happy 22 months to my love bug

Mia turned 22 months yesterday and I'm kind of dying inside... just 2 more months until our baby turns 2! Not sure why she has to grow so dang fast?? ha ha! I'm sorry this post is a day late, I've been so caught up in our stresses that I totally spaced posting this yesterday, ugh! I promise to be posting an update tomorrow on what's going on. But that's not important now... talking about our Mia girl is! She has been so much fun lately! She such a little jokester and is always laughing! She makes life so much more fun and totally brightens our world! We are so in love with our girl!
- Mia's vocabulary is soaring and it's so fun to hear her mimic us and learn new words! She probably learns a word a day, but here are some that I remembered to write down. "papa", "see ya!", "pwwwease?" (please), "grma" (grandma), "dan!" (dance), "kitty", "go away" (courtesy of little friends... I think we squashed that before it could really become a habit, but I'm sure we will be hearing more of that in our future!), "hurrr" (hurt), "bupple" (apple), "guy/guys", "Sam" (my parents dog), "so-wys" (sorry), "amen", "potty", "flies" (we leave the door open when she plays out back, so we've had a lot of obnoxious flies in the house), "owie", "mine", "owight!" (alright), "r-rr" (water).
- She now shows us head, shoulders, knees, toes (like the song), feet, hands, chin, hair, head, tongue, teeth, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, lips... and tries to repeat the words as we ask her to point to them!
- One night (October 1st) Eric was working late so we face timed him before I put Mia to bed. As we were hanging up Eric said, "I love you!" Mia replied in gibberish ending in, "too!" We are positive that she said, "I love you, too!" in the best way she knew how. Hearts MELTED!
- She has started calling Eric "daddy" and it's so adorable! I'm still "momma" for the most part but every once in awhile she says "mom" or "mommy", but it's rare!
- Mia isn't really interested in potty training, but we sit her on the toilet each night before bath (where she lasts 2 seconds before grabbing toilet paper and flushing) but has yet to actually "use" the potty. But she's created a super fun game where she will flip the lid of the tiny toilet in her Tiny People house, try and sit on the toilet (or as close to it as possible), stand up and put the lid down (it makes the flushing noise) and pull her shirt down or her pants up, ha ha! She will do that on repeat for 5 minutes straight!
- On October 6th Mia took a swig rubbing alcohol. Not the funnest parenting moment. I called Poison Control asap and they told me to feed her to keep her blood sugar levels up, and that she might get drunk. Awesome. When they called back at the hour mark of consumption, she was still acting totally normal so they told me she should be fine! Phew!     
- Mia is kind of obsessive about being clean! When we were painting pumpkins I stripped her down so that we wouldn't get paint on them. Anytime she noticed a drop of paint on her skin she would instantly get super worried, point and say, "uh oh! Oh no! Oh no, no, no!" until I wiped it off. Only then would she continue painting. Since then I've really noticed she runs to me for every little mark she finds on her skin, ha ha!
- We pulled out last year's winter clothes and most of them still fit... yes!! So she will be wearing last years clothes as she still fits in 6-9 month, 12 month and 18 month clothes. She is wearing size 4 and 5 shoes.
- She is still in size 4 diapers.
P.S. I'm selling some of Mia's old clothes and shoes (a lot of them are brand new with tags still attached) as well as a couple items from my closet on agirlycloset's Instagram account! Check it out here if you're interested!

Happy 22 months baby Mia! Have I really been following you long enough that even I feel like she's growing too quickly?!

Pamela said...

HOW IS SHE SO CLOSE TO BEING TWO ALREADY?????? Absolutely love her little shirt!! I want one! :)

Caroline Fleenor said...

Oh my gosh, she looks SO CUTE in her outfit!!! Love those little jeans!! One of my nieces is the same age, she will be two next month. :-) That is great about the potty thing even if she isn't actually going, maybe it will make the training process easier. That's great about all of that talking too!! :-)

Ok her little poses are just too much!! happy 22 months - so close to 2!!

Mia is so precious and I love the message on her shirt. I want it for Emily! I am glad to hear how well she is doing and hitting all those milestones! I think girls are extra chatty compared to boys at that age. My boys took longer to develop language. My oldest son has autism so his is still very much in progress, but he is doing awesome! My son Cole uses quite a variety of words now that he is 4. Emily picks up words very quickly and imitates everything. She will be 2 in February which I am a bit saddened about ,because she is my last baby! Can't wait to plan her party though! :)XO

Karra said...

Rae hates being dirty also!! and she is so cute!

~Dawn~ said...

My goodness, she's such a tiny peanut. Happy 22 months, sweet girl!

Brittany said...

That's so cute to imagine her getting freaked out by the paint on her skin! She's so precious! Also, I can't imagine how scary that probably was when she drank the rubbing alcohol. I would have been a total spazz.

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...

She's such a tiny thing!! We are almost at 22 months and love this age!

Erin LFF said...

Can't believe how long I've been following your blog-- since before Mia was born!!! So scary about the rubbing alcohol, I'm glad she's okay!

erin vancura said...

i LOVE HER. and her sunnies. she looks like she has the cutest and best personality EVER!

tina bumblebee said...

Happy 22 months to her! I wouldn't even worry at all that she isn't interested in potty training yet. I"m sure her body can't even physcially control her bladder yet so don't rush it! ENjoy these young months :)

Laura Darling said...

She just keeps getting cuter and cuter! :)

best shirt!
she sounds so much like Annabelle, it's crazy how fast they grow! Annabelle will be 18 months tomorrow

Sharlee said...

My little girl is tiny... I'm hopeful that some of her summer clothes will for again next year... That would make it a little less painful to pack them up. :)

Jenny said...

So much good fun stuff in this post! Talking is the best - even when they start to sass you its still awesome! At almost 2.5 I'm still mama but dad is daddy. no idea why. So jealous her old clothes still fit her! I'm lucky if something from 6mo ago fits her! She's such a cutie with her sunglasses and mess free paiting ways :)
