My BABY is TWO! There are, of course, no words to describe how much we LOVE this amazing baby!!! But she hasn't been reminding me a lot lately of how much I love the age of two. She is so much fun and so dang funny and surprises me every single day with the new sentences she says!
She is OBSESSED with sucking her two fingers. The other night she was fussing at around midnight and she NEVER wakes up in the night so I ran in to see what was wrong. Her nose was stuffy and it was really prohibiting her finger sucking and making her so mad that she couldn't comfortably suck. Thankfully I just had to hold her upright and she was sucking again in no time.
Her two favorite things are showing off and being chased. She loves to perform Call Me Maybe, do the Gangnam Style, jump, and do the splits. Then we have to clap for her. She would never get tired of being chased, even though I get bored after like four seconds. She just laughs and laughs.
Since I have two girls at home during the day, this might sound uncharacteristic, but Kendall and Maci think fart and poo are the funniest words ever and they love making the associated noises. Maci will be like, "hi poopy Mommy." Then laugh her head off. So of course I say it to her and she laughs just as hard. I can't help but to encourage them when it gets such easy laughs.
Kendall and Maci are best friends. Kendall hates when Maci naps. I say, "Maci, are you ready for a nap." And I hear Kendall whisper to Maci, "say NO WAY!" Then, of course, Maci says, "NO WAY!"
Allie and Detmer adore Maci and spoil her soooo much! They would do anything for her. They are the first ones there if she is sad or hurting. Detmer is so protective of her. She can whack him in the face and in the sweetest voice he says, "no no Cybil. We don't hit, okay." PS I have NO idea why he calls her Cybil. It's one of her many beautiful nicknames. I was informed by Kendall the other day that we can no longer call her Fray-nee-on-uh, which was her nickname for nearly a year. I'm having a hard time letting go of that one. And Kendall started calling her Mei Mei again, which I've never loved and I think it makes Cybil and Frayneeonuh look like names of the year.
