Letter to my 20 month old boy...

Dear Nathan,

January and a new year have arrived! Today you are 20 months old! This is the year that you will turn 2! I can't believe that you are getting this big.

You are still such a toddler. You love to run and jump and play. You have learned a couple new tricks this month! You love to empty out the cabinets and climb in. You like to play peek-a-boo with us by opening and closing the door! You are so strong to carry all the pots and pans. You love to pretend to cook in them! Which is why Mama and Daddy got you a kitchen for Christmas. You really like it! We think that you may be a chef when you get older. In other news, you can now walk on your tippy toes, climb into the dryer, and throw everything in sight! You have a really good arm. We are still working with you on your speech. You sometimes repeat what we say, but it is hard to understand yet. We work with you everyday by pointing out objects around the house and saying the name of it over and over. You think that it is a really fun game. You are turning into a book lover. Just like Mama! You find books all over the house and bring them to us to read to you. You plop down in our laps and sit through the whole story. It is really cute. You are starting to sit up at the table like a big boy! You eat much better this way, we have discovered. Although you are still a pretty picky eater. We are working with you though. You also are kind of obsessed with opening and closing the doors. You love to go up and down the hall and open all the doors. Then you go back through and close them all. It is adorable to see you stand on your tippy toes to do this.

As you can see, so much of your baby traits are slipping away. You are getting to be so big. I love you so much!

Love,

Mama

My daughter emptied out the cabinets and climbed inside when she was a toddler too. :-)
