Shelby is 18-months as of today.
It's amazing just how much she has grown.
This time last year she was just 6-months old and not even crawling.
Now girlfriend is all about trying to walk up the stairs by herself, walk the dog by herself and imitate everything that we do.
She's also getting better at talking.
It's super cute but at times challenging because if she doesn't get her way on things she falls flat on the ground(wherever she is) and throws a tantrum.
It's nothing major, it's basically fall to the ground and lay there.
It's just not great when it's in the middle of the street.
I've mentioned several times on here in the last few months about the challenges we are having with Shelby's hitting and biting.
Well, I'm happy to say it's curtailed quite a bit.
I'm not saying she doesn't still do it, because she does.
It's just NOT as frequent.
We're getting fewer and fewer incident reports when we pick her up from school.
Funny to say, more of the incident reports we have been receiving have been about HER getting bite!
You have to laugh.
As for the hitting, she still has her moments but it's definitely not as bad as it was a few weeks ago.
I was starting to get really frustrated.
So, what do I think has helped?
I'm not sure but I know one thing, Brad and I both being on the same page and consistent with our reprimands has to be helping.
As I've said before, we're just trying to do the right thing and raise little Shelbs to be a sweet, loving, gentle soul.
Here's to hoping we're doing it all right!
