15 Months

What does 15 months look like?? Well around here, it looks like plenty of this.....

and a lot of this......

with plenty of smiles.....

and a whole lot of trouble!

My mischievous little Petunia is almost 16 months old, believe it or not, and pretty much rules the roost around here. She is
  • a handful
  • strong-willed
  • determined
  • persistent
  • bull-headed
  • stubborn... starting to get the picture?
But she also
  • is quick to give kisses
  • adores her brothers
  • can't nap without her green silkie
  • loves my 35 year old Raggedy Anne doll
  • hates to be in a room alone (unless she is being naughty)
  • can climb on pretty much everything, and does
  • is SUCH a daddy's girl
  • loves to be outside
  • can say Jacob's name clearer than any other word in her vocabulary

She is a sweetheart and a diva, a terror and a love-bug. She has been nicknamed the "winged-hair-howler-monkey" by her aunt, and nearly convinced her baby-hungry cousin not to have kids. In an instant she can light up my day and make me want to tear my hair out. But I love my little girl and wouldn't have her any other way!
