  • uses a fork by herself
  • loves taking baths
  • can say short sentences, some of my favorite thus far include "Nan (who was no where near us at the time) has a boo-boo." "That dog is crazy." "Uncle Craig is a good girl."

  • will sometimes call her father by his first name:

  • says "hi" and "bye" to almost everyone we see...ever
  • is very gentle with babies
  • likes to brush her own hair
  • loves dancing with her dog

An 18-month old Scarlett...

  • says "OW, boo-boo" as she's taking off her shoes in the car...as if to suggest a boo-boo is the reason she is taking off her shoes in the first place despite her parents yelling "LEAVE YOUR SHOES ON!"
  • wants to do everything by herself
  • sits in booster seats in restaurants:
  • loves to read, and says "the end" before shutting a book:

An 18-month old Scarlett...

  • wants to unload the dishwasher
  • invented her own "Scarlett Says" game. We must do everything she does - from touching our heads to spinning in circles to stomping our feet, etc., etc. (etc. etc. etc. - I'm seriously amazed at how many gestures this child can come up with to ensure we continue to play said game.)
  • loves tapping her toothbrush on the sink after brushing her teeth, just like daddy

Yay Scarlett--big girl! I can't believe our little babies are babies anymore. :( And I can't believe how much she's suddenly doing! (and I can't believe you are encouraging her to cry).

It's official: We haven't seen you guys in a really long time. She was only doing like half of this stuff when we saw you last.

Carson misses his Scarlett. He was watching this whining: Sar-let...Sar-let... But then he saw his train book and got over it. Still, can we get together sometime ever???
