18 Months

Hello all!
Still here......and getting SOOOOO close to having a finished basement. Can't wait!!!! We start getting carpet tomorrow. I am so ready:) It will be a two day ordeal because we are replacing the carpet upstairs too. This is one two day thing I am okay with because when they are done, so is the basement.....mostly....we still have a few finishing details to finish, but the basement will be fully functional. Can I get a Woot Woot! As you can tell, I'm excited about this. I'm even more excited about being able to use the basement, the lack of mess in my house constantly (with the exception of what the family creates for me!), and some organization down there. Oh, the OCD organizational side of me can't wait:)
Since my camera cord is still sitting in some unknown location in the only unfinished part of the basement, I still don't have a lot to share with you. But I wanted to put something on here. So I'm going with what I have available:)

I can't believe that our little girl is already 1 1/2. She's still so petite, that I think I sometimes forget that she's getting so grown up. But she is. She's getting to have such a personality and cracks us up. It's so fun to see the differences between her and her brother. And it's hilarious to listen to their conversations with each other. She had her 18 month check-up last week, and everything looks great with her. She's still little, but that's okay:)

Height: 29 1/4 inches (this cracks me up! It took her a year and half to grow 10 inches)
Weight: 20 lbs 8 ounces (woo hoo! Finally hit the 20 pound mark)
*she's finally starting to feel a little heavy if you have to carry her around. I don't know if she will ever truly feel heavy because her brother (who still likes to be carried) weighs so much more than her, but after a while, the arm does get tired:)

Kamdyn is such a joy. I think she is equally a momma's girl and a daddy's girl. She definitely already is working on softening her daddy's heart. Something tells me this little one will not have a hard time getting what she wants out of her daddy. With her sweet little voice, and baby blue eyes, he's gonna be a goner. She is also such a little talker. We have no idea what she is saying half the time, but she's starting to get a pretty good vocabulary. I think she's got about 24-25 words now. But most of the time, she uses the same ones all day long. Her favorite words are yeah, mommy, daddy, bubby, doggy, and no. She is such a little daredevil. Not really used to this at all. Eli was not very daring, and still is pretty cautious, but not Kamdyn. She sees everything Eli does, and thinks she can do it too. She has to do everything her brother does, whether she's big enough to do it or not:) She keeps me on my toes for sure. She is full of energy and is always on the go and constantly crawling all over me. She wears me out! I'm excited to see how much more she grows and changes in the next couple of months and as she transitions to being a big sister. That could be interesting:)
