Eighteen months...

Oh, this girl of mine.

Weren't we just celebrating her first birthday?

My little fireball keeps us on the run... all. the. time.
She jabbers like a parrot -- repeating anything and everything she hears -- which, frankly, is terrifying for her mother, who is known to use some not-so-nice words every once in awhile.

Some of our favorite selections from her vocabulary include "glasses" "snow" "hiya!" "bubye" "cookie" "yuck" and "ee-ii-ee-ii-oohhh."

She's even started to toy with the idea of full sentences ("Daddy go bye bye!" "Shhh, baby sleep").
That little voice kills me.

Lola is obsessed with all things hygiene.
She loves brushing her teeth, combing her hair, splashing in the bath, washing her hands and putting on "makeup."
She'll sit on the bathroom floor with me on the rare morning I actually put makeup on and mimic my every move.
It's quite adorable.

Her biggest accomplishment this month -- she's finally walking!
We won't have to buy her a Jazzy scooter after all!
Forgive my "mommy voice"

Also this month, Lola served Reece a hefty dose of karma.
When Reece was a baby and discovered that screaming "mama" from his crib didn't produce the desired results, he transitioned to "Cyndi!"

That got his mother's attention quick.

So imagine Reece's shock when Lola ditched the "babbo" and opted for "Reeeeeecccccceee" instead.

Our little bird keeps us laughing and reminds us that there is a lot of good in this world, despite all the bad.

Let's just hope she doesn't decide to try to sell her baby brother on craigslist or ksl.com.

That was so dang cute.

Ha! I love this! It looks like she has inherited your clean everything style Jess from the way she was brushing that thing off the carpet. :)

Oh my gosh, what a little smarty! We really do need to get these too together to play sometime!
