All About Amelia - 21 months old!

Amelia, you're 21 months old!

We don't have an official weight for this month, but we're thinking you're close to 30 lbs now.

You wear a size 5 diaper.

You're wearing 2T clothing and wear a size 5.5 shoe.

Last time we counted, you have 16 teeth with a few coming through any day now.

Speaking of teeth, brushing yours twice a day had become challenging. You cried the entire time. Not exactly the way we like to start and end the day. :) We bought you an automatic toothbrush and let you decorate it and put your name on it. It has helped A LOT! Mommy usually jumps around and makes you laugh while Daddy brushes them as quickly as possible. It's a great workout for Mommy! The things we do as parents. (LOL)

You go to bed at 8pm and wake between 9:00-10:00 every morning. You usually take a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon.

You love popcorn.

You're also a fan of Mama's chocolate chip cookies.

You take your baby (which you've named Caillou), your bunny rabbit, and your glow worm every where. You have to have them in your bed when going to sleep.

You try to feed your baby your food or give her your milk. Mama caught you cleaning her ears with a Q-tip the other day. You diaper her, put socks on her feet, and feed her a bottle. You take very good care of your baby.

You've decided you like the grass now. You will lie back but refuse to lay your head in it. You used to not even walk in it, so this is huge!

You love to lie on your back and want us to come join you. We don't know why but you think this is so funny. You say "Daddy...Mama...BACK" while patting the floor. You laugh so hard when we come and join you!

Noah's Ark is your FAVORITE book. You ask Daddy to read it every night before bed. We ask you who the guy with the beard is and you say, "Noah."

You say "please", "thank you", and "sorry."

One of your favorite movies is Father of the Bride. You ask to watch "George."

Mama asks you if you're her baby or big girl and you always say "baby." This makes Mama so happy!! :)

Every day when Mama puts on her deodorant, you ask for "some" and raise your arms. Mama always pretends to put it on you.

You love to play catch!

When we ask what you want Daddy to cook on the grill, you say "dogs." You won't eat a hot dog unless it's grilled!

Some of the new things you're saying now.

"Ewwww, Mama" (when you think something is gross)
"I no like it"
"Love you"
"Hurry, Mama"
"Bye, see you"
"I hear birds" (When we're outside and ask you what you hear)
"Move it" (You just started saying this and get in trouble for it. No clue where you picked this up!)

Amelia, you just get sweeter as the days go by - if that's even possible! We love you so much!!

Daddy & Mommy

I loved the pictures. The one in the car seat melted my heart. She is such a beautiful gift from above. I enjoyed reading about her so much.

Sweet girl!!! "Move it" cracks me up! Nothing more precious that a little girl and her baby doll!

PJ said...

I can just picture you dancing the jig to get her to brush! Too funny!

Love the update!

We talked about that sweet Amelia (and her sweet mama!) several times this past weekend in Charlotte. Can't get over how precious the both of you are. :-) I love these updates! Love you friend!
