But the crazy thing about Claire turning two is that I can’t believe she’s not already two! It’s probably because she has a big sister and spends most of her time trying to be big. I guess it’s working.
How do I describe Claire at two? I mean, other than just plain awesome. Because she is.
She is determined…and has a bit of a one-track mind (which means she will repeat the same thing over and over and over until she is absolutely sure she’s being understood).
She love love LOVES her big sister. After naptime, her first question is always, “Nana sleeping?”
She is the most polite toddler I have ever met. She will consistently say “excuse me” and “thank you” INDEPENDENTLY! It makes my heart happy every time.
She loves the hiking backpack, baby dolls, her bear, books, Georgie, and horseys (though just in theory, I think a real one would freak her out).
She will repeat anything you ask her to…which is really a lot of fun. My favorite phrases are “I got it,” “I did it!,” “Eeeeoooo inky poo.” (Pee-yew stinky poo…which I say to her every time I change her diaper.)
Claire, you are two! And that just seems so big and so little all at the same time. You are a delight and a joy to have in our family. I can’t wait to see what the next years bring!
PS So, we put her in a big girl bed. And she wouldn’t stay in. But it was the sweetest disobedience I’ve ever seen. She would go to the top of the stairs, stand there until we noticed her, and then say, “Obey?” We finally just switched her back into a crib. I just don’t think she was quite ready for the responsibility of a big girl bed. But I’m ok with that…I’ll keep my baby for a few more months.
