Kyler: 2.5 Years Old

26 Jul

Today, my sweet and crazy girl is 2.5 years old!  She is starting to seem less and less like a little toddler and more and more like a little girl. We have full on conversations at times and she is starting to help out around the house (SCORE!).  Every night at dinner I asked her what she did at school/Grandma’s and she tells me what she did and who she played with. It’s really cute. Lately, I have been asking her to help me with some small things like letting the dogs outside, letting them back in (which is so funny because she yells for them and they don’t listen), getting something off the table for me or putting her dirty dishes in the sink. It sure helps when I have my hands tied with her baby brother!

She loves to sing her songs, dance, do her ABC’s and can even spell her name now (and recognized it when it’s spelled out!), and counts t0 20. She is one smart cookie. For quite a while she went on a boycott and wouldn’t let us read to her but she has finally stopped that and we are reading again! Kyler has gotten much better about dinner time. We still have our struggles, however, it is much better than it used to be.

Bedtime is the pain right now. She tries to find every excuse to delay bedtime. Potty Training is not helping. As of this week, we are trying the “ignoring her once she is in bed” approach and I have to be honest, it is so hard. It’s hard when you hear her sweet voice asking you to cuddle but that is all part of her ploy. Once she has you you aren’t getting away. My mom even mentioned that although I was pretty slick as a kid she has me beat. The kids pediatrician asked me how Potty Training was going and I was going over some things and she laughed and kept repeating how I am in trouble and she is going to give me a hard time when she is older. Gotta love that independent streak.

Kyler is quite the little fishy if you haven’t noticed. She is swims SO well and LOVES the water. ISR was such a great decision and I feel so comfortable with her in the water.

She has quite the personality if you haven’t noticed already. She is super goofy and silly which makes for some funny times around our house. If you didn’t see, last week I started a new blog series called a life of a toddler and I will post those goofy things she says on there.

She is definitely slimming out. She is still wearing 2T (going on 1.5 years now) and some 3T things. I honestly think some things that used to be tight on her are acutally getting a little loose as her baby belly is going away. It’s like her feet stopped growing too. She is still wearing size 7’s.

Things she loves:

Movies, Disney, lions, puzzles, princesses, books, Hudson, airplanes, her park, swimming, ice cream, Pirate Booty, yogurt, grapes, applesauce, chicken

Kyler, happy 2 1/2 years old! Can’t believe you are this old already! We love you and watching you grow 🙂
