Sofia's World: 16 months

16 months little girl and you think you are 2 years old! There is no stopping you; you are the most determined little girl and we are in BIG trouble! You are officially running everywhere and love to be chased! You basically never stop moving. You are also climbing on everything. You can climb on the couch now and love to run across it and bounce on it. I feel like I say "No, Off, Sit Down Get Down," at least 1000 times a day. You look at me with the cutest, sweetest smile and laugh and then keep on going. Oh boy, we are in trouble!

I blame the climbing on your new gymnastics class that you started this month. You absolutely love it.  You climb all over the mats, beams, stairs, through the tunnels, you do it all. You are the youngest in the class but you would never know it. You have no fear and just go for it! You love every second of it and I'm sad there are only a few weeks left. I think we will have to sign you up for another class very soon!

We have had a few unseasonably warm days this month so we got to go out for a walk and it made you so happy. You hate not being able to play outside and I don't blame you. You love splashing in puddles. Even though you cannot jump yet, you still manage to stomp and get yourself very wet, which you love!

You may be a ball of energy and very active, but you do like to snuggle and it is the sweetest thing ever. You love to give hugs and big sloppy kisses. 

You have the best personality and are so full of life, you make us laugh so hard every day!

You had your 15 month check up at the doctor and everything is right on track. You are growing right along your growth curve and hitting all of your milestones as you should. You are 33 inches tall (99%) and weigh 24.5 pounds (85%). You are just an inch behind where your brother was at this age so it looks like you are going to be very tall, which is no surprise. You are over 4 pounds lighter than your brother at this age though so you are a lot leaner. You have almost no baby rolls left because you keep getting taller and it makes me sad.

Your biggest area of development this month has to be speech. You are starting to repeat everything we say. Some of your newest additions are: clean up, panda, oh no, beep beep, choo choo, book, up, down, all done.

Your fourth bottom tooth finally poked through so that brings your total to 8. We should have molars and bicuspids coming up, which are never fun. 

You sleep and eat great. You still take a morning nap for an hour and then 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon. You then sleep 12-13 hours at night. We are so lucky, I know! 

You are still a champion eater, there is almost nothing you won't eat. I would say breakfast is your favorite meal. You can get down on some eggs, waffles, pancakes, sausage, yogurt, etc.!

We love you so much Sofia. You are constantly surprising us with new things you can say and do. We love your wild and crazy, fun-loving personality. You are our favorite little girl in the whole world and we can't wait to see what new and exciting things you are up to next month!
