Twenty-three

Dear Alice,
You are now 23 months old!

You're talking like crazy, adding new words all the time.
"Guacamole" is my favorite word you say.
You're also speaking in sentences like,
"I don't see it."
and
"Alice have a biiiiiig poop."


You're still a really great eater.
Last night you had a bunch of brussels sprouts.
Makes me so proud!
(Brussels sprouts are my favorite.)


You love when we quiz you on things like,
"Are banana's purple?" and
"Do cats say meow?"
You answer with "Yes!" or "Noooooo". 

(With Cow, your favorite toy.)

You're also recalling details from stories.
I ask you lots of questions while changing your diaper.
It's a good distraction. :)
When talking about "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", 
I'll ask you things like, 
"What does the mouse drink?" or
"Does the mouse ride in an airplane?"
You always give the correct answer.

(This is your sad face.)

Another recent discovery is that you know who is a boy and who is a girl.
Mama, Daddy, Nana, Zion, Hudson, Abby, Iris, Grandpa, etc. 
You almost always answer correctly.
The little babies are a little trickier for you. 

(Showing me your teeth.)

When I ask you,
"Who made you so cute/sweet/smart/funny?"
you answer with, 
"God!"
I love it.


Okay, I could go on and on about the fun things you're doing.
I'll save some for your 2 year old letter next month.
Next month!?
Crazy!

I love you, my sweet baby girl. 

Love, Your Mama

I can't believe our girlies are going to be two next month. It is just absurd. Alice is adorable as always.

Ryann also recently began distinguishing between boys and girls. It is seriously one of her favorite games. She always says "Mommy ask me more people. Ask me more people!" So cute.

Happy 23 months Alice!
