How can a 20 month old seem so old?!

Allikaye is now 20 months old...
she is definitely not a baby...
but a full-fledged toddler!
It amazes us how much she learns everyday...
and how quickly it is all happening!
Here are a few things that are standing out to me
as I reflect upon Allikaye at 20 months old:

She will repeat ANY word we say...
She asks so many questions..."mom, was that?"
She can pick up any sign we introduce to her...and keep using it!
She remembers songs and can sing them with us...
She is not a big eater...at all...I am working on this!
She loves to walk on ledges, holding our hand,
while saying her ABC's...
She loves "calling" grandmama and papa on the phone....
She loves to include everyone in every activity...
"dada too!" "mama too!" "Tre too!" (yep, even the dog)...
She loves to laugh while covering her mouth...
similar to her mama...
She loves to have full conversations...
even if you can only understand about 60% of what she says...
She loves animals...she has asked to "watch meerkats, mom"
and wants to go outside to look for snakes and rabbits...
She has peed in her potty twice...look close, it's in there!!She loves to pray...
She will close her eyes and repeat what we are praying...
We really love when we say..."in Jesus Name, Amen."
And she says, "sus name, Amen!"
Okay...I'll try to wrap it up, I feel like I can just keep going!!
Finally...she loves to count to ten!
I was so excited when she started counting all on her own -
1-10!
She almost has her ABCs...
Okay...one more thing...
now that she knows her counting...
this is what she said the other day...
"Mom...high five...six...seven!"

Oh, thank you Lord for my girl!!

Hi there!
I found your blog through Kelly's. I am new to the blogging world. I wanted to let you know what a cutie you have! It must be so much fun to watch them grow! I have 8 month old twins and I am so looking forward to hearing them make their first sounds! I love how she prays too. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. :)

My 28 month old has yet to even achieve that.

I found your blog tonight and I think it is so cute! Your baby is adorable... and they do grow up so fast. I have a 3 yr old and a 16 month old and it has been the fastest 3 years of my life!
