Kyla at 28 months

Since I don't do monthly updates for Kyla anymore, I thought I'd do one today when she is exactly 28 months.  She is at such a fun age right now.  Although we have many tantrums and a few timeouts here and there, she is constantly making me laugh and doing things that just melt my heart.

Here are some of her stats:

Weight: 32.4 pounds
Height: I haven't measured her, but she was 35 inches at a year old so I'm sure she's a little taller than that
Diaper:  Size 5
Clothes:  She is a solid 3T.  Some of her summer t-shirts are 4T just because I don't like them short and I figured they would shrink up a bit.
Shoes: Size 7

Here are some of her favorite things:

~She still loves to play ball.  I definitely think she will be an athlete.
~She loves to draw with pens and occasionally gives herself nice tattoos.
~She is doing swim lessons every Sunday and is enjoying them.
~She loves taking baths.
~She loves being rocked before bedtime.
~She loves being outside.
~She loves to draw on the white board with markers.
~She loves riding in her little car that my mom got her.
~She loves to play on the iPad.
~She loves riding her tricycle even though she can't peddle yet.
~She loves playing in the basement.
~She would stay at the park all day if we let her.  She LOVES the slides.

Here are some other things she's been up to:

~She has quite the temper.
~She has a nervous habit of picking her lips.
~She is obsessed with teddy bears and has to sleep with all 5 of hers.  Plus two babies, one puppy, two blankets and a pillow.  It is one packed crib!
~When she sneezes, she throws in a couple fake ones at the end because she likes when you say bless you.
~Her fake sneeze is a nice, loud "Ah-Foo!"
~If Kase coughs, she will fake a cough.
~She is still an awesome sleeper.  She never fights going to bed at 8:00 and sleeps until 8:00 in the morning.
~When you ask her something that you know she knows the answer to, she tells you what ISN'T.  For example, if you ask her how old she is, she will hold up one finger and say "No!"  If you ask her where the giraffe is on her place mat, she will point to the lion and say "No!"  If you ask her to get some socks, she will point to her underwear and say "No!"  I have no idea where this came from.  She thinks it's pretty funny though.
~She likes to climb into Kase's walker (as seen above).
~She loves to dance and make her teddy's dance.
~She gets mad at night when we say Daddy is going to put her to bed.  She yells at us and says "No, your turn!" while pointing to me.
~She has a major fear of bees.
~She scolds me when I go downstairs to change the laundry without her.

Dear Kyla,

I can't even put into words how much joy you have brought into my life.  You are the sweetest little girl and I love your random hugs and kisses.  You like to just come up and hug me and say "Aww".  I love watching you take care of your teddy's and babies.  You try to take care of your brother just the same.  You give him kisses every night and are always making him laugh.

You are always amazing me with how smart you are.  You can remember something after just being told once.  You love to learn new things and get so excited when Mama is so proud.  You still aren't quite ready for potty training.  You like to sit on the potty, but haven't actually gone on there yet.  I think once you go on the potty the first time, you will get trained very quickly.  You want to wear your big girl underwear and your diapers are annoying you.  But we just need to get you to go on the potty that first time so you know it's ok.

I'm so excited for all the fun things we have planned for this summer.  Thank you for being my little helper.  I am so lucky to be able to spend every day with you and Kase.  Your daddy works hard for us to be able to be together.  He loves us so much and we are very lucky to have him!

I love you sweet girl.

Love, Mommy
