Viente!

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!

She's adorable. My little girl is 4 and she still doesn't let me do much to her hair besides brush it. And time does fly even faster when you have a second child. It feels like just yesterday that my son was born and he is 14 months old!!! Time is so precious with our little ones:)

ok seriously that little bun in her hair is absolutely adorable! How is little Ivy already 20 months old and on her way to becoming a big sista! I remember ben discovering banana's too. I think at one point he was eating up to 5 a day! Oh and I think giving up naps early is in the genes! ( hope she'll keep her nap going till at least when new baby Lang comes!)

Our little boy is 20 months and I've got to say that the second year has been waaay funnier than the first! Toddlers are a blast! Ivy sounds like a cutie.
