Willow At 16 Months

Fall has been so bonkers for us! We literally have been living out of suitcases this entire season. I haven't been keeping up with my poor lonely blog and you all must be going CrAzy ;)

I thought I would dedicate this post to my babe. Surprised?! I mean, it's been forever since I did a Willow update.

  • Willow loves to dance. She dances all day everyday and to all music. She often closes her eyes and gets real funky with it. Usually with her arms, if you know my style of dance it's pretty close to that...whoops. She also knows what twerk means...whoops.
  • We haven't gotten those cabinet locks yet because she hasn't been to interested in the cabinets just yet. When she does get inside the cabinet her go to is vanilla. You will often find her carrying a bottle of it around. 
  •  She LOVES food still. I am stoked that she is super into Kale, and will pound back a salad like nobodies business. I am hoping she keeps this up for a little bit longer. 
  • Willow is a social butterfly she will go to anybody and snuggle right in like she's known yah forever. Unless you are Uncle Gorgeous or Dave. Awwww and they want to cuddle her the most. Poor fellahs.
  • She just loves to be outside. Rocks, sticks, leaves, dirt, pine cones, water pretty much anything she will hold onto and study. Such a nature lover.
  • She loves her bath/showers. She will tilt her head back and let the water cascade down her face. She is such a dare devil so we have to really hold on to her tight in pools or lakes. She always is trying to go in head first and doesn't want you to hold onto her. As soon as she sees her lifejacket she starts crying hysterically. Not good.
  • She has a thing for dog leashes. She is always trying to walk the dogs and cat. She now has her own leash (from when I was the crazy cat lady for halloween) that has two cat stuffies attached to them which she walks proudly.
  • She isn't a gal of many words just yet. She says Meme (mom), Eye (hi), everything is Em and the rest I don't quite understand. She communicates by pointing to everything she wants/needs and can understand so much now.
  • This girl loves her books. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say we read at least 50 times a day.
  • I allow her to watch one-two shows a day. Her all time fave is the Wiggles, she even does the Wiggle dance with her fingers and a close second is Bookaboo. 
  • She loves her pets. Timbit & Lily are her faves because the pay more attention to her. She does love to feed Maple though.
  • She loves her baby and ducky. She sleeps with them every night. 
  • This girl is an avid toothbrusher just like her ma. If you try to give her a hand though she loses it. Such an independent little thing.
  • She still uses her binky for naps and nighttime. I am nervous for the day we take her beloved bink away from her. 
  • Willow is a very affectionate little girl. She is famous for her open mouthed sloppy smooches to anyone who doesn't mind a little slobber. She is also very cuddly, I love that.
  • Laughter happens  a lot around here. Willow loves to make people laugh and will laugh so hard with you. Way too much fun. 
  • She is always down for a game of tag.
  • Willow is a little prankster and loves to give you a good scare. She will shout loudly, put her hands up and make one heck of an expression. If you react she will do a solid belly laugh
  • She is very independent, spoiled, & stubborn. We are trying our darndest not to give her everything she asks for, but boy it's hard. We need to nip this so she doesn't turn out to be a little bratty'mc'brat. 
I am leaving out a whole whack of stuff because I really could go on forever. I will post a few photos from the past couple of months of my sweet babe.



  1. What a beautiful little girl! And nothing is better than the belly laughs from a little one. So precious!

  2. Your little girl is adorable. She looks so much like mine. We have that same coat and she runs around with pink boots and a white hat on too. Adorable!

  4. Look at Willow's sweet curls! Isn't it such a fun age? They are so full of personality and learn so much everday!!

  5. she is sooooo darling!!! i love your updates because consistently they remind me so much of lucy! she too is a dancer, a tooth brusher, and an affectionate social butterfly. but don't help her out, oh no, she must do it by herself, haha. i think willow does more funny faces though, hilarious, i love her sense of humor. lucy has a very playful sense of humor too and loves to play outside for hours. these two would love each other. i LOVE that third pic from the bottom, too adorable, and she looks so grown up and lovely in the one right before that. it is just a pure treat getting to know her.


Yessss, I love comments! Thank You xo
