Seventeen Months Old!

Dear Caroline,

You are seventeen months old!

You have been very busy this month!  We traveled to Pennsylvania for Aunt Brigette's baby shower, we have had several snow days.  You enjoyed celebrating Valentine's Day and Elizabeth's 4th birthday.  Your Ga Ga and Uncle Adam and Aunt Brigette came to visit.  We have gone out for frozen yogurt, jumped in a bouncy house, played at the gym, played with friends outside, read LOTS of books, and had your very first serious doctor's appointment.

You are 31 inches tall and weigh about 25 pounds.  You wear a size 4 diaper and a size 4 shoe.  You wear 2T pants and 18month-2T shirts.  You LOVE to eat and learned the word  'snack' this month, so you now ask for 'snack' about 90342 times a day.  You have eight teeth, but several are about to come through.

You love to read and I'm guessing we spend almost 2 hours a day reading (and re-reading) all of the books in the house.  You love to be with your sister and you follow her everywhere.  You eat almost everything that we eat, but you still love a gerber graduate squeezie for breakfast.  This month we have stopped cutting up your food into tiny pieces because you have enjoyed holding the regular portion and taking small bites.

You still HATE to ride in the car and scream/cry the entire car ride.  You love playing with the older kids and always want to do whatever they are doing.  You have added a few words to your vocabulary this month, you can say: Dada, Momma, Cat, Duck, Baba (cup) and Snack.  We heard you say sissy today but only one time.  You are really good at signing and always sign please, more, and all done.

At the beginning of February you were really sick and didn't eat or drink much for three days.  We took you to the doctor and they ended up giving you an IV (for dehydration).  You didn't like the IV at first, but eventually feel asleep while we waited for it to finish.

We love you so much baby girl and I cannot believe how fast you are growing and changing.  Here are some pictures from your adventures this month:
