I have a 2 1/2 year old...

Today Avelyn is 2 1/2 years old....next up, turning 3! I'm not ready for a 3 year old, then it's going to be 4, then 5, then moving out :'(

I decided to put together a little post today to keep track of all her 2 1/2 year old achievements.

*Wearing 2T or 3T clothes, depending on the brand.
*Weighing in at 31lbs and measuring 36.5" tall
*For the most part she sleeps through the night, unless she has a bad dream or a cold or something...even if she is up at 6.30 or so...yuck!
*Yea, we do, on occasion, have to deal with bad dreams

*Still have the George (pacifier), but only in bed.
*She peed on the potty once...that was it. She's sat on the potty a few times and tried, but really has absolutely no interest in using the toilet.
*She absolutely loves being outside....if she could live there, she would, especially on the slide.
*She's wearing size 9 shoes.
*Our bum genius 3.0 one size diapers still fit
*Ave now says Grace for us at meal time
*Forget about complete sentences, this kid could probably narrate a full-length novel now

*She seems to have discovered "imaginary friends" in the past week or so
*Can count to 10, and sometimes higher; can recite the alphabet
*Sometimes can pick out letters
*Knows her basic shapes, but draws a blank on colors
*Her hair is half-way down her back, and is the color of spun gold...it actually glistens in spots..amazing
*She can get some of her shoes on herself, socks are another story, but she can certainly strip down naked faster than anyone I know
*Puts her clothes in the hamper

I'm going to keep adding to this list as I think of things :-)
