Today this nugget turned 16 months old. She walks backwards proudly, runs forward, signs over 5 signs, has 12 teeth, and gives snuggles on demand. Elizabeth has a quickly growing vocabulary and is gaining skills physically almost every minute. Her current favorite things include being in her learning tower to help in the kitchen, doing anything on her own without help, and both Alodia and Oscar. At her 15 month follow up she was 23 lbs 3 oz and 29.5″ long!

Alodia is so laid back and easy going I can’t even believe it. She tolerates any petting, poking, pulling, etc from Elizabeth and all the slobbery licks and nudges from Oscar. She sleeps better than I ever dreamed was possible for a newborn and conveniently isn’t startled awake by any unusual noises. She smiles with her whole face and has already mastered rolling from belly to back. She has olive skin and is already losing her dark brown hair. Her eyes are gray and the sweetest shade of it. As much as we thought we had no more love to give after Elizabeth, this girl made our hearts grow even more.
