Miss Firecracker

Here are the pictures of Meredith from 4th of July weekend. She is growing so fast and turned 15 months old on July 2nd. I am going to blink and before I know it, she will be 2 years old. She is running all over the place. In fact, she loves to be chased! She loves to play with Jonah and all of Jonah’s toys. I mean I guess a batman helicopter is more fun to play with. However, she is very girly except that she will not keep bows in her hair. But she has developed quite an obsession for shoes…not sure where she get that from! Ahem. She loves all kinds of food. Everything from steak to pickles. She is very ticklish and has the best belly laugh ever. She loves books especially anything by Karen Katz and wants to read when she first wakes up in the morning and of course before she goes to bed at night. She waves and blows kisses to everyone. She can say Daddy, Hi, Doggie, Book, More, Mama, Bear, Uh-oh, Night-Night and Five (she likes to give high fives). She still doesn't watch TV which I guess is a good thing but I really miss being able to turn on Baby Einstein like I did with Jonah when I need to set her down to get something done. She is still madly in love with Riley and loves to follow him around, pet him, throw his toy for him and give him hugs and kisses. She gets very excited when Jonah walks into her classroom at school. Watching Jonah and Meredith interact with each other often leaves me speechless and sometimes in tears because they are so loving and caring with each other. I’m not even sure I can explain it in words. She is a great sleeper and is very set in her routine at night. This is a good thing because in the Schneider house we like our sleep! In fact tonight after her bath she walked into her room went straight to her crib and started shaking the rails. When I sat down in the chair she picked up a book and walked over to my lap and tapped on my knee to indicate she wanted up. How’s that for non-verbal communication? After we read, I put her in her crib and then turn out the lights. Very rarely do I even hear a peep or see her little head pop up as I walk out the door. She loves to brush her teeth and finally has a mouthful of teeth to brush. She loves to dance and when she hears music she will start spinning around in circles clapping and smiling. Okay, I could go on and on about all the things that she does now but I’m sure you have other things to do so I will just move on to the pictures. Enjoy!
