How Mom's Feeling: I can't believe we're over halfway through February and I'm just getting around to writing our 2 year post. That is absolutely crazy. But this last month has just been so crazy with birthday parties, trips to the snow and just life! Mostly though, I just can't believe that Lorelei is already two years old! She's been demonstrating some definite "Terrible 2" type behavior--at least for her. She's turning into "not a morning person" taking longer to wake up, and frequently she's whiny when she does. And this is AFTER sleeping 11-12 hours! She's more selective with her hugs and kisses now. While she'll blow kisses, generally, she does not freely give kisses and hugs the way she used to :( She's also WAY more selective about people, even people she normally would smile at. Now, she seems to have a sort of stranger danger/separation anxiety. There are, of course, the people she has no problem with--BeeBee and Grandmama, Mommy and Daddy, Aunt Bonnie, Aunt Mel, Poppy, Grandma Janet and Grandpa Dan, Nick in my office, and Miss Sandra at J-Care. If anyone else tries to talk to her, she'll hide behind my legs or even cry. There's also so much fun stuff going on with her as she begins her third year. Going to the zoo is much more fun. She's actually interacting and playing with other children. And she just LOVES to help mama. Cleaning up, using the big mixer, putting away dishes or clothes. In some ways, it makes things a lot easier. In other ways, it adds more work!
