2.29.16 – February Recap

29 Feb

Ready for a really random update? We tried to keep busy in February in an attempt to beat the winter blues. Laney had a lot of firsts: first time roller skating, bowling, and sledding! We asked her if she wanted to go bowling the other day, and she said, “I already did that!” Maybe too many firsts in one month makes her think there is an infinite number of new things to try. haha!

Our girl is almost officially 3 1/2! She is definitely the sunshine in our day. She makes us laugh with the silly things she says and the words she mixes up. Everything happened “yesterday” or will happen “tomorrow.” Her imagination has really taken off. She loves to pretend to get ready for school or that it is our birthdays so we can sing happy birthday. She also plays “daddy whale” where Kyle and Laney flop around on the couch and pretend they are daddy and baby whale in the water. She loves to be silly and laugh and is a happy girl most of the time. She is also starting to exert independence in wanting to dress herself and put her shoes on by herself (at least most of the time).

She is still in a phase where she won’t say hi to new people or people we haven’t seen in awhile, which is a surprise for us because she has always been outgoing. She still LOVES TV and movies, so we have to monitor her screen time. Go Diego Go, Daniel Tiger, Dora the Explorer, Inside Out, and Big Hero 6 are some of the latest favorites. She still loves everything animal and music related. She LOVES books and going to the library. And she is currently obsessed with her The Night Before Christmas pop-up book. Dance parties, playing with little mermaid or animal figures, play-doh, hidden pictures, dress up, playing with my jewelry, puzzles, and board games (Uno and Pop the Pig) are other favorite pastimes. She also loves holidays and keeps asking what comes next.

She is still a picky eater, but is getting better. She will try at least one bite of anything we ask. She definitely has a sweet tooth and loves chocolate and ice cream. Panera broccoli cheese soup, mac and cheese (shells), smoothies, and fruit are the current favorites.

Here are a few other random snaps from the month:

If you follow me on social media, you’ve already seen this. But our girl recently learned to spell her name, and she loves to do it all of the time! She is also really into spelling any letters she sees out and about. Makes me excited for her to learn words!

Finally, Laney LOVES “silly pictures” on Snapchat. Has anyone else tried the face swap? SO CREEPY!!

She can certainly test our patience, but we sure are blessed to have such a sweet, snuggly, happy baby girl! Love her so!
