Mae is 2 years old!

Didn't Mae just have her first birthday!? I can't believe she's already TWO years old!

She has grown and changed so much in the last few months.

  • Mae is usually up for the day around 7 or 7:30. She LOVES her cup of Almond Milk in the mornings, so we go for that right away. She naps great in the afternoons still. She goes down around 12:30 or 1 and I usually have to wake her up around 3-3:30. She goes to bed at 8, but sometimes spends some time talking and rolling around her crib before she goes to sleep.
  • She did sleep on the toddler bed for a nap and night one day a month or so ago, but she prefers the crib and that keeps her contained, so that's where she sleeps. :)
  • She is a pretty good eater and LOVES to dip anything in ketchup or ranch. Her favorites are any fruit, but especially blueberries and strawberries, green beans, yogurt, cheese, pretty much chicken cooked any way, steak, and of course, any kind of ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. she can get her hands on. 
  • She has become quite the talker in the last couple of months too. She still calls herself "Nae" and is VERY independent. She climbs up and down from the highchair by herself and if I try to help, she yells, "No Mama! I do!". She was sitting in the booster seat between Arabelle and Bo at meal times, but she kept swiping food off Bo's plate, so we went back to the high chair. Ha! 
  • Mae LOVES Mickey Mouse, which she calls "Nick Nick". She likes to watch Mickey on the iPad before bed. 
  • She still doesn't have all her baby teeth in yet. She is missing all 4 canines and her 2 year molars. 
  • Mae still LOVES to be outside and do whatever Arabelle and Bo are doing....jumping on the trampoline, catching frogs, etc. She isn't a big fan of swimming/getting wet, but hopefully through the summer she will learn to enjoy that (especially since she's taking swim lessons this week!). 
  • She finished her first year of pre-school last week. She really enjoyed her Mon, Wed, Fri, mornings at school! 
  • Soooo, she was also pretty much 100% potty trained for pee, then my pregnancy got long and Zeke came and she has 100% regressed. Boo! She will still go on the potty occasionally, but she really doesn't even want to go in to sit and I do NOT have time to fight it right now, so back to diapers for a while. Maybe by the end of summer, when the newness of being a Big Sister wears off, we can go back to underwear. 
  • She is FULL of energy and always on the go, but still loves to cuddle. 
On her actual birthday, Zeke was just 3 days old, so I was a little disappointed that I couldn't spoil her as much as I like to do on birthdays. Fortunately, she was happy with candles and singing over and over. :)

We had to wake her up for a quick breakfast before pre-school. Jared picked up some Mickey Mouse cupcakes and she had a little party at school.

That afternoon, she just HAD to have another cupcake!

I think her favorite birthday gift just may be baby Zeke. :)

And every girl needs a 'day after the birthday' cupcake, right? :)

Happy Birthday Mae! We love you!
