I can't believe Autumn is only 2 months away from turning 2. I know every mom says it at each stage but I think this is my favorite stage so far!! Now that I'm going to blog more (cross my fingers on that one), I want to document more of what she is doing so I don't forget! She is such a sponge and surprises me with things she has learned and things she says. This month she learned to recognize all her letters and numbers up to 11. She can count to 20, and this month surprised me by counting backwards from 10 by herself.
She is constantly singing from the time she wakes up to the time she goes to sleep. Her favorite song that I hear at least 5 times every hour is ABC's. If she starts singing "Twinkle, Twinkle", she will switch sometimes in the middle of it to ABC's since it's the same tune!!
She LOVES to play and splash in the water, sit and read all her books, give zerberts, and yes, Elmo is still "the man" in our house!
This month we finally retrained her to go to sleep by herself again! With all of her many previous illnesses before, her symptoms would get worse if we let her cry, so it was hard to teach her to go to sleep by herself without any crying. But the key to the easy transition this time was keeping the door open when we leave the room! Now Luke and I have time at night together by ourselves which is great!!!
The last thing this month is Autumn became a big cousin!!! My little nephew Jude was born on the 14th and is handsome as ever, even though Autumn is jealous that he may have more hair than she does! We already love spoiling him rotten!!
I love you so much Autumn and so blessed to be your mommy!
