I think it's about time that I give you a formal introduction to the new little one in our family. You know so many little details about little Chloe, that I think it's Madi's turn.
For those who don't know, she's my boyfriend's daughter that recently moved in with us full-time.
She turned 2 near the end of January.
She has an older (half) brother who's 3.5 that lives with her mother.
I would describe her lately as happy. She has very few tantrums and meltdowns, finally. She's usually content playing by herself or with Chloe, or just watching tv. She wakes up cranky for the first couple of minutes, but is pretty happy for the rest of the day, and usually goes to bed pretty easily. She's easy to get along with through meal time and bath time. She listens a lot better to me when I say no now. She doesn't seem to listen as well to her father, but she spends more time with me.
In the past couple of months she's started speaking a ton. All kinds of things: Dora, Pikachu, outside, tv are just some of the random things. She can also put a few words together now like "Chloe outside". It's awesome seeing her learn so much.
She used to be a super picky eater, but we've finally managed to get her eating everything on her plate, as long as it's something she likes. She used to just eat meat and ignore the veggies but now she'll eat all of it. She hates pasta and won't even try cheese though.
She fits into mostly size 3 clothes. Some size 2 and some size 4. She's in size 6 or 7 shoes.
She's changed so much in the past couple of months, and all for the better, it seems. She's happier and easier to get along with. I know all days won't be like this, but for now I'm enjoying it.
Plus, it's kind of fun having two little girls to dress up.
