Caity’s Latest at 27 Months

Here is a little insight to our ever growing little miss sassy pants.

She is talking in 3-4 word sentences, can answer questions, and for the most part pronounces words correctly. The few exceptions are manna (bananna), gwenguin (penguin), and top it (stop it). One of my favorite things she does right now is lifts her pointer finger saying “wait” to go and get something. It’s hilarious to witness especially with her sass behind it. She will also always say, “hi Mom or hi Dad” when she walks into a room. If we are on FaceTime with them and both Rob and I are not in the picture she will say, “mommy go? or daddy go?” Some of the cutest words and phrases she is saying right now are love you, hi, Parker (in a sing song yelling voice), have it, no like it, and huggles.

She is laying down for naps on her own but still wants one of us to hold her hand until she drifts off to sleep at night. She has a bedtime routine that she strictly enforces. Quite play, brush teeth, stories (Jungle, Paw Patrol, Frozen, and then Gorilla), then tuck in with her baby and hold hand.

We have pretty much stopped using the stroller. She goes in the cart or I wear her, love my Tula. She is no longer using a high chair or booster seat. Most days I throw a diaper in my purse or forgot the diaper bag all together. She can drink out of a normal cup if necessary but prefers her Sassy sippy cup.

Favorite Song: Little Piggies (during every diaper change, with both feet)

Favorite Show: Paw Patrol and Bubble Guppies

Favorite Food: Anything brother is eating

Favorite Activity: Huggles and playing chase with brother

Favorite Toy: Hands down her baby doll, a very specific one

She is hands down our little dare devil and LOVES carnival rides, going fast, and climbing high.

 

 

Caity’s Favorites at 26 Months

Since things are a little crazy here getting ready for Thanksgiving I thought I would make this months update a little easier and share some of her absolute favorites at the moment.

Dushi Doll Stroller  |  Skip Hop Jump Backpack  |  aden & anais  |  Pop Up Jungle  |   Corolle Baby Doll

She has been inseparable with her baby doll and loves pushing her around the house picking up little things she finds here are there. Anytime we go out she also likes to bring her backpack filled with goodies. It’s cute watching her go around the play room and pick out what she wants each time.

She is currently loving bed time routine including shower/bath, brushing teeth, reading stories and having me lay next to the crib and hold her hand. Her absolute favorite book right now is Pop Up Jungle. Ironically enough I had purchased this book back when I worked at TRU. Apparently I have good taste, lol! She also loves cuddling up with her blankets at night. I got the set of 4 so that we could rotate them more often however, she has different plans and requires 2 to sleep with. I’ve tried to give her the slip at night but she will look at me and say, “two peas”.

Two in “School”

Parker had his meet n’ greet on Wednesday and his first official day was today. He was so excited to make new friends and eat his lunch at school. He has been talking about this for months and I can’t wait to pick him up and hear how his day went. My closest friend made him a notebook that we can write in each night all about his day. I am excited to start this tradition to be able to look back at in the years to come. No tears were shed by either of us, I think we were both ready for this!

Caity isn’t technically in “school” yet but that is what she and Parker call it. We ended up finding a wonderful in home daycare with lots of animals and other kids for her to play with. I am so excited for her to play with other toddlers and get some time away from momma. She is only there a few days a week so she will also get some mommy one on one time which she hasn’t had yet.
