16 Months Old

Kinley -
I'm not sure how it happened but you're now closer to being 1 1/2 than 12 months old.  That sounds SO big!  Things aren't changing as quickly as they used to but you're still keeping us on our toes!
At 16 months:
Your favorite books include "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," "I Love You Through & Through," any of the "Where is Babies..." lift the flap book, "Googlies," and your picture book.  You definitely have your favorites and will promptly shut the book if I get one out that you don't like.  You love flipping the pages and don't stay on one very long so we have to find books with few words to keep you entertained!
You love to eat Frosted Mini Wheats with fruit in the middle (and dunk them in milk), bananas, greek yogurt, blueberries, mac n cheese, oranges, spaghetti, peaches, PB&J, and scrambled eggs.  Veggies are still not your favorite.
You enjoy reading books, playing with/laying on the dogs, taking baths, running around nakey, playing with your dolls, and rocking on your elephant, horse, & trike.
You learned to say thank you this month which usually sounds more like Tee-too but it works! You still call everyone MOM! I think you use it instead of saying "hey" to get everyone's attention.
You weigh 21-22 pounds and you seem so long to me so you might have grown a little this month!?  You wear size 4 diapers, 18 month clothes, and size 4 shoes.
Grandma gave you your first ponytail this month!  You weren't sure what to think about it but we loved it!  Your hair is growing pretty well in the back so it's looking a bit like a mullet but I can't bring myself to get it trimmed yet.

Your sleep schedule is still pretty random but you usually take at least a 1-2 hour nap per day.  Sometimes you'll get 2 naps in but not usually.  Your bed time has also changed and now it's closer to 8:30 instead of 8:00.  I've learned not to fight you on this one.  I just wait until you act tired & then put you down - it makes life easier on all of us. :)
We made bath paint one night and you were in the tub for 40 minutes!  You loved painting so I think more art projects might be in order.
And can we talk about your faces!?  You have become so animated and love to imitate us when we smile, frown, laugh, and gasp.  You have us smiling & laughing from the moment we wake up and we always get great daily reports from Aunt Sue.
We love you to the moon & back, big girl!
