My Little A is 16 months old today. It's been a while since I have had the chance to sit back and reflect on her growth and development. She has made leaps and bounds since I last updated at 11 months!
Little A, you have been doing your job to the fullest. You have been keeping Mommy on her toes like none other, getting into EVERYTHING! Your favorite no-no's are the Christmas Tree, the chest of drawers, and our ice chest/liquor cabinet... a big, giant No-No!
You are saying several words now- "Mommy", "Daddy", "Dog", "Nice", sister's name, "Bath", "No", "Yes", "Baby", "Ball", "Tree", "See", "This"... I could probably go on and on. You are signing "more" and "all done". You can point to your nose, eyes, mouth, hair, "piggies" and "bebo".
You ♥ to dance! Your music cube is your favorite.toy.EVER! You love to roll it around and dance to the music. Your other favorite activity is to stand on the front room rug and wait for Mommy to turn the I-Pod on so you can dance, twirl, and clap.
You are such a great eater. You will try just about anything, and there are very few foods that you do not like. You have slowed down on the amount of bananas you eat, though. At one point, you were eating 2-3 bananas per day! You love yogurt, applesauce, grilled cheese, toast, spaghetti, chicken, and green beans! Yeah, Little A!!
You also love to play "kitchen". As soon as we enter the basement, you run right over to find a spoon and cup, or a plate. You stir, pretend to eat, and pretend to feed Mommy and Daddy.
You love to climb. You have no fear! You like to climb on chairs, couches, stairs... anything you can get to. You are rough and tumble, and Mommy and Daddy do our best to prevent you from bumping your head, but it happens quite often, truth be told.
You've even begun to throw fits on the floor. When you get mad, you will purposely fall down or fling yourself backwards and cry. You are doing this several months earlier than your sister did!
You love to cuddle. Sometimes, you like to sleep on Daddy. You still suck on your two middle fingers for comfort. You love to snuggle up with your striped blanket and your bunny or your Nala.
You like to play with Sassy's pretties. You love to wear dress-up jewelry, crowns, and shoes. You even steal Mommy's clothes out of the laundry to wear sometimes!
You are a sweet, sweet girl with a lot of spunk and a lot of personality. We can't wait to see you grow and learn new things, sweetie!
