You are 23-months-old (and 4 days)! I absolutely, positively cannot believe that you will be two-years-old in less than a month!
23 months (and 4 days)
You are growing and changing so much everyday. Your vocabulary has exploded and you add new words to it everyday. You talk from the moment you wake up until after we put you to bed. You are very inquisitive, you love to explore, and ask lots of questions.
You are obsessed with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Elmo. You love to wear your Minnie/Mickey Mouse shirts and carry around any or all of your Mickey/Minnie/Elmo toys. You also have a Minnie Mouse watch that you wear all the time. You have started to enjoy coloring and really like to color in your Elmo or Mickey/Minne Mouse coloring books.
In this past month, you have done a lot of fun things. I had foot surgery on December 20th and you spent an entire 4 days playing with your Dad while I was recovering. We celebrated Christmas here at home, and then on December 26th Nana and Pap Pap came to visit and have a second Christmas. You helped Mommy and Dada cheer on their Alma Maters in their respective bowl games. Pitt and USC both won! We also took you to the Children's Museum and you played and played and played. You loved the Sesame Street room! Saturday (the 18th) we had dinner with some of your favorite people- Alan, Laura, Sam, and Alice.
You are wearing 2T or 24 month clothes, size 5 shoes, and a size 4 diaper. You are on the same food schedule, 3 meals plus an afternoon snack. You have gotten a little better about having a fluctuating meal time (12:30 instead of 12, for example).
Your favorite foods are cheese and peaches. Your favorite drink is milk.
You have seen and enjoyed the movies Nemo and Shrek. You also like watching Sesame Street and Mickey Mouse Club House on TV.
You like to think you are a big girl and you like to play with the big girls when you are at Mrs. Vicki's house. Whatever they are doing, you are right there behind them copying them all the way. I love your enthusiasm and the joy you show in playing with your friends.
My sweet girl, we are so proud of you. You love to play with your friends, your parents, or by yourself. You are loving and affectionate. You love to laugh and have a good time. You love to eat your favorite foods and are starting to try more new things. You are the most wonderful girl to be around and you have started singing when you play. You love music and you love to dance. You have started jumping and throwing, kicking, and rolling a ball. You love to play!
We love you so much!!! Here are some pictures of you from the past month:
