At her 18 month doctor's appointment all checked out well - she now weighs almost 27 pounds and is 32 1/2 inches tall. This puts her around the 90th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. Still a big girl! Our pediatrician said that she is "very advanced for her age." (I know, I know.... I'm sounding like one of THOSE parents).
Her vocabulary has absolutely exploded. She can say at least 50 words? Maybe 100? She'll basically repeat anything you ask her to and knows the names of most objects. She's able to express herself enough now to where it's not a guessing game as to what she wants. She can follow basic instructions and grasps the potty idea (somewhat - we're not there yet!).
Everyday Saige says something new and we scratch our heads as to where she learned it. At dinner recently she lifted her sippy cup, said "Cheers!" and insisted we clank our glasses with hers. We figure the last time we did a cheers was Thanksgiving and she must have remembered!
As for her personality, we describe her as a goofball. She loves to tease, laugh and joke around. Tica patiently tolerates Saige as she puts sunglasses on her, forces her to play the harmonica and gets ridden like a horse.
Grandpa Steve was just here for visit and we all had a great time. Saige calls him "Paba." His heart had melted to puddle by the time he left.
Saige is absolute joy and we are having a blast!
Saige and Cousin Jack
