20 Months! I can’t believe it!
Oh my, how we have grown. I’m sorry for these out of focus pics. I give her- her little animal to hold and she flings that thing around like…well…a pizza. So I had to cut him out of some of these shots.
What’s the update? Well at 20 months old she basically does everything that she’s always done just louder and with more attitude. She is vocal- speaking in short sentences. She is much more active then she ever has been before, and adventurous too! Climbing rocks at the park, following around the big kids, and asking me every single day to “go outside, let’s go park!”
My favorite feature? I LOVE her hair! Do you see how her mullet is growing out a bit? The sides are
finally growing in. She has these giant loopy curls that dance around her hair and make her look like a tiny Richard Simmons. It’s awesome! At 20 months old she gets scarred of things pretty easily, like lions and bears that she sees on her flashcards. She’ll run into my arms and hold my hand and say “Mama, oh no!” I always tell her that I will ever let any of those terrible animals take my baby and then she repeats “No take baby!”
She’s all girl. She wears my bracelets around the house and has her hand in my make-up bag at all times applying blush and eye make-up. I would stop her, but y’all know that I have always wanted her to be a pageant princess- we’re comin’ for you Eden Wood!
In a few short months ill have to do the post I’ve only dreamed about. The 24 month post- were we look back at her progress from month 1 to year 2. I am starting to
slightly freak out at the idea of my baby being 2 years old. She hardly acts like a baby anymore- which is why I now walk her to the grocery store wearing her on my back in her Ergo carrier. I hear that sweet baby voice in my ear and she’s suddenly small again. We won’t make it much longer in the Ergo carrier but hopefully when it’s time to let go I’ll be ready and she will be too.
