We have been having lots of fun with our little 2 year old lately. She loves to explore everything and is so full of life. About a quarter of the time I am in a state of panic as I look up and realize what she is getting into (or onto). A week or so ago I told Lil to go to her room so I could change her dirty diaper and I got distracted doing something else for a moment or two. When I finally got in the room I was shocked to find her atop her changing table playing with the wipes and singing to herself. She was so proud of herself and told me “ I climb, mommy!” Even more shocking was when I was done and she climbed down the way she came up with no trouble at all.
She also provides us with tons of laughs as her vocabulary grows and as she tries more and more to copy what we say.
She was sharing a Fudgsicle with Clark and I asked if she wanted to help me with laundry. She told me “No, I eating chocolate”.
During church she’ll try to escape and says “ I’ll be right back, ok?”
I asked if she needed to go potty and she said “ um, I think…not very much.”
(As a preface- we DO NOT spank our child. Lil just thinks it’s funny to “get” each other’s bums) Clark told lily he was going to spank her bum and she said “No, I don’t want to spank your bum. I want pistachios.”
Of course there are many, many more things she says that make us laugh but this is all I could think of at the moment. I sure love my little girl and what comes out of her mouth .
Last weekend we had a picnic at a duck pond close by and Lil had a blast! More than anything she loved throwing rocks in the water. Luckily her aim is so bad and her arms weak enough that she came nowhere near to hitting any birds. We also met up with Clark’s brother Dean since we hadn’t seen him in a while. After sharing her room with him for 8 months, Lily is very find of him and asks about him all the time. The pond is right next to a little airport so Lily also enjoyed watching small planes fly by every few minutes and I think we’ll definitely go back there again. Amazingly enough I even got Clark to agree to be in a picture with us…
One of Lily's other discoveries recently was my make up bag. She had a good chunk of time with it before I found her and clearly had a very good time. As unhappy as I was that she got into my things I must say I was proud that she was using correct placement and put the concealer and mascara in the general area of her eyes, as they should be .
