Darcy | Eighteen Month Update

This is about a month late but oh hey ho, when was I ever early on these update things, ha.
I can't believe where has the time gone!! She's come on leaps on bounds recently and it's amazing to watch..
I'll start with her routine, So she will wake up anything between 7-8am, breakfast is shortly after waking.. she'll have a nap at about 12pm for a couple of hours and either have lunch before her nap or after it just depends what time she had breakfast, then dinner is at 5-6pm and then we start getting ready for bed around 7pm.
Darcy has definitely started becoming slightly pickier about food and I'm so worried i'll have a fussy child, I'd find that so difficult to deal with, she does like fruit and vegetables so i can't complain there but it's getting protein in her which is quite hard.

She is now in 18-24 month clothes but still has some 12-18 that she fits in. She is in size 5 nappies.
Her speech is really coming on and she can say quite a few words. 
'there it is' 'doggy' 'no' 'yes' 'thank you' 'peppa' ooh and she can count to 4. Those are a few, i can't think of anymore but I am sure there is more.

She is very quick on her feet now and can pretty much run! She is also learning to jump at the moment.
She has her own little personality developing and she seems more like her daddy than me, in the way that she knows what she wants, she isn't quiet like I am ha, she can be soo sassy too! I think some of the toddler tantrums have began too! But they aren't too bad. 
Darcy has a lot of teeth now, I couldn't count how many as there are lots! She hasn't been too well over Christmas/ Winter period she has caught every cold/cough going! Poor thing.

There are few changes that will be happening in the next couple of months.. 

-Taking the dummy away.

-Taking the bars off of her cot bed to turn it in to a cot bed.

-Taking the bottle away before bed

-Potty training

Any advice on this would be much appreciated!! 
Thanks for reading
