Stats: 2 feet 11 inches tall (95th percentile) and 26 pounds (50th percentile).
Favorites: She is all about Paw Patrol right now. She has the whole collection (almost) and she sits and plays with them and has them talk to each other and drive around. She lines them up on the coffee table and then switches them around to drive different cars. She loves to watch the cartoon as she plays and then acts out what is going on. She loves her classes a lot now. She is getting better at tumbling at the gym and singing along to songs at story time. She is all about going on a field trip somewhere. Every morning she is asking me when we are going “Bye Bye”. It’s sad that she knows the word “Walmart” and says it a lot.
Lifesavers for Mom and Dad: For her birthday, she got a bunch of toys and stickers that have been awesome forms of entertainment for her, especially at church. Grandma Coleman taught her to play out back while we worked on the yard, so that has helped when I am doing chores. She loves to lay on our bean bag too and chill out with her new blanket that Grandma Barrow made for her.
Dislikes: She will not say the word “please”. I repeat it so much throughout the day and even pair it with “thank you” and she will say thank you but not that. Why does she dislike that word??? It is a constant battle. She is super impatient when a toy is not working and does not want me to help her. She doesn’t like it when I get to her level and say NO when she hits or throws.
Facts: She can count to ten all by herself and can name the numbers out-of-order if we switch them up. She knows about half of her alphabet letters, but will not even try the colors. Mike got her to say “red” the other day and she knew what colors her blocks were , but she doesn’t seem to want to go any further on that. She loves to mimic and mock us now, so I will look over and she will be sitting exactly like I am, she will fold her arms and close her eyes for prayers, she started yelling out “Mike!” when I am yelling for Mike across the house. We need to be careful!
Sleep Habits: She was doing so awesome and then…I feel like she went through a growth spurt or something because she is now not sleeping through the night. She keeps screaming for water, her blanket, for me…anything to try to get me to come in the room. It’s so crazy how it just started up.
Doctors Visits: Just her two-year old check up. She was sick that day so we were able to get some antibiotics and it was gone in three days. We have been laying low so that we can hang around Mike as much as possible. We have a dentist visit coming up too. I’m curious what he/she says about her famous gap.
Eating Habits: Definitely the worst it has ever been. She is so hit or miss. She will eat breakfast and lunch, but then not dinner, but then will want to drink two glasses of milk. But then the next day she won’t want breakfast, but will have a huge dinner. It’s weird and from what I have been reading, totally normal. I started giving her vitamins to make me feel better about her nutrition. The doctor says that her stats look good so not to worry, but I am up at night reading everything about it and stressing!
Milestones: Officially counting to ten, walks up the stairs by herself, starting to learn the idea of a balance bike, waters my plants for me, feeds Barney for me, can identify many letters of the alphabet, sings and plays along to the stories and songs at story time, helps me clean up the blankets and pillows around the house, talking a lot more (unfortunately she is super shy, so it is mainly at home)….she is going to be a great help with the baby!
Looking Forward To: Seeing how she reacts when the little guy comes home from the hospital!
