Goodbye 18 months! I will not miss you!

Today is the last day Tigger will be 18 months old.  18 months was a very trying month.  I'm really not sorry to let it go.  Tigger finally came back from the land of 'strange' back to the land of normal.  Well sorta....normal for a tyke. 

This morning was all smiles and laughter.  On the car ride to daycare, the lighbulb finally turned on and she realized that if she does certain things with her nose, she can hear the mucous rattling in there.  It made for her entertainment and laughter and squealing with delight all the way to daycare.  Wow.  Really?  I guess it's only a matter of time before the infamous phase of picking one's nose becomes popular. 

Either way, I am liking this temperament more than what was going on with the excessive teething and downed immune system.  While our little one's grow up really really fast and we are all supposed to want time to stop, I do have to say 18 months was not my all time favorite.

So farewell....I'm sure other months/years will be more challenging....I just am getting used to that idea.  Let me bask in cuteness for a while longer before the real nitty gritty parenting comes into play.

I finally have reached the land of no more pull-ups! I now carry a purse, not a diaper bag into places, and sippy cups are a thing of the past. There is a new horizon dawning and a summer of fun awaits!!!! Enjoy every moment! Life flies right by!!!

Lil Bit and Tigger are the same age!!! I never thought I would see such a sweet baby become a stinker.
