Well I thought today I would share an update on #babybigtruck. I have not done one on her in a while.
It is hard to think that she is going to be 3 in May. Mind blown! I feel like she was born yesterday. No joke.
Anyway let’s get to it shall we? Girlfriend is a maniac! Like legit she is non stop all day every day from the minute she wakes up till the minute she finally falls asleep. She is so full of spunk, sass, and energy and we love every second of it. She says some of the funniest things too.
As of last week when we randomly decided to weigh her and her sister she was sitting at 35lbs and she is about 36.5 inches tall. Her hair is outta control curly and she’s got so much of it and it is long! It is hard to see how long it is in photos because it is curly but when we wash it, it goes down to her butt! She is wearing 4T/5T and she can also wear little girls 4 or XS. She is mainly potty trained with the exception of naps and over nights but even those a lot of the time she will wake up dry so it is just a matter of time before she gets it. She also still naps from 12:30 to 2:30 at school and naps are hit or miss at home on the weekends.
She is just the sweetest and polite thing. And I am not just saying that because she is my child. I have been told by many of the teachers in her life be it her school teachers, Sunday school teachers, or her cubbies teachers. She always says please and thank you which apparently thrown people off.
#babybigtruck LOVES her little figurines. Like straight up obsessed with them. She has a little backpack that she stuffs full of all her little friends and takes it with her when we go somewhere. She LOVES her babies too. Her bed is full of all different kinds of stuffed friends from Elmo, Mickey, Minnie, to babies and the random fish and sock monkeys.
She LOVES her sister and is so sweet with her. She tries to help me pick her up and once she tried to do it alone and dropped her and man that was the end of the world. The hysterics between the two of them. Thankfully after a quick ER visit #babybigtruck2 was just fine.
When she is in the mood to eat girlfriend can and will put some food away. Some of her current favorites are cashews, blueberries, hot dogs, dinosaurs, peanut butter and jelly, chicken, broccoli, beans, green beans, peas, carrots, apple sauce, fruit snacks, pizza, yogurt, apple cookies better known as nutrigrain bars, rice, quinoa just to name some. She will tell me what she wants me to make her for lunch when she has to bring lunch to school.
She is starting to get into movies. She loves Frozen, The Little Mermaid, and Dory and Nemo. She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Sofia, and Princess Elana. She does not get to watch much TV during the week as we are out the door at 6:25am and don’t get home till after 5pm and we don’t turn the TV on at all at night.
She goes to bed anywhere between 7 and 7:30pm depending on the day and by goes to bed I mean is in her bed, stories read, prayers said and lights out. We usually hear her talking to her babies and friends in her bed for a bit and typically by 8ish she is actually sleeping.
#babybigtruck is a talker. She will talk to you about everything and anything. She loves to talk to Grandma and Papa both here and in FL and her other grandma.
She wants to help with anything and everything we are doing which is fun. She helps us unload the dishwasher and load it. She helps put away her laundry when it is clean and helps load the washing machine when I do laundry.
She takes ballet at school and loves it. She has her recital in June and I can not wait to see it!
She loves Jesus and going to church which makes this mama heart so so happy. She walks around church like she owns the place and everyone at church loves her. She looks forward to going to Cubbies on Thursdays and Sunday School on Sundays. I hope and pray that never changes.
Overall she is such a well-adjusted little person with a heart of gold. I hope and pray she always keeps the sunny disposition that she has. I know the Lord has BIG plans for her and I can not wait to see how she serves Him.
