Madeline turned two on New Years Eve, and I still cannot believe it. I feels like yesterday I was staring at the clock in the hospital, watching midnight roll around.
We had a wonderful weekend with a quiet birthday celebration on Friday, and then a big party on Sunday. Madeline had a wonderful time, and loved all of the visitors, especially Elmo, who stopped by too! :)
She is doing great with everything now. Her speech has caught up (if you remember, I was worried at about 19 months because she didn't like to talk very much). She has started speaking in two-word sentences now and has a wide vocabulary. She likes to do everything on her own, and one of her favorite words is "mine". She decided last week that she wanted to try and go on the potty, so we pulled the one out we bought for her, and have been letting her sit on it whenever she wants. We aren't offically potty training, because I don't think she is ready (doesn't mind having a wet diaper), but I figured getting used to it can't hurt.
Next hurdles, weaning and getting rid of night-time binky. Both will be tough. But, overall, she is a sweet and even-tempered little one, so even her bad days aren't too bad yet.
Attached is a pic from her recent birthday. :-)
