Month in Review: Carolyn's sixteenth month

So this post is a little over a week late, but Carolyn is now 16 months old. We had some pretty significant milestones this month; here's a summary of all the new stuff.

  • A few weeks ago, she went on the potty for about 5 straight days twice a day. Since then we've had trouble getting her to go, but not really any trouble getting her to sit on the potty and try, so maybe it's a matter of timing.
  • She has started counting. While we can sometimes get her to count from two to ten, usually she'll just alternate between five and six. Not sure why those are her favorite numbers, but there you go.
  • She likes to yell "Push!" and "Pull!" and actually uses both of them in the correct context.
  • She likes to attack with tickles out of nowhere, saying "Deet deet deet!"
  • She gives big kisses, complete with "Mmmmmmmwah!" We got her a new Sandra Boynton book a little while ago - Snuggle Puppy, which she loves by the way - and built into the book are prompts for kisses, which Carolyn always delivers on.
  • She still begs to go outside every chance she gets, and especially likes playing basketball. Or more precisely she likes it when I hold her, run around, try to steal the ball from Mommy, and toss up air balls.
  • When we read certain books, Carolyn chimes in with the words (or at least her version of the words). And sometimes she'll even read entire books by herself.
