Happy 2nd Birthday!

Monday, November 14, 2011

Has it really been over a month since my last post? So much going on. Preparing for her birthday, for the arrival of Baby J, Halloween, and all her friend's birthday parties! Her 2nd birthday party was a memorable day for her. She blew out her candles, and now wants to blow out candles every time she has cake. She played with her friends. She enjoyed opening her presents and playing with all her new toys.

She is now a bonafide princess. She knows all the Disney princess names, wears princess costumes all the time, and loves everything princess.

She loves stickers again. I thought she grew out of that, but got back into it, especially Disney princess and Tinkerbell stickers.

She has learned how to ask for specific (mostly Princess) things as gifts. Since Christmas is around the corner, we've been telling her to ask Santa.

The terrible twos are still raging, and I'm growing less patient as my belly grows more outward. I've had to seek some parenting support just to make sure I'm not going crazy.

But she's singing a lot more, talking a lot more, improved her fine motor skills (better coloring, arts and crafts, helping me mix stuff when I'm preparing meals), and playing make-believe a lot. I want to get her out to where she can run and climb more. She still has a lot of energy, and it's been too cold and wet to go to outdoor parks. So I'll probably start taking her to the indoor play gym at the mall or something like that.

Halloween was one event after another. Trick-or-Treating at a couple of different malls/shopping centers, a Halloween play date, the pumpkin express train, not to mention giving candy out at home. But that was a memorable time for Bel, too. She loved seeing all the other princess costumes and getting all the candy.

I still look at her, mostly when she's sleeping, and am amazed at how she still resembles that newborn that we brought home from the hospital 2 years ago.
