Lillian Grace: 24 Months



Twenty-Four Months

"Today you are You, that is truer than true.  There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
~ Happy Birthday To You  By Dr. Seuss


Weight:   25 lbs

Height:   33”

Wearing: Twenty Four Months, Size 5 Shoe

Motor Milestones: Lilly is still working to perfect the jump, but she will have plenty of opportunities to practice on her new trampoline.  She consistently can eat with her utensils and she usually prefers to use them, even with cake and ice cream.  As the weather is getting nicer, Lilly will gets lots of outdoor time on her new trike, our neighbors had some pedal extensions, so now she can reach and really use her legs.  Overall, Lilly is just non-stop ... although there are very few new motor milestones to meet, it seems that she just does everything faster, higher and longer that she did before.

LanguageMilestones: Some days it seems we have a 5 year old in a 2 year old body.  Lilly has started to say the most comical statements.  And what makes them even more comical, are her attempts to put them together on the fly.  Sometimes, they don't turn out quite right.  She still likes to give possession of things to people.  Mama's hair, hot (tea), clothes etc.. She has recognized her likes and dislikes and will share them with us.  Daddy, no touch hair, please.  She is doing a great job with please and thank you.  Although, it is tough to make her do something, when she so sweetly says No, thank you, Mama.  No, go to bed.  And she has picked up the catch phrase .. oh my goodness, which she uses at the most appropriate times.

Highlights:
·         Celebrated her 2nd Birthday with a Garden Party
·         Had a visit with Grandma and Grandpa Knoll
·         Got to wear the Birthday Crown at school

Favorites: Playing in her sandbox, riding her trike, watching the birds at the bird feeder, singing to herself in the car, dancing, catching bugs and going on trips.
