16 and 17 Months

My How Time Flies...
Things I'm Doing Now:
Playing under the house while mom gardens
Only taking one nap
Talking and Signing like crazy
Saying names of people I love
Playing more independently
Playing "Boo Boo" in the Closet (peek-a-boo)
Pointing to Mom's Tummy and saying Baby
Moving and Lifting things like her chair and boxes
Jumping off rocks at the beach Into Mom's arms
Sun bathing in the sand
Swimming and going for a ride on the paddle board

What's for Dinner?
She loves getting in to small spaces like a cat
Boxes are her favorite
She has become quite the climber, up the chair on to the table
This picture captures two of her favorite things; poop and any book with Jesus in it.

Things I love:
Jesus (She finds him everywhere. Books paintings. She always pulls out the scriptures and flips through until she finds a picture of "Jee Jee")
Stacking Cups
Baby Signing Time
Purses and shoes, mostly mom's shoes
"Helping" in the kitchen
Geckos Kitties and Dogs
The Moon (She wakes up requesting the "moon please") and Stars
Eating tomatoes and strawberries from the garden
Food that I can dip in Ranch
Moped and wagon rides with dad
Helicopters and Airplanes! I hear them from miles away.

Which purse goes best with my blue dog
She loves her playmate Jonny. Usually she just watches "Jah Jah" run and laughs at everything he does.
That last hour of church is brutal. Dad took her outside. A few more weeks till nursery.

Is this the craziest cutest mullet you ever did see? It's actually starting to curl in the back. The other day I tried putting it into pig tails and it was ridiculous. I was just laughing for the 2 min. she left them in.

Hanalei is looking for

Her little brother or sister.
She wont find the baby until March 14th if baby is punctual.
We are very excited for Hanalei and for us. Having another baby means more fun and more work but we know there is lots of room in our family.
