365 x 2!

I officially have a two year old. Tear. It makes me sad in so many ways, but at the same time we are loving this stage she is in now. Her personality is so fun and she is so smart! She is becoming independent more and more each day. We are loving being her parents and are so thankful she gave us the title 'mommy' and 'daddy'.

We went to the doctor the day after her birthday. She weighs 26 lb and 8 ounces. Her head is in the 90th %. Big noggin for a big brain! The doctor said she was perfect...we agree!

She can count to 11, knows her ABC's, and all colors. She knows how to spell her name and can name a few letters (M, A, E, F). 

She feeds herself, drinks out of a big girl cup, and knows how to take off her jacket and put on her shoes by herself. 

She LOVES books: to read to herself and to be read to. She will turn the book like her teacher to show us the pages and she licks her finger to help turn the pages too. Maybe shew ill be a teacher like her mommy!

Her favorite words or sayings right now: "oh my goodness!", "thank you", "I watch Mickey!", "Love you!", "This one", and "My do it!".

She LOVES school and enjoys going. She is so proud of her craft each day and gets beyond excited when she sees me there to pick her up. By far my most favorite part of the day!

Her bed time has slowly been creeping back in the past few months. She is consistently sleeping from 7:30/8 to 7:30/8 the next day. 

She is still in her crib until we get Maggie sleeping consistently through the night and all of us on a good schedule. Once we go on 2 trips in April and May we will switch her to her big girl bed. She loves her afternoon nap ranging from 1.5 hours to 3.  

Her laugh gets us every time. It is so genuine and such a good belly laugh. Everyone comments on how great her laugh is...we love it!

Her friends include: Jackson, Kate, Paige, Molly, Isabeall, Avery, Ellie, and facetime buddies are Scarlett and Jane. 

Mae is obsessed with finding the pictures and videos of herself on our phones and watch them over and over again. 

Mae has one million baby dolls and loves playing mommy to them. She has 3 strollers that she uses ALL the time, ALL 3 of them. She changes her babies diapers, bathes them, sings to them, rocks them, burps them, and has become quite the little mama. 

Her eyes are the prettiest hazel and her hair is really lightening up! We love "pontytails" and piggy tails! 

Mae still loves our dog, Eli. She plays with him, yells at him, and enjoys helping her daddy feed him each weekend morning. 

She is still a pretty good eater. She loves hummus and carrots, turkey pepperoni and turkey hotdogs, fruit, raisins, yogurt and oatmeal, and her favorite food is hashbrowns from chickfila and popcorn. She still only drinks water and we just switched her to 2% milk. 

Wearing size 4 diapers. Hoping to potty train this summer. Wears size 6 shoe. Just recently grew out of 18 month clothes and is wearing 24 month for the most part. 

She LOVES her grandparents and has a special and unique bond with each of them. She loves her Nonna, K-pa, BB and Bup!

She LOVES to feed the ducks in our neighborhood and play outside!

Mae loves to color, paint, stamp, use stickers, you name it! She loves any kind of art! She loves to help me clean up and sings the clean up song. She loves music! We sing all day long and dance to music, too!

Mae is a daddy's girl but loves her mama too. Whens he is hurt she wants her mommy. We so enjoy our days together, especially now when Maggie is sleeping. She gets the most excited when daddy comes home from work. Her special time with daddy is bath time and bed time. She has him wrapped around her little finger. 

Mae loves her new role as big sister. She kisses on her sister, play with her, sings to her, talks to her and loves to help get her diapers and wipes for mommy and paci for Maggie. The first thing she asks for in the morning is "Moggie" and last thing she does at night is kisses her goodnight. 

We had such a fun birthday party with our girl at our house on her actual birthday Feb. 25. It was a low key Pizza, Painting, and PJ's party! We had her closest friends over and had a great time before it started snowing! Such a fun way to end her birthday! 

Mae Mae: I still can not believe I am a mommy, and especially to you, such a special little girl. I am so thankful God chose me to be your mommy! Thank you for making our day brighter, our smiles larger, and our laughs constant. Maggie is so lucky to have you as a big sister and learn from you! We promise to guide you, teach you, love you and help you always! 
Thank you Jesus for our baby girl!
