Sarah's months 16-current

Yes I have been a horrible blogger. :) I hope to be posting more frequently and currently. Here is catch up on Sarah's 16th month-now. She is 19 months! A lot has changed of course. 

1. Her stats:
-Her head is in the 80th percentile. Lots of brains in there, but it makes it hard to fit shirts over her heed! ;)
-She is 34 inches (95%). Where this comes from??
-Her weight is 25lbs 12oz (70%). She is well fed which we're happy about. This girl can eat! And luckily she's not too picky about what she eats so it's usually pretty healthy stuff. Almost no juice and hardly any snacks or sweets.

2. Development: If you're interested-Pardon the long list, it's been a while!
Sarah has the sweetest disposition. We can't take credit, but we feel like we lucked out. Yes, she has her tantrums and fussiness, but overall Sarah is happy and a clam! She is walking/running but still tumbles quite a bit. She is learning to step up and down stairs. She's learning to throw and kick balls. She loves her shape toys. Loves to be read to and has started reading her own books. She'll fill in words for us. She's eating all by herself now. Loves coloring with crayons. Repeats most words we say. Probably has a vocabulary of 100+ words. Knows all her shapes and learning colors. Has started singing songs (parts of songs) on her own like- Happy Birthday, Twinkle Twinkle, Ba Ba Black Sheep, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, Old MacDonald, and ABC's. Can point to a lot of body parts including her heart and boobies (which Ed regretfully taught her) ;). She sleep from 7pm- 7:30am. Naps once a day at most for 1.5 hours. Not long enough!:) Around 18 months she pooped a little on her new little potty, but since then has not been interested. No rush. I think she's getting her last teeth? For a complete total of 16 until she gets her 2 year molars? As you can see from pics, her hair is curly and getting quite long. I also noticed the decrease in pictures we've taken. The ones I have show her in jammies with scraggly hair. :) Gotta get on that! Times goes to quick! 

^Like most at her age, Sarah LOVES to wear our shoes. She does pretty good in my heels.
^These require some help to get into, but daddy's shoes are just as fun!
These pictures are of Sarah's first day in nursery. She LOVES it! During sacrament meeting she asks for nursery and after church repeats, "ball", "bubbles" and "snacks". She had no problem switching over. Learning to share, but does pretty well.

Sarah is such a joy in our lives! She'll be excited to have a little brother playmate since she can't seem to get enough attention. She loves company and is such a ham. She'll stare at people at the store until they look at her. 
It's hard to imagine that we'll be able to look at another child with as much admiration and love, but I've been told our love will multiply.
