I seriously have a 14 month old daughter?? Where the heck has the time gone!?! And when the heck will this shock wear off?! Seriously!
I have loved each and every day with this little human being we've created. It still amazes me how smart Annaliese is, how much she has grown and how much of her own little person she is already.
She is very kind and will share her food and drink with mommy and daddy.
Said has said " book", "cat", "duck" and tries to repeat other words that we say. She goes on and babbles all the time now. She also says "woah" and "wow" a lot! Hehehe I love it!
She loves to walk and run around! She doesn't like being held too long unless she is really sleepy.
And because she is walking and running around all the time, she also falls a lot more and really hurts her pride (and tush) sometimes more than anything else.
She is still in 18 month clothes and can still fit in most 12 month pants.
She loves spaghetti and mac and cheese! But for some reason she isn't fond of bananas anymore. :(
She also LOVES water! (thank God!) She doesn't really want anything to do with any kind of juice just yet, but water is just fine.
She still doesn't want to drink milk from a sippy cup either, so we still have a morning bottle and a night time bottle.
She has somehow transitioned herself into only taking one 2 hour nap a day. I'm okay with that! It had to happen eventually! :)
She still loves playing with other kids and hearing them laugh! I love the smile she gets on her face when she hears other kids laughing. It's like they have their own little baby code or something!
She can put her toys away as long as mommy and daddy show her how to the first few times that night.
She points to almost everything in the house now. Then she mumbles. She's learning!
She loves to play with pots and pans and make music :) She is also slowly learning to put the correct shapes into her learning toys.
She knows what the tree is (Christmas tree), she knows what a nose is, she knows Sammy (the cat) and she knows her favorite stuffed toys (Teddy, Mickey Mouse, and Pippi, her doll).
She loves going to playgroup and meeting new friends to play with!
She is so very close to using her spoon or fork with 100% success on every bite!
Here's some pictures and a video to enjoy!

It still amazes me more and more each day of how beautiful she is and how precious life is. We are so blessed to have a healthy little girl who fills our days with so much love and joy. :)
