Jordyn - 21 Months

Another month has flown by, and Jordyn is now 21 months old!!!

What is Jordyn up to?

Jordyn ...

... weighs about 27 1/2 pounds.

... still wears size 4 diapers.

... wears mostly 24 month clothing. (still some 18-month though a few 2T).

... still loves shoes and wears some size 6, size 7, and size 8. (Yes, she has lots of shoes - shoe stores are awful to take her into because she goes nuts! She has her shoes off the second we get in the store, because she thinks she gets to try shoes on.)

... talks constantly. She says practically every word we do, and she is working on saying 3 and 4 word phrases! Her "s" sounds are still somewhat difficult for her, but we're hearing the "sss" sound a little bit more now! However, we love how she says some of her words right now - here's just a couple - she says nack for snack and peeya for pizza.

... knows every single animal that she sees in a book and will either say its name or the sound it makes. (The funniest one right now is the camel - she sticks her tongue out and kind of spits - Thanks, Uncle BJ for teaching her that!)

... loves to be with me when I get ready in the morning. Jordyn has to put on deodorant (with the lid of course), are-spray (hairspray with the help of mommy), lipstick (chap stick), and brush her teef (teeth).

... loves to sing songs! She now sings many of the words with us, besides just doing the actions. Her favorites right now are Wheels on the Bus, If You're Happy and You Know It, and Row Row Row Your Boat. It was always fun to watch her do the actions, but it's even better to hear her sing the words too!

... is working on counting. She can almost count to 5 on her own! (She does 1, 2, 3 on her own - now we're working on going higher.)

... knows parts of the ABC's when we sing it aloud. (mainly the a, b, e, p, and t)

... takes such great care of Jayla. We just love to watch how she interacts with her. She still calls her "Jay-Jay," but she has also started calling her "Jaya," which we think is a beautiful name too!

... loves to read books to Jayla! It's so cute!
... pays very close to every single detail of everything we do ... and she doesn't forget anything! Many times if she asks a question, we tell her one time, and she does not forget it.

... makes us laugh all the time. Many nights after she goes to bed, Justin and I will sit and tell stories of things that Jordyn did during the day that totally cracked us up.

Jordyn is going to be 2 before we know it. We wish time would slow down, but we are sure enjoying each moment with her! :)
