21 Months old!

Sissy, I am late posting this but I didn't forget that on July 4th, you turned 21 months old. There are two reasons I find this hard to believe:
1- I can't believe that time has gone by so quickly!
2- You still fit into the outfit you wore last year on the 4th of July. I didn't buy the same outfit in two sizes...it's a 12 month Osh Kosh outfit that still fits!
It's just so surreal how much you have grown and changed in one year. I mean, look at all that hair! At 21 months you:

-are showing your girly side more an more. You *have* to have a bow in at all times. You use those baby links as bracelets. You love to watch "Tangled". You have four or five dolls that you load up in your stroller and push around the house, stopping every 5 feet to give hugs and kisses.
-weigh 21lbs and still wear 12-18 month clothing. Shoe size 5, and they actually fit now. 
-have so many teeth! All four molars and all your front teeth with the exception of one incisor.
-still breastfeed first thing in the morning and before bed {we finally cut out the naptime feeding}
-can talk, but won't. You'd much rather point and plead, then whine, scream and hit, when you could just simply say ''drink please''. And your brothers will say ''Mom, Sissy wants a drink''. And I remind them that mommy knows what Sissy wants, but that Sissy needs to use her words. The problem is we all know what you want so you don't need to talk. We're trying to slowly change this!
-know all your body parts! 
-are going through a picky phase with your food. Cheese, yogurt, chicken, bread, cereal, pasta, any fruit, tomato, corn, and any junk food you will definitely eat. Meat and veggies...not so much. I'm trying not to push it, hoping its just a phase. 
-will no longer use a sippy cup, anywhere. You've been using ''real'' cups at home for awhile but I could pack a sippy if we went somewhere...now your refuse to drink it. 
-love to brush your teeth and wash your hands all by yourself. I always double check when you're done, but you do an awesome job!

Sissy you are a little spitfire, definitely your own unique person and I can't imagine life without you in it!
