A glimpse into our crazy life

A’s 2-Year Update October 25, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — emilyandfrank @ 10:11 pm

This beautiful girl is now 2! Here’s an update on what she’s up to these days…

-Alaina definitely likes being independent and doing things on her own (which is both awesome and frustrating!).

-At her recent doctor’s appointment, she weighed 27 lbs 2 oz (57th percentile) and was 33.5 inches tall (40th percentile).

-She talks in full sentences and sometimes strings several together.

-This girl LOVES to sing! Most days, she wakes up singing. Throughout the day, she’ll randomly burst into “Wheels on the Bus”, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or a dozen other options. Just this past week she has started to sing along to music in the car.

-She can correctly identify all her immediate family members by picture.

-Alaina can count to 20 and list the days of the week and the months of the year. She can also count to 10 en espanol and spell “boo”! She’s really improved at identifying colors and shapes over the last few weeks.

-Her current favorite foods are muffins and waffles. She’s also obsessed with BBQ sauce, a trait she inherited from her daddy.

-She’s obsessed with zippers, Micky Mouse Clubhouse, and Sesame Street.

-She’s inquisitive and is constantly asking “What doin’?”

-She can be kind of bossy and has been known to put other kids in timeout at daycare.

-Alaina can’t quite pronounce her own name; she calls herself “Nina”.

It’s been a wild 2 years, Alaina, but we love you so much and love being your parents!

    Gosh, she’s a cute one!! She’s a smart cookie, too! Wow. She knows a lot of stuff. Did she learn a lot at her daycare or are you teaching her all this on the weekends?? Guess I should start on Eliana’s spanish now….:)

    I CAN’T WAIT until our kiddos are back together again. I bet Kendall and Alaina will entertain each other for hours with all of their joint knowledge and questions (Kendall’s favorite is, “what this?” for every item in the entire house). Can you believe how much your lives have changed in 2 short years? Such an awesome and amazing wild ride . . . .
