19 months

Kate is nineteen months old today! We've really noticed a difference in her language in the past week or so, as far as putting words together and repeating what we say. It's a hoot. (I've been trying to get her to say "Hey nonny nonny.") She shows signs of understanding "big" and "little," though colors still seem to be largely eluding her.

While we were out walking I showed Kate a flower called a Lily--the same name as her tiger puppet--and now she keeps pointing at random flowers and saying "Lily!" She also thinks that any little bird now is a "dee-dee-dee." She's so observant and imitative, and she remembers things.

She is just getting cuter and cuter, Helena!

Very cool! She's getting so big.

Helena, you have entered the most fun toddler age yet. I love the language learning months. And cute, oh my gosh! She just gets cuter every time I see a picture of her. She is precious. Enjoy these next few months because in a blink, they will be over and she will be talking like a big girl.
