Toddler Tuesday

Well, it's Tuesday! And you know what that means... It's time for Toddler Tuesday! I'm so glad I actually wrote down the funny things that Abigail did these past few weeks months because I would have totally forgot about them.

Abigail has recently gotten into coloring with markers and she prefers them instead of crayons. She got a pack of markers and some coloring books for her birthday and she went NUTS. After we were done coloring, we were putting the markers back in their box. I accidentally put the yellow marker in the box, upside down. I thought Abigail was going to have a heart attack! She then proceeded to dump all of the markers out and put them back in THE RIGHT WAY. I guess she has a small case of CDO OCD!

A few days later, we were coloring again. Abigail has since then destroyed the box, so the markers were in a Ziploc bag. I dumped the markers out on the table so she could get to them better, but she freaked out again and put all of the markers back in the bag. I guess she likes taking them out of the bag one by one, instead of having the free range of the markers being on the floor!

Two of Abigail's favorite words are "Wait" and "Watch". Whenever she wants you to watch something that she is doing, she looks at you and says, "Watch! Watch! Watch!" It doesn't matter what you are doing, who you are talking to, she won't stop saying it until you repeat her and give you 120% of your attention.

The same thing goes for the word "Wait!" If you're doing something that she doesn't like (like dumping the markers on the floor, instead of having them in the bag) she will put her hand out, palm out, and repeatedly say, "Wait! Wait! Wait!". I sure love that girl.

Little miss is OBSESSED with make up. She gets into my make up drawer on a daily basis. You would think I learned my lesson and moved my make up, but nope. I haven't. So I guess I can't complain, right? One day she smeared mascara all over the side of her face (including her eyelashes!), slapped on a headband and came running up to me saying, "Let's go, Mommy!" She was all dressed up with nowhere to go.

Today we had grilled cheeses for lunch. Abigail had 4 slices and Avery had 2. I told Abigail that if she ate her sandwich, she could have a cookie for desert. Avery ate hers faster than Abigail, so I gave Avery a sliver of my cookie. (Yes, I ate my whole sandwich before getting my dessert.) Abigail slams her sandwich down and says, "Are you kidding me?!" I was so taken aback, I burst out laughing. I had to remind Abigail that when she finished her sandwich she got a cookie too. She did finish her sandwich, ate her cookie, and all is well.

Thanks for tuning in! Hopefully I'll remember to write down the silly things that my 2 year old does, so I can start on a post for next week!

Quick shout out to my handsome husband, it's our 3 year anniversary today! 3 years, 2 kids and 1 wonderful marriage. I love you sweetie! I can't wait to see what the next 50+ years has in store for us!
