16 months

Mommy's little angel turned 16 months this past Tuesday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I have absolutely loved spending my Summer with her. And while I am ready to go back to work to gain back adult conversation during the day, I'm also dreading leaving my sweet little girl!
How could I not love this sweet girl???
What is little Miss Jillian up to these days??

  • She's still wearing all 12 month clothes. I was looking at her in her clothes the other day and was trying to figure out how the clothes are still so big on her. When I took them off her that night, I looked at the tag. The minimum weight recommendation is 20.5 lbs. Well according to our scale, Jillian barely makes it. Guess we'll be in 12 month clothes for quite a while longer! Mommy and Daddy are definitely happy about the clothes budget, though!

  • She's still in size 3 diapers.
  • She now has 12 teeth, we got two more molars this past month.

  • Her vocabulary is increasing daily. Just in the past few days she's picked up "hot," "eat," "wa" (water,) "cow," "ice." I know there are more, but this is just what I could come up with off the top of my head. She's like a sponge!

  • She loves singing and dancing. She has a dog that plays music and whenever she hears "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes" start playing she immediately points to her eyes and says "eyes" for the "Eyes and ears and mouth and nose" part. She also hates any music that resembles a lullaby. Anytime she hears one of her many toys play a lullaby she starts crying! Should be interesting when they play a lullaby to get her to sleep at Mother's Day Out...
Watching the Wiggles and singing and dancing along.

    • She loves sliding on her playhouse. We brough it downstairs earlier this month for some friends to come over and play and she had a blast on it!

    Then crying because I wouldn't give her the camera...

    • She has really started getting into girly things lately like dressing up. She's had an obsession with shoes for a while, but she has now also turned her attention to jewelry. Speaking of shoes, her feet have grown again this summer and she's now wearing a size 4 shoe.

    Accessories are always necessary, even when you're sitting in a box!

    • She absolutely loves being outside. Unfortunately, it's been so hot that Mommy hasn't been the easiest to convince that we need to be outside.

    • We got Jillian her first snowcone this past weekend and she loved it! Her eating habits haven't changed much since last month. She eats pretty much the same things. However, I have started giving her bigger pieces to eat. Tonight she had her first half a sandwich. After that experience I've decided that a half was a little too much and I'll be giving her quarter sandwiches from now on!

    Enjoying her mouth and all! MMM...cherry!

    • She loves bedtime and bath time. All we have to say is "Do you want to take a nap/bath?" or "Are you ready to go night night?" and she drops whatever she's doing, smiles and runs to the stairs. We have to be careful not to say anything like that before it's time or we have a meltdown on our hands.

    Jillian is absolutely the light of our life! She cracks us up with her personality on a daily basis. Frank and I feel so blessed to have such a happy and healthy little girl.
