Beth is 18 Months!

When I took her in for her check up today the doctor said, "She really does look older then 18 months." She has climbed up the charts to the 86th% at 33 and 1/2 inches tall and a whopping 15th% at 21.8 pounds.

She acts more like a teenager than a 1 and 1/2 year old. She is great at flirting and loves it when people smile at her. And while she doesn't cry much, she does yell a lot. She also has a bubble of space and heaven forbid you cross it before she's ready. She is on a growth spurt right now and that means getting up at 2 or 3 in the morning so hungry she can't sleep. Normally I am all for letting her put herself back to sleep but when she's growing like this she'll yell pitifully until she's fed.

She LOVES to tease her brother and it drives him up the wall; and when he does the same thing to her she just laughs. I am starting to believe that she in an unstoppable force of nature. Behold our Beth! This is her one morning when I failed to get her down from the table when she first asked. She proceeded to rub yogurt all over her body and hair. You can also see the little topknot we put her hair in when she eats.
This is her playing peek-a-boo around the treadmill with Aunt Alison while watching the BYU-OU football game (Go Cougars!).
And this last one is a video of her talking and running around, just being Beth. We are so thankful for our little girl.

Beth is definitely a force to be reckoned with... and she puts a smile on my face.
