Haddie: 2 year update

Dear Haddie,
At 2 years old...
  • You weigh 26 pounds, are 33 inches tall and wear 2T clothes (sometime still 18-24m because you're very petite)
  • Your favorite foods are cheese, crackers, pizza, pepperoni, baby food pouches, bananas, waffles, cheerios, yogurt, fruit gummies, and carbs.
  • If you see me with a Coke you whiiiiiiiine and whine and whine until I share with you
  • You don't run, you prance. Sometimes I call you Fancy Prancy.
  • You are finally doing better about dropoffs, you only cry occasionally at church or school
  • You sleep like a teenager. You have been sleeping from 7:30-8ish and take a 2+ hour nap ever day. 
  • you get VERY jealous when I'm holding anyone else, including your brother. If you're on my lap and he tries to join us you push him off 
  • You are finally leaving your ponytail/pigtails in, yay! For a few hours at least, and then you pull them out
  • You don't like for me to mess with your accessories. Coats and shoes must be left on at all times (including at school)
  • You walked around the house drinking out of your sippy cup and spitting it on the floor. It is so gross but you think its hilarious. You also like to dump your yogurt shake on the table which earned you your first (and only) real spanking 
  • You are pretty athletic. Not only are you not scared of many things at the playground, but you seem to run/climb/slide pretty easily!
  • You love babies and point them out wherever we go, but you pronounce it like the French word, Bebe, which is so adorable
  • You love finding my lip gloss or Chapstick so you can pucker up while and have me put it on you
  • You only get your pacifier for sleep or the car and as long as you don't realize I took it away, it doesn't usually seem to bother you
  • Your favorite toy is the water table outside
  • If you find dog poop in the yard you will squish it in your hands (GROSS)
  • You carry a purse around with all your treasure in it (usually a pacifier, lego baby, and a cell phone)
  • Brother picks on you sometimes, but you've learned how to milk it. Even if he barely or accidentally runs into you, you start whining like he hurt you really bad
  • You are in a real "mommy's girl" stage. You only want me to hold you and you cry if I even put you in the carseat and don't climb into the driver's seat immediately

Sometimes I just look at your Daddy and say, "look how adorable Haddie is! I just can't get over it!" But it's true, your sweet little dimple and big blue eyes frequently catch me off guard when I see you smiling at me in the rearview mirror. Grandma Susie says you like to "keep us busy" which is a sweet way of saying you are into everything! Which is true :) But that is one of my favorite things about you, how adventurous you are. It's pretty rare to find you a) bored or b) afraid to try something out. You will follow Titus around and do everything he does and more! And if you fall down, you usually just get back up and keep going. Plus you are very easygoing and rarely get demanding (unless you want your pacifier, then you are ruthless), so for the most part, not much seems to bother you. We love you to the moon and back, baby love!
