18 Months Old

Our sweet Jenny is now a year and a half old!

Her development amazes us each day.  She lets us know when she is hungry, wanting milk,  and when she is finished doing something. She'll tell us when she'd like to be picked up or put down, too.  She can "feed" her animals, put her toys and books away, understands hot and cold, is able to say I Love You in Sign and knows the appropriate time to use it.  She can communicate "milk" in Chinese, English and Sign!  She brushes her teeth--somewhat, she chews on the toothbrush a lot (Loves that minty fresh flavor!)--she scribbles with crayons, but makes sure she has her coloring mat in place first! She's good at using please and thank you and so many other incredible things!

I love that she is full of curiosity.  She recently discovered these tiny magnet "men" we have, and loves to discover all of the things around the house that they stick to!

She participated in her first Hanukkah Blessings and lighting of the menorah, and she received her first Hanukkah gifts from Zayde, too!

Friday Jenny Mei enjoyed latkes with her cousin and aunts and uncle.  Saturday she spent the day with her New Jersey cousins, aunt and uncles, then came home for her first Christmas Eve feast with Mommy, Daddy and Grandmommy!  Sunday Jenny Mei spent the morning (all morning!) ripping open all of her Christmas presents from under the tree! The wrapping paper was a hit as were the many gifts from friends and family! We had a festive and fun day with new traditions and old, like celebrating a Jewish Christmas by having Chinese food for dinner, although this year we went Thai instead!  Tante Sheilah joined us as usual!

There's nothing like the holidays with children!  Their excitement and joy brings out the kid in all of us!
