nineteen months

  • you weigh 21 lbs and 8 oz.
  • you are 33 inches long.
  • you are in a size 3 diaper.
  • you are in size 18 month clothes, for the most part.  your shorts for summer are 12 month, and you can still wear some 12 month matilda jane.
  • you are in a size 4 shoe, but in a few pair, i think we're about to move to a 5.  you whine and cry when i put them on, so i'm guessing they are too tight.
  • you are trying to say more and more words.  i have tried to get you to say "please" for so long that i never thought you would say it.  at least you try now.  :)  and you will say, "no ma'am."  daddy says i need to start teaching you "sir" but i haven't yet.  ha!
  • you are a climber!  you are starting to crawl up in the dining room chairs, up bookshelves, on top of toys, etc.  the other day we caught you standing right on top of the table.
  • you take a really good morning nap, if we are at home.  you haven't been wanting to take afternoon naps lately.  :(  you will lay in your bed and say, "maaaamaaaa!" or sing to yourself.  :)  or sometimes you will take a good morning nap, and no afternoon nap.  i wonder if you are moving to only 1 nap a day, which makes me a little sad.
  • your favorite toy right now is probably your baby dolls.  you like to get them to go night night, feed them a bottle,  etc.
  • you love to wear my shoes around the house.
  • you finally figured out how to sit on your zebra, and push along with your feet to go forward.  i think you are almost about to figure out how to make the jeep go.
  • you would go down the slide 946545737 times if i would let you!  you lean back when going down, so after going down so many times, you scrape your back all up, but you still don't want to stop.
  • you love to try to do everything yourself, especially putting shoes on your feet.
  • you don't go to bed at night as easy as you used to.  you usually cry when i first lay you down, but you quit within a minute or 2.  i hate it that you do that.  :(
  • you like to hide from me, and you think it's hilarious when i can see you.
  • you amaze me by letting me mess with your earrings.  you are so good when i need to take them out and clean your ears.
  • your favorite movie is still alice in wonderland, and your favorite t.v. show is blue's clues.
  • you're new words are: juice, charley (your friend at church), ducky, please, more, and bath.  you don't say them perfect, but you try.  for example, "charley" is "larley."  "please" is "leee." :)
  • you have learned to throw fits.  it is not fun, and it's a little embarrassing.
  • you can identify people in photos.  i can say "where's gammy?" and you will point to her photo.
  • you get so restless so fast.  in places like the grocery store, the mall, restaurants, etc.  you are B.U.S.Y. at all times.
  • your favorite snack is still cheerios.  you beg for them all day long.
