17 months

Pizza Lover, originally uploaded by PaulaK.

At 17 months A. has become a full fledged "person" with many likes and dislikes, which she doesn't hesitate to share with us. Although she doesn't talk much, except to say "Mama!" and one of her sisters' names, she is adept at pointing, grunting, squealing, gesturing and taking us by the hand and showing us--so adept that it is rare when we can't tell what it is she wants.

As you can see, she loves pizza. She also loves oranges--I'd call them her favorite food.

She has unfortunately developed a tactic of banging her forehead on the floor if she doesn't get her way. We have been ignoring this behavior as much as possible and it seems to be lessening.

She's also learned to hit and to provoke. She likes to follow poor K. around and hit him for no reason.

She enjoys baby dolls, holding, "singing" and rocking them.

We are both still enjoying our nursing relationship, and she still wakes once or twice at night to nurse, something she enjoys more than I do!

She likes rough play, being turned upside down, bounced and tickled wildly, etc. Her favorite "game" is peekaboo.

She is cute and funny most of the time, and we all adore her.

Oh my, what a cutie! She looks so much older than 17 months with the pizza in her hand.

She's adorable. My 18 month old banged her head for awhile. She hardly does it anymore, but boy oh boy does she have a temper!
