You turned 2 today!! Your habit of saying "almost 2" must now be changed! We are both excited and terrified with what will come this next year. We've already got an early start on the terrible twos as well as some potty training.
We've had so much fun seeing family this past month. You loved playing with your older cousins Cadence, Ainsley, and Xylar. Your vocabulary took a huge spike after spending time with them over the holidays.
You have learned how to pluralize words by adding an "s" to the end. You also know our 'real' names now (Matt and Bekah) and will use them if you hear us use them. You regularly say three to four word sentences now. You swap the subjects and verbs of sentences a lot, ex: "sitting mommy" instead of "mommy sitting."
We've upgraded to a plastic cover for your door knob since you figured out how to unlock it. This is the third time we've had to upgrade something in your doorway in order to keep you from wandering the house in the middle of the night.
We got a zoo membership, which you LOVE. We get to feed the giraffes, ride the train, and go on the carousel as much as you want, in addition to seeing all the other exhibits. This was a huge hit for your birthday today.
Your favorite toys are cars, followed by the hammer and plastic scissors you got for your birthday today. Your favorite series is "Chuggington," a show about trains that is on Netflix. You love to read, and our newest favorite series is "Elephant and Piggie" by Mo Willems.
