20 Months & 21 Months

20 Months
You say just about any word now and you are starting to put together some phrases. 
You cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.  Sometimes you'll fake a cough just to cover your mouth and get praise from those around you
You refer to Barrett as "my baby" and "bear bear"
You've started requesting bows in your hair and even though you don't leave them in long, you are getting better
You have a slightly unhealthy obsession with all things Dora and Thomas the Train
You have started boycotting naps and bedtime and because you've always been a great sleeper, it has thrown Mommy and Daddy for a loop. 
Went poo poo on the potty without having Mommy or Daddy ask you if you had to go on October 9, 2013
Started a new bedtime routine on October 10, 2013. We read books, give water in a sippy cup, say our prayers and put you in your bed. 
Naps are on your couch in the living room. You lay down, without too much of a fight, and you nap anywhere between an hour to three hours.
You went 'trick-or-treating' for the first time this year and you had a great time. It was a struggle to get you to eat anything other than candy for a couple days after Halloween.
You had your flu shot on October 19th for the 2013-2014 year. 
Chocolate milk is your preferred drink in the morning. You ask for it almost immediately after waking up. 
You have started to whisper...stories are so much more interesting when you whisper.
21 Months
Attended your first birthday party for your friend, Beau. The party was fall-themes at a pumpkin patch with a petting zoo and hay slides and mazes galore. 
You walk down the stairs (with help) holding on to the handrail...you almost refuse to slide down on your bottom.
You still HATE to ride in the car.
Your favorite word is mine and you say it in almost every sentence. You think that all your old things (baby bathtub, bassinet, bouncy chair, high chair) are yours and you are sharing with Barrett.
You want to paint your own nails now and refuse any help.
You now say hold me, please when you want someone to pick you up.
Since school has started, you get to see the bus every day (if you'll look out the window).
Trucks, buses, trains and tractors are extremely fascinating.
You are starting to "dress" yourself or maybe I should say you are showing interest in dressing yourself. Most of the time, your skirts are worn as hats and you put your head through the wrong side of the shirt but you're trying.
We've had to really try to be consistent with discipline. You are so head strong and independent..Nannie says you're a born leader.
You love puzzles and you are so proud of yourself when you can complete them without any help.
You took your 5th flight (3rd flight to Missouri).
You are still a Daddy's girl and you ask for him every morning.
You're favorite food is macaroni and cheese.
You are wearing 18-24 months and some 2T and your shoes are size 6
You still go to the bathroom on your potty but the fascination has worn off and you aren't as excited to go on your potty.
You beg to go outside and for walks all the time but with it being dark when we go to work and when we come home, you don't get to go on many walks.
You're getting a little rough with you puppies...you hear the word "soft" or "gentle" at least 500 times a day.
