Audrey - 25 months


You are so full of energy! And this month you've really started to use your imagination when you're playing. Your new kitchen from Santa gets lots and lots of use. You love to make soup and sandwiches, coffee and tea! You love to run around the house shouting, "Action chugger to the rescue!" You'll also lay on your back on the floor and call out, "Help! Help! I stuck in the mud!" Or shriek from the other room, "Help! Help! There an alligator!"

You were never afraid of anything, but you've also developed a little bit of fear and jumpiness. Sometimes you'll run to me and grab onto my leg and say,"I scared!" for no reason at all. If someone comes in the house or around a corner and catches you off guard, you scurry to me and grab right onto my leg. You don't seem to really be afraid, but you're showing us that you understand a new emotion.

When we're not outside playing in the snow, you've really liked cuddling up on the couch with Mama and a bowl of popcorn and watching movies. Dumbo and The Fox and The Hound are big favorites of yours this month!

You love any kind of arts and crafts, including play dough! You repeat everything you hear, and have an unbelievable vocabulary. But every once in awhile, you remind us that you are just 2. While watching football with Daddy, he yelled, "Tackle him!" and you proceeded to shout, "Yeah, tickle him!" So funny!

Mommy's best friend had a baby on the 9th, and you were so excited to go and meet him. When we got there, you held him, but your attention quickly moved to other things. Mommy was glad Daddy was there to keep you occupied because she was loving soaking up every tiny little newborn bit of him!

We went to Maryland to celebrate Mommy's birthday for the 2nd year in a row. Watching you and Blake reunite and play together was so much fun! You splashed and splashed in the tub together every night and had us all cracking up! We went to the children's museum down there too, and you had so much fun!

We started seriously potty training about a week ago, and you are doing so well! We have hardly had any accidents and you are so proud of yourself. Mommy and Daddy are super proud too! We've been staying home most of the time and haven't really tested it out in the real world, but I have high hopes that we're just about done with diapers.

I don't know if I'll keep writing you a letter every month now. You are growing and changing still, but not quite at the rate your were. I might go to every 2 or 3 months. But despite how often I write, you are and will always be the light of my life!

I love you so much, peanut!
Love Always,
