Favorite Books: She still rotates heavily between all of her favorites, which is probably why she has so many of them memorized. Lately, she's been going into her room and closing the door and reading her books by herself. We love occasionally spying on her through her monitor and watching her during quiet time. :) Such a cute little bookworm!
Favorite Foods: Still a popcorn head! She also loves applesauce and yogurt. I let her feed them to herself now and she is such a neat eater she hardly ever spills any! And of course, she has a major sweet tooth, just like Mommy & Daddy and will happily share ice cream with us whenever she gets the chance!
As I mentioned before, her vocabulary has exploded! She is talking in sentences now and has gotten so much better at communicating what she wants. Her teachers even commented on how well she is talking! Proud Mommy! :)
We took our first solo road trip together! We drove to San Antonio (about 4.5 hours) during Spring Break to visit G-Daddy & Nana! She did great! It was an easy trip and we had a fun time getting away for the week! She also conquered her fear of big dogs, as she became fast friends with their big black lab, Chuey!
She attended her first wedding! My cousin Collin got married to Sarah in Boullard, TX and we had a great time dancing and eating cake! Hadley also enjoyed knocking over the perfectly stacked pyramid of golf balls on the putting green next to the ceremony site. Ha! Oops!
She has been sleeping through the night in her own bed for the last week! I mean, I probably just jinxed it, but not having her join us in the middle of the night and hog the whole bed has been quite nice! We felt like we had gone back to the newborn days level of sleep for a little while there.
Her attention span has grown considerably! We can now get through about half of "The Little Mermaid" before she loses interest. Progress!
She got to visit her cousin Vivian over Spring Break, as well.... and boy was she jealous when her Daddy held another baby! I feel sorry for her future sibling! She is a Daddy's Girl to the extreme and apparently doesn't like sharing! Wonderful... :)
She is fast and likes to run away from Mommy! This has made shopping trips and daily outings so much fun, let me tell you.... Ha!
I can not believe that you will be 2 years old in just one months time! I feel like you just turned one!!! You are a joy to all who know you, sweet girl! I enjoy my time with you more each day, as I get to watch you grow up right before my eyes. Every milestone you reach, whether it be one we have worked on for months or one you just came to out of the blue, make your Daddy & I so very proud! We constantly are in disbelief at how intelligent you are for your age! And you're funny and beautiful to boot! Hard to believe that we are so very lucky to call you ours! We love you so much and will savor this last month with our precious 1 year old!
Happy 23 Months!!
