Growing Sarah

Sarah is changing every day. I look at her and wonder where my baby went. This is a little toddler!!! I cannot believe how much she changes, seemingly daily.

She is walking like a pro now. She tries to run, which is hilarious. Her little body goes faster than her legs sometimes, and down she goes. It is especially funny to watch her run from Tim, as he is trying to "get her". She gets so excited, laughs so hard, and can barely move. I need to capture that on video, because it is so precious.

She likes to unpack and repack things. She loves stuffing things in places they may or may not go. We often find Little People in her ball popper, or Bluebeary in her tractor. She loves to pull all her toys out of her toybox and not actually play with any of them. Another favorite of hers is dropping anything and everything in the trash can. :(

Her vocabulary is flourishing. Over the past week or two, she has said (on occasion): Bible, Elmo, Nana, Book, Ball, What, and Uh-oh. She has mastered Mama, Dada, and Night Night. She jabbers all the time and tries to mimic what you say. This stage is so much fun!

Her current favorites:
Food: She likes it all! She seems especially fond of yogurt though, and you cannot eat a banana in front of her without sharing.
Toy: Bluebeary, of course! She loves her new Scout too though.
Book: Anything Sesame Street
Activity: Watching Elmo on the computer (we have to limit this, but she's so cute when she wants to watch it!!!)

Her current dislikes:
Food: Ha ha! She loves all food.
Toy: She does not like her baby doll. She doesn't dislike it, but you have to trick her into holding it. :)
Book: She doesn't dislike any, but she doesn't have much patience for long pages.
Activity: Sitting still! :) Sleeping!

Speaking of sleeping, the past two nights have been pretty awesome. She has slept from about 6:30 until 5:00 without waking up! This is a breakthrough! The down side: We cannot get her back to sleep at 5:00. I am willing to get up with her at 5, but yesterday she was CRANKY until her nap. Then again, her nap was 2 and a half hours long. Sleep is still a work in progress. I am just so happy that I have gotten 7-8 straight hours of sleep the past two nights!

Well, Sweetie wants attention. Hopefully she will take a long nap today so I can post some new pictures! :)
