Every time someone asks me how old my kids are I give away the wrong date. Anna was 18 months forever and I just realized baby Iggy is 8 months and I kept saying 6.
Maybe it just freaks me out?
Anna Delilah 20 months (what?!?!)
You are amazing. Even when you annoy me (like when you refuse to talk despite knowing perfectly well what word you want me to hear you say) I admire your gumption.
You know a handful of words but you will not use them unless things get real and your signing isn't working for more than 5 minutes.
People love you for some reason.
I love you, but that's mostly because your my daughter and you think I'm the sun and amazing and all that, but you won't give anyone else the time of day.
Despite this people still buy you more clothes and toys than I know what to do with.
Food you Love:
capri suns, lunchables, broccoli, scrambled eggs with spam, peaches, apples, tomatoes, and goldfish crackers.
P.S I didn't buy you that processed junk. Nana did. She does things to spite me.
Stuff you love:
Water. Water. and water. With more water sprinkled on top. Seriously you're like a bee to honey with water and you get LIVID when I won't lower you into the nice water fountain at the mall. You're usually in a diaper all day because I get tired of all the clothes that pile up since you insist on getting in your pool 4 times a day.
Brushing your teeth. You live for brushing your teeth.
Drawing. You also like artist freedom to go with that sharpie you found, thank you very much.
Thinks you're becoming more tolerant to:
Baby Iggy. You even play bumper cars with him when he's in his walker. Baby Iggy doesn't like it very much but I think it's a step in the right direction. Lets get that friendship a'blooming already. You also pat him on the head and pull on his arms and feet.

We call you the "just love!" baby, because that's all you need. You've become a little more independent, but there's nothing you love more than mama standing up and holding you.
Things you tolerate:
The walker when it's outside, and the baby Einstein bouncer. You get some wind on that thing, but you won't tolerate it more than 20 minutes.
Things that scare you:
Anna. You'll be wailing away in your bouncer but once Anna walks by you freeze much like little dinosaurs did around a T-Rex in hopes that the lizard king wouldn't see them. It's kind of funny.
