Happy 14 Month Birthday Adelyn!!

My sweet, crazy Adelyn is now 14 months old! I cannot believe she is getting so big so fast. I know this post is going to sound repetitive but I want to be sure to capture every little thing I can from this age because it is so precious.

Adelyn, you are such an active little girl. You run around all day long unless you are in the mood to cuddle and then you come and scream at me until I pick you up and just hold you and if daddy is home he is most definitely your cuddler of choice.

This picture of you and your sister is a great picture of what I see all day long. Ya'll have soooo much fun together; yes, ya'll fight and cry but you love to play together and one day you are going to be so thankful that your big sister is so kind to you.

You adore playing in this red chair. It is one of your favorite things to do. You also still love Umizoomi and basically anything Annabelle is or has played with. You have turned into a very picky eater which even more solidifies how much you are just like your daddy. Most days I have no idea what to feed you.

You and your sister are so different and that makes life so much fun for me. Whenever I discipline you, you immediately cry, even if I just use a stern voice. I wonder if you are going to be tender hearted one day. When I lay you down for nap or to go to bed at night you just watch me leave the room. You play for a while and then go to sleep but you absolutely not do this if you think Annabelle is playing downstairs and that you are going to miss out!

You sleep pretty good at night for the most part and like I have said over and over again, we are so thankful that all your reflux etc issues have settled down and bit and allowed us all to get some rest!! We have to let you cry sometimes because you LOVE to sleep in bed with us and snuggle but we know that is not best for us and so we let you cry and you always go back to sleep. I just think it is sweet that you are thinking of us in the middle of the night! haha. (:

You wear 12-18 month clothes, mostly 18 month because your belly is too big for 12 month clothes. You and your sister look a lot alike but also look very different in how you fit into your clothes. I love how people can tell you are sister but they see your differences.

One thing people always notice about you is how much you love food. You are always eating. The funny thing is you are not even very chunky for someone who eats so much. I always tell people that you are so hungry because you are so active and if you really are just like your daddy, you probably got his metabolism too!

I love the age and stage you are in now. You say, "mama," "dadda," "no," "yes." Last night when you and Annabelle were in the bath tub (and Annabelle wasn't in the best mood) you grabbed something of hes and she said, "MISE" (which in Annabelle's world means "that's mine.") You turned around and started saying it too! It was soooooo funny!

I love you sweet girl! You are so sweet and precious. Please stop growing up so fast!!
