So I'm assuming this is typical 2 year old behavior, but this girl easily becomes OBSESSED with things. For instance, ever since our apple picking expedition, she asks for apple pie on a daily basis. Loves it, can't get enough of it.
A few of her other obsessions:
Stickers. We are putting in requests for multiple reusable sticker books for Christmas.
Thomas the train. She could play with her choo-choo's all.day.long. And have you ever watched that show? It's the worst ever, but she loves it.
Her rats. It all started with a stuffed rat. She must have "ratty" with her at all times. Marc was stopping by Ikea on his way home from a trip a few weeks ago, so I told him to pick up another ratty as a back-up. He gets a white rat instead of her pre-existing gray rat, and a baby rat too. So now she has Mr. Ratty, Mrs. Ratty and baby ratty. And she now needs all 3 of them with her at all times. And we still have no back-up ratty.
Chicken Soup With Rice by Maurice Sendak is her fave book right now. We read it approximately 10 times a day. I'm pretty sure she has every word memorized.
Taking her pull-up diaper off. This morning was the 3rd morning we found her bare little bum in bed while she was holding her wet diaper. And apparently at my parents house today, she took off her pants and underwear during nap time and sat her bare little bum on the headboard of her bed while she was supposed to be napping.
"Daddy a boy? Mommy, Poppy girls?" Somehow she managed to figure out the difference between boys and girls and each morning she verifies with us that Marc is a boy and me and Poppy are girls. And then she continues to list every other person she can remember and tells us whether they are a boy or girl.
Blue. Apparently blue is her favorite color. If she sees something that is blue, or might be blue, she asks, "This bloooooooo mama?" She has no interest in learning any other colors.
And that's our obsessed girl in a nut-shell.
