When I think about Brielle being 19 months old all I can think of is the fact that Brielle was born when Raya was 19 months old....wow. I mean, I guess perception is everything, and at the time with Raya I didn't think much of it, but now with Brielle I simply can't imagine bringing home a baby right now....Brielle is still a baby! haha. As I've said many times though, I love that Raya and Brielle are so close in age, but at the same t ime I'm extremely glad that I get to continue enjoying Brielle as my youngest and I don't have to go through months of tv and cheerios for her while I'm constantly feeding and caring for a new baby!
As far as 19 month stats, Brielle has officially outgrown size 12 month now! She's a pretty solid 18 months now....and most of our winter stuff for her is size 24 months (hand me downs from Raya) and when I held them up to her the other day they still look so huge....so we'll see what I can make work! Actually the 18-24 month size for tops is ok, it's the pants and dresses that are way too long on my little shorty :-) She is in size 5 shoes and size 4 diapers. She takes one nap a day (usually 12:30-3) and she sleeps all night long (8pm-6:30/7am). She's forward facing in her carseat now this month and she can now do shorter trips without a stroller or diaper bag (yay!). New moms are so excited to carry diaper bags, but I celebrate it's death lol. I now stick two diapers and a baggie of wipes in my purse and we're off---sweet freedom! She eats well with silverware, can drink from a straw, can climb anything and at the park she plays on the "big kid" equipment and leaves the baby section in her dust :-P
Milestone wise the big development this month has been LANGUAGE! Wow, she's had quite a language boom. I don't know if it was getting the tubes in her ear (she can probably hear better now) or just a coincidence, but she now repeats pretty much anything you ask her to say. She says "mom-meeeeeee" all the time, and it's usually in a squeaky little whine voice lol. When she wakes up in her crib she goes through the list of people who might come to get her ..."mom-meeeeeee, dad-deeeeeeee, gram-maaaaaa" ....and her favorite word by a mile is "no!" ...she says this with great force ALL. DAY. LONG. As far as multiple word phrases she doesn't say a ton yet...but she does say "there it is!" when we're looking for something and then find it haha.
Now for some pictures from yesterday, to document her 19 months....enjoy!
|She was in a modeling mood again lol...I think she likes the attention she gets when she's being cute for pictures!|
|Trying to figure out how the whole pose thing works hehe|
|She just keeps getting prettier as she gets older!|
|...well, except for these crazy smoosh faces haha|
|I was chasing her and saying I was going to pinch her butt lol...it's a favorite game of hers|
|Ok, now stop it Mama...game over :-P|

|Here's to the next 19 months! :-)|
