Emma – 18 Months

My Big Girl! You are 1½ already!

You are SO SMART! Oh my goodness!!!
And I don’t say that just because I’m your mom, everyone that knows you says the same thing!

You know all your colors, you can name them and pick them out.
Same with animals, you can pick them out when we ask you where one is and you can name them if we show them to you. You also know what they sound like.

You are working on your ABCs, you can sing the ABC song, and you can tell us what each letter is for. “A is for Apple, S is for Snake…”
We are working on counting things, but you can count to 10 in both English and Portuguese.

You LOVE LOVE LOVE songs! You LOVE to sing!
You can sing along to pretty much every kid song, nursery rhymes, etc. You can even sing in Portuguese too!

You repeat everything everyone says, so we are definitely more careful with what we say around you lol. And you say WOWWWWW a lot.

You love baby dolls! You give them “peta”, which is what you call pacifiers, you also give them milk in their toy bottles and you even share your own food with them. Mommy got you a baby doll stroller and you LOVE it! You stroll your babies and stuffed animals all over the house, haha!

You still love Minnie and Daisy, and Little People toys. You like unicorns and books too! You just started calling them books instead of “mook”! Your favorite book right now is Sophie’s ABC Book, and you love lift the flap books so I got you a BUNCH!

You like to go to the park, you love your playroom and you get SO happy when kids come over to play with you! You have a lot of friends, but you and Gracie are the cutest together because you are the closest in age, so you two like the same things and you play very well together! It’s adorable when you two get together!

You are finally letting me put bows in your hair again! You do pull them out sometimes, but you’ve been a lot better about leaving them alone. You call them “pretty” because every time I do your hair I tell you that you are pretty haha.

You are better at eating, even though you still fight us sometimes. You could eat your weight in Goldfish – “pish” and you like to drink water – “aguinha”. You say juice with a lisp, it’s pretty adorable! When you want more of something you alternate saying “more” and “mais”. You pretty much always want what I’m eating nowadays lol.

You like playing with Mommy on Snapchat, you especially like the dog filter, like always, but lately you really like the bunny one too.

You call Daddy by Jaime sometimes, it’s funny! But of course Daddy doesn’t think so.
Whenever someone asks you what someone’s or something’s name is you say “Moo”…? I don’t know where you got that from lol!

You are a Big Sister! You love your Baby Brother and you always say “Hiya Owen!” when you see him. You’re not very gentle yet but you’re getting there! You’ve been Mommy’s Helper, whenever I ask you to grab something you usually understand and help! 🙂 If only you could change diapers haha!

You are super sassy and you hate hearing no. You get really mad and act like a toddler haha, meaning you cry and sometimes throw a tantrum. Thank goodness your tantrums aren’t obnoxious and I can get you to snap out of them fairly easily!

I can’t believe how big you are. I miss how little you used to be, but I am definitely enjoying this age.

I love you sooooooo much!
In the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening and underneath the moon! ♥
– Mommy
