I can't believe Haven Annabelle is 18 months old today. The time has flown! Adam and I are so blessed to have such a silly, smart, and amazing daughter who keeps us on our toes and warms our hearts daily. We are so in love with her!
Haven is talking so much lately! She says many sentences and surprises us with new "connections" she makes daily. Things like telling her Grammy that "Mommy said so" when she wanted to watch a movie. Or instead of saying "Daddy's home!" when Adam comes home she says, "Daddy's house!" Or telling us "I not a baby!" Haha. She is into saying "too" at the end of all of her sentences. This morning she said, "I want nana and axtwo!" I was like, "What is axtwo?" Finally, I figured out that she was saying, "I want nana and eggs, too!"
She is so silly and loves to dance, attempts to sing, and is very interested in anything I am doing. I have been trying to include her in things like cooking, baking, cleaning, unloading the dishwasher. If only her enthusiasim about helping mommy out would continue into her teenage years! :)
Haven's favorite things to play with are mommy's purses and bags, mommy's scarves, crayons and coloring books, blocks, babies, books, and her grocery cart/play food. She is very imaginitive and I think she is pretty darn smart (I know all parents think that, haha).
People are always commenting on how much older Haven seems to them and how energetic and full of life she is. Although she completely exhausts me at times and is starting to test her limits, I couldn't imagine her or want her any other way. She is so social and loves people, is so sweet and caring, and is so happy and silly.
