Penny for your thoughts, Month 15


When people ask me how old you are, I can never remember. I'm not one of those parents who's like, yes, my child is 27.5 months old as of Tuesday. So... is it okay with you if I just tell people you're a little over a year old? K, thanks.

In the last month, you learned how AWESOME it is to throw a big-girl tantrum. Yes, you have fussed and screamed in the past. But now we're to the level of tantrum that involves collapsing on the floor and clawing at Mama's feet. Fun! Thankfully, you are easily distracted by bubbles, or by our friend Emilie walking across the street and catching you in the midst of a meltdown.

You have also discovered airplanes, and even if we're in the house you can tell when one is flying overhead and you do your best to mimic the sound and to sign the word for airplane. It's great to watch you soak everything up and regurgitate it. You're learning so much I can hardly believe it.
I wish you would learn to eat more, though. That's one area where we're still struggling. I know it's fine for you to like certain things almost every meal, but it's not fine to ignore all the other food in the universe. There's some really good stuff out there!

You are talking a lot, and it's awesome. Sometimes you're so serious, like you honestly think I can understand what you're saying and I'm going to reply so we can have a conversation. Our friend Paul came over one Sunday and you called out "HI!" from the hallway. He couldn't believe it was you. I'm so glad you're learning so much and having such a great time doing it.

There is so much going on right now in your life Aspen, and it's weird that eventually it will be just that-- your life. It won't be an extension of mine or Daddy's. I'm so grateful for all the time we have together, and for the memories we're making.
