Happy 2nd birthday Lizzy!
Funny things she says:
While stuck in and trying to get out of a chair, “you can do it Elizabeth.”
“That's berry, berry spicy. We don't touch it, we don't eat it!”
"Maybe actually a different one please."
"Hot dang it!"
Things to remember about her at this age:
Took off clothes and diapers – naked in her crib
Got her first bloody lip while playing chase around the house with Mommy. She tripped on the edge of a rug and cut her bottom lip on a tooth. She's a tough little girl physically, she only cried for a second. (I say physically because emotionally she is a delicate flower, just like her Mommy :) I hugged her and made light of it saying she was okay. When she pulled away and say blood on my shoulder she said, “Oh no, lots of red!” She's never seen blood before so it was funny to me. I just explained we would wash it off, and that was that, she was over it.
Take a breath – When she's really upset crying, I tell her to take a breath and she does. She deep inhale and exhale and it calms her down. I'm still shocked that it actually works.
Discovered the Hide and Seek game on her own and loves it
Gives me one kiss on each cheek just like the French do
Sings herself songs
Loves to help me make pancakes
Thrives on being active and finding adventure
Independence. Has to put on her shoes, shorts, etc by herself
Imagination. Takes to her stuffed animals, gives them naps and has them dance
Dance parties with Daddy
Our sweet friend Rhonda taught Elizabeth the following nursery rhyme:
Round and round the garden,
Like a teddy bear,
One step, two step, tickle tickle there!
It has simple actions that she loves and the best part is that she says it in an Australian accent just like Rhonda does.
Loves her brother
