19 months old hurts!

Clover turned 19 months old today, and ended the day with a massively large shiner on her forehead. She was running around playing with Daddy and slipped and fell head first onto the hardwood floors. 

Other than the huge goose egg, I think Clover is really going to like being 19 months old.

She is so smart, so fun, so sweet...and so independent and challenging at times.

Teeth: At 17 months old she had 6 teeth, by 18 months old she had 12. She still has 12.

Favorite books: One week, the only book she would let me read at bedtime was Outside Over There - over and over again. When Miss Opinionated allows me to read other books, her current favorites are Peter Spit a Seed at Sue, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Where the Wild Things Are, In The Night Kitchen, The Pout Pout Fish and Goodnight Moon.

She loves to "sing" and has become really good at "singing along".  She especially likes to sing the abc's, twinkle twinkle little star, open shut them, and ring around the rosie (which sounds a little like "do blah da djklow fjkldow DOWN"). 

She is now a pro at repeating things she hears.  Like the other day when a car cut me off and I slammed on my breaks and said "shit!"... she repeated "shit! shit! shit!" about five times... She might still say it on occasion...

She loves Curious George and Sesame Street.

Her favorite foods are black beans, cheerios, any and all fruit, and pizza.

She loves music and is a really good fist pumper dancer.

She loves going to the zoo, playing at the park, lounging in the pool, playing with jewelry and carrying purses, singing, dancing, painting, reading and going out to eat with JuJu.

She desperately wants a bike.

I leave you with a few cute photos my ever talented friend, Megan, took of her and Layne in the pool the other day! How cute are they?
