It’s been a while since I’ve given you all an update on Regan’s development. I used to do them pretty regularly before she turned one, but then I figured no one would really care. She changes absolutely every week, but who wants to read a weekly update? I mean, really. *yawn*
So since it’s been a few months let me tell you that she has changed by leaps and bounds. The biggest milestone, as you can imagine, is that she walks. It’s like one day she wasn’t walking and the next she was pulling away from me and walking on her own.
She is still a healthy eater for the most part. There are some things she doesn’t like, but that has mainly to do with texture. It can’t be too mushy or too hard. She still loves fruit and would really eat nothing but fruit if I let her. She loves milk and water. I have given her diluted juice a few times and she looked at me like I had given her rat poison. She’s a greedy little somethin somethin. Most days after she eats, I find her all in my face trying to eat off my plate.
She has 8 teeth now so her chompers are coming in pretty fast lately. Despite having all those teeth, if I give her anything bigger than a bite she shoves the whole thing into her mouth. We’ve been working on how to bite things.
The biggest change as of late is that she is talking. Like in complete sentences. And if I could speak toddler, I would tell you what she says. It sounds something like, “goata shew soshfe aaalffoo momma.” All I can do is try to agree with whatever I think she said. Sometimes I just tell her no for good measure. But I LOVE hearing her little voice. It is truly the sweetest thing I have ever heard.
Her new teachers tell me how smart she is and how she catches on to everything so quickly. They adore her and don’t seem to mind when she cries. And that cry is LOUD. One day I dropped her off and I could hear her crying from the parking lot. Still I think the change in schools was good for her and I don’t think it is a coincidence that the week she started there she started talking more.
Well, that’s about it for the Regan update. I’ll do it again in another six months. Hopefully by then she’ll be potty trained and pouring her own milk.
