Wowsers, I can’t believe in 2 more months we will have a 2 year old! Each week she definitely does seem bigger, older, and wiser. I am pretty sure a lot of you know what I mean when I say…sigh…it is both exciting but so sad at the same time. I’m not ready for our little Payton-Pie to be 2! One this is for sure, she is becoming her own person with her own spunky personality. So…what is she up to these days?
–She never stops talking. Never ever. We definitely have to watch what we say a lot closer because she picks up on it quick! The other day she ran up to her basketball goal and while slamming the ball in said “Kareem!!!”…wonder who she got that from?!
–She is the sweetest…She says “I looove you!” and I L.O.V.E it! Each night I sing to her, lay her down, and tell her “I love you!”. Now each nap and night as soon as I finish singing she hugs me and says “I loooove you Mama” before I even get a chance to say it and it melts my heart every single time.
–She is so caring. I told her “Mommy doesn’t feel very good today Punkin, my tummy hurts” and then she curled up on me and said “I sorry Mama”. Once again, heart melted.
–Even with all the loving and caring going on…wow she is also a crazy tantrum throwing toddler! The craziness almost always outweighs the sweetness, but it sure does make life interesting!
–She has molded to the picky-toddler-diet plan. She has learned to say “I doooon’t like, different!” meaning, I hate this, get me something different yo! Even when we give her a plateful of what she wants, only about 30% of it gets eaten. Chubby baby legs are a thing of the past…sigh.
–She is sneaky! Whenever she wants something she’s not supposed to have, say, Daddy’s chips she says, “Please Dada, one chip?” and of course that buys her a chip. Then a minute later she walks over with her baby-doll, “Please Dada, Gabby one chip?” hahaha, how can you resist that cuteness? Then of course she pretends to feed Gabby for .2 seconds and into her mouth it goes. Two minutes later she walks over with a different baby-doll! “Please Dada, Marsha one chip?”. And this goes on and on and on and on until she has gone through every baby-doll and stuffed animal she owns!
22 months is exhausting! But we are loving every minute of it! Happy 22 months Payton-Pie!
