16 months

Happy 16 month birthday to our Emma Grace! I could go on and on about how perfect she is, but we can just say... she's perfect. ;)

After just weighing her, she comes in at 23 lbs. EG has her 8 front teeth and 3 molars. She's wearing 18-24 month clothing for the most part... I still have her in some of her 12 month pants. She's still in size 3 diapers, although at night she's in a 4.

Language: oden (open), nanny (banana), mou (mouth), go go go, beyee (belly), tee (teeth), up high (high 5), peas (please), meme (mermaid), ssssss (kiss), bass (bath), boon (balloon), bubble, bar (cereal bar), duice (juice), ffffff (frog), hot, Anin (Aaron), mahble (marble), buh-ball (football), up, Deese (Reese). Grand total of 53 words! She can also identify her eyes, mouth, teeth, and belly. She likes to bark like a dog and meow like a cat, but she hasn't really picked up on any other animal sounds yet.

She loves: following Reese, playing with Reese's toys, making a mess, snacking, climbing (she's recently mastered getting on and off the couch on her own and coming down the stairs on her butt), dancing, being with Mommy... and only Mommy, playing outside, strawberries, bananas, oranges, tortellini, chicken noodle soup, carrots, macaroni and cheese, playing with the Electrolux hand held, playing with playdoh, playing dress up, shoes, her refrigerator toys, closing the dishwasher, and her fabric squares.

She hates: getting dressed, having her diaper changed, when I wipe her nose, "no", when things are taken away from her, peas, green beans, when I rinse her hair in the bath, and sitting still to get her hair done.

New tasks: I think it might be time to introduce her to the potty. While we are definitely not going to take potty training seriously right now, she's showing definite signs of being ready soon. She comes up to me and says "poo poo", hides, and then comes back and tells me "poo poo" again. Hopefully it will go smoother with EG with big sister Reese modeling. :)
