Wow... does Leah really turn 2 next month? My munchkin is developing her own little personality which is full of opinions, jokes, and wants. It's fun to see what aspects of her probably came from me or from Matt, and I can already sense the 2s are going to be very interesting. Here are some updates.
- She's always been a girly girl, but it's showing up more clearly in the past month. She tells us she wants to wear the pink shoes or the bow shoes, and she also loves to walk in mommy's Jimmy Choo shoes. Uh oh, sorry future husband. ;) She also walks around the house carrying her purse and wearing her bracelets.
- We really have to be careful about what we say around her and be aware of conversations around us when we're in public. She will hear a word or phrase once and immediately start repeating it. Needless to say, there may be a phrase or word we hope doesn't stick. At the same time, she continues to pick up new words constantly and can say 5-7 word sentences often. Some of her baby words have also changed, like Whoa-Whoa is now Doggie and Ah-Ah is now Monkey. She's can also now almost fully sing the ABCs and Twinkle Twinkle.
- I've also noticed how improved her coordination is. She can walk up and down stairs and climb up steps for the slide all on her own. Her running really looks like running now, and luckily, I'm still faster than her!
Leah: I can't believe my next monthly update post will be celebrating your 2nd birthday. You are loving, affectionate, sweet, and also stubborn, spunky, and mischievous. I love how you cuddle up next to me when you watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and how you tilt your head and put your face right in my face and say "Hi, Mommy!" We are constantly amazed at the new words you say and funny things you do. Mommy and Daddy often ask each other "Did you teach her that?" Happy 23 Months, baby girl! I love you so much!! xoxo Mommy
