Makayla is 18 months old!

Well this post is 8 days overdue, but better late than never right? Makayla is now over 1/2 way through her 2nd year. And my how she has been growing. In the last 3 months she has grown 2 inches. She now weighs 22lbs and is 31.25" tall. Makayla runs, climbs and everything in between. Her vocabulary has also increased. She says 25+ words, that we understand, probably even more that we don't. She comprehends most things we say to her. She also knows at least 10 words in sign language. This definitely helps us understand her. Makayla's favorite thing right now is to be outside. It doesn't matter if she is exploring, at the park, out for a walk, or in a pool, as long as she is outside she is happy. Her favorite toy is her bubble wand. She would play with that all day if we let her. She also likes her teddies and reading books with us or alone. She also loves playing "If You are Happy and You Know It". I must admit I think she is just the cutest when she does it. Especially when I find her singing and doing the actions by herself.

Along with all the fun and joy she brings we have also been dealing with her independence the last little while. It has really started to show. What a little personality Makayla has. She's a bundle of energy that is for sure and I wouldn't want it any other way. :)

At what age did you start the sign language?
