Happy 20 Months Sweet Girl

What I will remember most about Abby at this age- how funny she is! People are just drawn to her and we can't go into a public place without someone asking us "how old she is?" or telling us how cute she is. She just draws attention, sometimes because of her not-so-favorable behavior.
We recently learned to huff (exhale while bending arms and placing hands into armpits) and to exclaim, "I'm Mad". We are working on replacing hitting and throwing with letting her just say, "I'm Mad." The hitting is a regular occurrence when we don't get our way. It is a work in progress.
Our favorite foods right now are dried apples, pasta, cheese, peas, carrots and corn. She will eat massive amounts of peas and just loves them. We are struggling to get her to eat meat. The only meat she will eat on a consistent basis- Chick-fil-a nuggets! We still love milk, drink lots of water and sometimes mix a little tea in the water.
I think we are right on track size-wise. Abby wears 18-24 month clothes, moved into a size 5 diaper recently, and is now in a size 4 or 5 shoes depending upon the brand. I think our little feet are finally in the normal size range. As she runs and plays more, we are seeing her little baby face turn into a little girl face and her baby belly disappear. No thigh or arm rolls are left.
We still love Yo Gabba Gabba like crazy. She carries her Foofa doll most anywhere we will let her. She has been known to throw a fit when we don't allow her up on the couch to watch her show and force her to play in her room. Luckily, she recovers pretty quickly. She names all characters verbally and has learned to say, "that's not right" after an episode.

Verbally, we've been told she is very advanced. Most any word you say, she'll repeat if you ask her. Sometimes it is spot on and sometimes only the inflection matches up. We have been working on counting 1-5 and our primary colors. She is getting better at both!

No more progress on the potty. Going #2 unexpectedly has really scared her away from even sitting on the potty.

Did you know that Yo Gabba Gabba Live is going to be at the Cedar Park Center on December 11th? It would be an easy birthday present for your little girl!
