Sofia's World: 20 Months

20 months little girl! It's crazy to think that you will be 2 in just four short months. You already act like a 2 year old, but its still so hard to believe. You are just growing up too fast! You continue to be so much fun and full of joy. You are always smiling and happy. You never stop, you are go, go, go! You keep us on our toes that is for sure. You make us laugh all day long, you make the funniest faces and have the best personality. You are still talking like crazy I can't even keep track of how many words you can say. I would put the number around 200 which is insane considering your brother was around 75 words at this age. You can say the full alphabet and you can now count to 10! You are a total sponge and soak up everything happening around you. 

Being outside is still your favorite activity and we have been playing outside a lot lately now that the weather is cooperating. You stand at the door and say, "outside, outside, outside." When we drive past a park and you see a playground you say, "slide," which is your favorite activity at the park. You squeal every time you go down one. You think you are a lot bigger than you are though and have no fear. Daddy and I have to watch you like a hawk to make sure you don't fall off any of the openings on the play sets. I know you are just going to be in love with finally having a backyard at our new house! 

Along with the great Summer type weather we have been having come some good and not so good firsts. 

Good firsts: first popsicle, new sunglasses, discovering whirlybirds 

Bad firsts: first scraped knee and I'm sure it won't be the last

Along with being outside, I would say your next favorite thing would be singing and dancing. You sing all day long! Your favorites are Happy Birthday (which you always sing to yourself), ABC song, Twinkle, Twinkle, Wheels on the Bus and your new favorite, Ring around the Rosie. To go along with all of that singing, you love to dance and you have some moves! You are such a good dancer! I can't wait to sign you up for dance this Fall!

A new interest for you is stickers, you are obsessed! You are getting pretty good at taking them off the sheet too. You love taking them off and sticking them all over your face, arms, legs! 

Sofia you are just pure joy inside a little girl! Your smile could make even the crankiest person's day better. I still can't believe that you are mine. We are so lucky to call you our daughter and we love you to the moon and back! We can't wait to see what fun things you'll be doing next month!
