My Baby Girl Turns 2!!!


Adeline Kate---2 Years

Favorite Foods---pizza, ice cream, all fruits, dried cranberries, noodles, peas

Favorite Books----The Great Gracie Chase, Little Critter books, all things Sandra Boynton, Where's Morris Mouse, Where the Wild Things Are, ABC books

Favorite Stuffed Toy---For a long time, this was her bunny, but that has recently been replaced by her sheep.  She's also very attached to a blanket that my grandmother crocheted.

Favorite toys---BOOKS, balls,  puzzles, her shopping cart, coloring, jumping house, anything with buttons that plays music

Favorite activities with daddy---Dancing, singing songs, being tossed in the air, hide and seek, riding on daddy's shoulders as he runs, general roughhousing.

Favorite activities with mommy--- helping mommy with EVERYTHING, reading books, dancing.

Cute SayBoldings---"I don't KNOW where it is!!!  I find it (looking under the couch).  There it is!"  "I love you too!"  "Where's Adeline?  I can't find her" (mimicking us playing hide and seek with her)  "No thank you, I don't like it."  "Go to church and sing songs?!?"  "Oh my goodness!!!"

Personality---very gentle and sweet, a rule follower (for the most part), able to rationalize and explain things to her, loves to cuddle, social

Recent things she's learned/ developmental milestones---Alphabet song, holds writing utensils appropriately to color, talks mostly in sentences, counts to 10, knows shapes and colors, improved abilities with puzzles, beginning to pretend.

Nighttime routine---Bedtime between 7 and 7:30.  Some nights mommy gives you a bath.  Mommy changes you.  You kiss mommy goodnight.  You are given your paci to sleep.  Daddy reads you books, prays with you, sings a song or two, rocks you, and lays you down.

Happy Birthday to Adeline! :) And such a good post idea. I should have done something like this...I can't remember half the things C liked/did when she just turned 2. It almost feels like a lifetime ago. How scary is that?!

Happy Birthday Adeline! I loved reading all about you! Last time I saw you your biggest verbal accomplishment was "grilled cheese." I can't believe you're talking in sentences already!!! :)

Happy Belated Birthday Adeline! I was just thinking "I think Adeline's birthday is coming up soon..." I was a little late I guess. This is such a sweet post too -- makes me even more excited to hang out with her again on Wednesday. Again, Happy Birthday girl!
