Letters to My Daughters | 18 months

Dear Eleanor,

You’re 18 months old!  A whole year and a half!


Your personality is blossoming more and more every day!  You’re trying to communicate with us, and you get so frustrated when you can’t.  The time is coming when you’ll be able to tell us what you want or need; one of these days you’ll figure out that you can say words and sentences and getting what you want will be a little easier!  😉


We got you some new pink shoes and you LOVE them!  You HAD to have them when we found them in your size (you wanted us to put them on you right there in the store!), and you love wearing them around.  Even over your footie jammas.


Your new pink shoes on your footies! Please note the toys and stuff on the floor. That’s all you. 🙂

Other than your new shoes, some of your favorites right now are:

Foods: Cheese, grape tomatoes, mini sweet peppers, watermelon, pickles, whatever Mommy is eating
Drinks: Ice cold water and breastmilk (yes, you’re STILL nursing.  All day AND night.  It’s good for you and all, but you can cut back anytime now…)
Toys: Blocks and Duplos, Busy Bee, Laugh and Learn Puppy, Little People stuff
Activities: Cuddling, playing outside, drawing with crayons, climbing on things


I love you, my wee little girlie!  Even if you don’t let me get a good night’s sleep, run off with my cell phone multiple times a day, lure me into the kitchen just so you can play in the fridge, lure me in the kitchen so I get you a snack that you take one bite of then start whining for something else, unfold the laundry right after I’ve folded it, and cry because…well, most of the time I don’t know.  I love you no matter what.

You and the remote...the other thing you love to run off with!

You and the remote…the other thing you love to run off with!




This month I’m linking to Emily Jackson | Cat and the Fiddle Photography‘s beautiful words to her sweet little girl!  After you read Emily’s letter, please continue around the circle of wonderfully talented ladies and read the letters they’ve written for their little girls.  Last month’s letters were amazing, and this month’s are sure to be as well.
