Random Post :)

This is just a random post of a few pictures and things I want to remember about Summer being 19 months old.

*Summer is very interested in sequence of events and counting.  I will often tell her what we will do that day (i.e. we will eat breakfast, then take Tucker for a run, Mommy will take a shower, then we will go to the library, then go to Walmart, then meet a certain friend for a park date, etc).  Throughout the day, we will talk about what we already did, what we are currently doing, and what we are going to do next.  She likes to bring up these words as we are talking and try to remember what we are doing next and what we already did (so we can tell daddy at dinner what we did that day).  She is also very interested in counting.  Everything we see, if there is more than one of it, she will say, "Count 'em".  We count everything from her cereal, to her fingers, to the lights we see driving, to the "owies" on her knees, to the number of "E's" on the cereal box, etc.  The funniest time was on Sunday before the shower when she saw Grandma Tommerdahl and Grandma Kirkwood together....she exclaimed...."Two Grandma's!  Count 'em!"

*Summer is starting to put two and three words together to form  mini sentences.  She is also working with making words plural.  Most of the time she forms the plural correctly, but Paul and I have to laugh when at bedtime (to turn on her two fans) she says, "fan on's" in instead of "fans on"!  Summer and daddy have so many fun routines at bedtime.  It is really a special time for them including bath time, cuddle time, and lots of laughs!

*Summer is starting to learn words to songs.  Right now her favorite's are "The Itsy Bitsy Spider", "Old McDonald Had a Farm", and the "ABC song".  She will start to say something like..."Donald Farm E-I-E-I-O, Moo moo there" as a way of asking us to sing "Old McDonald" for instance.  She will often ask me to sing to her while we are jogging....so her songs come out more "swing style" as I stop to take a breath!  Summer's loves when we go running with her friends!

*Summer loves chocolate!  Her favorite is M&M's and chocolate cake.  In the grocery store she wanted hold the chocolate chips, and then decided she wanted "hug it"!
Hugging Chocolate!

*Summer loves the park and loves climbing the steps.  She loves finding rocks and sticks and making piles.  She absolutely loves being outside and just running around the yard.  She still loves animals--her favorites are puppies and dolphins (we see them at the zoo). 

*She loves playing with her babies and doing the things I do with her, with her babies.  After we got up and read her Bible story one day, she said "read baby, read baby" and went to read her little Bible with baby on her lap.

In other news, today we are officially full term (37 weeks) even though I don't expect Baby to come for at least 3 more weeks (Summer was past her due date)!  Here is a picture of Baby with his first clip-on tie I bought him at the consignment sale last week!  We're getting very excited to meet him!
