Amelia turns 2!!! (23 and 24 month update)

Amelia, my baby girl, your two!  I cant believe it! I am still wrapping my mind around the saying of "I have a two year old".

Where do I start? We have 2 months to go through and what a busy two months it has been.

You are 30 pounds 6 ounces and 35 inches tall. That's 1 pound and 2 inches in two months. Yup you went through a growth spurt alright!

Talking: Well you my little girl are defiantly a talker and can say 102 words and 8 small sentences! I can't believe you have learned 43 new words in 2 months. I am loving it!

Your new words are: Mine, shower, cold, teeth, you, juice, glasses, on, cookie,off, there, it, see, ow, guys, pop, he, she, is, sorry, come, balloon, read,  heart, circle,book, more, car, apple, pray, arm, potty, hat, socks, goose, water, later, Amelia, sky, one, five, four, blast.

Sentences: come on, there you are, there it is, there he/she is, here you go, hi guys, more juice please, bye bye see you later.

You can count backward from 5 and forward to 3.

Shapes you know: Heart, circle, and star

Potty training: Lets just say we have our really good days and our really bad days, but hey we will get there when we get there.

Paci: You only get "sass" for night night time and are doing very well with that.

Eating: You will eat just about anything, but are weird with you veggies. Some days you can't get enough, others you refuse to eat them period. Mommy is sneaky though, she hides them in your juice, noodles, and sauces and you don't mind that at all!

Sleeping: Well you sleep great as long as you sleep with us from midnight on. We aren't complaining though. to be completely honest, mommy loves it and sleeps better!

Playing: Oh my goodness, you can play for hours, especially if it involves water. You are such a water baby and lately we are out by your baby pool every day, for at least an hour. You got a bouncy house for your birthday, which you love and a sand and water table! Lets just way we spend ALOT of time outside this summer.

You still love our mommy and me groups and now that it is summer, we have something to do almost every day!

 I took you strawberry picking! By far these were the sweetest strawberries I have ever eaten!

You spend at least a hour a day doing "school time" with mommy and daddy.

you and daddy got distracted during school time and decided to cover your selves in blue chalk instead.

You have learned to count backward from 5 and it is hilarious! You run around yell 5 4 3 2 1 blast off!

You are communicating with us more and whining less ( it helps that mommy and daddy try to crack down on whining).

You went to MMO for the first time! You have been doing so good there. So far my reports have consisted of how well you play with others, goes potty for them, does great during craft time, and overall is a good child. It is music to this mommy's ears! I am so proud of my sweet girl!

You went to see the Birmingham Zoo this month and LOVED it! You are such an animal lover. You especially loved the big cats.

Mommy and daddy took you bowling this month and you loved it for the first 3 frames and then preceded to run around playing the rest of the time :)

I am so glad that this summer has already been so eventful and you have both mommy and daddy to spend it with. We am soaking up every minute of it. Mommy and daddy are so loving watching you grow up and we can't wait to see what this next year has in store for us.  As always we love you with all our hearts Amelia, you are our greatest blessing!
