Earlier this week, Cora got to blow out a candle in celebration of now being one and a half years old. Of course, the real function of her doing that was for Lincoln to know that he can now say she is a year and a half rather than one. And so far, he has told about 10 people that, so I think it worked!
Anyway, Cora got a clean bill of health at the doctor, and our clothing woes were explained. . . She is 34 inches tall, which is the 97th percentile for height! And her weight was 25 lbs, at the 75th percentile. Laura, I guess that explains why she is wearing some of the same size clothes as the twins :). At the same age, Lincoln was almost 33 inches tall, and weighed 21 lbs. She has been tall/long from the very beginning–it will be interesting to see if it continues or if her height tapers off.

Her hair still curls when it is wet, though as you can see, not nearly as tight now that it is longer. She greeted me when I came in to her room this morning by pushing her hair out of her eyes and saying, “Uh oh, bow” so that I would put the ever present bow in her hair. Really, all this bowmaking stuff–it’s purely functional. I just do it so she can see. Well, ok, maybe I enjoy it a little bit too. 🙂

Cora is walking up a storm, she has over 100 signs, and she has about 20 words. She loves doing anything Lincoln is doing, but she does let him know loudly when he is doing something she doesn’t like. She still gets the hiccups whenever she laughs hard, and she currently thinks that turning light switches on and off is the coolest thing ever, especially if she can get multiple switches in before Mommy realizes she is standing on the footstool to do it. Overall, she is sweet, beautiful, and adorable. And, no, I’m not biased at all.
