Two and Three Quarters
height: 37 inches.
wearing: Loves wearing dresses all the time. Mostly wearing 3T because the 2T dresses tend to be too short on her now.
milestone progress: Likes counting but still skips over 6 and 7. Still dislikes the alphabet but she remembers the hand print / foot print alphabet pictures we've been doing to go along with her books - M for moose, B for bear, P for pig, C for cupcake.
The remembering things still blows me away, and she picks up on the tiniest details. She makes connections between things that never cross my mind.
Prefers 'older' shows over things like Mickey Mouse nowadays. She enjoys Octonauts, Bubble Guppies, and Little Einsteins currently.
potty training: We are on day three of big girl panties. It's going better than expected - other than peeing on her great grandma's pillow. She is earning stars towards pieces of a new Doctor kit, which is pretty motivating in her book. Fingers crossed things go well.
talking: Never stops talking. It's the best. Most of the time.
A few gems -
Running into the bathroom to use the little potty. "You stay there. I'll do it on my own. Don't worry!"
When she tooted. "That's my favorite sound."
"What's a hungry b*tch do?" Instead of asking 'why' she asks 'what does (whatever) do?' And, my bad on the rest of that fill in. Oops.
"Oh my goodness!"
While she was playing in great grandma's room she got herself in trouble so great grandma kicked her out. She came out to me saying "Grandma threwed me out". So I asked why and she said "I don't know. No reason!".
eats: Loves her frozen fruit, breads, dairy, tiny veggies, and waffles. Current faves are pears, frozen pineapple, peas, waffles, pretzels, milk, popcorn, toast, bagels, strawberry yogurt, and oatmeal.
sleep: No naps for the most part. She'll pop one in here and there depending on how nutty she slept that night. She goes to bed easily but she's decided sleeping through the night isn't fun anymore. Again. She wakes up around 3 am completely wide awake and asking for anything she can think of - moooom I need a tissue, moooom I need some water, moooom I'm a puppy, moooom is it time to wake up yet? I'd say she sleeps all night once every 3 or so days. She's also up earlier for the day now, around 7 am. Not bad, just earlier than before.
The bedtime routine looks like...pjs and a diaper, teeth brushing, two books, lights out, 2-3 songs, smooches, she gets put in her crib where she tries to head dive into her pillow but misses and hits the wall of the crib, big hugs for mom and dad but only if you don't hug back because "I need to do it on my own", gets tucked in by dad and says good night to him, and then holds mom's hand for a minute and says good night.
She got her crib turned into a toddler bed yesterday. She says she is ready for a big girl bed, so that sounds like a lot of fun - especially with the wide awake at 3 thing. We shall soon see. Wish us luck?
loves: princess dresses, trips to Disney, playing pretend with her dinos/kitchen/doctor kit, reading her books, playing in the water on the porch, her TV time, helping me bake, playing fetch with Baxter, frozen fruit, trips to the mall play set with dad, stealing grandma's rocking chair, dancing, talking non-stop, counting, chewing on straws, Target popcorn, Publix cookies, her blankets, and "mommy" (when I asked her what she loves).
hates: Not getting whatever thing it is she wants at the exact moment she wants it. Being told no. Getting splinters. Going most places without mom & dad, instead of with just mom or just dad - she just likes when we are all together. "When it's hot outside" (when I asked her what she hates).
