She can get up and down stairs, although we don't let her do that alone! She's walking everywhere now but she's still a little unstable sometimes. She loves to dance and she is pretty hilarious when she does it.
Kylie loves stuffed animals now, just like her Jie Jie and Mama (when I was younger, of course!). She has learned how to give a "baby" a bottle and burp it. She has started playing a little more now, but lots of times at home she just wanders around. I think she really likes to walk now that she's doing it.
She can be a picky eater at times, but generally eats what is put in front of her. She loves milk and will drink water, but we don't give her much juice anymore because we love that she loves milk because that is what is helping her to grow. She has about 10 teeth and of those at least 2-3 are molars and they all seem to have come in about the same time. Kylie really likes to feed herself and because she can't quite do it all by herself yet, that is a huge point of contention for us. There are some things, like oatmeal, that she just can't do herself because she doesn't yet have the coordination to keep the food on the spoon. But we are working hard on that since it gives her more control.
Kylie has been going to the church nursery for both hours for the last few weeks and seems to love it. I am thrilled and think she is learning so much from being around other kids. And her teachers are the best and it makes me so happy that they are there with her.
In general, Kylie has turned into a pretty happy baby. I don't want to wish these early days away since we've lost so much time with her already, but I am so anxious to see what she is going to be like as a toddler.
So that's Kylie at 18 months...I can't wait to see what the next few months bring in terms of her speech and development!
