busy! She has been going through separation anxiety from me recently. This started during vacation and she has been all about Mommy ever since. I love it but it can be tiring when I would love for her to go see Daddy 🙂 She has been tugging on me saying “up, up” more and more but I try to only give in once in a while.
We cut the paci last week!!! Whoo hoo!!! She had only been using it for sleeping for the last 8 months or so but we finally pulled the plug (pun intended) and took it away. She has done pretty well without it! She cried for a hour and 45 minutes the first night and that was HORRIBLE. I felt so bad for her. She was searching for her paci for a good majority of it, she even took off her pants to look for it in there. Poor thing. It took a lot not just to go in there and give it back. But we knew it was for the better and every night it got better and better. She doesn’t cry anymore when we put her to bed and I think she has really forgotten about it already.
Kyler had her 18 month check-up the other day! Everything went great! She is 25 lbs and 5 oz, just under 85 percentile) and 33 inches tall (85th percentile). Doc said she is a very steady grower. I did get the “look” when she found out she was still in a crib. Because she is an active little girl and super tall on top of it, she really wants her in a bed sooner than later. We bought a bed a while ago and need to refinish it so that gave us the motivation to get it done.
I would say Kyler’s favorite thing to do right now is dance. She moves at any sound of music and tells me to play music ie “dance, dance”. She loves to move it and groove it 🙂 I realize they must be teaching her all sorts of songs at school because we will play a new kids song and she knows it. She has been doing Baby Bumblebee, 5 Little Monkeys, Old McDonald, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Wheels on the Bus, and the list goes on.
Happy 18 Months Kyler!!!! We love you, you crazy little Bug!
