Lizzie at 2 Years and 3 Months (almost)

You never think you could love your child more than you do when they are born and yet somehow you do. Although we are firmly ensconced in the terrible twos, Lizzie never ceases to amaze me. At a little over 2 her language skills are amazing. She speaks in full sentences using nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions and pretty much everything else. Most of the time her sentences are correctly structured as well including the use of both present and past tense. She can count to ten and even knows a couple letters.

We weren't sure what to expect when we brought home Alex and Emily but she has shown nothing other than love to them. We have to keep a close eye on her when she is around them because she is still a 2 year and not completely coordinated but she has never intentionally tried to hurt them. She entertains them whey they are upset and loves to hug and hold them. I can only hope this continues as they get older and start stealing her toys!

Lizzie is a big animal lover. She will watch any movie that has animals in it, some of her favorites being Finding Nemo and Ratatouille. I thank Pixar on a regular basis for making movies that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults over and over and over again. As much as she loves to watch movies, she also loves to read books, particular Eric Carle books. Right now we are reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle and The Very Lonely Firefly. We have also recently read The Very Busy Spider.

She is definitely going through a clingy phase right now and I have spent much of this summer carrying her around. I think this comes with her age but I'm sure my being home on maternity leave, spending more time with her and having the twins around have contributed to it. She can be shy when introduced to a new situation however it only takes about 10 minutes for her to get over it and soon she is joining in on the fun wherever we are.

She definitely lights up the room and our life with her blond hair, blue eyes, red lips, adorable voice and vivacious personality. I can only hope that she continues to be a confident child who clearly enjoys life and shows it with a contagious laugh.

She is adorable. Our little ones have exactly the same spacing. I so hope that Bo is good with the girls... It's all going to be quite the life adjustment.
