52 project – a portrait of logan, once a week, every week, in 2014
just when i’m about to mention that my toddler’s gone crazy, like what i imagine to be the terrible two kind, she went and got all cute and well behaved on me this past weekend. so much so that we swam to our hearts content, ignored naps, ate french fries under the covers, and slurped popsicles and watched movies well beyond bedtime, all in an effort to savoir the weekend as long as we possibly could. damn, this kid knows how to lay it on thick! while parenting has become more interesting and definitely tests our patience as of late, we love this spirited chick even on her worst days. i look at all the moody meltdowns and lashing out tantrums as a girl just trying to find herself.
things worth remembering about 27 months…
she still loves books and these days i either catch her in front of her shelf surrounded by books or beside her babies in the womb chair reciting her favorite stories. without a doubt her current favorite is alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
she’s into eating apples and now requests snacks on her own. particularly chocolate bunnies and animal cookies.
gone are the days of the sleep sack. we’ve moved on to snoozing with a pillow and duvet.
however paci’s are definitely a big girl necessity. her words i swear.
she’s memorized how to spell her name and recites ‘l o g a n spells logan’ over and over all day long.
she knows the difference between her right and left hands and feet.
ice age was a huge hit and lo thinks manny is an elephant. however planes has quickly become her most recent go to flick. with harry potter as a close runner up.
we’ve officially started to administer the wicked time-out.
she’s into drinking water from an adult glass with a fancy straw. which quickly turns into a game of dunking and licking the straw dry while making a massive mess.
she’s suddenly become afraid of the vacuum.
she designates any ‘baby’ toys laying around as drue’s. and also makes it clear that ‘drue not my cousin, she my brudder.’
she knows that red means stop and green means go. and if we see a moving car in the street we have to stop and be careful.
she’s begun to imaginary play with dolls, figurines and the like.
she isn’t shy and warms up to anyone almost immediately. although she definitely has her favorites.
has started cutting her two year molars.
still sleeping like a champ. and extra long these days thanks to said molars.
