WOW! I'm behind! Ariah is now 17 months! She has changed so much in the last couple of months I don't even know where to begin. Her vocabulary is growing more and more every day. I stopped writing down all of her words when she got to about 30 words a couple months ago. She is beginning to put 2 words together, and daddy consistantly gets a "byebye dada" on his way out the door. She understands so much of what we say and watches our every move! Recently she picked up my trick of tapping my toe when some food is dropped for the dogs to come and get it. So now whenever she drops food she taps her little toe on the ground too! It is very cute.
She is still LOVING the Little Gym. She has learned to jump, and gets off both feet! The bars are her favorite where she loves to swing and pull her feet up to the bar.
After 6 long months I think we are finally coming out of the separation anxiety phase! She no longer crys when I leave her in the nursery at church or with babysitters and she lets other people besides mommy hold her even when I'm in sight. She still has her moments when only mommy will do, but I think the worst is over.
I can't believe we are coming up on 18 months! I am so excited to watch her communication and language increase in the months to come.
