Life With Ida : 16 Months

Ida is getting old and we're enjoying her so much at this stage. Last week, we got her out on a walk without the stroller or backpack. It was fun to see her slowly walk and observe everything around her. She held my hand the entire time and didn't stray from the sidewalk unless she was stomping on old wet leaves. (See more walks at #walkswithida)

I know this wasn't her first Christmas, but it felt like it because she was so young last year. She loved all the lights and music and playing with her new toys. She seems most excited about all the books she received and loves bringing them over to me to read. 
Ida has been doing more babbling and talking this past month. She says "yes" so quietly I can barely hear her. She is funny how she is so quiet most of the time, but then she'll be playing with Cora and running around screaming. It's always so loud that it surprises me coming from such a little quiet baby. They do lots of wrestling on the bed and there is constant giggling and screaming coming from the two of them.  Sidenote: yes, she is drinking from a bottle. We still keep a bottle of water next to the bed so she can help herself during the night.
Baby girl has started pumping her arms to get me to chant. When we go down the steps, she'll pump her arms so I start chanting "go! go! go!". The other day we set up the tent in the living room and she just stood in the middle of the chaos looking at me and pumping her arms. I chanted "tent! tent! tent!" and she just ate it up.
Ida (as always) is a big cuddlebug this month. I love getting home from work and having her run up for a cuddle. She's always lounging in my lap and I love having my hands free to play on my phone. Baby girl was sick most of winter break and when she's sick she wants even more cuddles than usual.
Ida loves to sneak into Ben's room and play music on his computer. She'll put on his headphones and play whatever song was playing last. She loves to steal the wireless mouse and find somewhere nearby to hide it. I love this sweet stinker and she makes me one lucky mommy!
