Rachel you are nineteen months old!
I'm sorry I missed writing your 18-month post. I was sick and then we were into Christmas so I just didn't get around to it. So some of these changes have happened in the past two months.
I don't know how much you weigh or how tall you are. You wear a size three diaper and 18 or 18-24 month clothes. It is just crazy to me how fast you are going through clothes. I am glad you are getting bigger but can you slow down just a little bit. Thank you.
We love you soooooo much Miss Rachel! You are a fun, independent, stubborn, happy little girl and you make all of our days so much brighter. Here you are at nineteen months and, last January, at seven months!
You still go to bed around 8 or 8:30 and you have a good afternoon nap. On Wednesday night you woke up in the middle of the night and came to our bed but that rarely happens anymore. You are too wriggly for one thing! You are drinking about 4-6 oz of milk a night. If we give you 8 oz you often wake up really wet, even with the night diapers. You cuddle Funny Bunny and Funky Monkey (your Channukah gift) and go to sleep listening to the Kindermusik CD. You have your owl pillow from Oma and Opa in your bed and sometimes it's hard to find you among everything!
You still eat two yogurts and Cheerios for breakfast. You are a pretty good eater most of the time and have really wanted to try eating with a spoon by yourself this month. That is a messy adventure! You started getting your own Cheerios out of the pantry, something Mommy isn't so happy with. You also stand at the fridge and yell and then when we open it, you take out your water on your own. You've learned the sign for "more" so you don't yell at the table as much, something both Mommy and Daddy are really happy with.
(I love this picture so much. It makes me laugh so hard.
It looks like you are doing a karate kick but you are
really just trying to get your foot on the table.)
