Amelia, you're 20 months old!!
You're 28.2 pounds and 34 1/4" long.
You wear a size 5 diaper.
You're wearing 24 month/2T clothing and size 5.5 shoe.
You have 13 teeth. You have 3 that have been trying to come in for the longest time. You aren't cranky but you've started chewing on lots of things which you haven't done since you first started teething. We feel so sorry for you - we know it has to be so painful.
You go to bed at 8pm and wake between 9:00-10:00 every morning.
You no longer let us rock you to sleep. You want us to lay you in your bed and you go right to sleep. This BROKE YOUR DADDY'S HEART. He always rocked you to sleep at bedtime. Another sign that you're growing up.
You love to hold hands.
This seemed to be the month to have junk food for the first time! You had M&M's, chips, lemonade, and a fruit smoothie. You of course loved them all. :)
You love ice. You hear the ice maker and you come running while saying, "ICE!!"
You have so much fun in your little pool. Mama only wishes it were bigger so she could join you for a swim! :)
Daddy gave you an old cell phone and you have "conversations" with people all the time.
You love your closet. We leave the doors open and have now made you a little place in there with pillows and blankets...you go and read your books or work on your puzzles. Sometimes we catch you in there with your paci (that you stole out of your drawer or bed)...like you just need a moment to yourself. HA!
You've started mocking us. You notice that Mama crosses her arms a lot...makes us laugh.
You walk around on your tip-toes until I put shoes on your feet. Even if you're in your pajamas - you want shoes!
You've started trying to jump. Oh how we laugh watching you! You jerk your head back and can't really leave the floor yet - but you think it's so fun!
You've started naming family in pictures around the house.
Your obsession with Caillou continues. We had a very lengthy wait/dining experience on Father's Day so we had to break out the paci and Caillou...instant peace.
You like to play with (pull) Mama's hair and say, "pretty."
You love your baby. You've started wanting her in your crib when you go to bed. You give her a paci, wipe her nose, and brush her bald head. You also tell us that she's gone "poo-poo" and bring us a diaper. So cute.
Since coming back from a trip at Granny & Papa's house - you sometimes call Mommy, "MOM." I don't know why, but it's so funny to hear you call me that!
You now say "thank you" without being prompted. Sometimes Mama will get on to you for something and afterwards you say, "thank you." HAHA!
Though you pretty much repeat everything now...here are a few other words you're saying a lot this month:
"I hold it"
"I do it"
Amelia, you just make every day a wonderful day! We love going into your room in the morning to get you out of your crib...you want to lay your head on our shoulder and snuggle while trying to wake up. If we close our eyes while we hold you - we imagine you're still that little baby we brought home almost two years ago. The one we could steal kisses from without worrying she would run away. You're most definitely our heart running around on those two little busy legs of yours. We love you so much.
Daddy & Mommy
