This fall has flown by just as I thought it would, and now we are only a month away from Bella’s second birthday!
The two biggest developments this month have been the continued growth of her language skills and her complete turn into a daddy’s girl! Whenever Lance is around he is who she prefers. Good for me, that especially includes diaper changes!
English words: treat (usually stated as a phrase…Titan treat), mine, teeth, yogurt, apple, red (reh), blue (boo), hello (heyo), cracker, clean, house, keys. miss (as in Ms Gloria, her teacher)
Spanish words: sucio (dirty), ashay (leche…milk)
There are probably more as well that we forgot to write down. It feels like we are at the word a day phase!
Bella is also obsessed with babies right now, which is probably a good thing! We went to the local children’s museum and she spent 30 minutes changing the diapers of six babies that were for some reason stationed with the ambulance.
For the most part, she is a happy, independent little girl. We’re starting to have a few more tantrums, and she loves to say “no” to us (but seems to say it much less to others). But there is still that sweetness and she loves ending each night with a family hug and kisses.
We are definitely in the full force of toddlerhood now. Joyous one minute. Screaming her face of the next (in this case because a toe nail clipper may have gotten near her toes…we’ve yet to be successful in actually trimming them).
