All About Amelia - 16 months old!

Amelia, you're 16 months old!!

Your Granny, Aunt Joy, and I sang Happy 16 months to you this morning.

In harmony.

You appreciated it. I could tell.

You weigh a little under 25 lbs. You've been sick and your appetite hasn't been that great...it has caused you to lose some weight.

You're 32 inches long.

You wear a size 4 diaper.

You're wearing 18 month clothing and size 5 shoe.

You go to bed at 8pm and wake between 9:00-9:30 every morning.

You had peanut butter for the first time. You refused to eat it on a sandwich so I just gave you pieces of wheat bread and let you eat the peanut butter with a spoon.

You loved it! :)

You're very particular when you're finished eating. As soon as your finished you want us to remove everything from your tray. If we don't get there fast enough - it might very well end up on the floor. You're new way of letting us know that you're finished is by picking up your plate and handing it to us while saying, "No...No...No...No..."

Your favorite word is No.

You have 10 teeth right now. A new one seems to be popping through every week!

You didn't like the snow - you would cry every time you were put down to stand.

As long as Daddy was holding you - you were fine.

You can say so many things. Too many to list. I'm amazed every time you repeat something I say. It has been a great reminder that little ears are always listening.

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." Ephesians 4:29

You have moments when you challenge what we tell you - but you're very sensitive to our correction. You have a tender heart and you're such a sweet girl.

Your Granny informed me that you're no longer a baby - you're a toddler. I'm fighting this one.

I think we tell you that we love you about 1,000 times a day.

I'm sorry it's not more.

We love you to pieces, Amelia.

You're our sunshine.

Daddy & Mommy

Okay, I'm loving that yellow and Grau outfit she's rockin'! It does make her look like a big girl and not a baby. I'm very into yellow and gray right now.

Oh I love that sweet girl! I'm not used to seeing her with accessories in her hair. She rocked the big yellow flower! Too cute!! :) Can't wait to see her again (and you too!). I hope A feels better soon.... I think we are all finally well. Love you!

So cute, and I love her yellow headband!

Shannon said...

Love her grey and yellow outfit! :) I think finding out their little quirks is so fun. I love it that she wants all the food removed pronto! So funny! She is precious!

Oh my goodness, that first picture. What an adorable, be-flowered imp! And the one of her boots, and the last one where she's looking up... excellent shots!
And the line about saying, "I love you" 1,000 times a day but wishing you said it more - perfection. I'm going to tell my baby I love him right now.

That yellow head band is too much! Oh dear! I'm not sure what I will do if she gets any cuter!
