Dear Zahara: 18 Months

Dear Zahara,

Happy 18 month birthday! This was a month filled with family and friends as we celebrated the holidays. First, we had a wonderful visit with G-mom and Pop Pop. You spent most of the visit curled up next to them reading your favorite books.

We celebrated chanukah this month. You are officially in love with the holiday. Though you love the presents, it is the menorah that you can't get enough of. Chanukah ended last week, but every day you still point to our menorahs that we keep on display and ask to light candles. We now light a scented candle every night so you can watch the match light up in flames and catch the wick. Daddy is hoping this doesn't make you into a pyromaniac :)

You are talking up a storm now! You repeat everything we say, which can be both hilarious and dangerous. Sadly for  me, you now say your "f"s correctly. You used to make a fantastic whistling sound when you said any word starting with f--the best being fig and fish. We took this video of you earlier this month. Good thing we caught it on camera before the sound disappeared!

You are in such an adorable phase where you really want to help. You love cooking and cleaning. We sometimes put you to work, but the quality just isn't there.

Though this month was mostly fantastic, we did hit a few speed bumps. You were sick again. That makes three times in the past month. The doctor says it is totally normal for a baby your age to get sick, but it still makes mummy and daddy so sad for you.

Thankfully, you bounce back pretty quickly. Your energy, enthusiasm and absolute charm never cease to amaze us. We love you very much and wish you a very happy year and a half-birthday!
