Little B: 22 Months

22_Month-1

So over this monthly photo project…two months to go!

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to stop counting B’s age in months—our little girl will be 2 years old at the end of the summer!

Here’s what she has been up to this month:

Personality

The typical toddler mood swings continue. Sometimes, she’s so sweet and adorable that I want to eat her up. Other times, she is so disagreeable that I want to lock myself in the bathroom and never come out again. This is probably not going to go down in the books as my favorite age.

Milestones

Spending a rainy morning playing at the Please Touch Museum

She cut one of her last remaining teeth (bottom incisor) so now she has a full set of pearly whites when she flashes a smile. I think she is still working on those two year molars, but she won’t open her mouth to let me see.  She can recognize a fair number of colors, letters and objects in picture books. Also, while she is far from being potty trained, she has used the potty a few times.

Favorite things

Still a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh as well as some of the Nickelodeon shows like Dora and Team Umizoomi; balloons; playing in the park; her Tigger toothbrush; the letter B—she loves when hold her hand to help her write it and it’s one of the letters that she always picks out in her activity books. She must know it stands for Bridget!

Favorite books

At the moment, anything Olivia and Paddington.

Eating

Still loving her meatballs. Other favorites include any kind of long pasta (it’s seriously adorable to watch her eat linguine by the strand); cheese by the slice; waffles and pancakes, especially the kind that Granny makes that are filled with veggies, fruit and yogurt.

Fun experiences

We have been soaking up summer with plenty of outdoor adventures. She attended her first Drexel alumni event at the Zoo in June.

Half of the job of someone who works in alumni relations is to hold the event signage, so I’m training her well already!

We took Daddy out to a Father’s Day brunch at Village Whiskey, one of his favorite places to get a burger.

And, she (reluctantly) put on a Blackhawks jersey to cheer the team on as they won the Stanley Cup.

At the end of June, the Tall Ships Festival was at Penn’s Landing, so we went to check that out. B could have cared less about the ships and ended up falling asleep. Luckily, she woke up in time to pose with one of the gigantic rubber duckies. It was not a good scene when we had to leave. I literally had to peel her off of the thing and she sobbed during the entire walk back to the car.

Looking forward to more fun times ahead for the rest of the summer!
