15 Months

At 15 months, Karina has become hilarious. She says hi to LITERALLY every person we pass in grocery stores, parking lots, on the street. She will repeat anything you ask her, even saying thank you (which her 3 1/2 year-old sister still won't do because she is usually too shy). She spends most of her time bouncing and screaming with happiness and people still act impressed that she can walk- apparently she looks very tiny. She only wants Mommy to put her to bed (being dealt the daddy-card produces screams like she's being bludgeoned by her sister- not that we would ever know what that sounds like) and she says, "Hi Daddy" or "Hi Mommy" or "Hi Yeti" when she sees us, along with "Ho-mee" ('hold me') and roars like a monster with her claws in the air when you ask what a bear or a tiger says. She does monkey noises too. She also nods and shakes her head very purposefully when you ask her anything, though if she has no idea what you're talking about the answer is always yes. She is very imp-ish and runs away screaming and laughjing when you want her to come. She loves to take a bath ('bah!') and is very sad when Annalise gets out of the car and she is left behind. She is so funny and precious and sweet and cute it is insane. :)
