You are 26 months old today.
Me and Mama and Lucy and Daddy are going to the park.
What are you making for yourself, Mama?
I want some pumice. (which is your word for hummus)
I want my Nana!
You sit down right here Lucy.
Have I mentioned your bossiness yet? You’re quite bossy. You have definite ideas about where people need to sit, what I need to be doing at any given moment, what books are an acceptable choice for story time, what you would like to eat, etc. etc., ad nauseam.
You have so far enjoyed all the birthday parties but you completely cracked us up at Arnav’s. You were totally into Mr. Singer for the first part of his program, venturing onto the dance floor and paying close attention to the music
We hit a milestone in the hair department—piggy tails! You aren’t nearly as excited about them as Lucy but you will humor me on occasion and leave them in long enough for a picture.
Another big leap forward this month is your ability to amuse yourself for longer and longer periods. You will play on your own for up to 20 minutes on some days. Your favorite things to play with this month are your dollies, the train set, the pizza set and a fabulous tent and sleeping bag that Ms. Laurie and Mr. Jeff sent you two. It has provided many hours of entertainment for both of us as I sit and listen to your endless discussions with your dollies in the tent.
