Emma James, you are 17 months old! You are quickly shedding any babyness that you had left and are becoming a full blown toddler. Your personality is so precious and you make me laugh every single day.
You are starting to love books. For several months you would only sit and listen to 1 specific book. But now you will sit and listen to us read several books. You're also still so cuddly. I love it because you're so busy most of the time.
You still LOVE to be outside. Specifically, outside collecting sticks and bark and trying to eat them. Hence the dirt on your face. :) You and Hudson play so well together. You like to throw the balls for Oliver (even though they don't go very far) and get so tickled watching him run to get them.
You seem to be teething again which means you're getting your paci more than you should. I hate this but you are SO DANG FUSSY when you're teething. It's just not a battle I'm willing to fight right now. Once that tooth pops in, the pacis go back in the crib.
You've gotten a lot better about going to the nursery at church and the gym. You used to cry and get so upset but now you rarely cry. I wouldn't say you're excited about going but it's a step in the right direction!
You are sleeping so great at night. You go to bed around 7 or 7:30 and sleep until about 7ish in the morning. You and Hudson go down for naps at 1:00 and you will sleep for 2-3 hours. Your favorite food is still blueberries. You would eat a pint in one sitting if I'd let you. Ha!
You are such a happy little girl and I can't believe you are getting so close to being 1 1/2. We love you so much and are so proud of the sweet toddler you are becoming.
