Madelyn: 2 1/2 Years Old


Madelyn Joy,

Baby girl, you are 2 1/2 years old.  We cannot believe how old you are.  You are becoming such a kind, sweet little girl with a little bit of sass :)

Weighing around 28lbs and 34" tall

You are a little OCD like your momma.  Everything has to be picked up before leaving a room.  Guess momma taught you right.

You are becoming so kind and nice to your little brother.  He'll hand you toys and you say, "thank you, bubba".  So so cute.  We love to watch you two interact together. 

You love to "hold" bubba.  Which means hug and kiss.  Sometimes it's still a little too rough for him, but you sure do mean well.

Talking up a storm, kiddo.  Repeating everything we and anybody else says.  So many new words.

You always request "daddy's song" when we're in the car. It's Forever Reign by Hillsong.  It's on a mix CD momma keeps in the car.  We guess you heard daddy playing it on the guitar one time and now it's forever..."daddy's song".  You'll repeat the words in the verse and attempt to sing the chorus.  We LOVE hearing you sing praises to God and to want to sing them!

Your favorite foods are pizza, mac and cheese, applesauce, yogurt, puffs, cookies (tookies), ice cream, apples, carrots and cheerios with milk

Taking an afternoon nap everyday from about 1pm-3:30/4pm.  Lots of times bubba wakes you up when he gets up around 3 and you don't go back to sleep.  You go down around 7 or 7:30pm at night and wake up about 8am.

Before bedtime, we read books, your bible, sing songs and pray.  You'll repeat after us when we pray.  Trying to teach you early! 

You love to color and trace around your hand.  You also enjoy puzzles, reading books, singing songs and dancing. 

Your favorite shows are Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,  and Little Einstein.

You love going into your Sunday School class at church.  You hear about Jesus,  sing songs, play games and puzzles and play with baby dolls.

You start your 1st dance class next week.  We'll see how you like it!

We love you so much little goose!!

-Mommy and Daddy
