21 months

"It's mine"- is Polly's new favorite thing to say, right up there with "no". She is also learning some manners and can say "peaz" and "tank you".
She is really talking a lot now and we can understand most of it.
She can say "Emma" and "Wy Wy" for her sisters. And she loves to say "puppy" when she sees Maggie.
She is quite the mimic and can really say anything you ask her to.
She loves to point and say all her body parts- especially on the face and her "bee-bo" (she insists on everyone in the room showing her theirs too!).
This past month she has started to tell us when she poops.  So that is a step in the right direction towards potty training, although I think we have a long way to go.
We are just about to finally switch her from 2 naps a day to one long afternoon nap.  She is my longest 2 nap a day baby.  She really likes to lay back down after being up a couple hours in the morning, so this may take a few weeks to get down.  It will make it a lot easier to get back into church again!
She loves to be outside and she will play out in the back yard with the dogs for long stretches of times. She loves the ladder and slide on the swing set, the trampoline and the sand box.
She still LOVES shoes and always wants them put on first thing. :-)
Polly has been deemed a "micro terrorist" by her daddy because she can destroy a room in no time.  She is also showing some terrible two moves- throwing some fits and being very defiant at times.  Thank goodness she is so cute.   We all love her so much.

Too cool

She figured out her new trike right away and makes laps around the house.

Lots of fun with Emma!

She is getting good with the spoon!
She also insists on using spoons with every meal.

She loves to feel like a big girl and do what her sisters do.

Unfortunately, she still poops in the tub.
But, she did tell me!
