Our 2 1/2 Year Old

Who really seems like she is 8. Lately she just cracks me up with the things she says and puts together. She understands almost everything and is always paying attention to any little thing that is said regardless if she part of the conversation. I have decided that this is probably going to be my favorite stage of life with her. She just is the sweetest, nicest little girl. (Don't get me wrong it is REALLY frustrating though, too.)
I was doing some spring cleaning and going through junk and she decided she needed all the stuff I was trying to get rid of. We may have a pack rat on our hands.
She found some amazing hot pink lip stick in the stash and needed to put some on. Does she not look like she is 4-what happened to my baby?
Speaking of growing up, she got a big girl bed! Ryan and I were so nervous about the change, but she is obsessed. She goes right to bed at night and still wants her usual nap. She starts to get tired and says she needs a nap and goes in and lays down. It was such an easy transition that I was dreading. Now onto the pacifier...that one is not going to be easy!
Loved this one how she is cuddling her Barbie. I feel so cozy for her. It is also so fun to get to see her sleeping since she now wants to sleep with the door open, I get to peek in on her (never got to before since she was such a light sleeper). So surreal to see them grow up but also so much fun!

This little girl came out of the womb as a teenager (without the attitude). Maybe it's because I had all boys, but I was amazed how early she wanted jewelry, clothing, shoes and anything sparkly and pink. She is the best natured and most expressive little girl. My favorite is her critical thinking skills. I love when you ask her for a turn at something in order to gain control and she replies, "no, maybe when you get little". What 2 year old thinks of that brilliant reply?!? I guess she's had enough of hearing "you can when you get bigger". Payback. Love her!

she's such a beautiful girl ... time just seems to gather speed, doesn't it? faster and faster. i'm happy the big girl bed was such a great transition for you. if only we could all be so lucky to have a great sleeper like yours! i'm seriously jealous.

i thought i read this and commented on her cute bed but now i'm realizing that might have just transpired in my head. it happens a lot. i also set my keys in fridge the other day so...

anyway back to the point, she does look older and so darling. i really can't wait to see what the next one looks like! and i want to see your cute belly! just wait till you see mine, i look like i should topple over from a strong breeze.

It's so nice to hear the bed transition was an easy one. Jackson is still in a crib and I am so nervous about moving him into a big boy bed. I just don't think he's ready yet (ok, maybe I'm just not ready yet...)
