When does it stop being partly cloudy and start being partly sunny?

A few housekeeping notes:

  • Commenting Policy - I am trying really hard to reply to comments more consistently. However, if I don't have an email address with the comment, I will not be able to reply personally. Also, I sometimes check comments via my phone, which makes it more difficult for me to reply in a timely manner.
  • TastyKakes - I did forget to mention that I actually liked the Peppermint KandyKakes.
  • Facebook - If you add me as a friend on Facebook and are a reader, can you please note that in the request? I am getting friend requests from folks I don't recognize and that would help me immensely in knowing how you found me.

And now. My baby girl? Is no longer a baby. Whoa. Miss Thang turned 18 months old last week! My baby wants to walk everywhere now. She wants to dress and feed herself, dammit. And she doesn't want to wear that shirt, she would rather wear this shirt. She informs me when she has a dirty diaper and yes, she needs cream on that butt, thankyouverymuch. While you are at it, Her Royal Highness would like you to put some lotion on her, too. Now, she would like some chocolate milk. No. Wait. She has changed her mind. How about some banana yogurt instead? Yes, she needs to watch Diego. Not Blue, not Jack and not Dora. Preferably, NOW. And when you are in the car, she informs that snakes and dragons are chasing you. Go faster, please. Hey, wait a second. Is that McDonald's? In that case, she would like some ice cream, instead. Please? PLEASE. And when she is tired, she needs her puppy or her monkey or Curious George doll, you damned fool. Good grief, woman, are you not listening to her?

The other day, I made a list of all the words she knows and I finally gave up and stopped at 106 words even though I was not done. She is speaking 2 - 3 word sentences. She knows exactly what she wants, how she wants it and when. She is a such little firecracker. I hope she never loses that spirit and mostly, I hope she never, ever stops demanding what she wants.

Chair Snap - 18 months

Still Rockin' Those Blue Eyes
I am going to make a bet they still change color. Maybe not to a brown, but to a green, perhaps? My mom has green eyes, which is where Arun gets his weird tint.

A Match Made in Heaven
Anju is really into feeding things - people, dolls, stuffed animals and yes, the cats. Pearson was more than willing to partake. I don't know who was more excited about the situation. Anjali getting a willing participant or Pearson getting his beloved ice cream.

Pearson is such a handsome beast.

I was looking at your chair series the other day. It's amazing how fast they grow.

Anjali said...

I love it when they hit 18 months. It is the best.

This is such a fun age. I'm in awe of Anjali's verbal skills. Though maybe I shouldn't be wishing for Andrew to pick up new words -- I gfet enough verbal demands from his big brother. Thanks for sharing her adorableness!

My eyes were blue until I was 3 years old and have been green since, so an eyecolor change is entirely possible.

That orange kitty makes me want to reach out and give him a pat. I loves me some orange kitties.

My oldest had saphire blue eyes until he was 2 1/2 or 3 and then they changed to an olive green. I'd always heard that they don't change after 6 months, but I'd clearly been misinformed.
She's lovely, no matter her eye color. What a beautiful and happy girl.
