We had Waverly’s two-year appointment with our pediatrician about a month ago, she was still very short (5th percentile) & average for weight (50th percentile). This appointment followed one we had a couple weeks before, dare I call it a “behavior” appointment?! I called in for help after a couple rough days with Waverly hitting & throwing just about everything she could find. Her two-year old status clearly got to her head & I started going crazy in mine! 😉 Just as I thought she would, our pediatrician said it was completely normal & to continue with exactly what we were doing (time-outs when needed & just straight up telling her no!). It felt good to have reassurance, I feel like I am always second-guessing myself in how I discipline. Raising Waverly to be a polite, well-rounded young lady is so important to me & I feel like this is one of those things that you don’t get a “do-over” on. We definitely still have our tough moments (& tantrums), but I know that is part of this whole parenting thing & that ultimately, the good moments far exceed the challenging ones. 🙂
Some of Waverly’s current favorite activities are taking her babies for walks, dancing to the music player she got for her birthday, putting on jewelry, & coloring. We are still Sesame Street obsessed, as well as phone-obsessed, she gets on her phone every day to call her “guys”. #troubleahead
She also LOVES to go to the grocery store with me, as long as it is Target (where she gets to sit in the extra big cart plus get an icee) or Kroger, where she gets to push her own “mini” cart around the store. It’s ironic how that used to be one of our challenges, but now is one of our favorite things to do! Of course, she is still FULL of energy, most moments of the day. The other morning I left for work (at 6:05), she had already pulled every toy out of the bin & was circling the downstairs with a pom-pom in each hand singing. Girlfriend amazes me.
We have officially entered the “mine” phase & also, Waverly wants to do everything, all the time, all by herself! We are working on sharing, we do know our little lady does not own the slide at our neighborhood park, despite the fact that she definitely thinks otherwise. The sweetest moment the other night though, we were driving home & she kept repeating “my daddy” & “my mommy” while pointing to us, then would point to herself & say “ME!!”. She went through the rotation for about ten minutes straight, laughing constantly, & we loved every.single.minute!
And lastly, in fashion news, we are wearing mostly 18-24 month clothes with some 2T pieces. Waverly loves to help pick out her clothes, plus attempt to put them on herself, & looks in the mirror to say “cute!” before we go anywhere.
