6 Weeks!

The longest time between posts! Life with a 2 y/o is chaotic to say the least and blogging is one of the last things I do with my down time.

Everyone here is doing well. We have celebrated Lilli's birthday, Easter, and many other occasions since my last post. Lilli is doing GREAT! She is so much fun. Her personality just seems to get brighter and brighter with each passing day. Her speech is coming along as well which is cutting down on some of the frustration. She is a classic 2 y/o in that she throws tantrums, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Last week, Lilli was moved from the toddler room at daycare to the "Terrific Twos" room. I was devastated because we LOVED her toddler teachers. They made everything so easy for us and Lilli became so attached to them. I hope she does just as well in the 2 y/o room. She is so much smaller than the other kids!

On Friday Lilli is having tubes put in her ears. The kid keeps having ear infections and has been on so many antibiotics that I can't see continuing to put her through all of that nonsense anymore. Our pediatrician recommended it and referred us to an ENT. I am so hoping that the tubes will help with her speech as well. Maybe the reason why she has been so slow to communicate is because she can't hear!

Lilli says several words now: Mommy, puppy, kitty, beep-beep (cars), fish, more, juice, drink, yes, and her favorite words NO, and STOP IT! I have to keep myself from laughing when she tells us to STOP IT! It is hilarious. I'm sure there are other things she says, but I can't think of them right now.

I forgot to mention that Lilli is now sleeping every night in her crib AND we put her in the crib and leave. More nights than not she spends the ENTIRE night in her bed! Yeah us! 9 months of HORRID bedtimes have finally paid off!

Well, I'm off to bed.

I'm so glad you updated! You must be so relieved that Lily is sleeping in her crib without crying. I hope the tubes help.

Thanks for your comments! I'm so glad people are still reading. How long has your agency predicted you will have to wait for your referral? We are contemplating #2 and are curious about the wait.
