16 Months!

We've had a really fun month that's been full of activities. From the splash pad to play dates to visiting her grandparents in St. Louis to a trip to Chicago, it's been busy! At 16 months, LE
  • Comes running, grinning, arms flailing, cup in hand at the prospect of dried cranberries. 
  • Says "Uh oh!" (yes! first real word... finally!) whenever she drops something by accident or on purpose. Her second word, if you want to call it that, is "Bahh!" which means "Bam!" (as in the loud noise something makes when it's banged against something else.).
  • Knows "high five" and where her eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, ears, hand, feet, and bellybutton are. 
  • Loves to play hide and seek, especially with her dad. Throughout the day, she'll go sit behind the curtain, waiting for someone to notice. If we don't immediately notice, she'll send out a quick shriek and then go silent. 

  • Giggles and shrieks as she's being chased or is chasing.
  • Understands a lot. If I ask her "Where's your sippy cup?" she'll squat down and look under furniture or around the house until she finds it. 
  • Plays with chalk and crayons by writing with them and placing them in and out of buckets. 
  • Runs straight to her trike when we go outside, climbs up onto it, and tries to buckle her seatbelt.
  • Waves hello and goodbye to everyone, including photos and her reflection.
  • Climbs in and out of the laundry basket and other baskets.
  • Rearranges our furniture.
  • Asks us to read to her by bringing us books.
  • Loves her babydoll LeLe and elephant chair, Felix.
  • Kisses, hugs, and cuddles a lot.
  • Still loves ice and eating with a fork.
  • Smacks her lips loudly when she wants to eat or drink something.
  • Picks and eats the grape tomatoes straight from the garden.
  • Has 11 teeth, still sleeps about 12 hrs/night, takes 2 naps a day unless we're out during the morning nap time.
