Happy 20th Month, Dagny!

Dear Dagny,

Here I am again, it seems just like yesterday I was writing about your 18th month, well here is what amazing things you did in your 19th month.

We celebrated Father’s Day for the first time. Even though it rained, you, Daddy, and I had a wonderful time.

You also went to the beach for the first time. You weren’t to keen on the whole sand thing at first, but towards the end you seemed to make your peace with it. We look forward to going back with you this summer.

You feed, patted, and sat on a horse for the first time. You had no fear of them, you enjoyed the whole experience.

You saw fireworks for the first time. On the fourth we decided to put you down for your nap a little later so you could stay up for the fireworks. We weren’t sure how you would react to them. When you saw the first one, you paused… smiled, clapped and promptly said “Again”. That went on through the whole firework show.

You went on your first vacation this month. We all went down to Long Island to your Aunt and Uncle’s house to celebrate Fourth of July. Daddy went back after the weekend, but you and I stayed for an additional week and half so you can really get to know your family.

You adore them all. You feel comfortable in their arms and around them. You love to play and laugh with them. You LOVE the pool so much. You could be in the water all day if I allow you. You love the slide. You are an adrenaline junkie and anything that has to do with speed, height, or motion you are up for it. I am a little worried, you’re to much of a daredevil for me.

It seems like you are at the next level of communicating.

You are picking up more and more words everyday. I really have lost count. You say Erika as clear as day (which honestly surprised us). For Emerson you say EM. You have now started to respond verbally to my questions. Which is so awesome. The first time you did this I paused for as second to digest it. I think its so amazing how you are now starting to communicate. The question was “Dagny, what would you like?” and you said “Cheerio” with a big smile.

Everyday for the past month and half you go around and point at things and ask me what they are called. It is so cute. So, I decided to test if you were really retaining it and of course you are, because when I asked randomly “Where is the window?” you would point to it or “Where is the chair, the remote, the wall?” and so on, you pointed to everything correctly. You know all your family members if I ask you were is your Uncle or Aunt you point to them.

I am so impressed with how wonderful you did these two weeks in a different environment. You are such a sweet, loving little person. You just melt everyone’s heart here in Long Island. They all love you so much.

I love you very much.

    Where does the time fly? I can’t believe that Dagny is almost 2 yrs old… which means that you guys have been a family of 3 for almost a year. Thank goodness that you’re keeping this diary – all these wonderful memories would come & go. Happy 20 months!
