Dear London- 21 Months

Somehow another month has passed and you are so close to turning two! I started this blog as a way for both of us to remember our time together and document your milestones. So, today I'll take a step back from running-related stuff and write about you. 

If I could pick just one thing that's changed the last month it would be your vocabulary! Since you first started talking, you've always had lots of words, but your vocabulary has exploded lately! You repeat the alphabet when promoted along with a handful of new-to-you words. This week alone some of your new words include hashbrown, god (after an oh my god from mama- whoops!) and elephant. I love that you're getting better at using your words and communicating. It's made for way less tantrums and head banging!

You continue to be a great eater. You gobble up pretty much everything we put on your plate (and sometimes ours) and even ask for "more please." You still don't love veggies. A typical breakfast is 4 mini pancakes. A Greek yogurt (coconut), 4-5 strawberries or grapes and a handful of berries. Your new favourite is orange slices. You chug water like it's going out of style and will only ask for juice when we are out somewhere and given the option.

You are in size 3 clothes and size 5 diapers. You are wearing either 7.5 or 8 shoes.

You love to be outside, especially if it
involves water, slides or dump trucks. You also love to be around other children and that's why I know you're going to love daycare when you start next week!

You're sleeping is still the same as it always has been. You go to bed late and you wake up early. Most nights you sleep 9:30-6:30 and go down for a two hour nap around 12pm.

London, you continue to be the best part of my day! I love hearing you giggle, watch you play and getting to understand your language! You make me laugh so much! Sometimes you test my patience but you always say sorry (with a kiss) and cuddle up under my arm (grabbing on to whatever shirt I am wearing!) 

I love spending all my free time with you and watching as you grow big and strong. Thank you for making me a mama. 

I love you to the moon and back!

Love Mama
