The Schwartz's vs the 19 Month Old

Sarah, you are 19 months old now.  Here's how you've grown:

* You have quite the personality!  You laugh and giggle all the time.  You talk to your little people and your stuffed animals and I think you do voices and have them talk to you.
* The other day at a restaurant you were turning around and talking up a storm to no one.  There was no one around!  So I asked you, "do you have an imaginary friend" and you said, "Yes!".  What a goober!
* You've developed a number of "cute-but" habits.  For example, you think it's hilarious to be chased around the house and run the opposite direction when I call you.  Which is cute, but you now try to run away in parking lots when I'm trying to get you in the car.  A dangerous and frustrating game.
* You are still a pretty good eater, but we've entered the dip stage.  I don't give in too often but when you aren't eating your meat I'll put a little bit of honey mustard on your plate for you dip it into.  It works like a charm and you'll clean your plate.
* You still love to sing and listen to music.  Some of your favorite songs: If You're Happy and You Know It, 5 Little Ducks, Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree, and the ABC song.
* We've been listening to the Disney Channel on Pandora recently and having dance parties.  You think it's hilarious when I scoop you up and spin you around the room while singing along at the top of my lungs.
* You're still obsessed with the tv.  You get to watch an hour in the morning while mommy wakes up and gets your breakfast ready.  But I hear about it the rest of the day.  I'll tell you it's time for a nap, you'll run to the living room chanting "show, show, show!".  We've started letting you watch a Disney movie on the weekend before bed.  We watch about 30 minutes Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and have it finished by then.  So far you've seen The Little Mermaid and Aladdin while cuddling on the couch with mommy and daddy.
* You love Mr. Potato Head.  He's your favorite toy right now.  (Which is another cute-but because I'm tired of finding Potato Head pieces all over the house.)
* You love to go to nursery now.  Daddy drops you off and you head right in without any complaint.  You actually get upset when the bring you out for a diaper change.
* Your favorite books right now is Roar of a Snore that you got from the Dolly Parton book club.  You will have me read it 3 or 4 times in a row then run around the house saying "Roar!".  It's not a very menacing roar, but it's stinkin' adorable.  
* You call your lion lovey roar now.  The other night when it was time to finish our movie for the weekend I asked you if you wanted your lion and you ran off to your room saying "roar! roar! roar!" and came back very excited to have him
* You like to play with Sophie (she tolerates it for the most part) and want to help feed her in the morning.  Then you'll sit next to her and try to talk to her while she eats.

You seem to be getting bigger every day and it's a joy to watch you grow.
