Yesterday Annabelle turned 22 months. I cannot believe she is getting so close to two! The outfit she has on is one of my favorites that I got on clearance at Target. Annabelle really likes to wear my jewelry and she had gotten this necklace this morning and so I just let her wear it around for a while.
Adelyn is always close by your side Annabelle and I think you really enjoy having someone around that is always admiring you. You are beginning to learn to share your toys. Most of the time I say, "You can have a turn for a little bit and then the baby gets a turn and then in a few minutes you can have a turn again" and that seems to work for now.
Mommy LOVES to fix your hair but you do not like it at all and so you have to be watching Dora or Miss Patty Cake for mommy to fix your hair.
Dora is your all time favorite show right now but you also like Miss Patty Cake and you have a new obsession with Elmo.
You still carry your Bear almost everywhere but you sleep with bear, cookie monster, and elmo. You must have all three to go to sleep. When you are ready to go to sleep for nap or at night you say, "night, night" and we know you are tired. You still take your bath at 7:30 every night and are in bed by 8:00.
We have started taking you to McDonals and the parks to play on the playground because you really enjoy sliding these days and have just started sliding down the big slides! You are such a big girl!
You are such a girly girl. You enjoy all kinds of jewlry, makeup, clothes, and shoes. You are still in 12-18 months clothes and weigh exactly 25 pounds. Your favorites are brocolli, bananas, starwberries, blueberries, peanut butter, eggs, cheese, all kinds of bread and crackers. You ask for candy probably 100 times a day. You sleep 12 hours every night and take an hour to a three hour nap every day (and mommy is so thankful!)
You talk all the time. Yesterday we took Adleyn to the doctor and you said doctor at least 75 times while we were there. You try to say anythingwe ask you to say and you are now putting two words together. You know most of the letter of the alphabet, as in, if I point at them you can say what they are and you know your colors and some shapes (although circles are your all time favorites!) We love it that you can talk to us now and we can understand each other better; it makes life a lot easier for mommy and daddy.
I can't beleive you are going to be two so soon! I'm not ready for that but I am very excited about planning your birthday party! Annabelle mommy loves you so much and is so glad that she gets to spend every day with you! Happy 22 month birthday!
