Pretty much the same as last month except for just a growing vocabulary. Still in that phase where only mom knows what she's saying (like cereal), but she's talking up a storm. She also knows all her characters, this is all thanks to a TV loving older sister. Of course "Me" for Mickey and the happiest giggle when she sees him on screen or stuffed on the floor. "Duck" for Donald and Daisy, "Doc" for Doc McStuffins, "Mo" for Elmo, "Ah Ah" for Curious George, etc. She'll repeat words I'll teach her, like we were sorting Easter eggs by color and I would hold up blue and she'd repeat "boo", yellow "el-lo", or pink "ink". She also sings, she's been singing Let it Go for a while, but now she'll sing head, shoulders, knees, and toes... but only saying and touching head and toes, but she does have eyes, ears, mouth and nose down. She'll also hum along when Ashlynn sings the ABCs.
It all. I think the biggest accomplishment was learning to go down the stairs. I had kept the stairs blocked off with a large flattened cardboard box that we could slide in and out to get up (well, we could step over it, but for Ashlynn) She finally was breaking through it so I taught her to go down on her butt and probably took two-three days tops and now she's a complete pro.
Just like Ashlynn was, she's still transitioning into one nap. She's really down to one, aside for the days she wakes around 5:30am or the days Ashlynn has school. She'd probably nap from 11:30-1 daily but since twice a week we pick up Ashlynn up around noon, I try to get her down earlier, sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Favorites include yogurt "gurt", blueberries, bananas, peanut butter sandwiches, and cheddar bunnies.
While of course between a 3 year old and 16 month old, there is plenty of crying, whining, and tantrums over nothing during my day. However, the girls are really becoming playmates and friends. They love being with each other and Kenley even runs in to Ashlynn's classroom and hugs her at pick up (then usually scams the other kids lunch). I love this age, but I can't wait until she's closer to two and really playing with her sister.
