Check Up: At Hannah's 2-year check up, she weighed in at 26 lbs and was 33.5" long. This put her around the 40th percentile for both weight and height which is the highest she has ever been! She is definitely caught up for being a pre-term newborn.
Sleeping: Hannah has always been a great sleeper and that is continuing. She usually goes to bed anywhere from 7:00-7:30 but can usually make it to 8:00ish if needed. During the week, we go get her from bed just before 7:00 am to get ready for the day. Usually on the weekends, as long as we are still in bed, it's closer to 8:00 (which Mommy & Daddy really enjoy!) Naps are usually anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on the day.
Eating: Hannah still loves to eat, however she has a very typical toddler appetite. Some days she scarfs down everything in front of her and wants seconds. Other days, she picks around and eats just a few bites. She is not a huge milk drinker so whatever she drinks, she drinks. We think she also may have inherited her Mommy's sweet tooth and loves yummy sweets and desserts.
Playing: With Christmas and birthday, Hannah has an abundance of new toys at her disposal. It is so much fun to watch her go from toy to toy learning and playing with everything. She still loves to put puzzles together and is already learning the few new ones she just received. She also loves to read! Lately, she won't lay down in bed unless she has a book with her (even though she can't see once the lights are out.)
Helper: Hannah is a wonderful helper in whatever she is asked to do. Between playing with
toys, we always ask her to clean up the one she is done with. She usually complies pretty quickly. She also continues to love to help me cook dinner and bake goodies. It is a typical part of our after school routine. Whether it is loading or unloading the dishwasher, sweeping the floor, picking up toys or whatever, Hannah is definitely a little helper.
Potty Training: We are making some huge strides with the potty training efforts! She had just two accidents at the baby sitters this week and none at home! By Thursday, she was telling Miss Sarah "pee-pee" while holding herself, and then would go. Yay! I feel like we are definitely on the right track! We are still wearing pull-ups when we go out and about because I still get a little nervous. We are so, so proud of Hannah and glad we tackled this hurdle when we did!
