Your nicknames...These days we call you sing sing. It all started with "Alsingla" which is what Max calls you because he can't quite say Alexandria. Now it just so happens that you love to sing the most lovely little tunes that are all your own, and sometimes you follow the tunes you hear ever so slightly.
Personality...You are a fun and sweet little person. Cautious but outgoing, resilient, confident and happy. Still the best words to describe you from the very beginning are refined and elegant and even...classy. I never thought those words could describe a baby but somehow you were just born that way. You are also pretty sassy when you feel you've been wronged. If you happen to be at a table when we tell you "no" you will lean forward and smack your hand on the table while staring down the offender. I've also seen you bop Max on the head more than once for a variety of offenses.
You are very active, and you love to play both independently and with others. You don't need much by way of naps and are a total night owl but I think I know why. In the evening when Max is asleep you have a quiet house (and mama and papa) all to yourself. That's when you practice your walking skills, explore Max's most treasured toys, and you might even get some spoonfuls of ice cream. Who wouldn't stay up for that?
Physical...You are on the tall side (31.5 inches) and definitely skinny. You love yogurt, tomato soup, broccoli, almond milk, butternut squash...and cheesy bunny crackers. Your satiny and suprisingly blonde locks are not sure if they want to be straight or curly yet. Sometimes the ends will flip or the top will wave for a day or two before going straight again. As for teeth you took your time getting them and then within a couple of weeks, bam! You had 6!
Milestones...You say mama and papa and sometimes "mampa" if you are not quite sure and just want someone to help you. You also say uh-oh every time something breaks or falls on the floor (so about 30 times a day). You call your sippy cup "baba" and when you see pictures of other babies you say bah-bee! Just yesterday you began to say "yah? yah?" when you are asking for something.
But best of all I love your babble talk. It's so cute that at first I would try to mimic what you said but I learned quickly that you took offense to that
Me: Where did your crayons go?
You: abidi....kway...dah dee dah dee...diday!
Me: abidi kway...haha so cute!
So now I just answer in plain English and you nod happily and continue...
Things you love...coloring (you love to color, paint and draw), dancing (whenever you hear music you stand up and bounce and wiggle), your jess brown doll (you give her hugs and chat with her), matryoshka dolls (you can be hungry, tired or both but those little dolls will quiet you down right away).
