As of about a month ago, we have a two year old in the house. This particularly two year old is so hilariously cute and funny, and we just don't know what we would do without her. I wish I could video record every single moment, but I can't, so here's the latest with sweet D in words and pictures.
Enjoying a fireside chat with Dad at La Madeleine.
Taking in some light reading in the car in an outfit she selected completely on her own. I usually don't give in to such, but it was Mardi Gras break so you know.
We celebrated her birthday with a few friends at Indulge, one of our favorites. We enjoyed pink frosted wedding cake cupcakes, pink and green macarons from Sucre in New Orleans, and Tahitian vanilla marshmallows. The girls played on the playground in Parc Lafayette for a little while afterward. It was a very "sweet" second birthday.
D invested in her first set of wheels, and I am proud to say that her dad assembled the car for her all by himself! She LOVES this car, but she hasn't quite figured out how to "go" in it. She really just likes to get in an out, pretend she is driving, and honk the horn.
I don't usually like to post diaper pictures, but these are just so darn cute that I can't help it. D owns two "t-shirts," and she loves them both. She frequently requests either her "pink shirt" or "blue shirt" instead of real jammies. She is also very prissy about her hair, and, MUCH to my delight, insists on having a bow in at all times because she really dislikes her hair in her face.
She also loves to play with my accessories. As you can see here, she has fashioned a new way to wear an infinity scarf, and it's quite catchy if you ask me!
In other news-
-she loves to sit in my lap, which she calls "Mommy's cwap," which sounds an awful lot like something else.
-she has added boiled crawfish to her extensive list of foods she likes. Strangely, she still does not like fresh tomatoes. I don't blame her, but it seems like something she would like. The girl can take down some fruit.
-She is a great helper in making muffins as she takes care of putting in the muffin liners. She is also pretty good about taking things to the trash and dirty clothes to the laundry room, but I won't like- she doesn't ALWAYS do it when asked. Just most of the time.
-When she sees a second of something, she says "another one" as in "another one lemon"
-And in the same vein, there is either one of everything or five of everything
-She is still very, very bossy and often bosses her classmates around even once we have gotten home. Needless to say, we know who the hitters, biters, and climbers are in her class.
-She is so very motherly and loves to change her babies' diapers, put them to bed, feed them and carry them on her hip. She is very open minded in terms of the types of babies she finds acceptable and has taken under her care stuffed amphibians, marsupials, felines, primates, rodents and of course humans.
-Every single day she says or does something new that surprises us and makes us laugh. She picks things up so quickly, and she is positively a parrot. We have to be really careful about the things we say. She has been to Meche's Doughnuts maybe three times, but she knows it when we pass it. (She calls doughnuts "doughmans" right now) She also knows where B's office is even though she has only been there a few times as well.
That's all I can think of for now!
