Having a toddler is certainly different than taking care of a baby. And while it has presented all kinds of new challenges, there are parts of it that I absolutely adore.
~She flips through her books to find pictures of dogs. When she finds one she starts barking and brings it to me to show me.
~She loves her antennae headband from her Halloween costume so much that she has been wearing it all week. It goes great with pajamas.
~She mimics everything I do. This includes pretending to scrub the floor, wash dishes, dust furniture, and go shopping.
~She gets really upset while I dry or brush my hair if she doesn't have a brush as well to work on her own.
~She will still snuggle in bed with me in the morning to nurse.
~She has an expanding and extremely cute vocabulary that includes: mama, dada, up, baby, and bread.
~She is figuring out some sign language and likes to the sign for "more" whenever she wants something to eat or drink.
~She's learned that shaking her head side to side means "no". She likes to use this one while she does something she knows she's not supposed to do!
~She's learning how to get dressed and undressed. One day she walked up to me, handed me her shirt, and went back to playing in just a diaper and pants. She will also find my tank tops, put her head through the arm holes, and walk around really proud of herself.
~She is soooo ticklish and loves being tickled.
~She loves giving hugs and kisses that melt my heart.
