two and a half!

i'm not quite sure why "two and a half" is such a milestone age...but hey, you do go to the doctor for a well check and that right there is enough reason for me to "document" what's new with our lil gal. how many times as a parent to do you hear or say, "soak it up, they grow up fast..."? soooo many but jeez louise, it's so true! i've had so many moments over the last couple weeks where i just can't believe i'm having full coversations with my daughter. she is such a sharp little thing and obviously i'm one of her biggest fans. i wasn't going to list all the "accomplishments" but then i remembered this blog here is her "baby book." so here goes, liv lately: can count to 20, knows all her colors and shapes, can work a mean puzzle and can sing her abc's in three different languages. kidding. just english, hehe. (*note* i credit her omie for 99% of her smart-ness. she's so awesome with her!)

here's a couple things that have flown out of her mouth lately that makes me giggle:

imagine hearing these with the sweetest voice you've ever heard.

  • walking out of school yesterday i asked her why she didn't take a nap...she answers, "i'll cuddlebug with you mommy when we get home, okaeee?

  • driving by a starbucks, she squeals out the window, "look!! thanks a latte!" (see why at previous halloween post)

  • from the backseat, "mom! dad! please, no more singing guys!" (the guys is my favorite part)

  • after visiting a friend that has a dog named matilda that played a great game of fetch with her, "momma, that 'tilda is a great dog, isn't she?"

  • this morning she walked in our room with a major case of bedhead and said, "rise and shine sweepyheads"

  • another driving one (i swear she says the best stuff while we are in the car), "lets go get some popcorn from target, and turn up the music please."

  • an hour past her bedtime, she cries from her bed, "pllleeease, someone come paint my toenails..." really?

she still hasn't conquered using the potty completely, but the recently purchased yo gabba panties seem to have put things in full swing. i just need to stop being lazy and focus more on it.. why does it almost seem like more trouble? i've really mastered the vertical diaper change... i know, i'm terrible.

we have her doctors appt. in just a couple weeks, shes still a petite thing and i think she weighs around 26 lbs. she'll like it when she's older right? favorite current food is peanut butter & jelly.

and that's our tot in a nutshell. at 2.5! xoxoxo
