Madelyn: 2 Years Old


Dearest Madelyn Joy,

You are 2 years old!

Such a sweet, lovable girl. You are also very active with a short attention span! Very much a 2 year old.  But we wouldn't have it any other way.

You absolutely love your brother. If he runs out of Cheerios in the morning, you'll take some off your tray and put them on his. Always making sure he's taken care of and noticed.

Here are some of your 2 year old stats:

-You went to the doctor and weigh 28 lbs and are 32.5" tall.

-Still wearing size 18 month and 2T clothes. You are in size 5 diapers and size 6 shoe.

-You started up potty training again last week. You're doing pretty well. Some days are better than others. Only a handful of accidents, but that short attention span makes you not want to sit there and "try" for very long.

-You now have 12 teeth. A couple more are starting to push there way in as well!

-Still not talking very much. You sign and point at most things. We can understand you most of the time, but then there are times when we have no idea what you want. It'll come.

-Napping anywhere from 2-4 hours in the afternoon. Your typical nap is from 1-3:30pm.

-You haven't had many time outs this month because you decided to start loving on your brother instead of poking him.  A nice change!

-Your Mimi and Papa came to visit this month. They love you so much!

-You went to the zoo with Auntie H and loved every minute of it!

-Last week you had a fever and stuffy nose.  You seem to be feeling better; just a little cough lingering.

-Your 2nd birthday party was last night. Only a handful of people, but you loved all the attention!

-You still go to bed around 7pm. You'll wake up around 7:30-8am.

-You helped mommy celebrate her 29th birthday with some yummy pizza at Sparta's and a big cookie cake!

Happy 2nd birthday beautiful girl!!
