Lillian Grace: 19 Months Old

Nineteen Months

"One morning Little Bear sat up in bed and sniffed and sniffed with his nose.  "Something wonderful is going to happen," he said.  "My nose tells me so."
~ The Sweet Smell Of Christmas by Patricia Scarry


Weight:   21lbs

Height:   32”

Wearing: Size Twelve - Eighteen Month ... she has VERY long legs, Size 4 Shoe

Motor Milestones: It seems that Lilly has switched from focus on large motor skills to fine motor skills this month.  She has master running and jumping and kicking.  So now she is practicing very funny things, like picking up "bugs" off the floor, bugs can be any kind of crumb or dirt.  She likes to try and snap her fingers and turn book pages (paper) ever so carefully.  She has also gotten much better with her utensils, although last night we had rice and she picked up single grains with her fingers, then placed them on her spoon, then used the spoon.  Dinner took forever!!

Language Milestones: Wow ... that is her go to word this month.  We put up our Christmas tree and she is Wowed.. by it.  She likes to ask .. "tree, please" and then gently point to all the kitty ornaments on the tree, then she likes to sit in her rocking chair and just look at the tree, shouting Wow every now and then.  She is also learning more and more small sentences ... "It's okay baby," "Fish, please," "Tree, please,"  "No, Water ... Milk, Yup"

Highlights:
·         Got her top two molars, so now she can actually enjoy eating more foods. 
·         Has her first Fish Pet, and loves to feed it.
·         Is excited for Christmas and loves to take naps with Baby Jesus

Favorites:  looking at Christmas Trees, dancing to Christmas music, knocking over block towers, twirling on her toes, bacon & pineapple pizza, singing Wheels on the Bus and Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes, shaking jingle bells.
