Dumpty and green blankie.
All of her "ducks" in a row!
Food-I know this is a tough subject for a lot of parents of toddlers. It seems like as soon as they turn one, they should be able to eat everything like an adult right? Oh, and kids are notorious for being picky, right? I remember not long ago it was SO hard to figure out what to feed her because she couldn't quite eat what most kids eat. She was eating cheerios for breakfast and a little bit of fruit. Then she would have a snack that was basically the same. Then it was turkey lunch meat pulled apart into tiny pieces with a side of cheese and.....you guessed it, Cheerios! Well, the Cheerios part hasn't changed much! She is a creature of habit for breakfast. She ALWAYS wants cheerios which I pair with some fruit or yogurt. Other than that she eats just about anything including a lot of veggies and fruits. She generally won't eat beef. She has an occasional hot dog or some smoked brisket at a bbq place. She LOVES chicken (like her momma!) She also really likes turkey. We are still having trouble with traditional chips, but she can eat Cheetos without choking. I get the baked kind so I don't feel as guilty about her eating them. Her FAVORITE of course is McDonald's chicken nuggets and fries. And at our weekly trip to Freddy's, she is now getting her own custard. She eats pretty well for her age (not just quality but quantity).My girl is growing up!
Sloppy Joes has NEVER been a thing that she would eat...Umm, until this night at least!
So, we only have a month until she turns two. Our little girl is growing up! She is still a sweet girl. She still (for the most part) is a good sleeper (although it usually takes a lot of talking and playing in her bed for her to finally go to sleep). She is laid back and really just goes where ever we go whether it's on a vacation or to the grocery store. She does like her "routine" (hence the cheerios every morning). She surprises us each day with how smart she is! She seems to learn things quite quickly and has a pretty good memory. She can even tell us where we are going if we take a certain familiar route somewhere like church or the Y. Still can't believe that she will be two. So here is my 23 month-old and some of her favorite things.
