2.4

Is it just me, or does each month fly by faster than the last? I can't believe Mia's another month older! We made a quick visit to Utah last week and family/friends kept commenting on how much Mia's vocabulary has grown, how she's even smarter, etc since our move to Arizona just 2 1/2 months ago! I know I'm biased, but of course I think she's the smartest little girl there ever was! But it was so nice to hear those comments as they made me think that I'm doing something right and contributing to Mia's learning! Mia is such a curious little girl and can't get enough of learning! I love watching her little brain soak it all in!
This is Mia's "ta da!" pose... totally though it was appropriate to share on today's post :)
- I've really started to notice how much Mia remembers, and the fact that she can communicate her memories with me! She will tell me about "swimmin" from a few days ago- she'll mention who we were with and what we did while swimming. For some reason it just totally blows my mind that she remembers this stuff and TELLS me about it!
- Mia figured out how to escape out our front door. Exactly one month ago I heard Mia get super excited that the garbage truck was in front of our house. Suddenly it sounded like the garbage truck was actually IN our home... I peek around the corner to find that Mia unlocked the dead bolt and was standing outside. Que my freak out! I told Mia that was an absolute "no no" and we DON'T open the door... she innocently replied that she was just looking at the garbage truck, ha ha. She opened the door one more time before she took me seriously. If only we weren't renting... we would add a dead bolt up high! 
- She pooped in the potty for the first time. It was totally by accident but now I know why mom's talk about that crap... it's SO exciting, ha ha. She's only done it one other time but I haven't really pushed potty training. We are about to get serious about it though, so wish me luck!
- Mia got stung by a bee for the first time. This seriously broke my heart and reminded me why I hate bee's so much. Mia was a little dramatic about it, but I would expect nothing less from her. She is my daughter, after all :)  
- Mia can count to 10! Although most of the time it goes like this: 2 3 4 5 6 8 9 10! She loves to count and talk about numbers all day long. When I change her diaper she tells me, " ONE diaper!" etc. It's so cute to hear how excited and proud she is of herself now that she knows numbers!
- She said "Eric" for the first time... although she still hasn't made the connection that that's daddy's first name. Not sure how I feel about that since she's been calling me by my first name for months now, ha ha! I pointed out Prince Eric when we were at Disney on Ice and she repeated, "Ewic?!" That's the first, and only day that I've heard her say his name :)
- I'm mostly dressing Mia in 2T clothing, aside from her 9, 12 and 18 month dresses that she wears as shirts or dresses :) She wears a couple shoes that are size 5, but we've mostly moved to size 6 now.
- She still wears size 5 diapers- I'm curious to see how motivated I get with potty training, or how well Mia catches on, we'll see if she's still wearing diapers next month!

The most exciting news we've shared in the last month is that Mia's going to be a big sister, yay! I know there will be challenges with the huge change that is coming our way, but I have no doubt that Mia will handle it like a champ and love her role as a big sis!

She looks like she's singing a perfect A in an opera in that picture. I love her TADAAA!

Hoooray for poops in the potty ;)! Bummer about the bee sting, that's no fun!

<3 ya! Happy Monday!

So, I have a love/hate relationship with you doing these updates since Abbie is one day younger than Mia. Why are they SO big?!?

And yay for the potty! We haven't pushed potty training at all... mostly because I figure it'll be daycare potty training her for me anyway. Plus we cloth diaper, so I'm not buying diapers. One day we'll get there!

Potty poops are pretty exciting! Esp since that seems to be the trickiest of them all. I've been trying to get Aria to run to the bathroom when she has to poo even if to just poo in the diaper, so she gets used to the whole location. Fingers crossed for potty training!

Such a sweetie, I'm with ya, time goes by WAY too fast!

Jenn said...

Aww I love reading about all of her growth and progress into a bigger little being :) She definitely sounds like she has a lot of skills, and I love that her memory and personality are shining through more and more! :)

I just want to squeeze her! She is the happiest little girl ever!

That picture of her is so cute! Good luck with your little escape artist! haha

Brylee can open doors too-she has snuck out the the garage on more than one occasion! Isn't it funny the things we get excited about as parents?! Good luck with potty training-we may be attempting that sooner than later too:/

The video you posted on Instagram melted my heart last night! She's so, so sweet! Also, I'm terrified of bees and I'm 27, so I guess that's something that doesn't really go away.

Sarah said...

Poor thing! Aubrey has yet to be stung by a bee- I can't imagine how heart breaking that was for you! Ouch!

Lauren said...

she's so cute! the way their vocabulary changes around this age is still just mind-boggling to me!

And I know she'll do great with potty training...I potty trained Elyse at 2 years, 7 months and we did the 3 day potty training method. And it worked like a dream! I'm all about waiting until they are truly ready!

Aaahhh so cute as always. My girls were spaced about the same distance as yours are going to be. I just remember thinking as long as I don't have two in diapers, I'll be happy. Marissa finally potty trained with about 2 months to spare, SHWOOO!!!! Good luck dear! Happy Monday!

The months are flying by! I can't believe it's already been 4 months from when she turned 2! I feel like it was yesterday that you were sharing her birthday party. And to top it off, I can't believe my BABY will be THREE in 3 short months! Cue the tears now!

I saw the video you posted the other day and hearing her say I love you to you is just so sweet!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

So cute! Isn't is crazy how exciting poop in the potty can be? I never even knew until we started potty training recently. I hope once you start potty training it goes well, I"m sure she'll catch on quickly! We're on day five of it... so far and he's learning. I love how much she loves numbers, she's too cute!

I so get what you're saying about the potty thing. I used to wonder why people would mention it all the time, and then I started potty training Caleb and it was ridiculous how things like weeing on the toilet would literally make my day, ha ha! The things that motherhood does to you!
