Sylvi at 20 Months

someone is acting very much like a two year old around here! and it's not me (ok, most of the time)! we've been noticing alot of big changes with miss sylvi lately-- mostly in terms of attitude and comprehension and speech. like most almost two year olds, sylvi has realized that she has definite opinions about things and she insists on seeing them through. while she is still the sweet, snuggly baby in the house, she is also turning into a full-fledged toddler. luckily the tantrums have mostly stayed at bay or are mellow enough that they can't really be classified as full-on fits just yet.

she is talking up a storm these days and loves to imitate the things her sister says. just like isa, sylvi now asks 'why?' constantly. we're not sure if she really understands the concept or the subsequent answer, or if she's simply copying. she also mimmicks the way that isa asks questions, with the exact same tone and facial expressions and mannerisms. she even adds an, "uhm, uhm..." at the beginning if she can't remember what she was going to ask about. speaking of sisters, they really get a huge kick out of each other most of the time. they have their moments, but they spend the majority of their day playing well together. of course slyvi thinks her big sister is the coolest person to ever walk the earth, and isa doesn't mind, so that helps alot.

the sleep fairy has been very good to sylvi lately and despite the fact that her canine teeth are about to start popping through, she is sleeping like a champ. both girls have been sleeping in alot later this summer, which baffles phil and i (we're not doing anything differently really). of course now that i have put that out to the blogosphere, they are both surely going to be waking up at the crack of dawn from now on! ack!



  1. OMG...I feel like I have died and gone to heaven...3 sets of pics in one day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can absolutely tell how much Sylvi idolizes Isa just by the look in her eyes.
