20 months!!!


20 MONTHS?!?! That's like almost a 2 year old! Like a toddler! Time is my enemy lately. Time with Poppy is flying by way faster than I ever thought it could.  There aren't enough hours in the day to get all of our fun stuff done together.   And it's almost time for me to go back to work.  Must stop time.

Anyways, let's talk about what this little monster has been up to this month. First of all, she is a little monster, a cute monster, but a monster none-the-less.

Remember I mentioned that she learned how to say "no" months ago? Well that was a one time thing. She literally said it to me once and then never said it again. Until this week. Everything is answered with a very affirmative "no".

When she wants to be picked up and we don't immediately follow her orders, she does this high pitched "oooooooh!", starts shaking her head and flapping her hands. And continues doing this until we pick her up. And lately, she wants to be picked up all the time.

She is usually very neat and orderly and likes to pick up her toys and put them back where they belong. Lately, if she's done playing with something, she'll just chuck it across the room or throw it on the floor, instead of putting it away. And if we ask her to clean up, she'll start running for the hills.

In addition to being a complete monster, she can also be sweet as pie. Today was all about kisses. First thing this morning, she grabbed my face with both her hands and gave me like 10 kisses. Everytime we were in the car, she was blowing kisses from the back seat. Even after a diaper change, she had to give me a few kisses before she went off to play.


My sweet little monster, watching dada leave for work.


Just found this pic on Marc's phone...New Year's Eve at the Korea House.

Welcome to the twos! They are bipolar at this age. Angels one minute and devils the next. However it is such a fun time and enjoy every minute of it. I love the pjs and the 2009 glasses. She is so darn cute.

Glad you found that photo! She is too cute. I love that pic with her sitting in her Bilibo! Isn't it funny how the wait for her to get home seemed like a lifetime, but once they get home the time flies by? I wish it were the other way around..thats for sure.

I can't believe you are talking about my beautiful grand-daughter as a terrible toddler or monster??
Oh well, I guess I have to admit its cute when I only see it occasionally. She is such a delight and I am enjoying my time with her. They say "time flies when you are having fun" Take satisfaction in knowing you are living the best years of your life!..Love you all. Mom(grandma)
