15 Months Old and A Little Naptime Naughtiness

You certainly didn't think I would forget to post Eleanor's monthly picture did you? I didn't think so. It has been busy around our house and posting pictures has not been on the top of my to-do list. But today for your viewing pleasure you will find Eleanor's 15 month photo as well as a series of photos we have entitled "A Little Naptime Naughtiness."

First up, 15 month stats.
Height - 31.25 inches (75%)
Weight - 23lbs 2 oz (50%)
Cuteness - 100% (our doctor actually said that- I am not just saying that because I am her mom!)

This is typically the view we see of our sweet Kamikaze. Her backside. As she runs away as fast as she can. Can you see her sweet curls?

Next up, A Little Naptime Naughtiness.

On Saturday, Daniel put Eleanor down for a nap and came downstairs. I kept hearing the sound of rustling paper and asked Daniel if he had made sure all of her toys were out of the crib when he put her down. He said yes. Fast forward about 20 minutes. I could still hear E playing in her crib and occasionally giggling. She then started to fuss and Daniel went up to see if she had lost her paci. I heard Daniel begin to laugh when he entered her room. He then returned downstairs, grabbed the camera and said "you need to see this." My mind immediately went to the image of her hanging over the side of the crib trying to get out or in the crib with all of her clothes off and diaper to boot. How thankful I was when I walked in the room to find this and not one of the other scenarios:
Notice the red canvas tote on the floor and the coordinating canvas totes in their appropriate places on the changing table shelves.
Well, her little escapade did involve diapers just thankfully not the one she was wearing.

And here is sweet little Kamikaze proud of her new found skill of removing her tote from the changing table and emptying it's contents into her crib.

Needless to say, she did not end up taking a morning nap because she was so wound up from all her fun!

Love this little girl to pieces!!!!!

Kamikaze Strikes Again

If you look closely in the above picture you will see a nice little cut above my eyebrow. How in the world did that happen? Well, yesterday afternoon my sweet little Kamikaze and I were playing on the floor together. She would run up and give me a big sloppy kiss every few minutes. Unfortunately her little legs sometimes get ahead of the rest of her body and as she leaned in to give me a kiss she came crashing down on my face and hit me just right with her teeth. She immediately started to bawl and I quickly checked to make sure she had not knocked a tooth out. I had no idea I was bleeding. After E calmed down I went to wipe what I thought was slobber from my forehead only to see blood. I have a nice little knot and my brow area is pretty tender. This my friends, is life with Kamikaze. Thankfully she was not hurt and I did not require stitches.
