Happy 18 Months Melody.

We missed Melody's 18th month milestone the other day, my apologies. She sure has come a long way. Here are some of the things she can do:

She understands sign language and signs for:
Milk, water, bath, all done, apple, strawberry, out, sleep

She's got some words, but they're not always immediately apparent:
Hi, Dad, Mom, Grandma, hat, hot, baby

She can also:
Feed herself, walk, almost run, stand on one leg, stamp her feet, jump on the trampoline, climb stairs, clap her hands, pick up very small objects with her pincher grip, give a kiss, wave hello and goodbye, give hugs and high fives, and most importantly recognize what she should and shouldn't put in her mouth. She can even shake her head no and nod her head yes. Lately, she's been shaking her head no when we ask her it's time for bed, which has been trouble. She certainly understands so many more things than we realize. Often times she picks up a scrap and heads to the garbage to throw it away. Tracey even asks her to put away her laundry and she shoves them into the appropriate drawer when asked. Well, suffice to say she growing and developing quite well. We can't wait for the word explosion to happen, but certainly she understands a whole lot of what's going on around her. Happy 18 months Melody, it has been delightful so far keep up the good work!
