17 Months

My sweet precocious, independent, loving girl,

I love watching you grow! Your vocabulary has grown by leaps and bounds and I'm pretty certain I'm not the only one who can understand what you're saying a lot of the time; you speak pretty clearly.You also like to parrot what we say - so, you might not understand what some of the words mean, but you'll definitely repeat us. :)

At 17 months you like:
playing outside
climbing on all the furniture
giving kisses
giving hugs (which is a gentle lean in of your head)
eating fruit (oranges, bananas, apples, etc.)
our dogs
playing with Daddy (you're pretty certain he hung the moon)
playing independently
needing mommy love
bath time - blowing bubbles in the water

mashed potatoes (say what!? I know, this is weird)
pumpkin pie (we learned this at Thanksgiving)
getting out of the bath
having to do anything you don't want to do when you're tired
being told not to touch things

You had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Lots of family and friends and you were a trooper through everything! (We had a lot of naps that had to be tweaked) But, you rocked every minute of it!
