sixteen months

  • you weigh 20 lbs.
  • you are 30.25 inches long.
  • you wear a size 3 diaper.  i started using cloth diapers with you, and you think they are funny.  you look down at them like, "what is this?!"
  • you wear size a size 3 shoe, but you moved up to a 4 in keds.
  • you wear size 12-18 months in clothes.  you will be wearing a lot of dresses, or custom made clothes, this spring and summer.  if it fits you in length, it is way too big in the waist, and falls down.
  • you said your first word that we know of on jan. 7th.  you said "ni ni" for night night, and even put it together with "da da."
  • you are getting so good at helping me pick up and put away your toys.  even your toys in the bathtub... when you're ready to get out, you put them all in the bag hanging in the corner.
  • you looooove eating fruit.  all kinds... oranges, apples, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, strawberries, etc.
  • you have 4 teeth on top, and 3 on bottom.
  • you love to throw things in the trash.  we have to constantly check it to make sure you aren't throwing things away that you shouldn't.  you threw away gammy's coasters, several perfectly good sweet potatoes, measuring cups... all kinds of stuff.
  • you usually eat a grilled cheese off of the kids menu when we go to restaurants.
  • you have learned to crawl up on the furniture, and turn yourself around to get down without falling.
  • you do so well at church in your class!  you haven't cried for me once.
  • you love playing with magnets on the refrigerator.  you got some princess magnets for christmas.
  • you love for me to give you wet clothes to put in the dryer.  usually i give you small things like socks, underwear, or washcloths.  you also like to put in the dryer sheet before we shut the door.
  • you are a big snacker.  you want to snack all through the day, but not eat big meals at meal times.  i can't blame you, because i used to be the same way.
  • your favorite toys right now are your teapot, magna doodle, and phones.
  • you are really starting to take an interest in elmo.
  • you take your socks, shoes, and sometimes your bow off in the car wherever we go.  even if we're only in there for 5 minutes.
  • you always want to drink your bathwater now.  you also love to just hold a cup under the running water, and watch it overflow.
  • you really love to help me unload the dishwasher.  i take out all of the knives, and you hand me the forks and spoons 1 by 1.

So hard to believe she is already 16 months. She is such an adorable little girl! I hope I have a girl one day so I can ask you where to shop for all of those cute little clothes :)
