17 Months!

Yikes! My big girl is 17 months going on 20! She's got so much sass, it's crazy!
This month we celebrated Daddy's second Father's Day, did a day at the pool with Aunt Carrie, and went to Seaworld! We did lots of arts and crafts, playing outside (in between nasty storms) and learning new tricks!


(Someone broke into mommy's spare yarn stash)

I don't have her current height and weight* but I imagine that she has finally passed 21 lbs. and will hopefully be able to get her weight one of these days. *Edit: I bought a digital scale so that we can stop having to use my in laws' whenever we're there, and she weighs 20.5 lbs. She still fits into her size 5 sandles, but her size 5 tennis shoes are starting to get a little bit snug. She can wear a pair of 5.5 tennis shoes that one of my friends gave her. She has outgrown most of her 18 month footy pajamas and now wears mostly footless. Her tummy is still tiny though and still fits the 12 months pants/shorts. And she has 11 teeth!

Sophia throws her baby doll towards daddy and steps back
Daddy: Did you just sacrifice your baby to the bull?
Sophia (matter of factly): Yep!

She'd spent two weeks consistently letting me know when she needed a new diaper, and would grab her diaper to show me and then go stand by the bedroom door (where we change her at) and wait for me to come change her diaper. So after two weeks of that, I decided that maybe this was her way of telling me that she wants to potty train (which I didn't expect to start doing until around 2 years). So we bought a potty and on the morning of the 24th, I woke up and asked her if she wanted to try to go potty, and she said yes. I asked if she was done trying, and she shook her head no, so I told her I'd be right back and was going to get her diaper ready in the next room. I walked into the room and heard the toilet play music! She'd peed! Then I passed her wipe and she wiped! Then we went out to the living room and she nursed for a bit. After she finished nursing, I asked if she wanted to try again, and she said yes, and she peed AGAIN! Woo Hoo!!! My baby is so freaking amazing and smart! I just can't believe it! 



For Father's Day, Sophia and I went to Clay Z in Merritt Island, and she painted him a pretty coffee cup all by herself! She was so excited and had so much fun! We also got him a Seaworld funpass so that he could come with us next time!

We took a trip to Seaworld, this time with Daddy! Auntie, Dustin, and Mary came along too! It was a lot of fun! Sophia went on her first ride to see the penguins!

(Drinking from her big girl cup)

 We also got to go swimming at the YMCA around the corner with Aunt Carrie! It took a little time to warm her up to it because the water splashes are loud and a little hard but she ended up loving it and not wanting to leave (despite the nasty storm coming in).


She also really learned to do some tumbling!
Doing some of her favorite tumbles...somersaults!

And she loves to sing! Her favorite song is Fall Out Boy's "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark"
My little future pop star!
