19 Months

Wow, what a fun month packed with experiences, memories and traditions!   We spent the holiday season focused on the Lord.  Every Sunday you lit the Advent candle at church (with mommy's help). Speaking of are so funny at church.  You walk around and greet everyone, you think you own the place.  You are affectionately known as the church baby.  For the last several months, when I tell you it is time to pray "you will fold your hands and start saying, "Amen" over and over" (it is pretty cute).  I look forward to watching you grown in your faith and build an unbreakable faith in the Lord.

Size: You are wearing12-18 month clothes. You are still wearing size 3 diapers. You finally broke the 20 pound mark! You may be small but you are mighty!

Eating: You love your food...except vegetables. For the life of me I can not get you to eat vegetables (unless I trick you and most of the time you still catch me). You are only nursing 1 or 2 times a day at most.  I am letting you decide how our breastfeeding relationship goes. 

Sleep Schedule: Sleep schedule...the only schedule we have is you go to bed around 7:00-7:30pm but you often wake up several times a night and always early in the morning.  I just always remind myself that you will only be little for a while so I need to appreciate all the extra cuddle time.

Likes: You have lots of likes; music, dancing, playing with Max, Bunny, Lovey, Barney, going outside, arts and crafts, taking baths, playing with your cousins and swimming!

Dislikes:   You are finally starting to do better in the car. Currently getting your diaper changed is not a top priority.  You fight me the whole don't have time to lay still for 2 minutes.  You are a typical 19 month old and you dislike anything that is not your idea!

Events:  This month we celebrated the birth of Jesus our savior.  While we did enjoy several traditional holiday experiences we tried to stay focused on Jesus.  One of your favorite activities was watching the train go around the bottom of the tree.  You would often accidently knock the train off the tracks and try to fix it yourself (it was pretty cute)! You liked the train but you never really messed with the tree (which was nice).  On Christmas you were really excited about your kitchen but not opening presents.  Once we opened the gift you were excited.  Christmas was so much fun and I look forward to celebrating many more holidays as a family.
