Another two months have flown by, so it's time to do a little update on Amelia. Crazy that we are getting closer and closer to her being two years ago. Wasn't she just born?!
When I did her eighteen month update post, Amelia had just started walking. Now, she barely sits still! Always running around the house, crawling up the stairs, crawling all over the couch, etc. It's fun when we are at home, but so much work when we are in public!
Her favourite things lately include:
- playing at the park
- throwing rocks in the river
- water in any form- especially loves when you start the bath water and let her sit running her hands under the tap while the tub fills up
- carrying books everywhere including taking one every morning to the dayhome
- going down the slide or trying to climb up it
We haven't had a doctor's appointment since she was 18 months, but I did stick her on our home scale and she's at least 25lbs. I swear she went through a growth spurt recently as her pants are all getting shorter. Her belly is still huge, which makes me laugh. Because of that, I have to buy her shirts in 2T. Her little legs are short though as she wears 18month pants. She's still wearing size 4 diapers.
Her favourite foods are: yogurt, cheese, pasta, grapes, bananas, muffins, bear paw cookies, rice. Still absolutely loves her bottles of milk, but does take it in a sippy cup during the day at the day home.
She still chatters non-stop in her own little language with a few words thrown in there. She says: dadda (non-stop), baby, no, cookie (no idea how she knows that one!), all gone, more. I laugh when she goes into our pantry and says "cookie?" and points to the bear paws. Smart girl ;)
We FINALLY got her to let us brush her teeth. Just took some toddler tooth paste and now she loves it. She gets so excited when we do it after bath time.
What else? Amelia is definitely a very strong and opinionated toddler. She knows what she wants and doesn't want and isn't afraid to let you know. If you wait just a bit too long to do bedtime routine, she is not a happy girl! She loves her sleep like her momma.
We love you Amelia!
