19 Months!!!

I guess since Caroline's crossed over the 18 month mark, she's officially a "real" toddler. She's on the downhill slide towards 2, and I really can't believe it. I say this every month, but this is such a fun age! Well, except for the running from me in parking lots, occasional tantrum, major stubborness (don't know where she gets that from!), and throwing her plate on the ground after almost every meal. :-) She is growing by leaps and bounds and looks more a like a little girl everyday. Here are some fun facts about Caroline:

*She is starting to put 2 and occasionally 3 words together.

*She still loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and The Fresh Beat Band (but it bothers me that they replaced one of the characters!). She also loves Toy Story 3! She will point out Mickey, Minnie, Buzz, or Woody when she sees them at a store.

*She labels everything, and if she doesn't know what it is, I hear, "what that?".

*Some of her favorite words: Mouse (for Mickey or Minnie), Eeh Beat (for the Fresh Beat Band), cookie, and nilk (milk).

*She will answer "no" but not "yes". She will repeat part of the question back to you to answer yes though (ex--Do you want cookie? Cookie!)

*She is a little parrot and repeats thing constantly (especially when I say "seriously?"). :-)

*We've been doing time out. She sits and says she's sorry and gives me a hug, but she still doesn't really get it. I know this because she usually does what she was in time out for again (like throwing her plate--grrrr!!!).

*Cute story--when we were at dinner for Father's Day, she threw her cup down. I picked it up, looked her in the eyes, and said, "we don't throw our cups down". She looked at me and signed and said "sorry". So sweet! But she still throws them down...oh well.

*She loved the ocean last time we were at the beach! After a wave came, she would say, "more, more".

*Another cute story--we went swimming at our friend's community pool that has a big twisty water slide. Caroline decided she wanted to go down. When we were almost at the top of the steps, she stopped and said, "no". She wouldn't slide and wouldn't go back down. We stood there for awhile, and she finally decided to try it. She laughed the whole way down and asked for "more" as soon as we were at the bottom. We rode 3 more times, and I think she would have gone down by herself if I would have let her!

*She will try to sing along with some songs we sing together and will do the motions (sometimes) for Wheels on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle, If You're Happy and You Know It, and Itsy Bitsy Spider.

*We went back to the ENT today for another check up. We found out that one of her tubes had fallen out last month, so they were going to keep an eye on the hole to see if it started to close up. We found out today that it had started to, so they put another tube in while we were in the office. I was glad that she didn't have to be put to sleep again even though it was really hard to hold her and listen to her cry and call out "Mommy, Mommy". Her tonsils were also a little big, but they said that might be from her strep throat she had last month.

*She is spicy and funny and sweet and a ton of fun!!
