These stats mean more to me when I take the time to stop and compare them to something. For example: 32" tall is just short of THREE feet (I'm a math genius, I know). I have a child nearly THREE feet tall?!? Impossible. And, 27 pounds? That is 20 pounds heavier than Graham was when he was born...20 POUNDS! And don't even get me started on the 19" noggin! Lucy was 19 1/2" when she was born...her head now is almost as big around as the entire length of her body when she was born! Mind blown. She's growin' like a weed; a really cute weed.
The pediatrician was asking various questions as he was poking and prodding at Lucy, twisting her legs and feet around, watching her walk, listening to her heartbeat, looking in her ears, etc. When we were almost done he said, "So, how many words does she have in her vocabulary? 0-5? 5-10? 10-15? 15-20?..." Paul and I looked at each other and I said emphatically, "20 PLUS!" And he smiled and said, "Oh, I'm so sorry." So, because we were curious and because I'm a tad obnoxious, we came up with a list of words we hear frequently around our house; It's not completely comprehensive because she is adding new words every day, but this provides a pretty good snapshot of what this 18 month old is yakking about. In addition to all the animal noises; it's only fair that I acknowledge those since "moos," "roars," and "neighs" account for a good portion of her vocabulary.
And no, it's never quiet at our house.
