Today Ivy girl is exactly 20 months old. Were we not just singing Happy Birthday to her? I don't know how that happened. Anyway, here are some current 20 month facts about the gal: She has come around to letting me put pig-tails in her hair when she sees fit. She loves to pick out her own outfits and would wear polka dots every single day of her life if her wardrobe allowed. She loves to copy my face expressions (it's a good reminder that I need to tone it down when I look over to see her with her mouth and eyes wide-open). She'll usually follow that surprised face by grabbing her cheeks, gasping, and occasionally squeeling, "OmyGAAAWSH!!" Lately she's been trying to weasel out of nap times, which means she'll usually climb into my arms around 5:00 PM and conk out for a few minutes. She discovered her love for bananas. She gets on all fours to step up the teeniest tiniest of curbs and cracks in the road, she's very cautious that girl. She likes to climb in our bed during the day and pretend to snore. She is obsessed with silly bands, there are literally hundreds of them scattered around our house. She is still super sweet and wild and funny. She loves to step in the street with the most mischievous smile cause she knows she's being naughty. She loves watching home videos of herself, she likes smelling flowers, and she has become quite the Mamas girl if I don't say so myself. (I don't know why though, Geoff is way funner.) We love our little girlfriend, best 20 months ever!
