  • Army crawling everywhere!
  • Can get up on her knees and rock back and forth
  • Started solids.  Her first food was sweet potatoes.  Since then, she’s had avocados, oatmeal cereal, zucchini, banana, and pumpkin.  She seemed to like avocado the least.
  • Left her for the first time overnight.  She stayed with my parents for two nights while Mr. Crunchycake and I went to my friend’s wedding
  • Got her ears pierced!
  • Left California for the first time – we went to Hawaii!
  • Sits in a booster chair for feedings
  • Was falling asleep with little assistance from us for most of the month.  After our trip to Hawaii, though, she’s been needing some help.  She’s also been waking up more often.
  • Went back up to Northern California for a visit with her grandparents.20130910_100512
  • Weighs about 15 pounds at the end of the month
  • Is wearing 6 or 6-9 month clothing
  • Babbles quite a bit
  • Is very active – likes to hang upside down from my lap
  • Pulls her sister’s hair and likes to play with mine.  Often she’ll hold on to my ponytail while we’re walking around
  • Likes to watch songs with finger play
  • Loves to watch her sister.
  • Smiles and laughter are over-the-top amazing.

 

Miss K at 31 Months

  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARead her first sentence: “Jim Jot has a job” – Yay for Clifford books!  Is getting faster at reading but is doing a lot more guessing now
  • Has gotten really good at doing puzzles.  This month she did multiple puzzles a day.  The biggest one is 48 pieces
  • Says Lightning McQueen is her friend
  • Is still an alligator and says she wants to be an alligator princess for Halloween
  • Loves popsicles, even the ones I made at home
  • Fights getting her hair combed every.damn.day.
  • Loves to see her sister.  Even asks to see her if Super S is out of her sight.  She was in the middle of an unusually horrid tantrum when we were in Hawaii and we showed her some stickers to see if it would help calm her down.  Through her tears and hysteria, she stops and while hiccup/sobbing, says “This one’s for Siu Siu.”  Even in her darkest moment, still thinks of her sister.  Her dad and I cannot find words to express how proud we are of her or how beautiful we believe her soul to be.
  • Is getting her 2 year molars (which we believe helps to explain the above tantrum)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  • Likes play-doh.  Especially enjoyed playing play-doh with her Aaji
  • In the last week or so, has started becoming ok with us leaving her room while she’s awake and falling asleep on her own.
  • Loved the beach and the pool in Hawaii.  The beach especially because she could play in the waves AND the sand.
  • iPad activity of choice – watching Disney’s “Cars”
  • Has been pretending to make plates of food with her magnetiles and serves them to us.
  • Doesn’t mind rolling her Minne suitcase when traveling
  • Still referring to her loved ones as “My mommy,” “my daddy,” “my sia,” “my aaji,” “my dadi,” etc.
