22 Month Update & Let the 2nd Birthday Party Planning Begin!

Gabriella 22 months Latest Developments: 

  • Your new favorite book is Arthur’s Tooth. You walk around saying, “Ar-tooth, Ar-tooth” over and over again. I think we have read it over five hundred times.
  • You can say SO many words. I think there are something like 100+ now. I’ve lost count. Also, you are stringing them together to make simple sentences and express your thoughts. You also get really frustrated when you can’t tell me something.
  • Temper Tantrums! This is new, and not too often, but often enough to know that we are headed for your second birthday. Must do more research on this.
  • You are so obsessed with dogs and Elmo. I hid you two stuffed Elmo’s for now, because you would freak out if one of them wasn’t in your crib with you. Or, better yet, if you don’t want to have a nap you fling Elmo to the floor and scream for him until someone comes in and gives him back to you.
  • You love to go down your slide.
  • Every day, you tell us to get the mail from the mailman.  You have become OBSESSED with the mail. On Sunday or holiday’s when there is no mail you tend to freak out if we don’t walk over to the mailboxes.
  • Your favorite dvd is The Best of Elmo and you watch it every morning when you wake up.
  • You are such a little helper. You help take the laundry out of the dryer and put it in the basket, you like to help push the vacuum, and you like to help put away the groceries. You did smash your first dozen of eggs, but I guess it happens to all of us at one point or another.
  • You basically don’t eat any veggies, but you recently decided you like corn. Also, does cucumber count as a veggie because you love a cold cucumber.
  • You love when your cousins visit. Its so nice to be close to them.
  • You have been trying new things like jumping and standing on your head.
  • You don’t mind having a couple of stuffed animals in your crib when you sleep. I though I would never see the day you shared your crib with another thing. Elmo, Eeyore, and Sweet Pea are your favorites.
  • You are learning to sleep with a blanket. You have been wearing a SleepSack since you were born. Every time I put a blanket in you would toss it on the floor. Guess you realized how snuggly they are after all. Next, a pillow!
Clothes: You’re wearing 2T in both tops and bottoms, but 3T in PJ’s.
Sleep: Bedtime is around 6:30/7PM. Lately you have been waking up during the night and calling out for me, but I just ask you to go back to sleep {from the comfort of my own bed} and you do.
Nap(s): Just one nap a day now. Noon on the dot. You sleep for one and a half to two hours. I am trying to push this back to at least 1 because it really messes up any plans we can make for the day.
Eating: You drink your whole milk from a bottle and will only drink water from the sippy cup. We need to work on this…STILL!!!! 
Teeth: 4 top teeth and 4 bottom teeth plus 2 top and 3 bottom molars. There are more teeth pushing though and I think its the fang teeth on top.
Happy 22 month birthday sweet girl!
