21 months

Kaia officially turned 21 months today. She is on her way to the "terrible two's" as they say. She is already showing me just how independent and frustrated she can get! She gets really frustrated when she can't tell me or show me what she wants. She is trying to repeat many different words and sounds to me but, still has a hard time mimicking us. I have been doing the "abc song" with her a lot lately and making phonetic sounds so she will grasp the sound or word.

She is still a tiny thing and to mama, really skinny. She barely has any fat on her body. She is still in size 3 diapers really, though they are getting snug. She loves it when I "sing" to her different things that I'm saying. She loves music and commercials with music in them. She loves outside but, can't take the heat like her mommy and daddy.

Kaia loves her baby dolls and gives them kisses and pats. She loves her cousins Zach, Lexi, and Jeremiah. She loves her big brother and always squeals with delight when she sees him. Kaia is becoming a people person now. She was never until this last month. She goes up to strangers as long as there is a kid nearby and wants to play. She loves going for an evening walk around the complex with mommy. She is very affectionate still and gives hugs and kisses willingly to us.

Kaia is growing so fast and it makes my heart swell. Only three more months and my baby girl will be two years old. Learning and growing more. Gaining more independence, if that's possible haha. I am so thankful that God brought her into our lives. She was meant for us. She fits into our family like a glove and is now shaping our forever....

We love you sunshine!

Sam is still quite small too. His size 3 diapers are still pretty roomy on him.
Is she eating well and a good variety of foods?

Love hearing the update on her growth and personality.

she definitely eats well...she was being picky for a month or two but, she is back to herself. She has always had a decent appetite. She just burns those calories

Hey Mel! Wow, Erik wears size 3 diapers and he just turned 1 last month! But Brooke was just like Kaia. Still is skinny for her age. She put on a pair of Erik's 12 month shorts the other day and wore them 1/2 the day before I noticed they didn't look like hers! No wonder, they were his!! And she'll be 3 yrs old in December and can still fit in 12 month size shorts. INSANE!
