24 Months Update

2 Years Old
24 Months
You're 2 years old!
Junes 24
How on earth did that happen?!?! I find it so hard to believe that you're not really a baby anymore and are becoming a full-fledged big kid. Although to be honest, no matter how old you get you'll still be one of Mommy's babies.
July 1
First, a few official stats. You weigh 20 lbs and 4 ozs (0.18%ile) and are 33 inches tall (33%ile). Your head circumference is 47 cm (35%ile). You're wearing a mix of 12 months and 18 months clothes. You're wearing size 4 shoes.

So much has happened since the last time I managed to write a monthly update. We had to evacuate the house you lived in your entire life due to a crazy flood. We moved in with your Nana and Pappi for 2 months. You moved out of a crib, although technically a packnplay at that time. We moved into our new house. You became a big sister when your little brother entered the world. And even though a lot of this stuff we couldn't prepare you for, you've transitioned just fine, still sleeping through the night even!

You're speaking really well and get your point across. In general, they aren't complete sentences, but there are a few phrases you'll say. Things like, "Mommy sit by me," or "Elley do it."

You definitely have an opinion on your likes and dislikes. Mornings can seem to take forever as you say no to each item of clothing or each breakfast option.

Continuing on likes, your favorite foods are french fries, cheese, broccoli, and like a true Cajun girl anything with rice (gumbo, red beans, chilli,...). Your favorite tv shows are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and A,B,C,D (otherwise known as Wheel of Fortune). You received a bunch of kitchen toys for your birthday, which you're loving. Other favorite toys to play with are (mega)blocks and Legos (Duplos technically). You love helping Daddy cook in the kitchen and always want to "stir it around." You're also becoming a child of the twenty-teens and love looking through Instagram to see pictures of babies or watching videos on youtube.

As I mentioned to start with, you recently became a big sister. You love your little brother and the first thing you make sure of when I get you up every morning is where your brother is. Each morning as I drop you off at daycare you give him a hug and a kiss before heading into your classroom. But while you might like him, you aren't a huge fan of him having time with Mommy. While you've always been a bit of a Daddy's girl, the fact that Bear spends time nursing with Mommy means that you also need Mommy at that exact second, but that's starting to get better.

Speaking of relationships, you're starting to make friends. The first of your friends from school you mention are much to Daddy's dismay, boys, N and A. But of the girls you'll mention C and MC. At your Hanukkah party at school I had more than one parent tell me that their kids talk about you enjoy playing with you. Hopefully that friendliness continues as you get older.

I absolutely love the age you are now. Don't get me wrong, there are temper tantrums and life is exhausting, but I wouldn't want it an other way. I love your little voice and the phrases you say and want to be able to freeze time and always remember you this way.
