16 Months

I just love these pictures, taken Sunday before church:
Sarah turned 16 months old a few weeks ago. I cannot believe how fast time has gone. Yesterday she and I looked through pictures from last year at this time, and I could not believe how much she has changed! Here is Sarah, 1 year ago today! Where did her chubby cheeks go?!
Sarah had her 15 month well-child visit last week. (We are a month behind on visits due to insurance issues.) The doctor was satisfied with her speech and motor skills. Sarah is now in the 50-75% range for height and weight. She got her 15-month shots and didn't have any issues with those, other than the initial discomfort.
This week we assembled the wagon Sarah received for her birthday. We have had several very nice days to put it to use, and she LOVES it.

Sarah has started doing a little bit of pretend play. She has been playing "night night" for awhile now - telling us "night night" and then laying her head down on her bear and smiling. This morning she put Bluebeary up to her sippy cup and made kissy noises like he was drinking. Then she held him up to her little microphone and made noises for him like he was singing. Very cute. She also enjoys trying on shoes. No shoes are safe. :)

A few days ago we discovered bubbles. This is Sarah's expression as she watched me blow bubbles over...and over...and over again:

Sarah isn't feeling well today. She woke up with a temperature of 102. Since then she has developed a runny nose and is just acting a little sluggish. She has been playing "night night" a lot and just wants to watch tv. She still won't cuddle though, so she can't be too sick! :)

We are looking forward to a visit from my parents and my brother and his family this weekend! They have been my motivation to clean the house and get our storage boxes filed away in the attic. Maybe we can even get pictures hung on the wall before they come! We'll see...

Rach, she is so precious! I can't wait to meet her in person! I hope she gets to feeling better!
