Milestones:

Maggie was a bit late in walking, about 16 months, but once she got the hang of it, it wasn't long before she was running.

She is quite the chatter box. Her speech isn't as clear as Evie's was, but she has a host of vocabulary words:
mama/mommy
dada/daddy
E-E (Evie)
nana
g'pa (grandpa)
g.dad (g'daddy)
g'ma (grandma)
shooooooooes (shoes)
shoooooooows (show)
Mick-a-mouse (Mickey Mouse)
'ot 'og (hot dog)
'ilk (milk)
'nack (snack)
teet (treat)
wanner  (water)
fader, 'on, 'oly 'it (father, son, holy spirit)

Maggie owns the playground. She can climb the steps and go down the slides all by herself!

She's up and down the stairs at home at lightening speed and can safely get on and off all the furniture.  We'll even find her standing on the tables (clothing optional).


Likes:

Maggie loves her G. Daddy like something fierce. She talks about him all the time. The moment she sees him, mama and daddy are old news and she's stuck to him like glue.

Cheerios & a "shoooooow" as part of her morning routine

Hanging with the big kids

Swings & slides (which she can do all by herself!)

playing with pens and coloring

figuring out how toys and things work

when we go pick up Evie from school

French Fries!!!!!!

Dislikes:

when mommy or daddy leaves

when we turn off Mick-a-mouse

when she gets in trouble for coloring on the walls

riding in the carseat, Tula, or sitting in the highchair too long (I STUCK!!!)

I wouldn't say she dislikes food, but she's not much of an eater. She eats a variety, but not a lot of quantity.

Other:

Maggie is a super happy kid.  Her moods are much more even than Evie's were/are.

Maggie is in to everything. There is no stone unturned.  She seems to be respectful in new places, but as I type she's figuring gout how post-it notes work and is sticking them all over herself.

Maggie is not much of a snuggler, but when she needs a hug she'll let you know.  She's also very sensitive to other's needs.  She will give Evie a hug if she's crying.

Maggie has a series of nicknames that include variations of:
The Jiggy One
Jiggity-Jig
Bugaboo
Buggy

If Maggie had a tagline it would be "I came in like a wrecking ball" - she's nonstop, all day (and night).

Boy do we love this girl!!!
