All About Amelia - 22 months old!

Amelia, you're 22 months old!

We have no clue how much you weigh but would guess you're over 30 lbs now.

You wear a size 5 diaper. We tried switching to a 6 but they were way too big.

Your love for the paci runs deep. Real deep. Mommy jokes that she's going to have to send you off to paci rehab when the time comes to take it away. :)

You wear 2T clothing and a size 5.5 - 6 shoe. Speaking of love wearing Mommy's high heels and are really good at walking in them!

You have lots of teeth that have come in but won't let us count them! Mommy has tried to count them while brushing your teeth but it's just too much work while trying to keep you happy. You like Daddy to brush your teeth more than Mommy. :)

You go to bed around 8pm and wake between 9-10am. You take a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon.

Some of your favorite foods/treats right now are: eggs, rice, cheese pizza, golden grahams cereal, and rice krispie treats.

You learned how to open the refrigerator door on vacation and then came home and taught yourself how to open the one at home. We may have to get a padlock. ;)

You love helping Mommy in the kitchen.

You love Veggie Tales (or as you call them "Tale-Tales") and the cartoon, Olivia (or as you call her "Ivia" and "Pig").

Some sweet things you're saying lately:

"side you" (when you want us to come sit beside you)
"bless you" (when we sneeze)
"love you too" (when we say we love you)
"hold it" (when you want us to hold you)
"you funny" (when we make you laugh)
"hand now" (when you want us to hold your hand so you can lead us somewhere)
"baby in belly" (when talking about the new baby)

You've also told your Daddy "I pregnant, see" and lifted your shirt to show him your tummy. (LOL)

Amelia, we're seeing less and less baby and more little girl when we look at you. It's fun and sad at the same time. We miss that chubby-cheek baby girl but love hearing you say and learn new things every day.

We love you to the moon & back, sweet girl.

Daddy & Mommy

Sweet girl. I love her sayings...especially "hold it" :) I loved it when D would say "hold you" and I miss it so much. It turned into "hold you me" and is now "hold me". It may sound different but the request is still precious. :)

I hate to tell you this but you need to work on getting her paci away. When my daughter went to the dentist he said she needed to get rid of it because it was pushing her teeth out!
Good luck
