Lolo - 23 Months!

Sweet Lo,

You are 23 months old!  I can't believe you are going to be 2 next month!  It seems like just yesterday that you were born, but I also can't imagine what life was like without you.  We just love you so much and adore watching you grow.  You are such a smart little girl. You speak in complete sentences, that are 5-6 words long and everyone comments on how well you speak. 

You love to sing your favorite songs, especially in the car.  You love Five Little Monkeys, Ring Around the Rosie, Happy and You Know It, ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle. You love "Lolo's iPad" as you call it, and watch the Five Little Monkeys video on youtube over and over.  You are so silly at times and I catch you watching TV like this...

When you get a boo-boo you love to blame people for it. 

You are obsessed with popsicles and fruit snacks, and now suckers thanks to the long road trip we took to Florida.

We have a little raised garden and you like to go with me to pick the vegetables.  Then you immediately want to eat them.

You love little shopping carts and if you see one in Target or any other store you push them around the entire store placing things in your cart.  Recently when we went to Target, you found a little shopping cart, pushed it around the entire store and when we got to the makeup isle you kept picking things up and putting them in your cart, saying "lets buy it."  It was pretty funny! 
You still love playing with all of your cousins.  I love that you will be so close to all of them!  So much fun!

You started calling us "mom" and "dad" occassionally.  We don't like it and correct you everytime.  Haha!  It's "mommy" and "daddy."

You sure say some funny things...When we were on vacation you woke up from your nap one day and started talking about the dogs.  I think you missed them.  For breakfast one morning you told me "I want yogurt. Booster seat.  Come Mommy."  You also asked for popsicles, corn, and pizza one day for breakfast.

Some funny phrases you have said this month:

"I painted my toenails."  "Mommy ponytail is so pretty." "Watch your fingers."

"Lo did you poop?" "No, I tooted."

"I got a booger mommy."  "Yay Lolo." "Scratch your back."

"Good job mommy."  "All clean."

"Where'd dip it go?"

You love playing in makeup. 

We took you to Big Splash recently and you were a little timid.  Maybe you will like it next year.  Some of the little kid slides were still just a little too big and too fast for you. 

We recently went on a little family vacation to Seaside, Fl and you had a great time!  Unfortunately, the day we got back you got sick with a not-so-fun case of Hand, Foot Mouth. 

You were able to meet Cinderella at a little boutique where we live and even gave her a hug. 

You still weigh around 23 pounds. 

We sure do love you little girl!  You are just so sweet, smart, and funny!  Not a day goes by that we don't pray for the sweet blessing you are.  I can't believe we are about to be a 2 year old.  In some ways, I just don't want you to ever grow up, but in others, I just LOVE watching you grow up and learn so much.  There is no greater experience in life thus far, than to watch you grow and thrive and become the sweet little girl you are.
