18 Months


Dear Little Cheetah:
Holy cow! How are you a year and half already? When Daddy and I were flying home from Texas the other day, we sat on the plane and looked thru 5,000 pictures from my old iphone. It spanned over the last 3 years. We saw the pregnancy tests pics, we saw my belly getting bigger and bigger, we saw the pictures of me drinking that nasty orange juice, and so many more and then pop! there you were. My phone pictures were instantly all about you. We looked through you growing over the last year and half. Time really goes by so fast. I feel like we left for Austin on Thursday, came back on Monday and you were not a baby anymore. These last few weeks I can actually see how much you are developing everyday. You are so smart. You say more and more words everyday. I know you can understand everything I say to you now. You like to shake your little head yes, or no to everything I ask you. You say “mama” ALL THE TIME NOW!! You like to be a little helper. You want to be involved in everything. Your favorites are throwing things in the trash and putting wet clothes in the dryer. Your personality is getting bigger by the moment. You are so full of life- you seek adventure like no other kid I know. You keep us busy from the time you wake up, to the time you go to bed. I am so happy it is finally warmer out. Each day now, the world is our oyster. You are at such a fun age to go out side and play. Everything else seems unimportant in comparison to the fun of being outside with you. The laundry is piling up, the dishes aren’t done, but it doesn’t seem to matter because when we are out exploring we are in our own magical world. The big smiles that flash across your face as you see birds, dogs, other kids, etc. melt my heart. You never want to come inside. We love you so much little Rowan. You have made our hearts 3x the size they were 18 months ago.

With all my love,
