Sassy Pants is only one of many many nicknames we have for Juliet. Others include, Jules, Julesy, JZ, Stinker Bug, Stinker Butt, Little Chica, Cutie Patootie and baby girl.
I think sassy pants describes her best though. Seriously, I love this child....she cracks me up all day long, but she is SASSY! If I say, "Jules, come over here", she will turn and run in the other direction...even if she had previously been on her way over to me.
She loves to put her foot up on the counter. Chris will tell her to put it down and this is the exact look she gives him. Like she has no interest in what his opinion is on where her feet are. He'll go over and put it down for her, with a stern "no-no". She'll wait until he walks away and then she puts it right back up.
Our little supermodel...
A tea party for one...
For as sassy as she is, she's super sweet as well. She wakes up in the mornings and from naps and just talks and sings to herself for 5 minutes to an hour before she stands up and starts calling us. I went in to get her the other day and as soon as I opened the door, she just put her arms out and said, "Pease?" I love that at 18 months, she also says "daint doo" unprompted MOST of the time when she is given something.
Other things we're lovin' right now:
*Her sweet kisses that always come with a loud "muwah".
*The way she brings Aidric his cloud blankey and pats him on the back when she thinks he needs it.
*How she'll pick up a book and then back her way onto our laps to read it.
*Her amazing ever growing vocabulary. This is just SUCH a fun age and new words are added every day.....she'll repeat ANY word we teach her, and she uses quite a few on her own.
*How FEISTY she is. We were at the park the other day and a little boy pushed her to get by her on the stairs. She was on a rocking horse/toy a bit later and he walked up to her. Before he could even touch her, she looked down and GROWLED at him. He was totally shocked and backed away. His dad was cracking up that his 3 year old was "schooled" by an 18 month old girl! She can definitely hold her own!
What SHE'S loving now:
taking all of our kids cups/bowls out of the cabinet
bath time with Aidric
her disgusting lovies (2 have fallen apart...only 1 still standing)
