20 Months

Ellington, you turned 20 months old about a week and a half ago. When June 2nd rolled around and I realized you were 20 months old and that meant there are only FOUR MORE MONTHS until you turn TWO I just couldn't believe it!!! My baby is growing so quickly! So, what are you up to at 20 months old?
  • You wear size 24 months or 2T and a size 4 diaper
  • You LOVE fruit right now.  You recently started eating (and DEVOURING!) strawberries and watermelon.  You also love bananas, apples, mandarin oranges, and pineapple.  We give you lots of fruit during the day since you refuse most vegetables.
  • You ask to watch "Mick Mouse" (Mickey Mouse), but stop watching after about two minutes
  • You repeat EVERYTHING we say
  • You have started making a new scrunched up face that is precious
  • You are loving getting in your little swimming pool and you say "swim diaper" because you want to put one on to go swimming. :)
  • You know where we are going based on the route we are driving.  It's CRAZY.  You also know exactly where we are if we pull into a parking lot you've been to before.  
  • You say "bounce balls" when we tell you we are going to church and say "bounce balls" when we pick you up and asked you what you did at church.  I guess they have fun balls to play with!
  • You say the names of your little friends
  • You love lining up your toys in rows
  • You are obsessed with purses right now.  You love carrying them around the house and you comment on other lady's purses when we are out in public.
  • You get upset if there is a speck of anything on the floor, counters, table, highchair, etc.  You are definitely a neat freak! :)
  • You are SO interested in the alphabet right now.  You have recently correctly identified: A, O, Z, and L

Your Daddy and I cannot believe how fast our baby is growing up!  You definitely are a little girl now and not our tiny baby.  We love you to pieces and really cherish every moment and new thing you do.  You continue to AMAZE us every single day!


  1. We have that same dress...and the same pink bunny. SA is napping with it as we speak. Her name is Sarah. I know. Really original, right?

  2. Aww, pretty, pretty E! I love it when they start repeating everything. It's amazing what entertainment it brings! Happy 20 months!
