Avery - 21 month milestones

(This is a month late. I thought I had posted it, but I didn't. Doing a little catch up blogging today!)

21 Month Milestones - 2/4/12

Height - 30.25"+

Weight - 21 lbs+

Sleeping - You usually go to bed around 7:30 or 8. You sleep til 9:30 or 10 and still take a 1.5 to 2 hr nap in the afternoon. You still sleep all night without waking so we are very blessed in this area.

Eating - Breakfast is usually eggs with cheese and fruit, oatmeal with frozen blueberries, or a waffle with yogurt and fruit. You can finish off 2 scrambled eggs with no problem. Depending on when you get up, sometimes you have a mid-Morning snack of cheerios, fruit, or crackers. Lunch is either left overs, chicken nuggets (5), or our muffin tin lunch. After nap time, you have a snack (again) and usually munch on something until dinner. For dinner you mostly eat what we have but occasionally you won't touch it. I found out you love carrot sticks and sliced cucumbers. Really you will eat pretty much any veggie if we give you ranch to dip it in. You call it "honey" and we aren't sure why. You also now have 16 teeth, 8 on top and 8 on bottom.

New discoveries - You have been talking a lot more this month, or it seems that way. You talk in your own form of sentences. Usually we can only understand two or three of the words but they make perfect sense to you. I wish I could just remember all the words you know and write them down.

Not really a discovery but for the record this past month has been really warm. We have spent several afternoons outside with our ball and chalk soaking up the sun. Crazy when you think about a year ago when we were iced in. For a week!

New accomplishments - you learned your first song and "sing" it with mommy. Mommy will sing "if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands/say amen" and you respond with a little high pitch "amen" every time. Cutest thing ever!

You started to love to dance. The songs on Tangled (which you request multiple times a day) always get a little dance out of you. You especially like it when Mommy or Daddy dance with you. You like to "rock out" to Thousand Foot Crutch in Daddy's truck too.

Places you went - Not many. We were pretty much quarantined to our house since Claire was so little.

Special Memories - Seeing you learn to love your baby sister. Watching you become more of a toddler and less of a baby.  Watching you and Daddy during bathtime - that has become your special time with Daddy.

Punkin-doodle - you are growing up so much. I think I'm noticing it more since sister is so little. :) I love to see you learn and explore and grow, but wow! It truly does go by so fast. Thank you for being patient with Mommy as my attention has been divided between you and Claire. You are wonderful at playing by yourself while Mommy cares for Claire. I do love our special lunches/playtimes while Claire is asleep. It makes my love for you both grow so much.

~Mommy & Daddy
