20 Months Old

20 Months Old

Oh my goodness. I blinked. Another month has come and gone.  It didn’t help that I’ve traveled a lot this last month, so it was a blur.

Still no measurements.  I should probably measure her at home for the next month update. She’s finishing the box of 4 diapers and will start wearing 5s soon.  She’s wearing 3.5 in shoes and mostly 18-24 clothing- a few 12m and a few 2T in the rotation.


She wore her first BIG GIRL PONYTAIL!  Her hair is so long.

She has 20 teeth now- all the canines have fully come in.  She does better some days with teeth brushing, but it’s typically a struggle.

TONS more words this month.  Hops are bunnies (thanks, Zootopia!).  Mess is a common word for us (especially after meals). She LOVES “outside” and knows all of the Sesame characters (Elmo, Abby, Big Bird, Cookie) by name, and she calls them out during the intro. She did say her first two word phrase “Eat momma” one morning!  Mostly it’s still one word, but she’s done two words a few times.

She has counted to two a couple of times.  She loves when we count in our books together.


She went pee pee in the potty on May 10.  We aren’t pushing the potty training thing, but she likes to sit on it and “go potty.”  Our timing was right one day and she went.  I think we will attempt potty training at the end of summer.


She’s Elmo/Sesame Street OBSESSED.  She likes to watch it, but she has also shown an affinity for Zootopia and Cars.  We are going to do Lion King sometime soon because she was REALLY interested in the preview on Cars.

Her favorite toys are balls, her water table, bubbles, and things that make noise. She loves to go outside and explore- play in the rocks, the grass, chase balls around the sidewalk. She loves to be outside. She also still LOVES to read.  She brings us books a lot.   img_3309

She took a big tumble at mom’s house and scraped her nose, but she handled it like a champ.


She moves around great- steps (sometimes with hands or the handrail). She LOVES to swim at mom’s. She can step in and out of the pool and loves to climb the ladder and jump into the pool from the diving board. She loves the toys in the pool, too.

As far as food goes, she’s still a GREAT eater.  Breakfast food isn’t totally her jam, but she eats great. She loves dipping things but makes a huge mess, so we don’t give her dips very much. ha!  She asks for berries on the regular. Girl LOVES blackberries and strawberries.  She loves to ask for “more” of the things she likes. “Bewwies” is a common word at the table because she loves to eat them. She will help me cook- sitting on the counter and handing me utensils. She’s a great helper.

She does great when I’m gone- staying with grandmas and playing with family. She slept great at their houses and was a good girl while momma was away.

This month we have a family trip to Branson and some summer fun planned. I’m excited about all of our adventures!

Remington, you bring us such joy! We can tell that parenting you will be a fantastic journey- you’re so independent and smart. Which are GREAT things. But guiding you is going to take some learning on all of our parts to learn how to best direct and teach you. You’re SUCH a good girl. So friendly, such a good listener, such a sweet little person.  We can’t wait to see how you continue to grow and learn and change.
