Letter to Lizzy- Twenty-Two and Twenty-Three Months


Dear Lizzy Girl,

I can hardly believe that you're almost two. I know that I say that I can hardly believe how old you are every month, but this time feels especially crazy.

You are wearing a combo of 24 month and 2T clothes. I still don't think you've quite hit 30 lbs yet. You're still rear-facing in your car seat, except on certain occasions when we have to go somewhere in your dad's truck--and when you *do* get to forward face, you love it. You always request that we "rock out" with you. On a couple of occasions, you've thrown major tantrums, because you want to see a pink (or blue, or white) car next to us. We've tried to explain that we don't have any control over the other cars on the road, but I don't think you're quite getting that yet!

You continue to say hilarious things almost every day. For example, the other night you were doing an Advent craft with Papa Gary that involved coloring on a board. He had been telling you and all the other kids all about the board, what was going to be written on it, what it meant, etc. Anyway, when you decided that you were done coloring, you ran around the corner with the board over your head and yelled, "Mama! I'm board!" which, of course sounded like "I'm bored!" and got a huge reaction, so now you say 'I'm board/bored' often.

You've also continued to talk about babies a TON, and want one in mama's belly very badly. the other night you said, "Pray baby in mama's belly. Blue hat." I tried to explain to you that mom is a little sick right now and needs to be better before I can have a baby in my belly, but you just looked at me very sternly and said, "I pray baby."

Lately, you haven't been playing with a lot of your toys, but you have been really into coloring. When I'm coloring with you, you'll often take a crayon of your own, scribble right on top of what I'm coloring, and say, "Here. There you go!"

You're not completely potty trained yet, but you're getting there. You're asking more and more often to sit on the toilet, and are having pretty good success with actually going as well. I could probably do a better job of letting you wear real underwear around the house, but things have just been kind of crazy lately! Maybe we'll tackle it a bit more in the next couple of weeks. I'm not worried about it!

I love you sweet girl, and I always will!
