So this is a little late, and lacking in photos, and shorter than normal, but it's here so that's all that matters! I'm cutting myself some slack seeing how we just made an international move with two little ones and we're just starting to settle in. Riley is 27 months old these days, and so incredibly amazing! We're finally settling in now to the US, and she is absolutely loving it! And loving Bailey too...
It's hard to keep track of all her new developments at this age. She is learning more and more songs and memorizing more and more books each and every day. I need to learn some more songs to teach her, I'm all out of new ones!! She absolutely loves to sing, and sings all the time. She also is very specific about what songs she wants, and will say "no, that's not the right song, how about this one? _____" if I sing the wrong song to her. She still adores Minnie Mouse, but also loves Sesame Street too. She loves dogs and fruit snacks, kicking things and doing puzzles, and reading book after book after book.
She is such a little jokester these days. She loves to purposefully say the wrong things and wait for a reaction, and go "nooooooo!" and laugh at her own "joke." For example, she will say "A B C D E F.... K! Noooooooo!" She also loves to tell stories and play pretend with her little "friends" (Mickey, Goofy, and Donald figurines). She likes to feed them and talk to them, tell them stories, and put them to sleep. She buckles them in her car seat and tucks them in at night.
She adores playing outside, running around, jumping on trampolines. She still needs me to lay with her to fall asleep, she sometimes skips her naps, and more often than not, wakes up in the middle of the night and comes into our bed. She adores her baby brother and wants to play with him and snuggle him and kiss him all the time. Her hair is wild and curly and she does not like to brush it or put it in a ponytail. Which is why it looks like a big ball of tangled curls 90% of the time.
There's so much more, but I think at this point it will get included in her 28 month update. :) Now... on to Jackson's 8 month update next... I can't keep up with these two!
