Month 16

Just stopping to smell the roses

It finally happened!!! You are getting your front teeth! You still put everything in your mouth including your crayons... we are still working on that. Mimi and Papi got you sidewalk chalk for Easter, which also tends to make it into your mouth,  and you love putting your mark on the back porch. You are definitely a girlie-girl. You love princess things, jewelry, and combing mommy's hair. You hate when your hands are dirty or sticky and refuse to walk on sand or grass. You have no problem bare-footing your way to the jump jump.. which is starting to lose your interest. It is starting to warm up and you love to swim at the community center. You aren't very daring on the kiddie water slide yet, but that will come later. You are a natural swimmer; kicking your legs and moving your arms, as you become more independent. I know you won't want mommy's help soon.  You have mastered most all of the animal sounds although you still don't know what sound a cat makes... or just refuse to do it. Your favorite lately is the piggy noise, which I never get sick of. Noelle, you are able to more easily communicate what you want and if there is one thing you want lately it is POPCORN! It is definitely a favorite in the house right now.  We have visitors almost every weekend and you just love the constant attention. Aunt Tiffany is definitely your favorite right now. Usually, while I am doing dishes you will find your cell phone and make a few calls... all of which sound very important. Pacing the hall with identical mannerisms as your father and I, along with the continuous "Hi!" into the pink device, makes me think that we spend way to much time on our phones. You are my little friend, we do everything together and I wouldn't have it any other way. Walks, splash pad, swimming, grocery shopping, pulling weeds, putting on make up, windexing the mirrors, swiffering the floor, and sorting laundry. I am constantly amazed by how bright you are. You study the world around you and learn new things everyday.

 These are a few of your favorite things.


 Whole grain blueberry Eggo waffles in the morning, with a side of bad bed head   :)

 Aunt Tiffany and Uncle Sean brought these when they last visited and you haven't take them off since.

You also love hiking with your mommy or "MA!" as you would say.

 Not only do you love putting things in your mouth, but you love playing on Grandpa's pool table

Anything sweet and cold! A teether's best friend. Thanks mimi!!
