LAST monthly update before baby girl is 2 years old … and soon she won’t be our only baby girl!
So hard to believe, but so so fun to watch her progress and grow.
Favorites from this stage:
— Added the word “very” into her vocabulary…so funny to hear her say “that’s very cute” or “my dinner is very hot” haha!
— Continuing to LOVE ballet, story time, play group, swimming, and all of her weekly activities. She is the best little listener to her teachers and so sweet with friends!
— We’ve been celebrating lots of friend and family birthdays, and she gets so excited about birthdays…but always asks when Rea Rea’s birthday is haha! We tell her it’s soon, next month!
— All clinginess is gone and she’s now so sad when I pick her up from play group instead of when I drop her off, ha! Tables have turned!
— Still sleeping well, napping between 12-2 PM and sleeping at night from 7 or 7:30 PM until 7:30 or 7 AM!
— When she wakes up she comes to the door and says “Mom, I’m awake now!” She also remembers exactly what I told her we’d have for breakfast the night before, and asks for it right when we get her from her room.. ” I want oatmeal with peaches now, please!”
— She’s so friendly with other kids, holding their hands, waving, saying hi, asking their name, etc.
— She has started to repeat every question we ask her before answering…like a little parrot!
— She got her first little tea set and it’s already a new favorite toy..along with her baby doll.
— She’s so so darling and excited about being a big sister soon! She comes and hugs my belly and says hi to baby sister all the time.
— She requests to sing “I Am Moana” every time we’re in the car, and belts out every word of the soundtrack (yet, still hasn’t seen the movie itself haha…her mind will be blown when she watches it one day and realizes it’s a movie!)
— Still trying to potty train herself, which we’re holding off until summer travels are through. She’s so good though and we let her go before her tub each night!
— We spent 9 days of the month with Chase traveling for work, and it was a little exhausting to have a toddler all alone at 30 weeks pregnant for that many days, but she was so sweet…probably because Chase promised to bring her a treat if she was nice to mom the whole time! :)
— Two year old tantrums might be on the way, but she’s actually been really sweet and well-behaved lately for the most part. She is smart and can be reasoned with, so usually we can negotiate her into good behavior. She still has her moments like any kid though!
— Best singer award goes to this girl. She hears a song once and has it memorized, and is singing about 50% of the day with no shame! She loves all her songs from library story time, music class, the ones we play at home, and from primary at church (where she sits with me because I teach). She even went up in front of our entire church congregation on Father’s Day with all the older kids and sang the Daddy song because she knew it + the actions so well!
— We love this happy girl and the pure entertainment she gives us. She is a little love!
Swinging in her swimsuit, ^^ and just hugging baby sister like she does all day :)
Love spying on this sleeping cuddle bug on the monitor. But she looks so old!!!
SF city girl in a mini trolley we found :) So excited to ride in it like Daniel Tiger does!

I love having her in a good routine at home, but glad she can still be flexible

she stayed happy during our SF weekend and slept during her normal nap times! ^^

Seeing the mailman come is the best part of her day, if we make it home in time
