You @ 18 months layout

I can't believe Kaitlyn is already 18 months old! I stopped doing the month pages at 12 months, but I did one for 15 months so I figured 18 months was a good one to do (every 3 months til she's 2 sort of thing).

Journalling:
You have always had your own distinct personality, even as a tiny newborn. You are mostly happy, but very stubborn and you let your opinions be heard! At 18 months old you know what you want and aren’t prepared to settle for anything less than that, whether it’s kisses from mommy or daddy or that treat you noticed we hadn’t given you yet. You love the itsy bitsy spider song and twinkle twinkle little star, you could listen to those over and over. You are starting to love looking thru books, and TV is starting to get your attention, espcially shows where it’s people (not cartoons) like the Wiggles or 4 Square. You are a bit rough with the dog and he has taken to living in his kennel a bit more often to save his fur (that you like to pull!). You have a few words already including mama, daddy, baby (which you use for puppy and baby, bumpa (grandpa), papa (also grandpa), essat (what’s that?) and most recently'Hi'.. You started to walk 1 day before you turned 18 months. At your 18 month appointment you were 21 lb 9 oz and 31 inches long. you have grown so much and we love you! You are the light of our lives and you put so much joy in our world! xoxoxoxox

awesome LO! I love that the picture is in the "O" and the element you used for the date, hanging from the top. So cute!

Super cute! I'm joining those who love Kaitlyn in the "o"! Another great page!

In your journaling, I think your tense is off in your opening sentence. K isn't a tiny newborn anymore so I think you want "you were mostly happy."

love that you did all that journaling. It will mean so much to her (and you) later that you wrote all of that out.

I love this page! How did you do the handwriting on a digital page? Did you print it first?

I didn't - I WISH that was my handwriting! That's a font - Pea something or other - gogole 'Fonts for Peas' and you'll find a bunch of them. Smile
