24 Months

I just don't even have the words.  I never knew two years could pass so quickly even though everyone warned me.  These kids make me so happy on a daily basis and I just can't remember what our life was like before them.

Jackson:
  • Says "bu boy" (good boy) after doing just about anything
  • Says "AW" after giving something to Madison or hugging something
  • Eats apple sauce, yogurt, goldfish, puffins and that's about it
  • Sleeps very well, 9 pm - 8 am and takes a great nap from 2-5
  • Loves to go bye bye
  • Loves to wrestle with us
  • Hits the kitty too much
  • Loves to cuddle with Mommy
  • Loves it when Daddy says he's going to "get" him

  • After a long winter indoors he hates to come inside
  • Has started replying "YEAH!" when asked a question no matter what it is
  • Hasn't put two words together yet except for "I did it!" which I think he thinks is one word
  • Loves baby dolls, balls, cars, trucks, the little people garage, to push around a stroller
  • Absolutely melts Mommy's heart
Madison:
  • Loves to hop around
  • Literally repeats EVERYTHING you say 
  • Sleeps very well, 9 pm - 8 am and takes a great nap from 2-5
  • Eats a variety of things

  • Loves to play with puzzles and amazes me that she can do them
  • Still gets me with her laugh...it's so cute and sincere and unique
  • Loves to play with cars
  • Now has to sleep with "daddy's bear", "too bear", "mama's bear", minnie, mickey, pillow, blanket
  • Makes sure that Jackson has his mickey to sleep with
  • Is very particular about doors being closed

  • Loves to go bye bye
  • Started getting what we think are hives in the past week but we don't know what is causing them
  • Is finally wearing size 18 month pants
  • Amazes us daily at how smart she is
  • Has Daddy wrapped around her little finger
  • Is Mommy's favorite little peanut
Mommy:
  • Will never get over how fast the last two years have gone by
  • Never dreamed she would love them so much
  • Is aware how blessed she is to have two healthy and happy children
  • Loves to hear them chat and laugh and jump in their cribs after being put down to sleep
  • Is happy to have a little more independence during the day to get things done
  • Is the luckiest Mommy on the planet to have these two little people as her children
