My baby is 2. She’s been 2 since February 16th but even after a few weeks I still can’t believe it. I took these photos on her birthday, in her party dress. It required the bribe of a lollipop which despite how much I strive to feed her healthy foods, she still loves candy a lot. I mean, she’s a kid so I get it.
Juliet’s daycare celebrated her birthday on Valentine’s Day. Her daycare provider asked all the children to go around in a circle and say what their favorite thing is about Juliet. One of the little boys said “she really loves candy”. Oh boy.
This is my last monthly update. I am so happy to have the first 24 months of her life so well-documented. From here I’ll probably do an update at age 2 1/2 and 3. I don’t want to think about it but I know it will be here before I know it.
There really haven’t been any big milestones since last month. The biggest change is mostly that she is just such a major talker. Every day I feel like she says a new sentence or phrase and I’ll look at Erik incredulously and ask him “where did she hear that? Where did she learn that?”.
Potty training is touch and go. We went through a major regression in the past month and just accepted it and didn’t push her. The past week has been better. Juliet understands the basics and in my opinion could be fully potty trained if she made the decision. She just hasn’t decided she wants to do it 100% yet. So we wait. At her 2 year dr. appointment her pediatrician told us that 50% kids age 3 are potty trained. I’ve never felt any pressure to get her potty trained but that was an interesting stat.
2 years is awesome. Juliet is such a wonderful little person. She has made me so happy and full in the past 2 years, more than I ever could have imagined. I just adore her more than anything in this world.
