Twenty Three Months Old *June 13, 2013*

I know I say this every month, but I really cannot believe that Alli is 23 months old! This time next month, she will be a 2-YEAR-OLD! We are excited to celebrate with an Elmo birthday party at The Little Gym, and this month will be spent getting everything ready for the party (although The Little Gym will be doing most of the work).  She is growing up so much, and she is like a little kid and not a baby anymore. She talks so much, and it is so much fun to hear her and Lila have conversations with each other in their room from the monitor. I cannot believe this is the last of the monthly posts until Grant arrives!
Here's what you're up to this month:

*You weigh exactly 23.0 pounds  and are just under 32 inches tall. 

*You still have 15 teeth, and we are waiting on those last molars to start working their way through.

*You love saying "hi" and "bye bye" to anyone and everyone. 
*You still love Chevy and still call him "dog." You look for him each morning. When we ask you what a doggie says, you say "woof woof." You love this little pull-dog and call it "puppy."

*Your vocabulary has grown so much that I can't even keep track of all the words that you say.  I know this list leaves out so many, you are quite the little chatter box. Here are the words you say most often: NO, nope, duck, cow, tree, please, waffle, milk, dog, Lila, mama, dada, mommy, blanket, tubby, book, Mickey, Minnie, fish, banana 'nana', chip 'fip', animals, Nemo, hi, hello, shoes, wow, uh huh, yes, Ye-Ye and Mamu (for your grandmamas), edaddy, thanks, yeah, stinky, Chevy, phone, iPad, mouth, and outside.

*The phrases that you  say are  "That's mine," "no mine," "I need help," "milk please," "I'm hurt," "I'm sorry," "That's hot," "let's go," "what are we going to do," "I'm happy", "it's okay", "I'm okay", "It's raining."

*When you fall down or trip you always get back up and say, "I'm okay!". 

*You love to sing the endings of the phrases in "Jesus loves me." You also love to sing "You are my sunshine" with daddy before he puts you to bed. 
*You can repeat most one-syllable words that we ask you. 
*You still drink about four full cups of milk per day, sometimes more. You will steal Lila's too if it's closer than yours.

*You still love pretending to talk on the phone or to take pictures with a camera. You say "cheese." You also love to be in front of the camera much more now. 

*Still hooked on the pacis; we've gotten so bad about letting you have them all day this past month...sigh...we plan on taking it away NEXT MONTH!! (but don't hold me to it).  You named it "mouth" and are even more obsessed. If you have your blanket in your hands, you want your "mouth". 
*You are such a monkey and love to climb on everything.  We have to make sure the baby gates are turned to where you can't step on the latch and heave yourself over. 
*You are so proud of yourself that you can finally jump with two feet off the ground. You jump all over the place, especially in your crib.  You also love to jump on the little trampoline
*Taking one big nap per day from 2-4. You sleep for a max of 2 hours , but rarely ever longer than that.

*You usually wake up between 7 and 7:30.  You have started to play in your crib, which buys us a little bit of time, but it's a little different with Lila in the room with you now. You two will play together sometimes before wanting out of the room. 
 *Your eating habits are still so random. You will eat the baby food pouches sometimes, but you love anything in the form of a cracker or bread. You love sweets, waffles, apples, bananas, cheese, peanut butter sandwiches, and grapes. You eat Gerber pinwheel pasta meals and peas and carrots. You LOVE any kind of berries too!

*We finally moved you up to size 4 diapers, and it has helped you not soak through them at night. You are wearing 12-18 month clothes (some 24 month clothes, but that's more rare), and 18 month sleepers (the 12 month sleepers are finally too small for you!).
*You and your sister grow closer every day.  She loves holding your hand and giving you hugs. You love hugging her sometimes, but you really love it when she plays with you! You guys LOVE sharing a room with each other!!

*You still love to watch Yo Gabba Gabba on the iPad and will dance the whole time. The volume doesn't even have to be up, you just like to watch them dance. You have also really gotten into Sophia the First, Elmo, Barney, and Handy Manny
*You have gotten to be quite the little iPad pro. You love all of the Fisher Price apps as well as the other apps that are for toddlers. You also love the Disney Junior app and watch all of the shows. You definitely know how to work it better than most adults.  This month, you have become especially more obsessed with the iPad though. 
*You love to play in the baby pool in the backyard.  You aren't so comfortable in the big pool just yet and you have to make sure that we are holding onto you pretty tight when swimming in deeper water. 

*You started a new school this Summer at Acrosport. You cried the first few times that we dropped you off, but you were fine the last time.  I think that you will really love it.
