Madelyn: 23 Months


Dear baby girl,

You are 23 months old.  One more month and you'll be 2!  Cannot believe it.  Stop growing, please.

-Wearing size 18 month and 2T clothes.  You are in size 5 diapers and size 6 shoe.

-You tried potty training at the beginning of this month and you weren't quite ready.  You're showing a little more interest.  You'll get there.

-Still 11 teeth, but one more pushing it's way through.

-"talking" like crazy.  Still mostly babble.  You won't say words when we ask you...normally on your own time.

-Napping anywhere from 2-4 hours in the afternoon. Your typical nap is from 1-3:30pm.

-Still loving on your little brother.  You've also started pestering him this month.  Poking his eyes, "honking" his nose and pushing him over.

-Because of the above, you've started time outs already.  The third time we have to tell you "no" or "stop", you go in the time out chair for 1min 45 sec.  You've actually stayed there and stop doing it when we your time is up.

-Still love using your fork and spoon!

-You went roller skating for the first time this month and had such a good time!

-Still very VERY girly.  Love all things pink and sparkly.

-You still go to bed around 7pm.  You'll wake up around 7:30-8am.

-You celebrated your 2nd Valentine's Day!

-You had your very first dentist appointment!
