20 months old, wow. Katie is talking a ton lately. She is repeating everything we say. She has discovered Elmo too. I got her this DVD she can watch in the truck. Everytime we get in she start saying Elmo Elmo, before I even have her straped in. Last week she played in a mud hole at the park. She had a blast and had to ride home in just her diaper. I can't believe how fast she is growing. Her hair is getting longer too. She has been loving to take a bath lately. Its hard to believe that she is 20 months old.
21 months old. I can not believe I am going to have a 2 year old soon. Katie has been talking tons lately and can repeat everything we say. She has also turned into a climber. She is getting into everything. We have been playing in lots of water lately since it has been so hot. We have been having lots of playdates with all of our friends too.
We just got back from the beach a few days ago. It was so sweet to see Katie play in the sand and the ocean. She loved finding seashells too. I just can not get over how big she is becoming. They also moved her to the preschool room at the YMCA form the toddler room. Normally they don't move them until they are 2 but the teachers thought that she was ready. Kind of makes me sad to see her grow up so fast.
So we have be introducing the potty to Katie for a few weeks now. She will just sit on it every now and again. The last few days she has been sitting on it for a few minutes at a time but no luck in going so far. She has also been pulling off her diaper in the mornings and today at nap time she was whining a bit so I go in to see what the problem was and she had pulled off her diaper and pooped and peed in the crib. Luckly she was not playing with it. Just a pile of poop sitting there. I am not sure how to get her to keep her diaper on.
I still can not believe how much she is talking now. She can repeat almost every word you say to her. She is growing so much taller too. Tall and slender.
I was just reading through this journal and I can not believe the transformation that happens before your eyes when you have a baby. The fact that Katie can almost run and climbs on everything, and she loves to color is just so wonderful. She can communicate her needs and wants to us for the most part. I just love when she gives me hugs and kisses. She can say so many words and can repeat anything you ask her too. She can point out every body part and loves her baby dolls. She has just become this wonderful little human and I feel blessed that I get to watch her grow and learn. She has been playing outside with her sand box and sidewalk chalk. She loves Spongebob. I have been starting to plan her birthday party. We are going to have an Elmo theme. I made some invitations and they turned out great. I hope she knows how much we love her.
Katie got the left bottom eye tooth on Thursday then the right one came on Saturday. She is talking in sentences more and more, linking the words together so well. I can not believe that in 2 weeks she will be 2 years old. She is so big.
Katie got her top right eye tooth 3 days ago. I can't believe all those teeth are coming all at once. We are planning a birthday party for Sunday. I am still in shock that my little baby is going to be 2. We are having a cook out and I am making Elmo cupcakes too.
2 years old today. Where o where did my little baby go? Katie got yet another tooth today, her top left eye tooth. We should be done for a while with teeth, her 2 year molars should be the next to come in. I still can not believe that Katie is 2 years old, I don't feel as sad about it as I was last year. She is just so grown and smart. Talking in sentences and follows directions. She is also such a big helper. She likes to water my plants outside, she helps to pick up her toys. She loves to brush her own teeth too. I am just amazed at all the things she can do on her own. She has grown up so much in the last few months, becoming so much more independent. I am very excited about her party tomorrow, it should be fun. I just want Katie to know how much I love her and I want nothing but the best for her in her life.
We had Katie's birthday party last Sunday, it was a big hit. We just had a cook out with the family, Katie had a fun time. She actually blew out her candles on the cake, I was so proud. I made Elmo cupcakes too, they turned out really cute. She got a bunch of new toys and clothes. She is one lucky girl.
