You are a strong willed child! This has been one of the hardest months
for us in a big area DISCIPLINE! If we spank you laugh, sit in a chair
you make it fun, if we take something away you just go on to something
else, and the wooden spoon... Your response was "ouch". That's it. When I
am disciplining you, you will get the biggest eyes, stare at me, and
act so attentive until I start laughing. We have no idea what to do with
you :) we love you to pieces which is why we have to figure this thing
out. We need to keep you safe! We also need to keep your food on the
plate and you off of our electronics...
You are in 4 diaper, 6 shoe, and 18 month clothes, but not for long! 24 months here we come!
You are so stubborn. I believe Mrs Connie called it "independent" this past Sunday. She said its your way or no way.
We moved you to the toddler nursery and Mrs Connie's Sunday school. You
were getting in trouble for climbing everything in the baby side so we
decided to move you on.
You love blocks, babies, purses, shoes and everything girly
You are a neat freak! You crack me up giving dada his shoes and telling
him to put them up. If we leave out a dish you are sure to point it out
You have started saying please and thank you most of the time.
You give the best hugs around the neck now
You have started singing. You were rocking your baby the other day
singing Jesus like the tune Jesus loves me. You also sing your ABCs all
the time, at least the tune anyway. If you want us to participate you
say "sing" very demanding.
You point to the radio in the car and say something which means you want your cd playing.
You are still a big time dancer! You attended VBS and danced the night
away. Music was definitely your favorite part. We did see you at play
time in the gym and you were participating like a big girl. You picked
the baby up when she fell off the sheet and laid her back on for the
game to continue.
You still wave, but you ave gotten more shy. You stay near to mommy and daddy when a stranger is talking to you.
You still have a tendency to wander off though! You are definitely not attached at the hip. Ha.
You tell people "moan" which is come on, "mere" which means you want to be picked up, "sit here", "go". Bossy britches.
You lay on the couch covered with a blanket like mommy and always have to have a "lillow" or pillow.
If we sneeze you say bless you. If we cough you pat on the back and say
"ok?" The other day you can to the bathroom door and said "mommy, in
here?" You crack me up.
We finally turned you around in your carseat this month hoping it would
make you stop unbuckling yourself. It seems to have worked for the most
Sometimes I wish time would stand still and others I want to skip
forward a few years. You light up my days whether with sunshine or the
fire in my eyes :) I wouldn't trade this for the world.
