This month's cutest new phrase has to be "What's this thing?" She has been saying "What's this?" for quite some time, but there is something extra adorable about the way that she says "thing" that gets me every time! I make her repeat it sometimes because I love it so much! She is stringing together longer sentences now; it's common to hear 5-6 word sentences. She is also still into touching our faces when she really wants us to listen to what she is saying, which is the sweetest feeling in the world.
She is just as active as ever, in fact becoming more and more active as time goes on. She runs, jumps, climbs and hops everywhere. One of her favorite parts of the day is getting ready for bed, because after she and Ryder are cleaned up and changed, they jump on his bed for a few minets before going to sleep. She is into jumping as high as she possibly can- she gets some good height for a two-year-old! She loves to be outside, even more so than Ryder. She constantly asks to go for walks and go play in the yard.
Vivien has really learned how to get Ryder's goat lately. Frankly after the past two years, he deserves it a bit! One day he left his cereal on the table and when he was ignoring it, Vivien ate it. Later when he decided that he wanted to finish it, he found the bowl empty. He was shouting about what happened to his cereal and Vivi told him "I ate it all"!!! She also likes to snag things that she knows he's using and then run over and hide behind me when he gets mad. Luckily they play well together at other times and are often very sweet to each other!
I've been holding out a bit, but Vivi is ready to move up to a new clothing size, which always makes me sad! She has been eating a lot lately, so I think that she might be hitting a nit of a growth spurt. All of a sudden she definitely seems a bit bigger/taller to me!
She is still so smiley!
That was the best pic I could get with her birthday banner
Such a serious face!
