2 Months Home

Wow, I can't believe she has been with us for only 2 months!  It truly feels as if she has always been here.  Here are some things she is now doing:

  • can sign more, eat, juice, help, thank you (almost!), and drink
  • loves to play hide and seek with big brother
  • can wave bye-bye and blow kisses.
  • goes to bed at 9:30, up at 8:30 with a nap around 1.  This is going to change to an 8:00 bedtime because she will be getting up at 6:30 starting on the 25th!  ugh - please pray for me! :)
  • loves music - this girl is crazy for music.  She sings to me and is starting to dance. 
  • looks to us for approval.  She will do something and immediately look for one of us so we can tell her she did a good job. 
  • becoming more and more attached to her blankie for bedtime and nap time. 
  • loves to feed her babies.  She is also starting to kiss and hug them more and more.  We walk each night and she has started to take one with us. 
  • when she is mad - look out.  She will point her little finger at you and let you know just how mad she is!!  The other night Big T fussed at her and made her cry.  She came to the bedroom where I was at and proceeded to tell me that her daddy yelled at her by pointing her little finger toward the kitchen and jabbering away!  Too cute!
  • we can't seem to keep sippie cups around.  She takes them and puts them in the oddest of places!  In her little scooter seat, in the pantry, in the phone stand, in her closet, in the cupboard, who knows where else! 
  • she absolutely loves to be outside. 
  • she imitates everyone, including the dog.  When we go on walks we take our black lab KaCee.  KaCee has to mark her territory everywhere so she is constantly squatting to pee even if it is just a drop.  When we let Little T walk (she rides in her wagon for the most part) she will run over to the grass and stand there with her legs spread!!  She has also tried to eat the grass like KaCee does!!
  • says mamama,dadada,yayaya,gagaga, and a whole bunch of other that we love to hear!  She'll be talking soon, no doubt. 
  • still has a bottle just before bed.  I've started to make only 4 oz instead of 8 because that is about all she'll drink.  As soon as I'm done with this formula I'll put whole milk in it. 
  • she's chewing now.
  • has gained 1 pound finally!! 
  • has developed stranger anxiety.  When we first came home she would go to anyone but now will just turn away if someone tries to take her from me.
  • claps her hands and then puts her hands up for us to pick her up.  It's like she's saying "hey - pick me up now!". 


I'm sure there is more but I can't think of anything else.
