Our little baby girl is now 20 months old! Isn't this about the time that you stop counting the months and start just telling people that she is 1.5 years old? I don't know if I feel ready to stop counting the months? That is yet another thing that makes me feel like my baby is gone and my toddler is here. I know this truly is the case and in a way that is a very good thing since we will be having a new baby in a few months. It is better to have 1 baby and 1 toddler than 2 babies right?
Anyway, Brooke is getting big, well not big, just getting mature. She is still little, that's just her, Im sure she will always be petite. Suddenly though Brooke seems to be maturing on such a quick pace. Daily she is saying new words and phrases. She is now singing 3 entire songs "Happy Birthday", "The Wonder Pets Theme", and " Ring Around The Rosie". She is quite the little talker and I am not sure if there is even a moment in the day where she is not babbling something. I love it about her and just talk to her all day like she is my best friend. I found myself at Target the other day asking her if she liked the white sandles or the black ones and which she thought I would wear more often. I noticed a stranger looking at me like I was crazy and at that point realized that I do this type of thing all the time with Brooke and never think anything strange of it until that moment. O well! She's my best girl buddie, what can I say? I even got us matching shoes!
Another new thing that she has been doing is playing pretend. She loves to play with her little Fisher Price Animals. She can play for quite a while with her little imagination. It is so cute to see her at this age. It's nice for me too that she is at a more self entertaining age. She is OBSESSED right now with these 2 little Rubber Duckies! She has them EVERYWHERE with her, even demands to bring them into the stores sometimes. She LOVES to let them swim so I have a little bowl of water for them set out in the kitchen half the time. More than the bowl of water she LOVES to take baths with her duckies! She takes at least 1, usually 2 baths a day with those little guys!

I think that's her in a nutshell for her 20 month update? If I come up with more I will add it to the post. I also need to get back on track with taking pictures. I have been SO BAD at pulling out my camera lately. I don't know why because she is at such a dang cute stage right now!
This kid is my world and I love her more than she will ever know or understand!
