Elliotte 16 Months

Elliotte turned 16 months old on November 30th or December 1st. Those with 31st birthdays get to choose! I can't believe E is so big! My baby has turned into a little girl (complete with little girl attitudes!). I have enjoyed watching her learn and explore. Nothing is off limits with this one! She's curious and determined but also so sweet. She kisses my mom's knee that has had a replacement! We have so much fun these days!

At 16 months Elliotte:
Doesn't say much but understands what we tell her
Knows most animals and can point them out
Knows all the family and points to them or looks at them when you say their names
When you ask her what a cat says, she yells "YOW" for meow
LOVES Mickey Mouse and Elmo (she goes nuts when the "hot dog" song comes on)
Gives kisses and hugs all the time
Still takes 2 naps a day. She loves her bed and Pinkie, her lovie.
Loves books, especially peek-a-boo books
Still eats everything we put in front of her
Has had 2 black eyes (more on that later)
Can spot a dog a mile away and has to go see it
Goes to MDO 2 days a week and can't wait to get to her class
Still puts everything in her mouth
Has worn her first (tiny) bow :)

16 month stats:
Length: 33 inches (95% we knew that one was coming!)
Weight: 24#2oz (60%)

Leah's 1st b'day party. She turned 1 on Nov. 25th. These two are going to be trouble...

Black eye :( E decided to dive off of the changing table when I bent down to pick up her milk. This was her 2nd black eye. Didn't get a pic of the first one. A daredevil, this one.

Big cheese even with a black eye

This girl loves to slide. The taller the better. Feet first, head first, backwards, sideways, doesn't matter.

These two are buds.

A brief moment of stillness...

Vroom, Vroom! Riding her truck.

Drinking and riding. Uh oh...
