Very hard to believe that in two short months we'll have a two year old. How can it be?
And what a personality this little one has. Boy oh boy, she keeps us on our toes. She is equal parts strong-will and sweetness!
Some new things she's doing include asking us to chase her around the room; saying "that tickles me" every time we touch her; counts to 5; knows about half of the alphabet and several colors; asks to sit on the potty and doing a good job peeing on it; adores bouncing (both in her crib and on the trampoline we got her for Christmas); and giving us kisses without being asked or us giving her one first.
She talks up a storm but about half the time we only know what she is saying because of the context. Almost everything seems to start with the "b" sound (for example, TV is be-be).
I don't know about her size because we haven't been to the doctor in ages, but she is starting to wear 24 month clothes and even a few 2Ts.
She goes to bed between 7-7:30pm and sleeps until about 7:30am. However, the last few nights she's woken up at some point during the night screaming. The first few times, we went in to console her but then it would take forever to get her back to sleep. So last night I popped in some earplugs instead! And she continues to not be an impressive napper, usually going from about 1-2:30pm.
She's done remarkably well with the addition of Kate...once in a while, she'll ask us to put Kate down so she can be held, but generally, she doesn't show any jealously. She still loves to hug on Kate and asks to hold her all the time on her "shoulder" like we hold her.
I'll do a separate post on Kate later, but wanted to give Emma all the attention for once!
