My 21 month old!

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe it is already August and in less than 3 months we will have a 2 year old! Wow!


This past month you have grown so much it is crazy. You went from saying a few words clearly to making sentences. You are now saying "poopy" before you poop, after you poop and just in general when you want your diaper changed, but I am so proud, because that is progress towards potty training my dear. You are swimming under water now, whoot whoot, that's my girl! You are playing so well with children at the park. You are an AMAZING big sister to your baby brother and we are so impressed with how you have handled the transition.

At the end of the month you start school! Just 1 day a week, but mommy is excited to see you grow there. We started bringing you to the gym day care to see how you handle us leaving you- it has been a progression from screaming for 10 minutes straight to really enjoying it. We are so proud! Next month you start ballet class and mommy is especially excited about that.

You are super smart, you know almost all of your body parts, point and say them. You know your colors, some of your shapes and so many animals and the sounds they make.

Yes, you have your toddler tantrums, but overall you are such a good little girl. You still sleep like a dream! You have now transitioned to pretty much 1 nap a day, which is fine with us, we are just glad you are still taking one and sleeping at night. You love, love, love chasing around the dogs. Oreo on the other hand is not enjoying this as much as you.

Some of your favorite things to say right now are,

"What's that/Who's that??"
"Here you go"
"Thank you"
"ice cream"
"Mommy, Daddy, Gianna, baby"
"night night"

You fill our lives with love, fun, excitement, fear (we always worry about you), hope, and faith. You are the most beautiful little girl in the world and we are so fortunate to call ourselves your parents. I cannot believe in 1/4 of a year you will be 2 years old. I am savoring all these amazing moments watching you grow!
