Lynlee turns 2

Oh wow I can't believe I have a two year old :) I just love Lynlee with everything I have.  She is learning and growing everyday.  We love that she is talking in sentences now because we can understand more of what she says :)
Things she is saying (she says A LOT I won't put everything on the list):

  • Current favorite thing to say is "I no want" or "I want down."  
  • I love that fact that when she wants something to eat she simply says "eat". 
  • When she needs to go to the bathroom (or when she needs a diaper change - still not quite ready for potty training) she says "potty" and sits on her own potty and then asks for a "piece" which means she wants a piece of tp.
  • "my games"
  • "book"
  • "I love you....Mom, Dad, trixie, etc."
  • "Grandma" and "Grandpa"
  • "Elyse"
  • "Jammies"
  • "I want walk"
  • "Come on" - said while pulling on your hand to follow her somewhere
  • "sit" - said most when she wants you to sit next to her to read a book or play a game
  • "balls"
  • "Yes", "Uh uh"
  • "more"
  • "again"
  • "What is that" 
  • "draw"
  • "Mom"
  • "Dad"
  • "mine", "Lynlee's"
  • "bye" - said everytime she leaves a cashier at any store or leaving anywhere in general.
She says a lot to much to list all of her sayings.  She can say the alphabet.  If you sing it to her she will tell you the next letter by saying its sound.  She can count to two sometimes three.  She likes the head, shoulders, knees and toes song and LOVES to point out that she knows where her knees and toes are haha.

Went to the doctor for her two year check up.  This doctor was really cute with her.  She didn't cry when he touched her with the stethoscope or looked in her ears.  He is really good with kids; being a pediatrician is definitely his calling in life.  Anyways, she cried when the nurse measured her haha silly girl.  No surprise though she is still on the small petite side.  She weighs 22lbs 8oz (5 percentile she is moving up the chart a little bit). 32 1/2 inches long (10 percentile, moving up) and her head is still at the 50 percentile.  The doctor looked directly at me and said that is normal.  That is the first doctor that said it is ok for her being small.  Man moving to Utah was such a good decision :)  She still has very little blonde hair, but I can put it in a little piggy/pony tail and she won't rip it out like the cute flower headbands.

We had a party for her the weekend Mitch and Lindsey came down from Idaho so that she could have as many cousins there to help celebrate (there were nine there).  I will do another post for her party.

New House # 3

We have been in our new place just over a week and I am loving it.  It is the largest house we have ever owned so hopefully we stay here for awhile :)

On Saturday the 29th was the big day luckily we didn't have a lot to move in.  We sold a bunch of our furniture when we moved from AZ like our couches, beds, and washer and dryer.  When we found our house we started looking for furniture on KSL (I have missed this classified so much better than my craigslist experience).  We got an almost brand new couch for a great deal and a 2 year old washer and dryer set with a steam option :) Very pleased with our purchases.

We found our new bed and spent a little more money on that because I didn't want to buy a used mattress, but I am in LOVE with it.  I sleep so well on it.  With our new bed we decided to purchase a bedding set from tjmax.  It was the color we were looking for, but when we got home and took everything out and slept in it for one night it started to unthread.  It was at that point I took it back and we went to ross and bought a comforter and some decorative pillows and a sheet set from Big Lots all cheaper than what we got from tjmax and I love our decision.

Anyways, in the process it was little Miss Lynlee's second birthday.  I am glad it was her second birthday because I am able to throw her a party two weeks later and she won't even know the difference.  I did take her up to Park City to have lunch with dad and this AMAZING Mexican restaurant and bought her a Minnie Mouse shirt.

And before any of my readers start thinking oh she is two isn't about time she have a brother or sister.  Well, that is one question I hate and am actually bothered by.  It is fine to have kids farther apart in age.  The next child will come when the time is right.  We don't use protection so that is truly what I believe.

I am in love with our new house (not so much having to pay a mortgage again haha) and can't wait to start building memories here.
