& just like that....TWO!

Just like that....Ryleigh is TWO!

She loves being turned around in her carseat now!
She will tell us "Oh mommy, I see green light!"

Ryleigh with her best buddy :)

I'd say about five months ago, her appearance really made some changes and she is such a little toddler now.

Height:   34-3/4"
Weight:   28lbs 

[favorite foods]
Chicken. Greek Yogurt. Strawberries. Waffles. Sour Cream & Onion Chips. Brownies.
Tortilla Chips & Salsa or Guac.  Cheese Pizza. Blueberries. Bananas. French Fries. lil'Crunchies. 
Peanut Butter Crackers. Yogurt Raisins. Cheerios. Hot Dogs.  Pancakes.

[growth & diapering]
Clothing sizes are pretty much following her age, although some pants are too loose at the waist.  She has used the potty but not consistently, so still wearing Size 4 diapers.

[favorite things]
Blankie is always with you! Riding the four-wheeler with Daddy. "Reading" books by yourself. Playing Hide & Seek. Counting (up to 20!).  Dancing and Listening to Country or Christian Music.  Your play kitchen & pretend cooking.  Using the Swiffer Sweeper.
Bubble Guppies & Paw Patrol.  Coloring.  Megabloks. 
Playing with your Melissa & Doug bricks.   Sidewalk chalk. Carrying your purses. 
Pushing your babies in the stroller.  Brushing your teeth.  Getting the Mail.
Helping with Laundry.  Playing & sharing with your dogs.  
Helping Mrs. Becky with the babies at Daycare.

I always heard, but never quite understood, when mothers said that "each new stage becomes your favorite" with children.  Ryleigh was a brand new baby and, once the fog of no sleep left, I used to wonder how that could possibly be--that I would find older ages as good as the cuddly, cute, always-new-firsts, baby stage.  But, I suppose now we are there with our ever-changing, strong-willed toddler and she tests my patience but makes me laugh and makes me proud every single day.  
I understand it now.  She is growing into the sweetest, funniest, most strong-willed little one and I am constantly surprised by new words or silly things that she says.  This is such a fun age!
