As usual, I’ve now gone months without writing or reading. Sorry guys…I just don’t know where my days go! Bella is go, go, go all the time and trying to clean or do laundry is about impossible when the girls are awake so I have to spend the time they’re sleeping doing everything instead of doing the relaxing I’d like to be doing.
So where are we at 2 yrs old? Her physicality is ridiculous. This girl can do things and has arm strength like I’ve never seen before in a toddler. One of my daycare families got her her 1st leotard. Their oldest daughter is a team gymnast so we’re going to to open gym with them one night so H can work with her.
Language is still lagging. She says a lot more words but unless you’re around her all the time, you probably wouldn’t know what she says half the time. Her attitude and sass often gets the point across though.
Words you can understand: cookie, candy, chip ( notice a pattern, lol), hi, bye, please, thank you (tanks), truck, Daddy, mommy, side (outside), Shark (for baby shark) and moo (foster baby…moo is part of her nickname). She is just starting to say love you and blows lots of kisses for bye bye.
Bella is a terrible eater when it comes to anything healthy( takes after her mama that way). Apple cinnamon fruit pouches are her favorite thing in the world right now so at least that’s halfway healthy. She still loves bottles and formula and often steals Moo’s so she’s going to be ticked when that goes away in 2 weeks, lol.
Bella is a mix of a little sugar and lots of sass. She’s determined, tenacious, stubborn and refuses to listen. Hopefully, these qualities will someday help her make her dreams come true. Right now, they just make mommy’s hair even more gray and lead to a lot of frustration for both of us.
All in all, I can’t wait to see what she learns over the next year! Hopefully, listening will be one of them. 😂😂😂
