Here are a few new things since the last post:
~She is no longer obsessed with ice! Whew!
~She has fully cut 16 teeth and we think is on a teething break, but the last few days she has been putting her whole hand in her mouth. Could she really be getting her second set of molars just a couple months after her first set? Seriously?
~She is talking up a storm! She repeats everything we say, or at least parts of it. She says many new words every day.
~She has fallen in love with reading! She will request book after book after book! She can even sit through non-board books if they are not too long. LOVE it!
~T has a favorite shape, the oval! She LOVES ovals. She finds them everywhere and want so read the "oval" (shape) book all the time.
~She likes to actually walk on walks rather than ride in the stroller. Oh dear, I think she forgot that her mommy and Charissa like to cruise in the summer and that she will have to stroll every now and then. I think I will be able to lure her back in when she remembers that stroller trays have snacks!
~She loved her Birthday. She loved the cake! She loved the presents. It was very low key and perfect! It was on a Sunday so a very busy day for daddy with church stuff in the am and a service at a nursing home in the pm, but we did have some special time together after nap.
|M and I decorated the kitchen early in the morning before she woke up. She loved it!|
|T: "Happy, Cake, See, Ball" (Happy Birthday. I like cake! Mommy look at those ball things hanging from the ceiling over there.)|
|M: I love getting my picture taken. (Check out T's "It's my Birthday" shirt!)|
|T: Classic 2 year old "Cheese" picture!|
|T: Heidi always knows the perfect gift! I LOVE to draw!|
|T: My own pink ride on toy! Love it!|
|And this is how it feels when someone else has a Birthday... M did get to open many gifts as well.|
|The cake! Gluten and dairy free and enjoyed by my family.|
|T: Whoa look at that fire! M: I will blow it out T.|
|T: whew (tiny tiny dainty blow)|
|M: Actually T you need to BLOOOW it like this! T: Oh, OK!|
|T: Hmmm... not sure how this thing works?|
|M: T, you blow it just like this.|
|T: Got it!|
|Not sure if she ever really got it, but it was a nice distraction while I cut the cake.|
|T: This is good stuff mommy!|
|T: Like, really really good stuff!|
|M: I love the frosting!|
|A sweet moment captured!|
|T: The fork was slowing me down! (Aunt Joanna, please note that I needed to immediately wear my new skirt)|
|T and M: I guess we were a little thirsty!|
|2 years old in the red chair!|
|The best photo we got of just her... sigh! She sure has grown since her first Birthday. Check out those photos HERE!|
