18 months (and 5 days)

Betti. Ohhhhh Betti.

My little baby girl is HUGE! I took her for her 18 month appointment today where she weighed in at 28 lbs and 34 inches tall. For all those you don't have a clue as to what size that is, she is in the 92% for weight and 97% for height.

Besides being our little amazon, she continues to be a physical being. When at the beach last week she loved getting into the sand and the water.

She met a cute little southern girl who didn't like the sand. Betti kept trying to give some to her but she kept running away.

I couldn't help but chuckle. My little girl looked like a complete knucklehead next to that adorable, clean southern belle.

It's starting to make complete sense that her first word was 'ball'.

She also loved running out into the waves.

And we enjoyed sitting in beach chairs playing with the water and sand.

It was so much fun to play with her at the beach. Marion hated the sand and water at this age and it made such a huge difference to play with a child who enjoyed it all.

In other Betti news, she still loves it when Marion chases her and beats her up. She's still a little hesitant to jump into situations but warms up quickly. She's learning new things all the time, which is probably my favorite part of being a parent. I love watching them learn and experience new things. And, last but certainly not least, Bettina gives the best hugs ever and has a huge, contagious smile.

We love you Betti Boo!
