19 months

 Here's is our goofy 19 month old. Silly, happy, and apparently ticklish. She even likes to tickle herself when we aren't available going, "tickle, tickle."
Headed full steam ahead to age 2, she is talking up a storm and turning more and more into a little person   instead of a baby. She hasn't met a stranger yet and loves to chat it up with new people. Her tiny little wave is about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Who wouldn't want to talk to her with social skills like that?
She has become a ridiculous climber. Climbing our stove, the baby gate, the high chair. All to give her mother a heart attack. She's eating a lot more but is still fickle most days. Until I get myself some food and of course she wants it. I think she is pretty much addicted to cheerios and could eat them all day. She is a fruit lover, but a veggie hater. Hopefully I can convince her by Christmas that veggies aren't poison. Things to hope for. 
 She loves to read books, and affectionately calls them "b's." She definitely gets stuck on her favorite books and you can't convince her to read anything else. Last week she brought me The Pottery Barn Kids catalog and was determined for me to read it to her.
 She's has really picked up on that everyone has a name. She can say more than a few names now and lovingly says, "Hey Mimi," to our dog. They have become better friends this month. That is when Emerson isn't attempting to hit her. But, having a snack cup always encourages Mia to stick around.  She also has started saying amen at the end of prayers. Emerson also loves to imitate animals. She is definitely an animal lover!

 Another thing Emerson loves is babies! She talks about them all day and can spot them across the room.  It's like Christmas to her when she finds one. I recently put up a new picture of her in the hallway and she is beyond excited to have a picture of a baby in our house. 

 I'm really glad she loves babies. 
 Seeing as she might be seeing one on a regular basis pretty soon.

She's going to be a big sister!
