18 Months!

Happy Valentine's Day! To celebrate we had pink waffles this morning. We are also celebrating the fact that Brynn is 18 months old today! Yay! *And sniff!* 

I can't give you any stats because we haven't had an appointment yet, but I can say that she seems older to me everyday. She "talks" all the time to us. Sounds like this: (with urgency) "Behoo nubad die na daheh die." She likes saying "die" a lot. She used to answer every question "Yeah!" with gusto. But now she has a perfect little sing song "Noooooooo." 

Favorite foods are mac and cheese and any dinner with cream cheese in the recipe. She likes shutting herself in rooms alone, and when I come get her she says "Bye" and tries to shut me out again. She liked going to nursery on Sunday but didn't love it when they turned off the light for nap time (1pm church calls for desperate measures). She screamed and screamed until Daddy heard her all the way across the building in priesthood. She likes taking walks and going to playgroup with friends. She loves to take Mommy and Daddy's books off the shelves and sit on the couch and pretend to read. She also LOVES coloring, but you can't let her do it by herself because she loves chewing on crayons even more than she loves to color. 

Big girl ponytail. 

Reading books with our friends! 

More play time! She also loves to carry my keys wherever she goes. I'm so surprised we haven't lost them yet. 

Church is over people, Truman and I are ready to go! 

Brynn also really loves swinging! She could stay in that swing for hours if I let her.

I hate the movie A Christmas Story. I think it's stupid. Not stupid-funny, just plain stupid.

Sometimes during nap time when I should be getting things done I read Harry Potter instead.

Never been a huge fan of LuLaRoe, Jamberry, Scentsy, or Usborne Books. (Pretty sure I just offended 92% of all the women I've ever met).

I vacuum only rarely. My vacuum doesn't really work that well, and I'm too cheap/lazy to get a new one. So why vacuum? It accomplishes little.

I would really love to own a Kitchen-aid, but I hold off on asking for one for a big holiday present because I know I'll feel guilt-tripped into making homemade bread.

I think cats are disgusting.

I eat FiberOne granola bars just for the chocolate coating.

I still feel kind of confused every time I put gas in my car. Yeah. I'm 26.

I have a degree in English. I dislike Charles Dickens books. I mean, the ones I've read. Haven't read that many.

I buy Wal-mart generic brand of diapers for my baby.

Sometimes I go on extra grocery shopping trips just for something to do.

I drink Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke but I judge people who drink Mountain Dew. Mountain Dew is Satan's soda. Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke are delicious.

When someone gets on the treadmill next to me at the gym I trash talk them in my head. It makes me run farther when I feel like we're competing.

The movies Finding Dory and Tarzan make me cry uncontrollably.

I actually kind of like Clay Matthews' hair.
