20 Months..

Caroline turned 20 months old last week and, in keeping with my blogging slacker position, I didn't post about it. It feels weird saying her age in months now..how are we so close to 2!?

I love this age! I know I've said that at every age since she was born. Haha. I just love watching her learn new things and grow. Honestly, being a parent has been so much better than I thought it was going to be. I know that sounds bad. I've just never really been a kid person. I wasn't the adult that would crawl on the floor with the kids and entertain them..I figured I just wasn't born with that skill. That changed when Miss Caroline was born. The second I saw her, everything clicked and I knew I was supposed to be a parent. It's amazing. I'm so lucky..yet so terrified of her getting older. I wish she could just stay young and innocent forever.

Anyway. Enough with all the mushy stuff!

We had some issues around Thanksgiving with major temper tantrums and we thought that was the start of the "terrible 2s"..luckily it only lasted a few days and she's been back to normal since then. I think she's already working on her 2 year molars and they are driving her crazy off and on.

She has become quite the chatterbug lately! I'm going to just delete her list of words because I can't even count everything that she says now. She will pretty much repeat (or try to at least) anything she hears.She says words that I didn't even know she's heard before..like she has started pointing out the moon and stars every morning when we leave for daycare. I don't remember ever talking to her about the moon.

Her daycare director is talking about moving her up to the 2 year old room a little early because she's ready..and is socially on track with the kids in that room. I think it's a great idea because she's the oldest in her current room and she's the only girl.

We went to the pedi yesterday and she was 29 lbs. She's in 24 month and 2T clothes and 6-6.5 in shoes.

I can't access Shutterfly at work anymore so I'll have to post more pictures later.
