Aurelia is learning her ABC''s. She has the ending down pat: "double x, y & z." If you try to suggest that it''s "w, x, y & z," she looks at you like you''re from outer space. Very sweet.
Aurelia''s love of Elmo grows daily. She no longer eats eggs, but she will eat "elmo eggs." In general, if "x" is unacceptable, "elmo x" almost certainly is ok.
Clothing size update. Aurelia is still in 2T dresses and pants, but 3T shirts. Her shoe size is 9W.
Aurelia is talking up a storm now! She says at least one new word a day. She''s also developed a speech "quirk." She says "now" at the end of every thought, even if she''s not asking for something. Very sweet.
Aurelia''s learning to jump. She crouches low and then quickly stands and ends by throwing her hands in the air. Her feet don''t leave the ground, but it''s not for a lack of trying.
Aurelia has started to mimic us -- two of her favorites are 1) to wave her finger in the air and say "nooooo" and 2) to pump her fists in a cheer and say "go, go, go."
Aurelia''s hair is turning blonde and her eyes are turning hazel. Most excitingly, her hair is getting curlier the more it grows in.
Clothing size update -- Ms. V is 2T for everything (hats, pants, etc.) and size 6 Toddler for shoes.
Aurelia has started dancing, which largely involves spinning in a circle until she falls. So sweet.
We started potty training Aurelia today. We are pleased to announce that she tinkled in her potty tonight! (Although we don''t think it was on purpse, but it''s a start)
Aurelia (finally) has a word. Acutally, it''s a phrase. "Wassthat" or, translated, "What''s that."
She likes to point at things and say "wassthat" and will wait until you answer. She has no other words, not even mama or papa.
