She has 2 real words used correctly without prompting and those are "mommy" and "uh oh".. Everything else she wants or needs she goes "ah, ah, ah" at while pointing. She can mimic a lot and is starting to say "tank to" appropriately. Although she can't say much, she understands everything.You can ask her to go get a diaper, to get her shoes, to throw something in the trash......and she will go do it. She babbles a lot and has the sweetest little voice that we all adore hearing.
She loves shoes and always wants to put them on. She also likes hair clips and pig tails. Her molars are coming in and she hasn't even been bothered by it. She still loves the pacifier and goes to sleep with 2 infant ones every night. One in her mouth and one in her hand. She loves to sit on a booster or her desk to eat. She insists on using a spoon or fork now. Anything the big girls are doing she wants to do. She loves to play in the backyard with Emma. She loves to sit at the kitchen table and color with Ryan. She has a bit of a temper and we are seeing some glimpses of tantrums when she does not get her way. She is still a total mommy's girl and loves for me to hold her. She continues to be a rock star sleeper and on a fantastic schedule. She goes right into her crib at 7:30 (no rocking needed) and sleeps until we wake her at 8 to take big girls to school. I don't think she has woken up in the night in over 6 months. She still takes 2 solid naps a day and goes down just as easy and wakes up happy. There really is nothing better than a well rested baby. I strongly believe that a solid sleep schedule early on (which is tough with a tiny baby) pays off 100 times in the long run. I have 3 good sleepers to prove it!
Polly is precious and we are so thankful for her. I cherish every day of her life and I know I will blink and she will be two.
