Katelee Madge

March 10, 2010 Our Katelee Madge turned 18 months this month. I can't believe that it has been a year and a half since she came into our lives. At 18 months Katelee weighted 22lbs(10-25 percentile) and is 32 inches tall(50-75 percentile). Still our Tall and Skinny girl! Katelee loves to get her way and do her own thing. She can say a few words such as Dada, Mama, NO, bed, drink, juice, bye-bye, nite-nite and ball. She doesn't usually give us any problems going to bed. When you tell her it's nite-nite time she will head up the stairs on her own. She doesn't drink from a bottle any more, not like she really did anyways! She loves and insists on feeding herself all of her food, so after most meals it's quite a lot of clean up! She doesn't mind getting dirty and loves to play outside. She plays cars with Ethan and loves to pick on him. She can be a mean girl at times and when you punish her she acts as if she is the one that was hurt. She loves to say "no" to anything you ask her. Katelee is very good at taking off her shoes AND socks, especially in the car. She is still taking two naps, however I think she is working herself closer to one nap. If we put Ethan to bed before Katelee falls asleep the night seems to never end. She will yell, giggle and throw her stuff out of her crib the entire night until she falls asleep or Ethan does. She is an instigator and loves to have attention. She loves to give hugs when she is in a good mood. If Katelee sees Daddy give Mommy a kiss she will immediately want a kiss from him. She already has a pretty good throwing arm and will throw anything and everything no matter where she is. Just this Sunday she threw her animal crackers at church when we made her stop teasing the boy behind us with them. She is a tease and thinks she is so funny ALL the time. She has the most beautiful blue eyes and her hair is finally growing in. It's kinda getting longer in the back but not so much on the top still. She has started keeping things in her hair for more than 30 seconds at a time, thank heavens, because without them in her hair looks nappy! She has naturally curly hair that I absolutely love for now. Katelee loves to have her teeth brushed and wave to herself in the mirror. She loves to try to put her shoes on and has even been able to put Ethan's boots on all by herself. When Katelee is on a mission she walks with purpose, swinging her arm and stomping!
Has it really been a year and a half since Katelee looked like this?
Boy how fast time goes by when you are having fun! Katelee definitely has her own personality and we just love her to pieces! We look forward to the next year and a half and MORE! Love you Katelee!
