Blaire: 18 Months


This little girl. Her cheesy, crazy smiles are just getting cuter and cuter. She is such a little busy bee. She is learning lots of new words and is getting great at repeating words and animal sounds. She can show you most of her facial features (nose, ears, eyes, mouth) and her hands and feet when you ask where they are. She also knows some animal noises. She has this farm animal app that is helping her learn lots of animal names and noises. It’s so cute to watch her repeat them. My favorite is when they show the llama, and she looks at me with a confused little face and says, “Mama?” It is so adorable. IMG_6817

She still has 13 teeth, with the 13th coming in super slow! She is mostly in 18 months clothing, but we’re shifting her to 24 months for fall. She finally has enough hair for a pony tail or pig tails, and I love it!

This girl has the biggest heart. She loves to blow kisses and give hugs. She’s so sweet, but also ornery. She loves to hand out the juice cups at daycare, but last week she decided it would be just as fun to offer their juice cup and then take it back and laugh. Naughty! I just can’t believe how much my baby girl is continuing to grow up. These pictures from when she was 6 months, and then a year later, now that she’s 18 months is just mind blowing to me. Where did my chubby little baby go?! Now I know why people get such serious baby fever… 6 Months vs 18 Months text

    Thanks for the friend request on Mom Bloggers Club! It’s very nice to meet you and you have a lovely blog! I haven’t met too many Trista’s in my lifetime, so it’s nice to meet another. :) Love the 18 month update. She sure is a cutie. Our youngest is almost 1 and is just about in 24 month clothing! He’s a chunk. He just now starting to take off with the walker. It won’t be long before he is running behind the almost 5 year old. :) Am your newest Bloglovin’ follower.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
