21 months!

making a mess

Dear Punkin Pie,

You are 21 months old. In three months, you will be TWO! That is so unbelievable to me! Two years ago, I was enjoying my pregnancy with you and starting to develop a nice, round belly while you grew big and strong inside of me. And now you are growing big and strong right before my eyes! You are really enjoying learning about your world and exploring everything you can, which really means getting into things.

The weather has gotten warmer, so we have been able to spend a lot of time outside, which is a blessing. You enjoy having the freedom to run and play, and you like picking up sticks, acorns, and rocks along the way. You like to "help" with the yard work and ask for your turn with the rake. You were not walking last spring and summer, so we are having a good time toddling around the outdoors.

Last month you had your first trip to the Holyoke Children's Museum with me and Uncle Rick. You called him "Uncle Ick" and had a fantastic time running around and playing with all of the toys. Uncle Rick and Aunt Gretchen love you so much and wish they lived closer and could spend more time with you. They are glad for every moment they can get!

You had a play date with Nolan, who is the son of some of Mama and Mommy's friends. He is a few months older than you and the two of you had a lot of fun on your little slide. Mama found that slide on the side of the road last summer and dragged it home even though you couldn't walk yet. You are really getting a lot of use out of it this spring and I'm sure you will continue to love it in the coming months. We hope to get you a play set this year as well.

You are getting so big and look much more like a little girl than a baby. You think you are running and you yell "fast! fast!" but really you are just walking a little more quickly. You are starting to walk down stairs if someone is holding your hand, but we still have a long way to go. You are coloring circles and can identify every letter of the alphabet and some numbers. You sing so many songs, and know almost all the words to the Super Why theme. You are nearly 3' tall and probably weigh about 28 pounds. And you are still rear-facing in your car seat, as long as we can get away with it.

As always, I love being your Mama.
