My Month in iPhone Pics: Lily is 20 Months Old!

I haven't posted iPhone pics in over a month, so here are some of the pics from December as I tell you about my amazing ever-changing 20-month old! (Two birds and all that...)

Lily: you are a crazy little person. I know I skipped your 19-month post, don't be mad. I cannot believe how much has changed in the past two months. You have truly become a kid.

You are so loving, like I ask for a hug and you walk across the room with your arms out to give it to me. Sometimes they come unprovoked, those are the best. 

You talk SO much. I think your first full sentence was "Where is she? There she is!" Which has now transformed into "Where'd it go?" You say "Oh no!" a lot with much concern. Sometimes if you wake in the middle of the night you become very concerned about different thing, namely "oh no, ball!" and "oh no, ducky!"

Words that end in "k" get a kay sound from you. Duck is "duckay", there is also "bookay" "kickay" and "walkay". It is adorable. I can't even list all the words you know, it amazes me every day.

Now that we are communicating more it REALLY frustrates you if we don't understand. For awhile we had to have a lot of talks about not hitting, but it seems to have lessened recently. Any time we talk sternly to you you immediately hug and kiss us. Trickster.

You love love love playing with other kids, which we don't do nearly often enough.

Your favorite thing to do is read books. By yourself, or with us, doesn't matter to you. Just give me a bookay!

You pretty much have all of your teeth except your 2-year molars. The top canines are still pushing through but they weren't nearly as painful as the bottom 2.

You are SO tall. Taller than almost all the boys. This is a good thing and don't you forget it!

Sometimes you sing to yourself or ask us to sing and if we sing the wrong song you say "no, no, no" until we get the right one.

You were so in love with our Christmas tree you would just squeal "treeeee!" and "pretty!" All you wanted to do all day was go look at it and try to put your toys in it. One evening we lost power for a few hours and the tree wasn't lit, so you made sure to take the battery-operated fake flames we used for our pumpkins last Halloween and stick them all in the tree. It was quite pretty. I am glad we didn't have a fake tree or I may have been tempted to leave it up for you year-round.

You smile big scrunchie-nosed smiles and laugh big laughs all the time. You also love to dance and do ring-around-the-rosy, but I have to make you fall down at the end.

You talk on your play phones a lot, always starting with the tiniest "hi" and then some jabbering, a big laugh and a tiny sing-song "bye".

Oh there is so much more that I love about you I just can't put it all into words. You are becoming my little buddy and you make me so happy every day.
