23 Months Update


Last week, Elin turned 23 months!  How can my beautiful baby be a month away from 2? I’ll try not to lament about that too much because I’m sure there will be plenty of that next month.

The Stats:
Weight: 27.2 lbs
Height: 34.25 inches
Clothes: 18-24  and 2T
Diapers: Size 4
Shoes: 5.5-6
Teeth: 18


Elin loves to count to 10 and she even can say some higher numbers up to 20.  I recently found some blocks that have numbers on one side and then pictures on the other side. To my surprise, Elin had no trouble identifying the numbers on the blocks even though they were not in order.  She can completely say the alphabet and now has started to sing the alphabet. She often times will feel like being British and says “zed” instead of “zee”.

Elin’s vocabulary continues to explode and amaze us this past month. I tried to keep track of some of the new words and sayings:

  • I love you
  • I’m sorry
  • I see you
  • See you soon
  • Thank you
  • Where is it?
  • Brush Teeth
  • Happy
  • Easter bunny
  • Happy Easter
  • Elin Paige ( when I was teaching her to say name she would repeat “Elin” then if I said “Paige” separately but then when I would say, “Elin Paige” she would look at me alarmed and scream, “NO!” She knew that when I said “Elin Paige” she was in trouble!)
  • Walk
  • Watch Show
  • Toes
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Foot
  • Eat
  • Food
  • Airplane
  • Tea Potty (when she sees a teapot)
  • Mickey
  • Let it go (sings along with Frozen movie)
  • Moon
  • Sky
  • Angel
  • Cute


Elin is LOVING the warmer weather because that means more time outside.  She loves to swing, ride in her wagon, ride her tricycle, pick up rocks, move small patio furniture, and play with balls.


She loves to dance around to music and place her hands like a ballerina.

This month she celebrated her second Easter and had a great time meeting the Easter bunny, hunting for eggs, and talking about the Easter bunny.  She is a little ball of energy and we are eagerly anticipating her turning the big 2!
