19 Months Old

by Mollie
Natalie Paige
at 19 months
  • About 22.5 pounds and 33 inches (at her 18 month checkup). Tall and skinny!
  • My favorite word that she says now: “Happy!”
  • She’s all around a playful kid!  I can’t figure out if she is an introvert or an extrovert.
  • She loves to pick her outfits.  She will also compliment other people on their clothes, or hair (“oooh… preetty!”) or fish for compliments by showing people her own clothes.
  • She is a stargazer.  She loves to look at the “moom” (moon) and “ky” (sky) at night.  One night she was devastated because it was too cloudy to see the moon.  Fortunately our neighbors up the hill have a round window that looks like the moon… we let her believe that was it.
  • She loves to watch “shoooo” (shows) that we have recorded for her, Little Einsteins and Backyardigans.  We try to limit but they come in really handy if mommy isn’t feeling well…
  • She loves to play dress-up now, apparently.  She got a hand-me-down fairy princess costume from her cousin and asks to wear it daily!
  • Despite her petite size she is a great little eater, not picky at all.  All day long she asks for “nom nom nommy”s (snacks).
  • She still has amazing curly hair… still never been cut! (If I had a boy with hair like this, I’d let it stay curly, too.)
  • She doesn’t have a clue about the baby in my tummy, but she is very sweet and gentle with animals, other kids, baby dolls, stuffed animals… I think she will be a natural big sister and am not worried about it at all.
  • She loves to sing songs with hand motions… you know… Itsy Bitsy Spider, Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes, Patty Cake. I have to be careful when I bring it up or she will ask for me to sing them all day.
  • She is sooo much fun!

    What wonderful pictures again! Thanks so much, Mollie, we like your discriptions that tell us about her, too. Hope you’re feeling better now. I pray for the “mommies and babies” often. We’re sure proud of Natalie and the care that you two are giving her!
