Two Years Old!

Our sweet girl turned two years old earlier this month! Since this blog doubles as her baby book, I wanted to document some things that I want to remember about her at this age:

  • She refers to herself in the 3rd person as "MayMay" - which is her version of her name. She has essentially given herself a nickname because almost everyone now refers to her as MayMay.

  • Favorites
    • Songs: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, Toes". She requests these almost every night when I'm rocking her.
    • TV: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and Yo! Gabba Gabba
    • Music: anything by Laurie Berkner

  • She tells Kip "No no, bad dog!" anytime he walks near her when she has food.

  • She loves books, baby dolls, and playing outside (especially swinging).
  • She is loving the swimming pool this summer. Last weekend we took her down the big twisty water slide at the pool, and she loved it. She'll stand on the edge of the pool and jump to me. She counts "free, two, freeee!" before she jumps.

  • Her expressive language has exploded in the last 6 weeks. She's consistently saying 2-3 word combinations and beginning to say 3-4 word full sentences. The first sentence I can remember her saying is "MayMay eat more nee-noo (noodles)."

  • She can recognize and name colors and is beginning to recognize a few letters. (Finally, a benefit to having a Mama that monograms everything - she can recognize the letters M, C, and A!!)
  • She recognizes most animals and can imitate their sounds.

  • She always wants to know people's names - mostly her friends and their parents - and then calls them by name.

  • She loves to help around the house. Some of her favorite activities are feeding Kip, gathering up laundry to put in the basket, and unloading the dishwasher.
  • She is wearing 18m clothes and size 5 shoes. I think she's around 22lbs and 31". I'll update with official numbers after her 2 year Dr's appointment. Update 6.27.2014 - She is 22.5lbs and 31.75" tall. The growth chart predictor thing has her adult height at 5'1".
