21 Months

Dear Julia,

It has been a while since I've written a monthly letter. Life has been busy (but fun) and it has fallen by the wayside. But each and every day you do something that makes me think, "I've got to tell the blog about this" (mostly so I don't forget it!)

You're rapidly approaching two, and the baby seems to be all gone. You're a big girl now, and I'm so proud of you. Your vocabulary is impressive- favorite words are FAST! my turn, and I did it! And you do so much- you feed yourself, initiate great games with Daddy and with me, dance, sing, and run (FAST!). You're also on the verge of potty training, which is exciting and sad to me all at the same time. How can you be big enough to take care of this function all by yourself?

While I'm not writing details as often as I used to, you wow me every day. I love you, Julia!

Love,
Mommy

One year ago today....

(Picture from August 6, 2011) The more things change, the more they stay the same! Also, ten years ago today Daddy and I had our first date. Yikes, we're getting old!

Oh my!

Somebody made her first poo poo in the potty tonight. For a whole host of reasons, there is no photo of this event.

Julia's favorite videos

Julia is a sesame street/elmo/muppets fiend. I thought we'd share the catchy tunes that have infected our brains. Here are some of her favorite videos:

Julia asks for "Me Me Me" when she wants this one:












Julia likes this one, but it drives Mommy nuts (and not in a good way):








Crazy dress up day at school!
