Veda at 19 months

I thought I'd do a quick update on Veda. She is growing up before my eyes. 
-19 months old
-Loves to do anything her brother or sisters are doing.
-A Mommy's girl through and through. She refuses to go to nursery, yet when she sees my friend Jessica she runs at her with open arms for a hug, LOVES her daddy, and still walks around the house calling out for my mom. She is always happy to see me in the morning when I come and get her from her crib- but I think she is more excited when she sees Quinn first thing in the morning. 
-Really loves puzzles and books. She will pretty much always calm down if you offer to read her a book.

 -Loves backpacks, wearing Quinn's shoes, dressing up, or wearing something silly.
-She is very inconsistent with what she likes to eat. One day she'll love something, the next day she will refuse to even try the same thing. Although she consistently loves fruit and yogurt (and treats) :)
-Veda is still nursing. Usually 3 times a day. I've been trying to nurse her less and less, but the opposite seems to be happening. Maybe my milk is drying up, but she always wants to nurse for a long time. It's hard to refuse her when she's crying and bringing me the boppy. Any ideas on how to wean her? It's definitely ALMOST time. ha :)
-Veda is about the sweetest thing on the planet. She has all of us wrapped around her finger. Even Hendrix is pretty sympathetic to her (not ALL the time, but he is 3). Today I was smooshing a bunch of fire ants that were on our front porch. Veda comes up and starts stomping on them too since she copies everything that anybody does. Hendrix comes over and very sweetly says to Veda "You better stop little baby! They might bite your cute little toe-sies!"

I almost can't believe that I'm sharing this video with you. Just watch how incredibly cute she is and ignore me in the background. She is just the cutest ever.
