21 Months!

Leah is 21 months today! How is it that she will be 2 in 3 months? So crazy! This month has been all about more independence. Uh what? You're not 18 yet little one. She wants to go up and down the stairs by herself, plays by herself for longer periods of time, and refuses to let us help her eat. She will definitely voice her opinion when she doesn't want you hovering over her! Here are some Leah updates: 

  • Sings "Put away! Put away!" when she's cleaning up her toys
  • Constantly asking "What's that?"
  • When we pray, she'll clasp her hands together really tight, close her eyes {sometimes}, and sit very still until the prayer is over. She finishes with a loud "Amen!"
  • Got bit for the first time on Monday at day care. :( It was so sad to see that little mark on her arm. She's been a little wary of kids getting close to her this week. Hopefully, that doesn't last too long!
  • She's becoming an amazing eater! Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself by saying that, but the last few weeks, she's been eating anything we put in front of her including veggies! Eating out has also been a lot more enjoyable. We have to wait for her to finish her meal!
  • Told me her Lego man had to poop, put him in her potty, then proceeded to try to put a diaper on him afterwards
  • Can spend a whole hour at the playground just going up and down the slide
  • Spent her first weekend away from mommy, and we both survived!

Leah: My little lady, everyday I look forward to seeing what new things you will say or do. You constantly sing little songs to yourself including hand motions. When we're in the car, and I quickly glance behind me, I can't help by crack up when I see you waving your arms all over the place. You are a full-fledged daddy's girl after your weekend together when mommy was away. It melts my heart to see you jump into daddy's arms and cuddle with him when he comes home from work. One of your favorite activities is eating a popsicle after dinner with daddy. I spy on you guys as you sit in your chairs, lean back, and cheers with each other. I'm so proud of the little girl you are becoming. You can be stubborn and opinionated, but you have so much love and kindness for those you're comfortable with. I can't wait to see what the next month brings! Happy 21 months! xoxo


  1. Our girls are just one day apart! Such a wonderful age and full of so much wonder about the world!

  2. She really is a sweet girl and that is because she has the sweetest parents. She always melts my heart! Time to start planning that 2nd Birthday!

  3. Such a sweet little entry! I can't wait to finally meet her and watch her and Olive race each other to the slide. ;-) Olive also does the loud "ahhhh-men" at the end of our prayers. Melts me!

  4. Soo sweet!! Leah and Everly are only one day apart! Everly was born 11/22! That Lego man story is so funny! Kids do the cutest things! I LOVE this phase.
