17 Months!

 Today Sissy your are 17 months old! I cannot believe you are almost a year and a half...seems crazy! Especially since you are the baby of the family. You are more and more toddler every day. I will be the first to admit, you are spoiled rotten. I don't know if it's because you are a girl, because you are the youngest or because you are the fourth one but I know, we let you get away with way too much! Most of the time you get along with your brothers, listen to mom and dad and stay out of trouble but every now and then, you get a little wild. You'll slap a sibling just to give him a kiss, you'll throw dry cereal all over the living room then look at me and go ''uh oh!" like you had no idea what you were doing. At 17 months old you...

  • finally weigh 20lbs! I weighed you on our home scale so it's not 100% accurate but good to know that you are growing. {at your 15mos check up, you weren't even on the charts for weight...skinny mini!}
  • still in a size 4 diaper, wearing 12-18mos clothes and size 4 shoes
  • are talking a little bit more. You're not nearly as talkative as peanut was at this age but you do say Elmo, Mom/Mommy/Mama, hi, bye, ciao, boo-boo milk {when you want to nurse), bubba, Lo-Lo, banana, nanaw, papa, uh-oh, i love you, dink {drink}, want dat!, and nose.
  • are learning body parts. you know: eyes, nose, mouth, hair, head, belly, booty, feet, toes and fingers. 
  • love to walk backwards. You think it's the funniest thing so you laugh, then your brothers laugh which makes you grin and walk further
  • are FINALLY, FINALLY sleeping through the night and in your crib. From 8pm-7:15am without waking!
  • love to give hugs and kisses. to me, daddy, your brothers, the dog, stuffed animals...you're very loving!
  • are still nursing. First thing in the morning, before nap and before bed are definite. If we're at home and you're board you'll want to nurse more often. 
  • still refuse to sit in a shopping cart and/or stroller. I can wear you or you'll walk holding my hand. 
  • use both your spoon and fork to feed yourself at all meal times and now want a napkin as well. 
  • have very, very curly hair and you like to wear ''pretties'' in it. You did go through a phase of ripping them out but now you bring them to me and want to wear them. 
  • in the last few days have been using the potty. You'll drag your little potty out, tug at your diaper so we'll remove it and you'll sit, and sit and sit. Twice this weekend you pee'd on it and earned 2 m&m's.

 Sissy you are a ball of energy and some days I can barely keep up! I am really glad that we are finally settled into our house. You have your own room, your toys and it's a lot nicer to be able to let you have that freedom to run and play (versus the hotel). You are my little toddler now and I can tell you'll be a handful!
