Heidi turned two a month ago but I hadn't managed to snap any official 2-year photos until this weekend - and even these were a bit of a challenge to get- she wasn't so into getting her picture taken. I couldn't figure out which was my favorite so here are a bunch.
This little girl is so much fun at two - she is parroting everything we say and it is about the cutest thing ever. She does have a mind of her own and it can be a (huge) challenge to get her to come around to your ideas sometimes but we love seeing her determination.
Her favorite saying of late is 'Mommy, watch this' or 'Daddy, watch this' or 'Allison, watch this.' she loves attention! She also loves her friends at schools - she knows all their names, the cars they ride in and who their parents are. I love pulling up and having her exclaim who is there, too. And the welcoming committee in her class is pretty amazing, too!
She is starting to notice things and put things together - we were at Chipolte after church today and they had OSU banners hanging - she saw them, pointed them out and exclaimed 'Go Beavs!' She also exclaimed 'Go Beavs!' while reading her 'Jamberry' book this week - the page with the band - I think she now associates bands with the OSU pep band (she does love the pep band).
She is now developing opinions about what she wears - but I'm still generally able to influence her. Her FAVORITE things to wear are the things that Allison declares 'match' her. She still adores Allison - and Allison is still an excellent big sister. Even with Heidi getting a bit more into everything.
She is still an excellent napper & sleeper - loves hanging out in her crib. Although she has started to master the art of delaying bedtime - asking to say 'Night, night, Allison!' about umpteen million times every night. She also still has her binkie but it never leaves her crib anymore so we're not too anxious to be rid of it.
Alright, I suppose I should share a few favorites: books, chocolate, Allison, snacks, school and Mommy (still a Mommy's girl).
We are so very blessed to have our little Heidi-bug in our family - she keeps us all laughing and on our toes. All. The. Time.
