19 Months Old

My goodness!  Another month is a memory!  It’s crazy how fast times flies.  This really is the longest, shortest time.  Some days feel never ending, but then I blink and you’re SO BIG!

I honestly have no idea about measurements. I haven’t bothered with them at home and we haven’t been to the doctor.  She’s moved up to 24m pajamas- she got too tall for the 18m ones. But she can wear anywhere from 12-24m clothing.  Size 3-3.5 shoes.  We are finishing the boxes of 4 diapers and going to size up soon.

Her hair is SO LONG and growing so fast.  She asks for bows a lot, and it’s getting harder to fix her hair because she’s squirmy in the mornings.  She still loves to have her hair brushed and blow dried after a bath though! It’s one of her daddy and my favorite times.

She continues to grow into a toddler.  She’s telling us more about her pottying- we may try potty training this summer (gulp!).  She tries to help removing clothing- she wants so badly to do it herself, but she still needs help with shirts and pants.

She’s talking SO much and so well.  She struggles with the T and hard C sounds, but otherwise, mimics us well and also uses words on purpose well. Some new words: bug, chips, please, cup, cheese, school, church, socks, shoes, bubbles, eyes, nose, Elmo.  She says “Amen!” at the end of our nightly prayers.  She signs and says “more” when she wants more food or more books read to her.

She can count to two with us (sometimes. Toddler are anything if not inconsistent.)

She likes to play “night night”.  She hands me a blanket and lays on the ground.  I cover her up and tell her night night, then she closes her eyes. She will be still for a second then POPS up and laughs.

She also LOVES to read books.  She will point things out in the book (balls, buckets, eyes, Elmo) and will act out things when I ask her (stomping, crying, sleeping, dancing).  We love to read together.

She can handle steps all by herself.  Sometimes she more crawls up them, but she can take big steps with a hand or the handrail. And she can sometimes step down or she will sort of sit and scoot to the next step.  She loves stairs and ramps.

She is doing well eating with a fork and spoon, and while she can often scoop food herself, she prefers for me to do it for her.  She takes a bite and hands me the utensils to reload.

She is FINALLY EATING EGGS!  I made an egg casserole with spinach, rotel and feta cheese and she will eat it!  She hasn’t been a big egg fan, but she loves this and has eaten it for two weeks for breakfast.  She still eats great. Lots of meat (she tried shrimp this month and loved it), tons of fruits and veggies.

We’ve worked this month (actually it started right before I left for a work trip, and daddy did a great job being consistent while I was gone) that lovey is for bedtime and the car ONLY. No more carrying lovey around.  She tends to suck her thumb with lovey, so we are limiting it. We will remove it from the car this summer, likely.  In the mornings, she kisses lovey goodbye, waves bye and we don’t get lovey again until nighttime.

She still mostly only cares about Sesame Street, but she also will watch Zootopia.  She saw the police animals and says “DADA!”

She says Momma so much more- and I couldn’t love it more!

Remington, we love your little personality. We pray that we are molding you to be kind, loving and helping to grow your brain and body.  We love watching who God made you to be emerging!  You light up our worlds!  Here’s to the second half of your second year. We have many adventures planned for the summer!
