This past Saturday Morgan Kate turned twenty months. Twenty months! It sounds so odd. It sounds so different. A sign that my baby is really no longer a baby. It seriously blows my mind that in just four months we will be celebrating her second birthday. Pardon me while I go cry in the corner!

At twenty months, our precious girl is:
-Usually sleeping 12+ hours at night. We put her to bed between 8 and 9 and she sleeps anywhere from 8 to 9:30. Yes, I realized I am spoiled. Travis says, "She gets it from her mama". I love to sleep! (Just as soon as I type this she will start waking up earlier.)
-Napping once a day, but her thirty minute naps have now become two hour naps.
-Drinking only from a cup during the day. Ahhh, at last!
-Still getting a nighttime bottle, but I have been tossing around some ideas to begin to "wean" her and me as well. I enjoy it just as much as she does!
-Walking everywhere and practically running
-Can identify her head, hair, eyes, ears, nose, teeth, sometimes her mouth, feet and hands
-Has been saying, "mama" over and over and over for the past three days, but still doesn't call me "mama"
-Trying to copy the things we do and say. We have to remember, little ears and little eyes.
-Has a total of nine teeth and cutting two molars
-Loves, loves, loves to play outdoors
-Loves to play on the slide
-Wearing size 12 month - 18 month clothes, depends on store and brand
-Wearing a size 3 diaper
-Loves giving hugs and kisses
-Can blow kisses, but is quite stingy
-Does this thing with her eyes where she blinks or winks for a long time, it's the cutest thing ever
-Trying to put her socks and shoes on (Never thought that would happen!)
-Loves playing in the dog water or any water for that matter
-Tries her best to play with Lola, but Lola won't have any part of it
-Loves to play with my hair
-New food interests are mandarin oranges, bbq chicken and corn on the cob

Wow, she's no longer a "teenager"! Karyssa loves the slide too! She cries when we take her away from it. Kyran also does that blinking thing. It's hard to describe in words just how cute it is!

Love the corn picture! It's just wonderful to see those little hands work so perfectly!

It's amazing how alike they are sometimes. I can't wait for the day when they finally get to meet and play together. Isn't she starting to look more like a kid and less like a baby? heartbreaker!

What a big girl. Both of mine LOVE mandarin oranges. They can devour a can in a matter of minutes.

She sounds like she is doing excellent. Keep up the good work!
