Your personality is exploding with energy and excitement. Your vocabulary is almost keeping pace, and you’re starting to string words together to express all of the thoughts running through your head.
The following is what occurs in a given hour of your busy life.
Play soccer, left foot only
Eat 1-2 cups of yogurt
Squeal at Greta to get her riled up and running circles
Ask to play upstairs, pout when denied
Point to top of fridge and ask to eat vitamins
Escape outside barefoot and run a lap around to the back door
Grab the face of a parent to get them to pay attention to your words
Open the fridge to find more yogurt or grapes
Take off all of your clothes and diaper to talk about your “peepee”
Read the same picture book a few times
Complain when Eliza took a toy out of your hands
Grab a parent by the hand to guide them to whatever you think is interesting
Climb on the toilet to play in our bathroom sink; eat 1-2 tablespoons of toothpaste
Snuggle your Mom or Eliza on the couch or our bed
Climb up a parent to hang upside-down
Ask Echo to play the Frozen soundtrack or “Elmo Slide” to dance some sequenced moves
Pretend to be a frog and hop around saying “wigget”
Scream “bird!” upon seeing a bird out the window
Ask where Froggy (your pacifier) and Rocky (your stuffed raccoon) are as a signal you’re ready to nap
I often stop to reflect on just how fun and interesting you are. You have so much ambition and confidence. You also got your first haircut this past month and I’m not the only one to stop and say how handsome you are. You, like me, noticeably improve with a good haircut.
Swagger, smarts, charm and looks are a good combination to get more ladies than your Mom to pay attention to you. Keep it up.
