I am really loving Sophie at this age. There have been some challenges as we learn to navigate the no/mine/I do it/random tantrum stage, but for the most part she is a very fun, sweet girl. My favorite part of being her mom right now is watching her language skills develop. I am continually surprised by the things she will say to me.

She chatters nonstop and provides us with a running commentary of everything she sees, thinks, and wants. Her favorite things to talk about are animals, colors, milk, characters from her shows, the turtle movie at the aquarium, the time we went outside and the moon looked like a banana, the time she had a bath that was too hot, and the time Jobe ate the carrot nose off her snowman. Her favorite things to say are "bubbly, bubbly, bubbly" and "here you go buddy!" My favorite thing she has said lately is "Burp" & Ernie (from Sesame Street).

These are just a couple everyday videos showing what Sophie is like at 22 months:

Video 1: Right now she is in the parrot phase and repeats everything we say. She loves to ask to have just one more "minute". 

Video 2: She is starting to learn words to a few songs and will often sing along with us. One of her favorite songs right now is "Once there was a snowman who was tall, Tall, TALL!" And yes, she still calls a snoman a meeman :)
