LE at 17 Months

LE is already 17 months and a week old. She's still much the same as she was at 16 months (imagine that!). Here are the new things.
  • Prefers to sit on her own chair, preferably the one that she got to climb onto by herself. 
  • Slides down slides by herself though she sometimes desires to have someone go with her to hold her hand.
  • Continues to enjoy putting rocks and items into containers, moving them to different containers, and then putting them back.
  • Brings us books to read her at any lull in the day.
  • Loves, loves the song in this Target commercial. Every time she hears it, she stops, looks over to find me, and gives a "is this really happening?!" look just before simultaneously smiling and bouncing.
  • Gets her bib from her drawer when she's ready to eat.
  • Says her version of "moo" and "woof woof" when asked what a cow or dog says (sometimes)
  • Sidesteps or walks backwards when she's near our cat so that she can keep her eye on the cat at all times
  • Likes "helping"-- unloading the dishwasher, throwing things away, pushing elevator/garage buttons, closing the baby gates, and wiping things down with a napkin.
  • Holds her hurt body part out to us to kiss. If both of us are around, we both have to kiss it followed by her kissing it.
  • Speaks in a new form of jibber jabber. 
  • Spins in circles until she is giddy and falls down.
  • Looks up and waves bye bye when we put her in her crib at night, as if to say, "Ok Mom and Dad, you can leave now."
  • Gets her diaper changing supplies laid out and ready when she, um, goes.
  • Is healthy and tracking as she should on growth charts. She's 21.5 lbs and 30.5 in. She has 13 teeth. That #13 was a real pain for all involved. She sleeps 12 hrs a night and is transitioning to one 2 hour afternoon nap a day.
