Haddie turned 2 on January 2nd. Since her last birthday, she has grown up considerably. She went from a baby who was very attached to momma, to a little toddler with lots of words and a mind of her own! In the last month or so, she's added "children, obey your parents" to her vocabulary which I think will make Jo, her speech therapist, happy to know there are four words all together. Haddie likes to make a very unsatisfied face when she is asked to obey and then told to go sit on the step when obedience is not chosen. But, she almost always comes out of time out ready to do as she is asked. She just needs to feel like she's in control, I'm afraid. When she is asked "why" to something, she responds "cuz" or sometimes just shrugs her shoulders.
Play time usually consists of babies, her favorite "How to Feed Your Cheeky Monkey" book, her new tea set, or a variety of toys from the boys room. She really likes to read and sing. Her favorite song is "The Angels Sing" which was the song her class did for the Christmas program at church. It really is adorable listening to her animal sounds and the little actions. When I play piano at church, she likes to sit on my lap at rehearsal and play along. (That's getting a little more difficult as baby sister is growing and mom's lap space is limited.)
Her brothers and dad are her favorite. When she wakes up in the morning she asks for Micah first, and then Eli usually followed by "school", and Daddy followed by "work".
