Mae this month has really expanded her vocabulary. Including her first phrase of "Hep me!" (Help me!) It started out as one word but I think she now recognizes that it is two words. I have since lost track of every new word she has but some of my favorites whether new or old are: Luv you, tick-all (tickle), Pix-uhl (Pixel), and Mommy!
New things for Mae in her 19th month: her first ice cream - which now she asks for regularly "creeeam... bowl... taebull(table)" It's cute and watching her eat the sticky mess was a lot of fun too!
She sings in church, loves to dance when there is music on, folds her hands to pray - and constantly say 'more' when any of it ends because she always wants more singing, dancing, and praying. I love it!
She LOVES her brother and wants to do everything he does. He makes her laugh and she is pretty good to not bother him TOO much. Mae loves to do school just as much as her brother and we sit at the dining room table with her in her high chair and do school all together. :)
Mae is still itty bitty in size but she's feeling heavier and I'm happy for that that she's growing! She LOOKS bigger and as of today (even though I'm woefully late on posting her 19 month blog!) She was 18lbs and 1oz! Hooray! She also has had seven weeks of totally healthy and I'm so thankful that we've avoided any summer colds!!
This past month has also been an experience with tantrums. Mae also has received a few more time outs this month. A time out for Mae is in the Pack-N-Play. Since she sleeps in her bed or our bed, the PnP is really only for TOs. She's nearly 2 now so the time out is 2 minutes. On one venture to the pnp she decided to strip all her clothes off in protest. Silly girl... a few days later she upped the atte and stripped off the diaper too and then fell asleep. lol. She was out cold and so I was able to put a new diaper on her before any accidents occurred but oh my! Never a dull moment!!!
I cannot believe that we're rapidly approaching her second birthday. With the holidays looming that milestone will arrive even more quickly! She's a joy and SO happy! She wakes up with her BIG EYES and just smiles as bright as the sun. She still loves her mama milk and to snuggle next to me all night. Can't wait to see what is next for her!
Mae recently has been able to recognize TWO of something and can hold up two finger - she often wants TWOOOOOO crackers. She can count two things.. although not ... 1, 2... just look at it and say TWO! Very happy with a giant smile. :)
Mae's teeth count of fully in teeth is 5, but she's got 3 more broken through and descending rapidly, one of those being a molar. The other molars are just about to break through and we're looking forward to that so that she can enjoy eating more variety in foods with better ease! Eating wise she does ok - still eats like a bird many meals but then at other times we're wondering where on earth she's putting it! Quite the adventure!!
