If I remember correctly, I started this blog to record my kids’ milestones. I feel guilty because I don’t think I’ve been doing that. So here goes.
Allow me to start with our little girl who turned two last May 19. She is 25 months as of this writing.
Oh the terrible two’s! I’m not going to lie. It has been extremely difficult. The Princess continuously tests our patience that sometimes, I feel like giving up on her already. I often find myself asking, “What did I do wrong? Why did she grow up to be so hard to handle?!” Then I hear her say “Oh gosh!” or count to ten or recite her very cute version of the alphabet… and everything is okay again. It’s like this every. single. day.
It is very exhausting, but at the same time, fun. Like I said, she has her cute ways of saying/doing things.
She recently learned to count from one to ten.
She also knows her letters, but with a twist.
A… B… C… D… E… Brush! (she still thinks that the letter F is a toothbrush)… G… H… Ice cream! (she thinks that the small I is an ice cream on a cone hehe)… J… Okay… EMEMEM… O… P!… X… Y… Z!
She says, “Oh gosh!” when she gets excited.
She knows how to wear her shoes.
She picks her own clothes. I let her do this despite how funny she looks. It’s amusing eh!
She sings along the Windows 8, Rejoice and Beam commercials (I should record her performance!). She also like singing along the songs of Club House Mickey, Hi-5 and Bubble Guppies. She even memorized some of the lines from the shows!
She gets giddy every time she hears Pink’s Just Give Me A Reason.
She can identify colors.
She is also now aware of time outs. Every time she doesn’t listen, we’d put her on a 5-minute time out then talk to her after.
Most important of all, she knows how to take care of her little brother. We are now able to leave them in a room together because our little girl knows how to (gently) play with her brother and calls us when her brother is hungry or needs to be changed.
We have a long way to go with this crazy little one — it’s going to be tough, but I’m sure it will be something we will all enjoy!
