Today is SJ's 2nd birthday. We celebrated, yesterday, with Elmo and some friends.
All about SJ:
Favorite Activities: Swimming, swinging, sliding (esp. if someone is at the bottom to crash into) and wiffle ball. She loves to go into the garden and pick whatever she can find (ripe or not, doesn't matter) and eat it immediately. Gives great hugs and will still snuggle up with me to rock right before a nap or bed.
Favorite show: Jack's Big Music Show or Elmo (these are our best chance to get her to watch TV... even then we are lucky if she'll sit for 5 minutes).
Likes: jumping, climbing, exploring, opening/taking things apart. She also likes her pacifier, dogs, toilets, the refrigerator, and my make-up bag or other little bottles (lotion, spices... anything "off limits"). Of course, she still loves music, dancing, and to do things "mysewf."
Dislikes: sitting still, help with getting dressed, brushing teeth, or getting her hair done. Is grumpy for a few minutes after she wakes in the morning or after a nap.
Things that make her laugh: "Animal" on the muppets (hooray for youtube), toys crashing, being tickled on her neck, tackling Mommy, chasing Clara, and hearing other people laugh.
Favorite foods: tomatoes, any fruit, pasta, olives, or any food being eaten by a stranger within her view.Her word that can multi-task: "Sowie" (can be used to mean shower, sorry, or sour)
We love our wild and crazy two year old!
