The end of the Two's for Princess Abby
Our sweet little Princess is nearing the end of her second year! Amazing! This yr has been tough...they don't call them the terrible two's for no reason. But we are definitely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It's so fun to see her little personality develop. And...it's nice to observe her beginning to listen and understand what mommy and daddy are saying. She's a stubborn one for sure and she challenges us each day..but she is also so loving and nurturing and so full of spirit. I love watching her change and develop into the little girl she is becoming.
Some of her favorites:
Night time activity: watching one of the Disney movies and drinking Apple Juice. This week the favorite movie is Lady and the Tramp
Morning Activity: waking up with a smile on her face and yelling "Mommy I'm awake". Then she quickly demands a "cereal bar" (nutrigrain).
Game to play with Mommy: brushing Mommy's hair and putting in a pony tail "ouch"
Pair of shoes: Brown boots that she wants to wear with every outfit (even when it's warm out).
Toy to play with: baby dolls
TV show: Yo Gabba Gabba is in the lead!
Diva moment: telling Mommy or Daddy to "go away" (which we do not like)
Most recently she:
got a haircut
started taking showers instead of baths (and we're seeing the difference in out water bill)
started sleeping again in her twin bed (although she still has nights when she crawls into bed with us)
began wearing a size 3T clothes and size 8 shoes
learned the song "It's A Small World"
mastered her "please", "thank you", your welcome", "excuse me" and "bless yous"
And Most Importantly...she REALLY REALLY adores her baby brother and loves being a great Big Sister!
