17 months!

My little bear turns 17 months today. That's one month away from the big 18. Where is the time going?


She is fascinated with clothes and shoes. It started a few months ago, but it has really picked up steam recently. She wants to pick out her shoes, and often will pick out different shoes for each feet (so like, one pink shoe and one brown shoe). And then she will get furious if I try to put matching shoes on her.


What can I say? She is attached to her shoes.


She will even carry the shoe basket around the house just to be close to her shoes. Nevermind that the shoe basket weighs as much as she does.


She loves books. Loves being read to, and looking through books on her own. She squeals with delight at the sight of a new book and wants to look through it over and over again.


Her vocab is picking up quite a bit. She says maybe 50 or 60 words. Words like soft, juice, cheese, shoes, socks, shirt, star, no, help, etc. Her favorite sentence is still: I want that. She's got that one down. Ha!


Her favorite foods are strawberries, cheese, and bread with mayo. She used to like avocados but now is on strike with them. I just got her to start drinking whole milk (organic), but she still likes nursing best of all.

She wears size 18-24 months, and has for awhile now. We are probably going to go up to size 2T soon. I like clothes to be roomy and comfy! She's in a size 3 diaper.


She calls kitty cats "Meows" and dogs are "Woofs." I am dada and Mr. Mustard is mama sometimes. Sometimes she calls me mama and sometimes dada. I can't figure it out. I don't think she knows the difference between a mama and a dada. Ha!


She loves her big sister and idolizes her like nobody's business. Whatever Paprika is doing, that is the thing to do. Paprika is really gentle with her, really proud of her, and makes my heart swell with how great a big sis she is.

So, there ya have it. The 17 month update! I feel like yesterday I was 17 weeks pregnant with her...and probably tomorrow she will be 17 years old. Not so fast my little bear! Sigh!

Erika, your kids are so completely adorable. I have to say your blog is one of my favorites. Sometimes I wish you would adopt me! You are a wonderful Mother...spending so much time and energy attending to them. It's truly wonderful how well they get along and I believe that is a testament to your loving ways...
