I’m still in denial that Lia turns 2 today! I was browsing through my phone pictures and found ones of her just a few months ago before we moved and she was a totally different little kid. She still had many baby qualities that have all but disappeared now. Plus her hair has finally grown in some (that makes such a difference!) and her little personality has just continued to evolve and grow. She’s so funny.
I’ve always said this before but she’s a fierce little munchkin. She’s intensely funny and always trying to make you laugh but will turn on a dime and scream if you don’t do it the way she wants. I remember it being kind of like this with Noah except his turns were atomic and generally lasting vs. hers can be reversed with a slide of hand or a big bulldozer.
“Me too”, “I don’t want it”, and “I do” are her favorite phrases these days. Always wanting to be included in what’s going on I now realize why my parents were so big on being fair – we probably wouldn’t let them get away with anything else. If Noah has a pretzel, Lia has to have one too. And she will be considerate and ask for one for him if she gets to it first. (she always asks for a smoothie for bubba when I hand hers to her.)
Poor thing didn’t get a proper party because we’re heading to the beach the weekend we would have held it so we’re taking her out tonight and have a cool Minnie Mouse candle (because she’s kind of obsessed with Minnie Mouse). Our plan is to throw her something while we’re at the beach – cake and all. Just a few days late. Next year she deserves a big bash!!
Weight:27lb and holding strong
Length: not entirely sure but she’s sprouted a bunch based on the marks on the walls we’ve been making. I’ll have to measure later.
Head:big…haha. I don’t think it’s changed much actually.
Sleep: Still needs rocked to sleep:( It’s actually quite the process now. She starts on the floor reading books, playing puzzles and then asks to be rocked. It’s tough because she’s so big now and has trouble getting comfortable. Although I still secretly love her snuggles.
Eating:anything and everything still
Milestones: Has really started to talk now. Stringing words together to make primitive sentences etc..
I do have pictures to share but they’re on the other computer and I’ve just not had the time or energy to fix them and post. Hopefully soon!!:)
