Well I haven’t written a monthly update about Kyler in quite some time but I figured 2 years old would be a good time to update you.
She is such a big girl now. She has her own little personality is definitely a spunky kid. She is SUPER independent and has a mind of her own. She will only do something if she wants to do it, which can make our lives interesting at time 🙂 She tells you “No, don’t want to” and good luck trying to talk her into it. She is very quick to tell us what she wants to do or eat, which again, is fun when you would really like her to eat something else 🙂 She is going through a pretty bad “I hate all food” phase (minus yogurt, applesauce, and grapes…. those she will take anytime). Typical 2 year old I guess you can say. We got some new tips from the doctor that we will start trying out so hopefully that will help.
She talks, a lot, and is so smart! She knows her ABC’s, counts to 10 and is getting better with her colors. If an animal has a certain sound they make, this kid knows it! Her favorite things right now are her stuffed animals: Star Bear, Brown Bear, Puppy, and Baby Puppy. She sleeps with all of them tucked under her arms at night and knows when one of them aren’t there. Put that with blankie, lambie and an elephant and she is surrounded! She loves rocks. She collects them outside and lines them up and counts them. She loves to sing and DANCE… still loves to dance! After she is potty trained, I am going to look into some type of dance or activity class because I think she would really like it.
Speaking of potty trained, we are about to head down that road here in the next few weeks. She is definitely ready and tells us when she needs to potty, she is just scared to do it.
Oh, have I mentioned that she gets into EVERYTHING. I mean EVERYTHING. I know most people would say this but honestly, I think she rivals most kids. She can’t just let something be. She has to touch it, get it out, try it, etc. It drives us nuts too. She has this “try me” attitude (she mayyyy have gotten that from me, oops) and tests our limits every step of the way. If we ask her “come here please” she hauls butt in the opposite direction. Ask her to leave something alone? Well she is getting to it even faster. It’s a lot of work but it keeps us on our toes.
Kyler Nicole is definitely a ham. She is shy around people she doesn’t know well or if there is a room full of people but after she warms up, she likes to show off. She is such a goof ball. She is constantly doing things that make Chris and I laugh and then says “I’m funny”.
Last but not least, she is such a sweetie!!! She will go from pushing your buttons to the sweetest thing ever in about 3 seconds. She loves hugs and kisses, tells us she misses us and loves us, and I can even get an occasional snuggle from her still. She is still great with please, thank you, you’re welcome and is now getting better with saying I’m sorry. She was telling people “no, bye-bye” if she didn’t want something but we have taught her to say “no, thank you” instead. Much better! She kisses my belly and tells her baby brother goodnight too. Pretty much the cutest thing ever.
