This is a summary for Brinley from 21-21.5 months old.
I decided to start to test and see how flexible she could be with naps since summer is coming up. I have been doing her nap later some days and she has been handling it well. There isn’t really a good reason to do it now instead of trying it in the summer other than I am the type of person who likes to plan ahead. This way, I know I can plan an activity and know she can handle some flexibility rather than planning it and being worried if she will be able to handle it or not.
She does well overall. Something I have figured out about her is that she gets disobedient when she is tired. She is that way when it is naptime or bedtime.
Eating is still going well. Nothing of interest going on.
Everything here is going well, also. Brinley is enjoying playing with her siblings more and more.
This is an age when the super mimic really comes out. The copying is so exagerated and obvious that you really start to notice it and start to notice the things everyone else does that the child is copying.
Brinley had another hair cut during this time period. She loves to have her hair done and handled so she sits still very well during her hair cuts.
Her eye teeth are still making their way in slowly but surely. She is handling it better than she was a couple of weeks ago. I feel so bad for the endless teething pain!
