Around 18.5 months Amelia started referring to herself as Ama, which morphed into Ami and eventually Ami-a. She now switches between Ami and Ami-a with no rhyme or reason. She never says the L even though she does say words like Yellow correctly. Our favorite use is when one of us has something of hers, like her blanket, and she will take it and say, "No Mommy, that's Ami-a's!" with a pouty face...its pretty darn cute.
Amelia has gotten very clingy and attached to mommy. She gets very upset when I leave and pretty much hates gym daycare. As much as I love her loving and needing me I'm really hoping this is a phase.
Loves to give kisses. She just walks up and makes kissing face or kisses whatever body part she is near...knee, arm..., or she says, give mommy a hug and give mommy a kiss. She typically does not do just one, hugs and kisses go together. :) She has gotten pretty consistent with saying I love you, she even went through a phase where she would shout "i love you mommy" very dramatically as I would shut her light off and leave her room at night...little manipulator! :)
Amelia knows her colors and points them out correctly. She knows most animals and what sounds they make.
She is currently obsessed with The Little Mermaid. I bought her the movie when it was recently re-released and I figured she would watch it someday...well someday is now as she will sit and watch the whole movie. She talks about it all the time and even sings the songs randomly! This makes me very happy as I LOVE Disney movies and The Little Mermaid is one of my favorites!
We enrolled Amelia is gymnastics this fall and winter and she is loving it and thriving. She has mastered the somersault, the table and spider walking up the wall. She is working on a handful of other skills and honestly just truly enjoys the time each week.
Her 4 eye teeth have come in and her 2 year molars are working there way in. I was clued into this when she started sticking everything in her mouth again...what joy.
She loves babies and is so motherly and nurturing. She will hold her baby and say "its ok baby, Ami-as here" and i melt every time. Oh, and all of her babies are now named Baby Sara, there is Baby Sara and other Baby Sara, and other Baby Sara....you get the idea. :)
