21 months

People ask me how old you are and I find myself torn between saying 1.5 and 2. You are much more mature than a 1.5 yr old, but I cant accept that you are almost 2! What happened to my little bambina? Well, you are much more you own self these days, as you can communicate and do many things for yourself. You love your laptop that Nanna gave you, and playing with your baby doll, which you named poo poo.
You sit on the potty now no pees or poops yet, just sitting and enjoying her new chair...but what is great is that you know what its for, and when you are ready you will make something happen.
While you sit on the potty, you read about a girl named Molly, who is a big girl that has a pink potty just like you-you love repeating her name-Molly-it is precious

You love when daddy carries you to walk sadie at night-b/c he points out the stars.

You love your "Leur Leurs"
and your music class-we listen to the songs nonstop-trot now jo and a song called me, you, we are your favorites.

you love yogurt/crackers/any fruits/now you even like carrot sticks/
fish tacos/toast with cinnamon/cereal
You also started drinking from a cup, but likes to spill it on purpose...then loves to wipe it clean
Loves putting your toys away-especially in class. You will take other kids toys to the bin when the teacher says its time to clean up-hah
Likes to pour sand up your pants-you must like how it feels on your skin.
Hates wearing socks and tends to throw off your shoes, while riding in the stoller.
People tell me your toes will get cold...

These days...

You like to put on mamma's shoes. You prefer to wear certain items-clothes that I put on, you usually scream at. You would rather wear your elmo hoodie or your fuzzy pink vest!

Your favorite breakfast is whole wheat toast with butter and cinnamon. This is mamma's favorite too, and I enjoy sharing this time with you...even if it means giving up half my share, because you want more..more....please (peez as you say) How could I say no? You also started to enjoy eating sliced oranges! and how did you know how to eat them the correct way-avoiding the skin...

you love your baby doll again. When aunti Li Li babysat, she said you were burping the baby over your shoulder, that is so sweet!

Lately, we have been walking to the brentwood farmers market on Sunday mornings. I like going early, because it isn't too crowded and people are certainly more friendly then. After we get some fruits and veggies, we head over to the playground at the school nearby. I love the circle garden they have, and you like to sit on the rocks and run around collecting pine cones, not to mention listening for the birds (or leur leurs as you like to call them).

You love to help mamma clean and throw your garbage out....well sometimes
You are talking so much, and like to immitate us now...oh I guess we need to start watching what we say!
You love to read your books, which makes us o so happy. Especially when it keeps you ocuppied when you first wake up in the morning!
You love your music class and memorized some of the songs, you insist on repeating the cd many times!
You love to be tickled! Especially when I read moo, baa, la la la to you....
Your smiles are changing, you have started to have a persed lip smile, that Daddy says is just like his when he was younger!
