Developmental Explosion

In the past few weeks, Riley has:
  • learned to open doors
  • taught herself to somersault
  • pooped in the toilet
  • figured out how to open the fridge
  • learned about a billion new words
  • shown an avid interest in cooking and dish washing
  • learned to use her bubble gun (pictured below. sort of.)
  • mastered monster tantrums
  • drawn a straight line, pointed to it, and said, "One!"
  • figured out that daddy's cereal (Cocoa Puffs) tastes better than hers (Kashi Mighty Bites)
  • developed a strong preference for clothing with sparkly embellishments
  • become extremely particular about her diapers (Elmo Pampers vs. boring white slightly bulky cloth diapers...)
  • gotten really fast
Part of me is sad she's growing up so fast. A bigger part of me is so relieved she won't be a toddler forever.

How exciting and completely awesome that she poops in the potty. I'm working on that with Eyrlin....never fun!!

Two is one of my favorite ages because of all the developmental explosions. Three kind of sucks.
