Izzy turns 2

Wow I can't believe it's been two years.  Izzy makes me laugh everyday. Here is some of her information

Stats-Weight-32 pounds (93%), height-36.6 inches (99+%) the nurse actually came in to remeasure,  and head circumference-20 inches (99+%).

Sleep Patterns-This summer she started climbing out of her crib, so she has been sleeping in a toddler bed since July.  She goes to bed at 8 and gets up around 8.  I love it because I sleep til 8 too!

Temperament-Typically she is pretty easy going. She loves to laugh and play. But she does not like to be told, 'No.' Depending on the day if she is told no she will have a full on temper tantrum.  She is sensitive.  This morning I was crying because I was thinking about Craig and how much I miss him.  She came in the room and said, "why crying mom?" She gave me a big hug, kiss, and wiped a tear away.  She is seriously the best for me!

Words-She has been speaking in sentences since this summer. Her first sentence was in June and she said, "I want eggs." She has always been great with words.  Some of my favorite are, "This is delicious," "Go Mom, I can do it myself," and when she says her prayers.

Foods-She loves pizza, quesadillas, grapes, green peppers, yogurt, cheese, popcorn, and juice.

Travel-She has been on 43 one-way flights.  Seriously, she is the best little traveler. Luckily I can't even think of a bad flight; she is an awesome flier. She has been to 17 states-some of the them are: Texas, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, New York, Florida, California, Colorado, and DC.

Personality-She loves to be with her friends. She is very outgoing and has a little spunk to her.  She knows what she wants and expresses herself very well.

Habits-A normal day for us: She eats yogurt for breakfast and talks about going to play with her friends during breakfast. Then we go to the gym and she plays with her friends. We get home play a bit, eat lunch and then she naps. After her nap we typically play with friends, go on a walk, or run errands. Then  Daddy gets home and the craziness begins. She loves when Daddy is home. We eat dinner, play, she gets a bath and is in bed by 8.

We love this little girl so much!! I feel so blessed to be her mother!

 She was so tiny, well I guess not really at 8 lbs 6 oz, but compared to 32 lbs now.
 So precious!
 Mike loves being crazy with her.
 She loved her little basket of toys.
 Still learning to stand.
 Izzy and Abi are so cute together.
 Her first Halloween
 First birthday.
 Izzy and Abi are so big now!
 Now she is into everything! Her favorite things are my clothes and shoes! My closet needs a door---it is always a mess thanks to Izzy. She pulls all the clothes off the hangers.
 The first summer we didn't worry too much about having a life jacket because she wasn't very mobile and couldn't get out of the boat. This past summer it was crucial.  She was crazy--trying to climb out of the boat!
Her second birthday.  Where does the time go??!!
