20 Months

20 months isn't really that different from 19 months, so I don't feel I have a lot to write about, but I'm sure once I get going, more details will come to me!
She continues to be a life loving, happy go lucky little tot. She has definitely discovered the word 'no' and does everything from mumbling it to shouting it daily - which makes our days full of fun. Oy. She has been a pretty snugglebug lately though, which more than makes up for the constant 'no, no, NO'.
She did cut all four of her canine teeth this month and was quite the little champ about it although there are bite marks on just about every surface of our home and the grocery carts at Target.
She's loving pretending with her dolls and toys lately (she's the sweetest mama to her babies) and really loves mimicking anything she sees me doing. Because of this, she loves helping me clean up messes and really do any chore around the house because she's getting to do 'big girl' things like mama.
Her feet went up a shoe size over the past month which means she finally fits into her next stock of new-to-her shoes and she is obsessed with them. She wants to put a different pair of shoes on every few minutes. She likes them so much, they are now in a bucket at the foot of her bed for her to play with regularly throughout the day.
We've started really simple homeschool 'lessons' this month that last no more than a half hour each day. Usually some combination of some sort of art lesson - whether chalk, coloring, or playdough, physical activity and a nature walk in our backyard to find acorns or different color leaves or ladybugs. She loves it and it's a good intentional part of our day to learn something new or practice something we've been learning. 
In addition to school lessons, we've started Bible lessons and praying with her daily. We're going through the Jesus Storybook Bible and since sometimes it's a little lengthy for her attention span - we just take it a page at at time. She loves praying - she's folds her hands and covers her eyes and prompts us to pray more frequently than we usually prompt her - which is both humbling and heartwarming at the same time.

Well I guess I did have more to write about than I thought. It is crazy to think that in a few short months she'll be a two year old. Yikes. How on earth did that happen?
