happy 17 months to my love bug

- Mia girl is a pro at climbing/pulling herself up these days. She successfully pulled herself onto a park bench a few weeks ago and since then she has perfected climbing on couches, boxes, chairs and even pulling herself into vehicles! This is terrifying for me because I can easily see her going too high and falling back without me there to catch her, AH!
- She is the biggest helper and loves to throw stuff away. She finds trash (usually random pieces of paper) and throws them away all on her own! And of course she will toss her diapers, or anything else we ask her to throw away.
- Mia is obsessed with flushing the toilet. When she sees me heading for the bathroom she gets SO excited and runs in after me, shuts the door and waits until flushing time. Disgusting, I know. But all you mommas get me, right?
- On that note, she has finally caught on to getting a clean diaper (when we ask) which makes her much more willing to get her diaper changed! I wish I could just get her to bring me a diaper (without being asked) when it's time to be changed!
- Mia kinda understands blowing her nose. She sometimes gets a runny nose while teething and a couple weeks ago I caught her holding a tissue to her nose and making the blowing noise :)
- Her favorite (or one of her many favorite) things to do is play in the drivers seat! We make her day when we pull her on our lap and let her turn the stealing wheel and mess with all of the knobs. The windshield wipers and volume knob really get a workout when Mia is in charge!  
- She had officially made the switch to one nap a day. I was kind of bummed about it at first, but it's been great for freeing up time to do more activities. Plus her naps are usually 3 hours long :) 
- I don't really know what to say about her eating habits. Mia pretty much eats anything we put in front of her, but some days she's not in the mood. For example, one day we can't give her enough blue berries and the next? She won't touch 'em! But I can always count on her cleaning up a plate of pasta or oranges. Those two are by far her favorites! 
- Mia has added "bye" (byyyyyye), "baby" (bee-ee), "boo" and "binky" (gee-gee) to her vocabulary. I'm not excited about the last one... we need to get rid of the binky before she becomes any more attached... but I'm scared!
- She used to be terrified of animals but lately she is obsessed! Anytime she sees one outside she yells "hey!" and runs up to pet it if it's a little cat or dog :) She got brave and petted my parents boxer dogs all on her own this last week!
- Mia still wears 6-9 month and 12 month clothes, but I busted out her 18 month summer clothes (which are adorrrrrable!) and she fits in some of those really great! She's a size 3 shoe and still just a tiny little peanut! She looks a lot bigger than she really is in photos!
- She still wears size 3 diapers but I think it's about time to move up to size 4!
I really wish her wardrobe came in my size!
I can't believe we are a month away from Mia turning a year and a half old! I know I say it all the time, but it's crazy how time keeps flying! A year and a half used to seem like such a short time, but I barely remember what life was like before Mia came into our lives. We are so lucky that she's the funnest, sweetest little girl around! We are just as whipped as the day we laid eyes on her!

Happy 17!! So cute about the nose noises, Aria does that too...or when I boogie wipe her after a bath she will make the noises. I love it! Aria just started climbing up onto everything, dear Lord it is terrifying! I am washing up her high chair and next thing I know she is standing on a dining room chair shaking it for all her worth. oy

I understand the toilet issue all too well... except mine doesn't like to flush... he likes to stick his hand on the toilet! Oy!

Mia and Avalon are into a lot of the same things, throwing things away....toilet flushing.....climbing, climbing, climbing!!! And then you made me feel like Avalon is a beast because she has been wearing size 4 diapers since she was 9 months old! LOL!!! But Mia is the cutest love her little outfit :) :)

Hannah said...

hahaha... flushing the toilet! I die. That is hilarious. I can totally see my little guy wanting to do that in a month or so; he already bolts to the bathroom any time I open the door. Crazy how fast they grow!

Elizabeth said...

Love Always,

She's such a cute little one!!! And her personality seems like so much fun! It's so crazy to me how quickly they learn things!! How much does Mia weigh? I think her and carter are about the same size! He's in a size 3 shoe- though he has a big foot for his age and he's wearing about the same size clothing.
