What I do these days!

I thought I would post a few things that Kylie is doing now that she is 2 years old. I wish I would have started doing this earlier as a reminder for the future, but better late than never! I can't imagine all the things that go thru her mind on a daily basis, but these are the things that she shares with us.

Some spanish words that she knows:
agua = water
leche = milk
ojos = eyes
frescas = strawberries
boca = mouth
narajanas = oranges

A funny story: For several days in a row last week, Kylie woke up in the morning yelling "agua, agua, agua" at the top of her lungs. I guess she must be dreaming bi-lingually!

Kylie can also sing her ABC's now and she loves to listen to "more Jesus." Our bedtime routine is to drink her milk, brush her teeth, and then we sit in the rocking chair to sing Jesus Loves Me and Jesus Loves the Little Children. She knows all the words now and will sing along with mommy or daddy. Then she says "pray" and we list off all her friends by name. It's so fun watching her grow her vocabulary and understand more and more each day.

We've just started learning our funny faces so here are a few that she is trying.

Along with turning 2, Kylie has definitely started to assert herself and what she wants. She will tell us "NO" whenever she wants to, she will throw tantrums when she doesn't get what she want, she hates having her picture taken and wants to immediately see herself after the flash goes off, she is delaying bedtime as long as possible with the endless "more Jesus song, more milk, more pray" etc, and everything else that comes along with this age. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for us. In the midst of so many tragedies in this day, I thank the Lord everyday for just one more day that I am able to be a mommy to this precious creation that He has given us. Being a parent puts it more and more into perspective how much God loves us and gave us His child as Jesus to be a sacrifice for our salvation. Praise God for His amazing loving-kindness.
