Caroline turned two a couple of weeks ago. We don’t have any good pictures to share from that day. (We really are not very talented picture takers, unfortunately.) However, this morning we went to the Meijer Gardens and did get a few good shots.
Caroline is a big girl. She’s still almost off the charts height-wise. If you double her height now (36 and 1/2 inches) as a guideline for her adult height, she’ll be over 6’1″! Yikes! For her sake I certainly hope not. The doctor said he would guess more in the 5’9″ to 5’10” range. But she is tall and people almost always guess she is at least six months older than she actually is.
Caroline loves puzzles. I bought her a couple that I thought might be too hard for her right now, but she loves them and plays with them a couple of times a day. (Here’s a picture of her doing a puzzle.)
She loves doing real things. She helps carry things to the table now when we eat. We’ve only had one dropped plate so far. I don’t mind because I really want to encourage her to be helpful and involved. (And I’m selective about what I let her carry!)
Her favorite food in the world is “beans and rice” from Qdoba. That is a naked chicken burrito with black beans and corn salsa. She loves the stuff. Shovels it in. “Beans and rice! Beans and rice!” She would eat it every day if we took her there. She is also partial to apple cider right now although we have to limit it or there is no sleep to be had from all the sugar.
And she loves her Baby Einstein videos. Oh, yes. The continuing saga of the Baby Einstein videos. We put them away for a month and then got them back out again to try it out. Since then we haven’t had any problems. She loves them. We only let her watch two a day and pretty much only in the morning. That seems to work. But she enjoys them so much and I’m glad we gave it another try.
We love our Little Miss Peanut and we’re so thankful for this bright, funny, inquisitive, independent little girl who was sent by God to live with us. ♥
