Esme is 17 months old today. She is becoming more and more animated with each passing day. She has such a silly and fun personality and loves to egg on Parker, Jimmy, and me. She continues to be a bit of a picky eater. I can get her to try stuff with a spoon, but she won't feed it to herself. She is trying to eat more with a spoon and fork, so maybe that will help with trying new foods. Her language explosion continues and it seems like there is a new word every day. She understands so much of what we say as well.
She is still in 18 months clothes, but we are sprinkling in some 24 month and 2T. I was hoping not to have to buy winter clothes in both sizes, so I am going to try and make it work. Luckily she can wear a lot of leggings and stretch jeans and we can roll up sleeves if needed. She is in size 4 or 5 shoes depending on the shoe. She is getting faster each day to and loves to chase Parker up and down the hall.
One of my favorite things she did this month was when we were at Target. She turned around in the cart so she could see where we were going. As we walked about she was saying "WEEEEEEE." There were several employees that got a big kick out of it.
