At 19 months old, Kiki is in full toddler mode. The wonder in her eyes as she discovers newness around her are my favorite moments of the day. Less favorite, but still an important part of toddlerhood, are the tears and frustration and testing. Something new happens every day and I grasp at trying to remember all of these moments. I know they will blur together in months time.
Kiki's story this month was one of mental growth. Associations are being made and more words are popping up every day. Some of my favorites are: "I love you," "big truck, heavy," "more vegetables," "Daddy jumpy, Mommy jumpy," "toothpaste." Least favorite word: "No." (Note: these are all said in a very sweet, high-pitched voice and "accent")

This month Kiki visited an apple orchard, strolled to many neighborhood parks, read books galore, gave lots of hugs, played with friends (Crewe, Harlow, Leona, Sydney, Isabel, Makena, Liliana, Cam and Dylan), rode on a train, celebrated Halloween in jammies, created art with markers, crayons, stickers and paint, and was present at midterm voting with her mother.
What's up your sleeve for this next month, little lady?
