15…16…17 months….

At 15 months, our little girl is ever so full of energy. She has been running and dashing around ever since she got on her feet at 13+ months. She's definitely a keen observer, doing what the older 2 do. She's quite a daring one too, didn't even squirm when we put her on the swing. In fact, she enjoyed the ride. Her voice is also getting really loud. Is that a trait of this household?

Her brother and sister adore her. They are always ready to cuddle her and monkey around to make her laugh to their hearts' content.
She loves dogs too…Never fail to alert us of their presence. To our surprise, she was daring enough to touch one. When we visited grandaunt, she simply approached the big Labrador that was lazing in the living room. Little did we expect she could stretch her hands out to touch it.
She loves to scribble on her writing board. We noticed that compared to the other two, she was using her left hand a great deal more. Whenever given an object, she would pass it to the left hand even if we had given her in her right. A lefty?
It's just so lovely to see her everyday expressions!

At 16 months, she's looking so grown. In fact, she has started to sort of pose for the camera.
She has learned to used her little pointer to point. One more means of expressing her wants! She can point and show us parts of her body like eyes, nose, head, hair, legs and even stick out her tongue when we asked her to.
Learning to cuddle toys!
More of her monkey see monkey do…no fear doing what she sees the older ones doing.
Like Abel, she doesn't like the feeling of sand. She could refuse to walk when placed on it. However, with more exposure and proding, she finally overcame it. Irritated by it but still carry on with the play.

At 17 months, she's starting to speak. We could hear distinctly how she calls out to "papa", "mama", "jie joe" and "kor kor". We are also starting to hear things like "ball", "bird", "frog","play", "more".

Her comprehension is far more than what I expected. Pulling at my pants when I am preparing to go pick Keziah, indicating she wants to go along. Pointing to her shoes to tell you to put it on. Cover her mouth when she cough after she heard me telling the older kids to do so after only one encounter. She remembers and repeats every time she coughs or when there's something on her mouth. Once in awhile she will remember to sign "thank you" when you accede to her request of food. Just so amazing watching her.
