25 Months = 2 Years + 1 Month

*Ladybug has learned that she doesn't get picked up until she says "up." (Previously, it was whining with her arms held up in front of us.) I am noticing that she is trying other words to get what she wants, for example at the store while riding in the buggy she said "walk." Try explaining to a 2 year old that she can walk after we pay...that's a tough one.

*She's really latched onto saying bye especially when one of us is leaving for work. But she's also learning that it can mean just going into another room and she'll say bye with a little wave. My favorite is when we're out and about and she sees something she knows. The conversation goes something like this, "Bird" as she's pointing to the bird, "Bye bird." Or fork, bye fork.

*She'll now try to say anything that you ask her to say. Sometimes we recognize it and sometimes not. She loves doing flash cards and saying what the pictures are. She also enjoys pulling out her basket of food and going through each piece naming them with a little nyom, nyom, nyom as she pretends to eat it. Oh, and she loves naming and pointing to all her body parts too.

*The temper-tantrum-twos have begun and it's crazy that most of them are just over the smallest little things. She definitely gets a little moody when something doesn't go the way she wants it to.

*Her love of music keeps growing and growing. She's learning more songs and will now sing along to several. Row, Row, Row your Boat is her current favorite and she'd prefer to sing that one all by herself. (When you try to join in she'll stop and say "no way."

*Ladybug is learning to undress herself, yikes. Three times this week at wake up time, her jammies were unzipped at least halfway.

*We are still waiting for her little hair to grow and it's almost to where we can put it all in one little ponytail. She weighs 24.5 pounds and is wearing 18-24 months clothing, size 3 diapers, and size 4 shoes.

You can see last month's chair photo here. I think her hair's a little bit longer.

I love this little Bug. She is growing and learning so much. She is such a blessing.

And yes, children grow up too fast and learn at lightning speed! both good and bad things. Their character is affirmed ...... through your story I imagine .......

She will be going to school and then to the prom before we know it. She will be the smartest kid in class. We love the way she is picking up words and their meaning. Mimi

Yep...definatly sound very close! My Kate is 23 pounds, 18 month clothes, size 3 diapers. And is taking her clothes off too :) Her vocabulary sounds similar also.

Oh...she's in a size 4 shoe, too, although we have 6-12 month pediped's that she still fits in (3 pair!)
