Oh Makayla! One more month and you will be TWO YEARS OLD! How is this even possible? I can’t even believe how fast this past year has gone by. I swear it was just yesterday that I was planning your Minnie Mouse Themed first birthday party!
You are the center of our lives. You are so funny and I love this age, but boy are they spot on when they named this age the “terrible twos”. The tantrums have officially started. Your sleep has regressed. You want what you want when you want it and there is no way around it.
I cannot have my phone in my possession around you because you try to steal it. Not for a few minutes, but you freak out when it’s time to give it up. You also like to face-time random people (like a kitchen design consultant) which is so embarrassing. And, no, I don’t lock my phone. It’s too annoying.
Not only do I have to keep my phone out of your possession, I have to hide my laptop, iPad, and basically anything electronic. You like to steal pens and write all over your body. You love pens but you hate crayons. Go figure!
I have to hide your Tricycle and Little Tykes car in the garage when we come & go in a hurry or else you have to play with them right then & there.
You can pretty much get into anything you want. We made you a blackboard wall in our dining room this month which turned out pretty cool!
As far as height and weight – I have no idea but I can only estimate. I think you weigh around 25 lbs. I have no idea how tall you are but you seem to be growing by the day. You wear a size 6 in shoes but again you are growing quickly. You are wearing size 2T clothing, but some 3T tops already.
You are still in your crib. This momma is not ready have you transition into a toddler bed yet. You learned how to climb out of the pack & play at Grandma & Papa’s house last week. So we removed the bottom from your crib and put your mattress on the floor. This should keep you from climbing out for quite some time. You have been in a mommy phase in the middle of the night. You cry and cry until I come in, and then you say “Mama nap” and I have to lie on your floor. Last week you were awake from 3:00 to 5:00 a.m. and then when we had to wake up at 7:00 to get you to school you said NOOOOOOOOOOO, and that you wanted to nap. You are wild, child!
We’re planning your birthday party for your actual birthday this year, March 9th. Your actual birthday happens to fall on a weekend again. We’re doing a charlie brown themed party, but doing it much more low key than last year.
We love you more than you know Makayla Jo!
I’ll leave you with a picture of Makayla modeling her Valentine’s Day Chunky Necklace from Masterpieces of Fun Art!
