Lilypie Second Birthday tickers


20 Months Old

Our little girl is growing so big! She is 20 months old!!!
We have so many laughs when Tessa is around, she is hilarious. I don't have any idea what I did with my time before Tessa was here, she is my joy, love, and entertainment!
I did a little photo shoot today to capture my little girl!

Here is an update of what Tessa is doing at 20 months:
  • the largest milestone....Tessa has learned how to pee in the potty!!! It is sporadic at this point, but probably sometime this month we're gonna try panties and see what happens!!
  • saying more words (although most don't sound like the real word) she has a "Tessa" word for: Dora, backpack, map, night night, lovey, there, that, mama, dada, zayne, cow, chicken, crab, cat, pig, alligator, hot, boom, Hunter (her neighbor friend)
  • has "Tessa" signs for potty, drink, swimming, rub her back
  • she LOVES to dance, especially to Dora songs, Zac Brown Band, and Michael Jackson :)
  • her favorite shows are Dora and Backyardigans
  • favorite foods: all fruit, corn on cob, butter noodles, milk, shredded cheese, yogurt. Many have described her diet as a zero calorie diet :)
  • she naps for about 2-21/2 hours and sleeps 11 or 12 hours a night. She has started to go to bed around 8:45/9 and get up later like 8:15/8:30
  • very independent about everything, always wants a choice about things
  • we've started counting 1-2-3 to get her to listen and make a choice about behavior; which is working
  • her favorite activities: SWIMMING, cooking, playing babies, and dress up
  • she can swim with her swimmy float all on her own, jumps in from side, goes under, swims in circles

I guess that's all for now, we are just loving summer!!
