I had thought I posted this awhile back, but I’ve been pretty behind on posts these days. Life gets busy and I’ve been living in the moment more and more these days. It’s been nice to reflect though on all the memories we’ve created and put them into words on her blog.
I wanted to do a 21 month update on Nealia last month and all the little milestones she’s hit, but time slipped away and here we are in her 22nd month! Crazy! So, that’s what this post is dedicated to. I probably forgot a million things, but I’m trying to remember all the little things she does each day! Time just flies by!
-she knows know left and right hand and feet! We’ve been practicing for a few weeks and she can tell you which is which!
-can halfway dress herself
-gets socks and shoes on
-enjoys taking care of her babies and playing in her kitchen (little Betty homemaker)
-loves loves play doh
-loves to be outside and loves to hike-we did a fun hike at red rocks last month with friends and she insisted on walking every part of the way. She climbed little bluffs and hills and just loved every minute of it.
-playing at the park is by far her favorite thing right now
-she loves to be in the kitchen and watches or helps me cook
-we love making smoothies together too–she still calls them “Moothies”!
-knows colors and most basic shapes
-can count to 10 with my help!
-knows how old she will be in June for her bday! The big “2”
-can relay a story to you…this blows my mind–she recalls any event and retells it in short 3-4 word sentences! It’s crazy! She watches a kids movie and then will recite the story after!
-speaks in 3-4 word sentences
-so independent–she always says “no no Nealia do” for everything in this really funny voice!
-loves to sing and dance and play all her instruments!
-all of a sudden in love with her talking Elmo-he goes everywhere with us!
-I’ve missed a bunch most likely but that’s what I can remember for now!
–stop growing up so fast sweet little girl! You’re such an angel and a gift to be around each day…you’re truly my sunshine in this life!! (Love, Your Mama)
