It feels really odd to have a toddler running around our home. It was just recently that she joined our family, and she’s already a year and a half. After a year of monthly updates, I stopped doing them every month because updating after 12 months seemed too much. So I decided to focus on the next big milestone, 18 months.
So much has happened since Dhara’s 12 month update. She’s learned the word “no.” She uses it frequently, but in the sweetest voice possible as she shakes her head and her eyebrows go into a frown. It’s hard not to scoop her up and hold her tight when she says “no” in that voice. In addition to “no”, she’s picked up many other words along the way, like: cute, stinky, credit, heavy, and cupcake. She talks in mini sentences, like, “Dhara sit it”, or a question like, “he’s gone?” She’s also learning her ABC’s and 123’s. If you ask her to count something, this is usually what it sounds like, “2,8,2,8.” We are working on this. : )
She is super lovable. She loves to hug and kiss and tickle people. And don’t worry if you aren’t ticklish, she will laugh for you. She’s definitely a people person. My mom tells me I was the exact same way as a toddler. Dhara loves talking on the phone to her Grandma and Grandpa (Greg’s parents), as well as her Papa and Grammy (my grandparents). She has so much to say, most of which is unintelligible, but with real words stuck in here and there. She loves little kids especially and usually finds someway to hug them.
Dhara, you are an amazing little girl and we love you to pieces. Happy 18 months to my Dhara Dear! More tomorrow on a quaint celebration we had to celebrate her 18 months.
