Oh honey bunny. You are 2 years old now! We can't believe it! And we love you SO much!!!! Here are the stats on you on your 2nd birthday!
Nicknames: Halle Balle, Boo Boo Chomps, Hal, Baby Hal, Happy Halle (although you aren't that happy anymore, lol.)
Favorite color: PINK!! You always answer pink and always pick pink!
Favorite books: Everything Dora. Dora Goes to School. Dora's colors. Dora loves Boots. Dora this, Dora that! It's so funny because you don't even watch Dora that much. You just LOVE the books!! You love the predictability Dora has with asking help from Map, Backpack, and following the prompts!
Favorite shows: You are your sister's little shadow! You like what she likes, and have totally skipped over baby shows! While Noelle liked Barney, Elmo, and other slower paced shows, you are ALL IN. You love My Little Pony, Paw Patrol, Goldie and Bear, Little Charmers, Dora and Friends Into The City, Descendants Wicked World....just to name a few!
Favorite movies: All the Equestria Girl movies, Descendants, and Monster High movies. Lol. I'm slightly embarrassed that my baby likes such mature movies for her age, but that's just what she is into! We can't even GET her to sit down for something more age appropriate! You silly girl, you!! You also LOVE The Good Dinosaur.
Favorite songs: "Worth it." Yes the one by Fifth Harmony, lol. You are SOOOO musical! You pick up on notes, rhythm, and lyrics SO fast. You sing almost everything. You also love "Let It Go," all the other Frozen songs, and tons of My Little Pony and Monster High songs. You can sing them all. You may not talk a lot but you know ALL the lyrics!
Favorite foods: As you age you get pickier and pickier with your food. It's a little disheartening but hopefully it's just a stage! You love cinnamon cookies, yogurt, cheese, fruit snacks, apple juice, bagels, macaroni and cheese, chips, and other salty things! You aren't much of sweet tooth, but would rather have chips and dip! One thing you absolutely DO not like? Milk! You will not drink it for the life of you! But you eat so much yogurt and cheese to make up for it, that you really don't need to consume any milk.
Favorite activities: Playing with ponies, dolls, coloring (you are so good at it! Already coloring in the lines!), playing outside, playing with play doh, and playing on your tablet. You also love being read to, and love dancing and singing.
Terms you use often:
"I need _____!"
"I want _____!"
"I do it."
"Bankie back." (Asking for her blanket. lol)
"Paci back." (Asking for her pacifier.)
Things you don't like:
Up until about a day ago you HATED baths! You screamed bloody murder to the point that we stopped giving you baths and just had you stand and scream during the world's fastest showers. You absolutely HATED sitting in the tub, and HATED getting your hair washed! This started about half way through your year! The picture above is when you still enjoyed them!
You have CURLS!!! So many! And they are tight ringlets when you get out of the shower! We have no idea how you have such curly hair but we love it! You were also a late bloomer on teeth (not getting your first tooth until after you turned 1 years old) but now you have at least 12. You are shorter though, and a little chunky. Hehehe. We love you so much. You are wearing size 3t (!!!) and size 5 shoes.
You are so smart! You know all your colors, can count to 20, and have the best concentration! You can use the tablet like a pro, and you already color inside the lines and can draw pretty decent shapes!
Your typical day:
You get up between 6 and 6:30 am each day (boo) and have a nap around 1-3 pm. You go to bed between 8:30-9:30 pm. You spend your days with Grandma Sue and Noelle currently on M,W, and F, and only with Grandma Sue on Tues and Thurs.
You are really spunky. You have quite an attitude, and know what you want! You are talkative, funny, and love to have it your way! In front of other people, in public you are rather shy but you don't really come off as shy. You come off like you are uninterested! Lol. You don't make eye contact with people and you like to look at your feet with a scowl on your face if people you don't know are talking to you. You take time to warm up to people but once you are warmed up, you are so talkative! We don't know what you are talking about half the time, but you get so animated and lively! We love that about you!
We love you soooo much honey bunny!!!! You are the sweetest, greatest, little 2 year old in the world!! I could not even love you one ounce more!!!!
Happy Birthday Love!!! Cannot wait to see what the next year brings you, and us!! Love you Halle!!
