Happy 19th Month Elias!

by jessicaturner on February 12, 2010

Dear Elias, 
Today you are 19-months-old! I can’t believe it. Here is what you are currently doing and into:
  • Your favorite toys are balls, your blocks, your  Noah’s Ark, your drum and your books.
  • We read at least 10 books a day to you. Your favorites are anything by Sandra Boynton and The Monster at the End of This Book, which was one of Mommy’s favorites too.
  • You still prefer milk in a bottle in the morning and at night, but you take a sippy cup during the day. Mommy tried hiding the bottles, but you cried and cried, so she gave in.
  • You love your school and go running into your classroom every day. 
  • The girls in your class love you. The come running up to you every day waving hi and kissing you – especially Jillian and Mary Martha.
  • You love to color with crayons and markers, as well as paint.
  • You are wearing 18 month clothing and Mommy is a little worried that all that 2T clothing she bought for summer isn’t going to fit you. 
  • You love bath time – especially splashing and playing with your foam letters. 
  • You love crawling into bed with Daddy every morning.
  • You love Daddy’s computer and our iphones. You have become quite skilled at playing with your apps, especially I Hear Ewe. 
  • Mommy calls you Peanut, Guppy and Little Bug. Daddy calls you Bud and Buddy. 
  • When you are done eating, you pull off your bib- or try to.
  • You have really taken to signing. These are the signs you do most often: eat, milk, all done, baby, cereal, monkey, giraffe, elephant, more, shoes, bath, hat, flower, sun, duck, bear
  • You are also talking more. Some of your words include: Daddy (your favorite word), Mommy, Mama, Nana, Ti (for Auntie), cheese, hi, bye, no, uh-oh (your second favorite word), dog, duck and sock
  • You love to brush your teeth. After Mommy brushes your teeth, you always want to do it for another minute or two. 
  • You generally eat what we eat. Your favorite foods are all dairy – milk, cheeese and yogurt. You also love pasta, rice, turkey, chicken and broccoli.
  • You love music.
  • You clasp your hands together to pray before meals. 
  • You generally sleep from 8 pm – 6 am. 
  • You have to sleep with at least three stuffed animals.
  • Sometimes when you don’t listen repeatedly, we will put you in a one-minute time out, where you will sit on the bench in the hallway and we will talk with you and give you a hug. 
  • You are our biggest joy. We love you more than we could ever have imagined.
