My computer is fixed and, Sissy is 23 months old!!

My computer parts arrived just in time for Sissy's monthly photos. This month Sissy is now 23 months old! At 23 months you.....

  • weigh 20.5 lbs, wears a size 18mos clothing, a size 6 shoe and a size 3 in diapers. You seem to get taller and taller each day. Right now you are 33 inches tall. At a year old, you were 29inches...you grew 4 inches in 11 months but only gained 2 pounds. No wonder you went from a size 4 diaper, back to a size 3...you lost what little bit of chubby you had! And shopping for you is difficult...Waist wise you can fit into 9 and 12 month stuff, but lengthwise you need 18mos if not 24 months. Hence why you wear a LOT of skirts, leggings and dresses; jeans are hard to fit. 
  • enjoy the freedom of walking at the store now. You rarely sit in the cart, you'd rather hold on to the side and walk with me. Most of the time you do great!
  • finally, after 23 loooooong months, you quit breastfeeding! I was surprised at how easily you were able to stop; you saw a friend nurse her newborn baby and said ''boobies for babies?" and I said ''Yep, boobie milk is for babies. Big girls drink milk in a cup" and ever since then, you've given it up!
  • are learning your colors. So far you can say and identify: yellow, blue, pink, purple and green. 
  • love to dress yourself. You can pull on/take off diaper covers, underwear and pants by yourself. You can take dresses off but not on.
  • love to draw. You can draw straight lines as well as circles and when asked to draw one, you do so correctly.
  • clear your own plate after dinner. You'll even throw your napkin in the trash, dump the food in the specific bin (we have to seperate ''humid'' waste) and put your plate in the sink. 
You really are turning into such a big girl and no longer our little baby, it's a mixed blessing!
