Twenty-Five Months

Dear Peeper:
Today are you Two days ago you were twenty-five months old. Here I was feeling all guilty about being a day late with your panda picture, and I completely forgot that I was supposed to be writing a letter, too. Maybe I was sicker than I realized!

So, what's happened in the past month?

You are talking more and more and more every day. Still one word at a time (with about three or four exceptions) but you say tons more one-words than a month ago, and repeat the last word of just about everything we say.

Oh, I know this doesn't count as "two words" although it technically is, but the most exciting thing you're saying these days is "Love you!"

Actually, it's more like, "duh SHEW!"

And it's just the coolest thing ever.

As I've already talked about, you've been getting crafty on occassion, and I'm hoping to do a few more projects for Christmas.

You love to color, and just this week, you've started coloring in books.

Not coloring books. Regular books.

You know you're not supposed to though, because while you do it, you're saying, "No, no, no" all cheerful-like. Well, I guess that's a start.

And today, you produced your first mural. We're so proud. As will be the Magic Eraser people.

Speaking of Christmas (as I was a little while ago) you are already totally into it. I can't wait to see you when we put up the tree, and go see Santa, and all the other fun stuff we've got planned.

You've learned more letters and you're all about the numbers. You can identify (name and point out) the numerals zero ("oh") through nine, and sometimes ten, and with some help you can count to ten, and occassionally fill in some numbers between ten and twenty.

Except for seven. You don't like seven. You skip it when counting, and when you gather all your magnet numerals, you always leave it behind.

But you get the "K." You know it's called "kay" and you know that AuntieK's name starts with it (and, sometimes, you know that Mommy's real name starts with it - but if I ask what her real name is, you usually tell me mine, which does not start with K) and we've never, ever counted to K, but you always want to put it with the numbers. Not sure why.

Oh, and you have a new tooth! It's the bottom left second molar. It showed up about a week or so ago and seems to be about all the way in. No real signs yet of the other three, but I hope they're all in before your next dental checkup in February, so we can go ahead and get them all sealed while we're at it.

Well, kiddo, I guess Mama better go get dressed so we can get to Target and buy a Magic Eraser.

I love you, my little Pint-Sized Picasso.



  1. I was wondering if you had decided to start pacing the monthly letters farther apart now that she is two. Glad that's not the case. :)

    Oh, and she wants to get the K to tell you how much she is missing Auntie Kay. ;)

  2. Nope, just completely oblivious of the date!


What say you?
