Here's the low down on life with this two-and-a-bit year old:
Juice boxes are a hot commodity around here. She was happy with apple until I recently introduced berry, now it's ALL about berry. Oops.
Eating is touch and go, and I try to remember she'll eat when she's hungry. And she does, she just doesn't seem hungry all that often...
Dancing. My girl likes to dance and she likes to dance often. Tonight we listened to the Beatles and cut a rug before bathtime:)
Toopy and Binoo. Over and over and over and over. She loves that little cat and mouse. I think they're a little weird.
She's got the gift of gab. Particularly when when Jason and I are trying to talk to each other. She'll systematically raise her voice until she is literally screaming overtop of our conversation, and we're forced to stop and pay attention. It's actually pretty cute, even though sometimes I just want to finish my sentence.
Lately she has been a real mama's girl. It's been a treat, but I'm prepared for the pendulum to swing back again and am just enjoying the extra snuggles while I can.
By the end of the week, Juliette has definitely had enough "school" (daycare) and I'm feeling like my decision to take on a full time job (compared to last year's four day work-week) may be a little too much. Hopefully I'll be able to work out something more balanced in the long run.
She loves Gaga! She's been on a real Lady Gaga kick ever since I played her a youtube video of a live performance of Bad Romance in Montreal. She even tries to imitate the dance moves and sing along to the chorus! I think it's the outlandish costumes and green hair that has her smitten. And the catchy tune, I suppose.
She likes cozy snuggles. Getting cozy under the blankets with a story or to watch an episode of Binoo is very popuar in our home. Juliette will often say, "Mommy, come get cozy with me." Melts me into an itty bitty puddle every time.
She can actually play with other kids now! Not just alongside them, but WITH them. And her absolute favourite playmate is hands down her cousin Lila. Cause, you know, Lila is four and like super cool.
I'm finding that two-years-and-a-bit is probably the most fun of all the 'stages' we've passed so far. (even if it can be a little exasperating at times:)
