I miss doing updates of my sweet girl. I thought I would be done at 12 months and I haven’t done any since but I really enjoy reading back through them so here we go starting it back up!
16 months have flown by in the blink of an eye. Everyone says it goes quick but you really don’t realize how fast until you’re living it then you look back.
Life with our little toddler is so much fun. We are having a blast though don’t get me wrong, lots of hard moments too because parenting isn’t easy! She is very strong willed and a wee bit stubborn so that makes things challenging. My girl knows what she wants and what she doesn’t and that’s all there is to it! Haha!
She will do some sign language and it’s the sweetest thing. She will sign for all done & more. She does the sign for more and says “more more”. It’s funny because she will sign for more when she wants anything like this morning when she saw my smoothie on the counter she started signing for more saying “more more more!” It is the cutest thing.
The other night I sang to her while rocking her to sleep and each time I finished a song, she would clap for me and towards the end before she fell asleep she had heavy eye lids and she blinked super slow and then clapped so lightly, it was so sweet.
Eating has been getting interesting. Things she used to like, she doesn’t any longer so I’ve been offering her all kinds of new things and I always offer her what we are eating. A lot of times she will eat food off my plate that she wouldn’t touch if it were on his plate, stinker! Her favorite foods are avocado, apple sauce, veggie straws, pancakes, peanut butter, and smoothies!
We are officially down to one nap a day! Daycare started to transition her and for a while she struggled with it but within the last couple weekends through trial and error we realized she was ready for just one nap. We put her down at 1pm and she will nap until 3-4pm.
Things she likes –
She is obsessed with going outside!
She loves watching Muppet babies & doc mcstuffins
Stealing ours phones and pretending to talk on them
Playing with her play kitchen and fake food
Looking at books and having mama and dada read her all the books – she’s obsessed!!
She has a big attachment to her lovie & when she’s ready to go night night, she grabs her lovie out of the crib and holds it to her head, it’s so sweet.
Dancing and when mama sings to her she jams out – it’s so fun!
She is majorly obsessed with my hair… its interesting lol!
We are so obsessed and so in love with this sweet sweet girl. She is a hoot and we are having so much fun! Not every moment is easy, don’t get me wrong but we are loving every minute!
