Favorite Book: She has a lot of favorites. Anything written by Sandra Boynton ("Little Pookie" series), "Little Blue Truck's Christmas", "The Nose Book", etc. She will happily sit in my lap while we read 27 books in a row. I love it!
Favorite Toys: She got so many things for Christmas, which is nice because I don't usually buy her any toys between her birthday and Christmas! So she has had a great time playing with some new things! She loves her kitchen, table and chairs, baby dolls and all of their accessories. She also loves her Elmo "ABCs on the Go" puzzle. I thought that might be a little challenging for her since it is 26 pieces, but she completes that thing in no time and takes them all out and starts again! Smartie pants!!!
Favorite TV show: She LOVES the "Wonder Pets"! We just happened to be given a "Wonder Pets" DVD a year ago and put it on for her a couple of months ago and she is obsessed. We usually just play it in the car when we have places to go. It has been a big hit and a lifesaver for Mommy & Daddy! It is so cute to listen to her "sing" the songs or mimic their words. Such a cute show, I enjoy listening to it too! :)
Favorite Body Part: Her belly button! She loves touching her belly button, especially while she is falling asleep. Ha! She also likes for Mommy & Daddy to lift up their shirts to show her their belly buttons. Not really our favorite thing to do... especially when she jabs her finger in there!!
Favorite Snacks: Popcorn, mandarin oranges, black olives, crackers, and FRUIT!
Sleeping in a "toddler bed". After Christmas she pretty much refused to go down in her crib, like literally would scream for over an hour.... So, we lowered her crib mattress and removed one side and converted it into a little toddler day bed! She loves it! No more rocking her to sleep. We just lay her down and sit next to her for a little while until she is sleepy enough to fall asleep.
Now that she is no longer confined, she will get out of bed, open her door, and come out of her room once she wakes up! Definitely weirded Mom & Dad out the first couple of times! She's on the loose!!
Lives to be outside! Rain, shine, or snow. She wants to be taken for stroller rides, ride her tricycle, or push her baby dolls down the street in their stroller constantly! She also loves going to the park!
She is now able to climb the steps and slide down the little slide at the park all on her own. She also loves watching the big kids!
She loves going to Mother's Day Out! No more tears at drop off! Just walks in like a big and greets her favorite teacher, Miss Denise!
Teething! Her 4 canines are about to come through!
Talking up a storm! She is beginning to use short phrases and can say so many words! She also loves pointing at things and having you tell her what it is.
You have grown up so much in the last two months! It is such a joy watching you turn into a little girl before our eyes. You constantly amaze us with your intelligence and we will do just about anything to see your beautiful smile. We look forward to all the great things that 2017 has in store for our family. We love you so much!!!
Happy 20 Months!!!
