19 Months:

My big girl is now 19 months old! We've had a pretty busy month this month. :) We celebrated THREE birthdays! We took several fun day trips! And we had a ton of fun playing outside and inside when it wasn't storming! She is currently in size 6 shoes, and 18 month clothes, and 18/24 month pajamas. She weighs 20 lbs. 6 oz. and is 32.5 inches tall!

She started sorting/organizing her blocks by both shape and color.

We attended a friend of ours, Wyatt's first birthday!

We took another trip to Seaworld!

Sophia also started taking a 2 year old tumbling class. We tested her out for the first class for free since she was only 18 months and the class was 2 year olds, I wasn't sure how well she would do, or if she would behave. I took her in for her first class, and she didn't even bat an eye. When we got called back in at the end to watch what they had learned, she was the only one who followed directions at the end. :) 

The next week, she did equally as well! I'm so proud of her! And she loves the other little girls that are in her class and makes sure to say bye bye to them before we leave. 


We took a day trip to Jungle Adventure, and got to feed bears, peacocks, monkeys, lemurs, and deer. She also got to hold a baby alligator (like actually hold one!) and touched two snakes! And she got to watch an alligator feeding and take a short boat ride.

Afterwards we headed down the road just a little to Fort Christmas, where we played on their playground for a little while and just ran off some steam.

We also celebrated Papa's 49th birthday!

I am so incredibly proud of Sophia. Chances are that it's totally normal and every other kid was doing it at this age too, but regardless, I am super proud of her. For weeks now, she's been using the app "candy count" and has been sorting by color. I ended up buying the full version which adds more colors. She does all of the colors without help, and counts all of them without help. She also knows how to use the Ipad completely on her own, from unlocking it, to finding her two folders, to finding each app and playing them. 


One morning I decided to take it a step further and added a few others that I found. One that I found and absolutely love, (which just helped me see just how much she can do on her own already) is "sorting 1". There are three levels that it has that are free. The first is colors, much like in "candy count", but there is also one that sorts multiple shapes (which she did on her first try without any help) and another (which I thought would be much harder and take a while for her to learn) that shows big and small clothes and you have to figure out which size belongs on the daddy koala and which one belongs on the child koala. She had a little trouble her first time, but by her second time, she had them all correct. My daughter now can sort by color, shape, and size. I am so freaking proud of her! And she knows sooo many animals and insects, which is awesome! And she did all of the "where's puppy's?" in the first try too for both the puppy and the kitty!

We attended a friend of ours, Mya's 2nd birthday!

Sophia has also gained a serious obsession with lizards. They are all named "Bob" and she wants to hold them all. We finally let her try, and now she wants to hold every single one that she sees.
