And yes! Juliette hit the 18-months mark today! It seems just like yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital!

Weight: about 26 – 27 lbs  (it’s an estimation based on her last records
Length: about 32.5 inches
Hair: curly, brown and getting near to her shoulders (well past if you pull it straight)
Teeth: 16 that I can count
Words spoken: about a dozen
Talents: walking, running, climbing stairs, dancing, feeding herself, drinking from a (plastic) glass not a sippy cup, putting her dirty diaper away in the garbage bin, throwing tantrums (!), saying no no no noooo, taking her socks off, defending herself against children who take toys from her or pinch her, climbing on sofas or chairs, helping me to take the clean dry laundry out of the rack, and my favorite: giving us big hugs and kisses
Favorite things: Hello Kitty, her small stroller (toy), Noddy, going out, pushing the stroller, swimming (in the bath tub, pool or the ocean),  books especially the ones with noises or flaps, watching DVDs of Noddy-Baby Einstein and The Little Princess, animals, doing stickers, putting our shoes on and walking with them, looking at herself in the mirror, looking at photos of her, playgrounds, pressing on the elevators buttons, turning on/off any light switches she can find actually, taking Tylenol (!) and sweeping the floor (Juliette’s way).
Favorite food: she’s becoming more selective of what she wants to eat. Anyway, she wants to eat the same food as us in general. And she still wants to nurse… which she does every morning and some days even more…

Et oui ! 18 mois aujourd’hui ! J’ai l’impression de l’avoir rammenee de l’hopital a la maison juste hier !!

Poids : environ 12 – 12.5 kg   (c’est une estimation selon les derniers mesurements
: environ 82 cm
: boucles, bruns et touchent ses epaules (meme plus longs s’ils sont mouilles)
Dents :
16 que je peux compter
Mots parles
: environ une douzaine
: marcher, courrir, monter les escaliers, danser, manger toute seule, boire au verre et non pas a la tasse de bebe (!), jeter sa couche sale a la poubelle, piquer des coleres (!), dire no no no noooo, enlever ses chaussettes, se defendre contre les enfants qui la pincent ou lui piquent ses jouets, monter sur les chaises et les canapes, m’aider a retirer les vetements secs du sechoir, et mon prefere : nous faire des gros calins et des bisous !!
Activites preferees :
: Hello Kitty, la poussette jouet, Oui-Oui, aller se promener, pousser sa poussette, nager (dans le bain, a la piscine ou a la mer),  livres surtout ceux qui font du bruit ou qui ont des volets a soulever, regarder les DVDs de Oui-Oui – Baby Einstein ou La Petite Princesse, animaux, faire des gommettes, enfiler nos chaussures et marcher avec, se regarder dans le mirroir, regarder des photos d’elle, les aires de jeux, appuyer sur les boutons d’ascenseurs, appuyer sur n’importe quel bouton, prendre le Doliprane (!) et laver le sol (a sa maniere).
Nourriture preferee :
Elle devient plus difficle, maintenant, elle choisit ce qu’elle veut manger. Elle mange en general la meme chose que nous. Et je l’allaite encore au moins une fois/jour, tous les matins parfois plus…
