so this month you gained 2 new teeth-those back molars came through and oh my that was not fun. you were a grumpy old lady for a few weeks. but now you have a little bit more to help you chew through all that food you eat. you are an eater. you will eat almost anything. but pizza is your favorite (you are my daughter after all!) you also love asparagus. you will chug my green drink no matter how much ginger is in there. its amazing. but applesauce is your obsession. you rummage through the snack drawer and bring me pouches ALL DAY LONG. when i say no you just go grab a different pouch. if i say no to that you take it to lulu. lulu recently said, ‘mommy, harriet has lost her craw.’ and its true-that fantastic little crab crawl is a thing of the past. you walk and run now.
nope nope can’t believe it-a year and a half!!!
this past month was a doozy with the two bottom molars coming through. they took their time and it hurt in the process! naps have continued to be a 30 minute affair. just enough time for me to make a sandwich and sit down. i start to take a bite and….’WAAAH.’ the words are really starting to come. and finally we have some animal sounds (sheep, dog, cow, horse.) around 2 weeks ago you decided to become a full fledged toddler. that means you now run away from me anytime you are near something dangerous. its terrifying. getting my cardio in at all times. i thought you would be the one who sat by feet and quietly read. but nope. you are going to be as wild as your sister. you think it is HILARIOUS when i chase after you! the all done sign is being abused at this point. diaper change…all done. dinner time…all done. i put you in the car seat…all done. all done. you love your blankets and animals. you call them all MA. that started when you would reach for your pink blanket and were trying to say ‘more’. its funny b/c you want any blanket or stuffed animal you see and will scream ‘maaa.’ harriet, you are so funny! at your 17 month check up you were 19 pounds. you are definitely tinier then most of the babies your age. you love books. your will bring me 100 books a day and say ‘bo bo’. current favorite is ‘good night moon’ b/c you can find the mouse on every page. you love to draw. i am not sure if that is from observing lulu or if maybe i have another little artist. but you really love drawing-even on our furniture (sigh.) you continue to love for daddy to wear you in the biorn. even though you are clearly getting too big. but you will drag it over to him and beg to be worn. you had your last day of school last week-ms jeannie and ms margie were your teachers on monday. you always seemed pretty happy about going to school. the ymca and church childcare have never made you happy-until a month or so ago we discovered that you love the swing. as in the infant swing!:) it doesnt even have to swing. you will literally sit there for 2 hours. during bible study on wednesdays you are the only girl in the nursery. they tell me you sit in the swing and point to the boys to come bring you anything that falls. and they do! if your blanket falls off you point and one of the boys comes running to retrieve it! you seriously are the cutest. your eyes, that strong little personality. i just love you so much.
