It feels like you've grown in the blink of an eye, but I also feel like you've been part of our lives forever. I cannot imagine our family without you!! Here's a look back to your one year update.
You add so much joy, laughter, sweetness as well as spiciness to our lives! So, Reese, what does the two year-old version of you look like?
We haven't yet taken you to the doctor for your two year check up, but you weigh about 30#, wear a size 5 diaper, size 6-7 shoe & wear mostly 3T clothing. I put you in 2T jeans a few weeks ago & they were skin tight & you could barely move!
You're difficult to photograph since you always want to immediately see the picture, sometimes before we even take it! "I see? I see?"
Daddy helped demonstrate how to stand by the chalkboard; what a good helper he was to Mommy!
|Explaining that you're turning TWO!|
You're a complete character & have an awesome sense of humor that your Daddy & I cannot get over! You're still in the Toddler class at Discovery Point & Ms Barbara & Ms Kelly adore you. They'll be so sad when it's time for you to move up to P1!!
Your favorite foods are pizza, grapes, bananas & yogurt. I'd say you're a pretty sporadic eater & are never thrilled about your main entree. You're still an awesome sleeper & easily go down at 7:30 at night & sleep till 7:30 in the morning. At bedtime, we cuddle & you always want Daddy to come in for hugs & kisses too, "Daddy's comin'!" is what you always say. When it's time for me to leave, you always call me back in, "Mommy, Mommy! Sleep tight!" Ugh, I love you!!! You nap for 2 hours every day.
You're finally getting longer hair so I've been figuring out how to style it with ponies & piggies, but a lot of the time you just wear it down, maybe clipped back with a bow.
You're definitely getting more independent & better about not needing to be held constantly, but you still say, "I want up!" quite a bit. Mommy's back is often very tired at the end of the weekend, but I just can't resist you! Since your birthday last year, you're much gentler & rarely ever swipe or hit but you do throw a good tantrum! You're sitting on your Minnie potty seat that you picked out but you've yet to actually go on the potty. I'm amazed by you on a constant basis & can never get over the new things you bring home each day! I love you more than you'll ever know, little girl. Happy, happy birthday to my sweet & sassy Reese Elizabeth!
