30 Months {Julianne}

I feel that Julianne grew up so much this month.  She's talking up a storm, making jokes, and wants to be the center of attention in anything that goes on around her.  

Her most frequent phrase is "Mama, wat dis!"  (Mama, watch this!)

Alma, my mom, visited this month and Julie was pampered each morning with make-up and lotion.  Alma pretended to put the make up on but Julianne just ate that up.  And she had her nails painted the very first time and she was so tickled by it.  She would show anyone who would talk to her-her pretty nails. 

Julianne is particularly found of Jaxson getting time outs.  She will say to me "Boy bad.  Me nice." She will also try to boss him around which I have to tell her she is not the parent.  One day, Jax was acting out pretty bad and I warned him that if he acted like a baby he was going to sit in Julianne's high chair.  Sure enough, he tested me and so I had him sit in the high chair.  Julie that that was hysterical that "Boy was a baby." Even she got the message.  And I have to say, that did help on his behavior. 

My mom and I took Jax to their very first Disney Live show.  It was Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Princess Sofia.  Julie ate that princess stuff up.  Disney KNOWS how to market to a two year old. 

I love her prayers at night to God.  I will usually pray something first and then she will follow up with her prayers.  She prays for all sorts of things...Alma, Meow-Meow, turch (chuch), and her babies.  It's fun to hear her each night.

She is really, really afraid of the dark now.  In addition to having a night light we also keep the light on until she goes to sleep.  This is a terrible habit, I admit but this is not one battle I want to fight just yet.  And she still falls asleep fast. 

Our conversation at naptime today:

I was tucking Julie and Meow-Meow at naptime.  I asked if everyone was happy being tucked in.  She said, "Yes.  Happy Meow-Meow.  Happy me."  Aw, so cute!

While staying in a hotel in Nashville, Julie appointed the closet to be her "room."  I'm not sure why, but she put all her toys in there and then would sit in there and play. 

She loves puzzles, just like Jax did.  One day when Jax was at Kindergarten orientation, we did puzzles for 1 hour and 10 minutes.  I was so sick of puzzles by the end of that hour.  But she had a blast.

Happy 30 Months Julianne!
