20 Months

We're back! And we have pigtails! We took a little bloggy break while we went to visit friends and family in NM last week. It was a fun trip and I'll have more to share on that that later.

Kennedy is 20 months! Wow. It sounds so old, and I swear, overnight she turned into a little kid. Maybe its the pigtails and pink Adidas trainers that make her look so much older. This means in just four months she is going to be 2. Eek. Can't believe how fast this year has gone by. I may or may not still have a few party favors from her 1st birthday on the fridge...still.

At 20 months she is a non-stop ball of energy. Its go-go-go from the moment she wakes up until the time she finally goes to bed (plus a little nappy in the afternoon). She loves to be outside where she can run, jump and kick a soccer ball. She loves to dance, sing and play her drums. And she really loves to color. I can't even let her see a crayon unless I am planning to sit and color with her.

She has been eating pretty much any and everything she can lately. Breakfast and lunch have always been easy, but dinner has been a bit of a challenge until recently. Dinner has been made much easier with the introduction of dipping sauces. She would literally eat a dry sponge if it was dipped in ranch. Favorite dips include: ranch, red pepper hummus, teriyaki, ketchup, cream of chicken soup, guac and salsa.

She is still a great little communicator (ok, chatterbox) and can much tell me (sometimes in sentences!) what she wants or needs. She tries to mimic everything we say, which can be hilarious when she says things out of the blue like oh snap, how perfect and totally. It can also be dangerous...so mommy and daddy need to really watch their language around the little one.

One of my favorite things she does right now is talking to her imaginary lion in the backyard. It started a couple weeks ago and now she walks around saying c'mon lion and runs as if he is chasing her. Its hilarious. She likes to pretend she is an animal (doggie, rabbit, frog, elephant, etc) and loves to pretend she is the eating food pictured in magazines. She gets very serious and quiet when she needs to feed her baby a bottle. I can tell we are entering a really fun stage of pretend play.
