Amelia is learning so much and catching on to things so quickly! She knows that if someone is sleeping (ie: when I pretend to sleep on the couch), she puts her finger to her lips and go shhh. She does that with her baby when she puts it to sleep too. I love it! She also loves coloring now and gets so excited if you draw something for her and then she colors it in. Another favourite thing of hers lately is bears. She will point them out in books, on tv, etc.
We've had a few rough mornings that included her screaming when we leave for the day home in the morning. We haven't figured out why, as she's happy when we drop her off and happy when we pick her up. She's also had a major rash and now a cold, so lots of sickness for our sweet girl lately.
Another struggle we are having lately is her not wanting to eat any dinner. Sometimes it's not worth the battle and we know she will eat something if she gets hungry. When she does eat, she loves: grapes, cheese, pasta, yogurt, raisins, bananas. One day we'll get some variety in there ;)
She celebrated her second Halloween and dressed as a monkey, but was unfortunately sick, so didn't get to go trick or treating. Next year :) She isn't the biggest fan of being in the stroller for long periods of time when I'm walking Harley now, so our walks are just a wee bit slower now with her walking. She loves picking up rocks along the way and then throwing them out of the stroller later.
When we took her to the doctor earlier in November, she weighed 26 pounds (she's a solid girl, haha). Wearing 2T shirts and 18-24 month pants. In size 4 diapers and probably will be for a bit still.
We love you Amelia!
