Elynn: Almost 21 months

I haven't kept up with Elynn's monthly updates like I wanted to, and it makes me sad! Here's to a new day though. I'm going to try to do better. 

She had to go to the doctor yesterday because she was behind on a couple of immunizations. She got 2 shots in her right arm. She complained all afternoon about it hurting. Bless her. She handled it better than I would have. She got 2 suckers for those 2 shots though, and shortly after that she chased them with an icee. 

She was in the 10th percentile in both weight and height. She weighed 23 pounds and was 31 inches long. 

She can say so many cute things!
She tells us "I tink" when she poops in her diaper. Reese has been working on potty training her. I'm not so concerned with it until she turns 2. We will kick it up at notch then. The beauty of a second baby is that you don't get all worked up about that stuff. I know full well it will all happen when it happens, and there is no need to rush it.

If we ask her to do something like put on her "jamas" she says "I don't want to!" She loves her Sissy, but she is also very likely to bite her, pull her hair, and pinch her. There are times that I can't blame her for those actions. It's her only defense.

We all lay down in Reese's bed where we leave the girls after they go to sleep. Usually within a few hours Elynn is crying for us. So she gets in our bed, and depending on the night, Reese may or may not make it in her bed all night.

She wears 12-18 month clothes and size 4 shoes and diapers. Over the past few months as her hair has grown it has turned out very curly. Everywhere we go people comment on her curly hair. Reese asked me this weekend "do I have a curly head like Elynn?"

Elynn loves all babies and trys to manhandle them the way Reese does her. Pate (Addie's little brother), commonly referred to as Pete, is her favorite little project. She is determined that he will mind her and take a paci and a bottle when she tells him to.

She also loves "Me Mouse" (Minnie Mouse) which will be her party theme this year!
