Its been a while again…. How about an update!? lol
1.) How old today?
2 years, 2 wks and 3 days
2.) New milestones/ talents/ achievements?
wow there are many. busy with some of the last teething (I hope). Potty Training going very well, except she still wont poo in the loo…
3.) Favourite toys & favourite things to do?
She discovered Barney and Teletubbies just before her 2nd birthday, she loves that! Mommy not so much, but at least I can convince her most days to watch Shrek… 😉
She’s starting to play more dolls – calls them her baby’s, and she feeds and rocks them…
She’s started ‘singing’ Vissies in die water & twinkle Twinkle little star are favorites (sure she cant keep the tune lekker or know the words, but she tries!)
She loves my phone & iPad – she’s a wizz on those things, knows exactly where she’s “going”.
Imaginary play also coming on well!
4.) Current words?
More like sentences! She is a little “pappegaai” (and tells you that), she repeats everything as you say it. And she gets it all right, even with some english inbetween! Maybe its just me, but she seems to be quite ahead of the other kids when it comes to talking. Saves us some tantrums, cos we can chat about what she wants etc.
5.) Favourite food and snacks?
She loves chips nowadays, anything meaty (chicken, mince, chops etc), pasta at times, veggies not so much, Chocolate a Big favorite (daddy’s girl). She’s got a book with pictures of animals etc and there’s a fishy in – not allowed to eat fishies, although she doesnt mind fishfingers!
6.) How is toddler sleeping at night?
Still Good! Goes to bed between 19h30 – 20h00, sleeps until she hears us in the morning 06h30 weekdays, 07h00 on weekends *bliss*
7.) Day naps?
Only 1, for about 2hrs. at school its after lunch around 12h30, at home mostly late afternoon 15h00-ish,
8.) How many teeth – and how are teething issues going?
17, seems another set of molars are emerging. Bottom left already out. (had a lekker fever just this weekend thanks to the tooth!
9.) Weight and length?
As per Paed on her 2yr check up: 11.2kgs. No idea how tall she is (cant get her to stand still so long..lol)
10.) Clothing size and shoe size?
Wearing from 6-12 to 18-24mtns clothes, depending on the cut/brand and how optimistic mommy was when she bought it… Shoes bought size 5 or 6 for winter. Woolies are some of the few that stock the toddler size 6’s…
11.) Recent toddler ‘highs’?
Saying “ek is lief vir ….” although the first time she said it, it was to the cat…
12.) Recent toddler ‘lows’?
Hitting while ‘playing’… Tantrums of course, at least its not all the time, but I try to ignore it and just walk away… (which is hard)
13.) What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
We are going on our annual holiday beginning of Sept, Jessica will get to meet her Great Grand Ma! 🙂
14.) How are mommy and daddy doing?
Very well. Mommy signed up for “BootCamp” I call it Booty Camp, where you get your Booty back! hehe 🙂 Sofar so good, enjoying the exercise although Im mostly last with EVERYTHING and SLOWER than everyone else – Im not there to be the best or make friends, Im there to do the best I can and make everyone else look good in the process! LOL Signed up for the 2nd one already. Nice to do something for myself! Goal is to loose 10kgs before we go on holiday – optimistic? Perhaps – but I will try my darnest!
