21-Month Diva

There are really two main things to describe this month.

1. Do a Deer
2. CHATTY!

Sound of Music
I can't tell you the number of times we've watched songs from the Sound of Music. Notice I say songs because little miss Bossy Pants tells us which song to skip to so she can sing along. She sings these songs over and over all day long. Any time I pick up my phone, she says "Do Deer" or anytime we go upstairs, she picks up the remote and says "Do Deer, So Long Awell (So Long, Farewall), Puppets". Obsessed. That's it.

Talky Talky
Quinn doesn't stop talking. Ever. She wakes up talking and goes to sleep talking. She asks a lot of questions and repeats things. A lot. People are always telling me she talks a lot for her age so I guess she's talking early, but my goodness the girl doesn't stop.  I guess I shouldn't complain since I love being able to have little conversations with her. I love it when I talk to her and I can see the little wheels turning in her head. She has a really good memory so she will bring things up out of the blue. It confuses Jeremy sometimes, but I usually pick up on things since I'm with her all the time now. Sweet, smart, chatty little girl! Some of our favorite things she says right now are:

-Mama/Daddy seenic (for Mama sing it.)
-No don't you. (for Don't want to.)
-Breasfas (Breakfast.)
-Oh Places Ago (the book Oh the Places You'll Go)
-So pitty. (So pretty. Everything/everyone is so pretty.)
-Siwwy ___. (Everyone/thing is silly. Silly Ella, silly Mama, silly trash truck, silly Elmo, silly boy, etc.)
-Oh Dee Eyes (Edelweiss from the Sound of Music.)

Here, she was saying "Quinn hair so pitty."

One last thing before the multitude of pics.

Sweet Spirit
We've noticed Q has such a sweet spirit. I hope she is always like this. She's very concerned that she is going to do something to make people sad. This doesn't apply to Ella apparently because poor Ella is still tortured by Quinn on a daily basis. :) When we are going to see someone (like family or friends), we always tell her to give them a hug and a kiss. So, when we get in the car, she says "[Insert name] hug, kiss, so sad." She knows if they don't get a hug and kiss, they'll be sad. She also doesn't like it when Mama and Daddy get sad. She's been going in some time outs and she'll sit there and talk the entire time and say "Daddy so sad. Sorry Daddy. Hug, kiss, sorry." How do you keep her there!!? I love that sweet, kind, empathetic spirit. I pray it stays that way her whole life!

Poor Ella had no idea what Quinn would do to her simple dog life. 

Here are some fun pics to wrap up the month!

A fun Sunday for everyone. We didn't even try to put her clothes on to go to my Mom's. No nap that day. Yes, it was that bad.

She's been figuring out how to drag things up and down the stairs. Very determined.

Ok I tried posting earlier, but I don't think it worked. I was saying that her expressions are amazing!!! And, she seems so much older than a 21-month-old baby! I'd guess she was 3 based off of her vocabulary and development! Crazy! She's so so cute.
