My sweet Piper is TWO years old now, and is growing into the sweetest, sassiest little girl. She's so spicy, and although it's hard at times, I love her independence and stubborn nature. I'm trying to teach her to share, be kind, be quick to apologize, to forgive, and to love, but also I'm loving all these natural personality traits she has that are coming out.
She is SO smart and chats 99.9% of the day. I love having conversations with her, and listening to her express what she is thinking and feeling. She has to say bye to everything she sees whenever she leaves a room - so it's a long list of "bye lamp. bye shoes. bye chair. bye water" whenever we go anywhere haha. It's the best.
She LOVES drawing and colouring, and begs me to draw "tiny socks" all day long haha. I honestly have no idea where that came from, but I'm getting really good at drawing socks.
She is still the messiest eater I've ever come across. It's unreal. I hoped it was just a phase, but it doesn't seem to have improved so...yippee.
She LOVES Jack. Like really, really loves him. She requests to see him as soon as she wakes up, and aggressively kisses him all day long. Whenever he cries she says, "OH HONEY!", and strokes his head over, and over again. She is so compassionate, and whenever anyone is sad, or whenever I hurt myself, she drops everything to offer a hug and comfort.
I started potty training her a few days before her second birthday, and she has transitioned SO well! She picked it up quickly, and made it so easy on me. I think she owed me from all of the poop massacres I've cleaned up from her taking off her diaper during nap/bedtime. Don't worry - it's only happened 10 times. She just wears diapers for naps and at night now, and takes herself to the potty during the day. It's so nice only changing one baby's diapers now.
She's definitely entered the "terrible twos", and is probably one of the bossiest kids in town, but I love her to death, and I am so grateful for her. She brings so much happiness to my life, and I can't wait to continue watching her grow and develop into a little girl.
