16 months

Breezy Brie,

You are on the cusp of your 16 month birthday. You are the most amazing little girl. I can’t get enough of you. So here are some fun facts:


Size 24-2T, Size 5 shoes ; ) You are on the biggest setting for your diapers. Speaking of clothes you are trying to “dress” yourself these days. As well as “undress” yourself. If you have on the velcro diapers (as opposed to the snaps) and nothing over top, there is a good chance we will find you prancing around naked. Good thing I love you cute baby butt!


You are talking like crazy. It so cute, right now when someone ask what you are doing you are likely to respond with “play-ing”. You mimic most words when asked however you don’t like to perform “party tricks” by this I mean you usually won’t say something when I ask you to in order to show off how sticking cute/smart/adorable you are. Go figure! You also say “ewww” a lot. It’s so cute. Oh and you recently started to say “three” after we count one, two….


You are very into your little babies right now. You wrap them up in wash cloths and walk around the house playing with them. Only to at some point throw or chew on them but it’s still really cute.


You are extremely active. You could go all day long without stopping and even when you’re sitting it’s not for long. You are still taking a decent nap..Thank God! You dance, CLIMB, jump, dance some more, climb on EVERYTHING and run all over. I’m pretty sure we will have some er visit before long with your fearless climbing adventures.


You eat almost everything. The list of what yo don’t eat is pretty limited. You really don’t love salad which we discovered last night. You recently tried artichoke hearts and loved them…pretty rare for a toddler. You love your “coookiez”.

Potty Learning:

We are trying to regularly practice our potty routine. You have successfully used the potty twice!!!!! When I have to go we go together. I think we are getting close but I will wait for you to show me that you are ready.


We are getting some routines down. Brushing your teeth in the morning and at night. You know exactly what to do and love it, that is until I “rebrush” your teeth to make sure they are clean. I think you mostly enjoy just playing in the water but hey you are a toddler.

Mommy’s Helper:

You help mommy unload/ load the dishes, put laundry in the dryer, fold (mostly unfold) laundry, wash dishes (play in the water), feed the doggies, feed the turtle…your a pretty amazing kid!


Recently you haven’t been as “kissy”, I knew it was a stage but gosh I miss all your random kisses. You still are very lovable. ON a sad note we discovered that you are allergic to fire ants and almost had an anaphylactic shock because of a bite on your toe. I will post a separate blog about this horrible incident. Nonetheless, I’ve been looking into bubble balls for you to live in : )

Brielle, I love you so much, no words could ever really express the love I have for you. The other day I was thinking about how one day you will have to go out and live your life and I won’t be there everyday and it made me really sad. Sad for myself. You are part of me. We are connected, very much like an invisible umbilical cord. The thing is I need you as much as you need me. But I know one day that will change and you won’t need me as much. I will still need you. However, I pray everyday that your father and I can raise you to be a Godly, smart, wonderful person and that you may be blessed with a happy, healthy, prosperous, long life. So for now I will keep enjoying every second I have with you.
