Mildred is a year-and-a-half old today. In some ways it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but in others (like my lack of sleep) it feels much longer.
At about 2 and a half feet tall and just over 20 lbs, Milli is still very small – at least for her age. She’s still wearing 9-12 month pants, but we have graduated to some 18 month tees for the length… and in some cases the cut (I’m looking at you Carter’s). Seriously if you have a tall lanky kid go with Carter’s brand clothes… they are cut super skinny and we have to size up for their tops to fit around Mil’s waist.
In the last month, Milli survived her 1st trip to Chicago for cousin Annemarie’s wedding. She had a lot of fun at the wedding, especially going outside the church playing with the flowers.
I was impressed with how well Milli handled the 5-1/2 hour drive. I think it was the breaks we took in Terre Haute. She quite loves the Cracker Barrel where we stopped for dinner on the way up and the Books-a-Million where we stopped for a break on the way home.
Mil has also been able to spend a lot of time outside with daddy over the past few weeks, working on the tractors, and generally making a mess of herself.
I’ll be interested to see what the next few months bring… If we’re lucky, maybe they will bring hair…. but since she’s my child, she probably won’t be that lucky.
