Today it hit me like a ton of bricks. She's growing up and is turning 2 1/2 on Monday...
and there is nothing I can do about her growing up!
I know every year I just say it gets more fun with her, but if I could pick a time to stop her from growing it would be now. She is perfect for us. Today after she got out of the shower, she picked out her necklace after I helped her get dressed, got a stool and found the finger nail polish that I had hidden up high from her and told me she wanted her nails painted, after that she told me "piggy tails." I guess this is her signature hair do cuz she tells me every day almost to do piggy tails. After she was all ready she told me to "take picture of me." So I had to bust out the camera. This girl knows what she wants and I'm glad.
She loves to trace her hand and color. She was looking for the easter bunny outside to hop over and bring her more eggs out the window.
Some random facts that I don't want to forget about her:
She yells "DADDY" over and over when she wakes up
Still sleeps 12 hours and takes 2.5 hour nap
Horrible eater still so I still feed her baby food so she gets something good and she loves it
She loves babies and all of her cousins and knows then by name
As of right now, Uncle Justin is her favorite
Her sayings are "Mommy are you happy" and "Mommy don't leave me"
Can count to 20 and knows all letters
She decided to potty train herself basically back in February
She loves dance and gymnastics, but excels most in gym
She has always loved to be around people and is a little show off
Wants to go to Aunt Kel's house and the beach like every day
Gives the best hugs and kisses right now and cuddles for maybe a minute
Who knows where she learned about ghosts but we had to scare them out of grandmas house
And my favorite right now is every morning she comes in and gives me a hug and then rubs my tummy and says "baby in mommy's tummy" and gives it a kiss. She will be the best big sister and she will hopefully not have to share her birthday cuz it's due on her exact 3rd birthday! We love you miss sassy pants and you will always be my baby.
