{Delainey: 23, 24, 25 months}

So I'm behind posting this and I'm sad about that because I am sure I missing a whole lot of details about this little fire cracker of ours. MUST stay on top of this. I love having it to look back on. Anyways - I've just spent an hour trying to get her to stay in bed for her nap. All week she's been a stink. Kaya keeps "falling out" and Delainey needs to save her. Or she needs a hug or wants to see Ry. Or she's taken off her sleepsac and "needs help Mommy". She IS my daughter - I know, I know Mom and Dad. Pay back. :)
Either way - she's just the best little person ever. I think I say it every update but this age just rocks. She is so fun, silly and says the best things. She just makes each day so much fun even if some of our days are challenging. And even though her early wake up time isn't always my favorite just hearing her excited little voice say "Hi Daddy" when he goes into get her is the BEST way to wake up.

Everything. She loves food. She's a great eater but depending on her mood can be very picky and choosy from day to day. Something she ate today she won't tomorrow.
Loves snacks. Some days I wish we had a lock on the pantry.
She loves steak, pizza, soup, grilled cheese, rice pudding, smoothies, yogurt, cheese & crackers, pouches, mama chia, berries, bananas.

Snacks. Eating.
Kaya, Halloween.
Music - she sings along to Taylor swift in the truck. Cutest thing ever.
Tormenting Cruz. Kissing and cuddling Ry.
The ipad - Daniel Tiger, Anna (Frozen)
Coloring, crafts, playdough, painting.
Lego. Playing outside. Reading books.
Gymnastics. Bum drops & galloping.
Brushing teeth, flossing and cleaning her ears with Dad.
Doing things herself.

When you say no to food.
Having her hair brushed. It's equal to pulling teeth in Delainey's world.
When you do something that she wanted to do.
Sometimes napping.

{what's new}
She must do everything herself. "D do it" comes out of her mouth far too often.
No more soother for a few months now.
Sleeps in her big girl bed like a pro. She even uses a pillow and her duvet now even though she still goes in a sleep sac. She also sleeps with 15 "friends".
Cut down to 1 nap in the afternoons anywhere 0 minutes to 1.5 hours if we are VERY lucky.
Size 3 diapers Costco brand.
Front facing in the truck now that she finally weighs enough!
Clothing mainly 18 months to 2T. It's nearly impossible to find pants that are long enough for her and small enough in the waist.
Puts on pants, hoodies/coats and boots herself and does up zippers if you start them for her.
She says the funniest things!! And you have to watch what you say around her for sure. I've heard her tell Cruz "you drive me crazy Tuz" and says "good girl Mommy" every time I go to the bathroom. :) She drops the last sound of most words when she uses long sentences so can be tricky to understand sometimes but at other times her sentences are very clear. Either way she's hilarious.

We love you Delainey Brynn and are SO proud of you. You've taken this new big sister role so well and are growing up into a sweet little girl that we could not be more thankful for.

Aw, she is such a cutie! That age is so fun. I love hearing the things that come out of kids mouths at that age! Too funny. I wish I would have done a better job of writing down things my nieces and nephews have said!
