Slurping, Sulking and Sentences

Ok, all of you (increasingly dwindling number of) readers who are tired of my biking or narishkeit posts, here's one about The Toddler.

She is now 28 months old and is talking in sentences. Consequently, she is the source of a limitless amount of amusement for me, MHW and the girls.

She also thrives on structure. For example, every night it's the same routine. Bath, bottle (down to only one a day, before bed), "Big Album" (one of the seemingly scores of family photo albums that MHW has compiled), a bunch of books, piggyback ride upstairs, brushing of teeth, Sh'ma and Hamalach, pacifiers (4 of them), lights out.

She has also learned to sulk. Often, when she doesn't get her way, or sometimes for no discernable reason, she will stand still and sulk, the bottom lip thing and everything. While she can stay in this position for a couple of minutes, she is also easily distracted. If you say something funny or interesting, her head will pop up with a smile as if nothing had happened. Where do they learn these things? One day they cry the next day they sulk...

She's also learned to slurp her drinks. Wonderful. (This is addition to "show me", which OOD taught her a while ago, and about which OOD is immensely proud).

So, all in all, TT is doing very well, indeed, she is thriving. We are thriving too. We daven that the powers that be recognize that this is where she belongs and do the right thing.

    Just wait till someone shows her how to blow bubbles in her milk with a straw. Inevitably, she will learn how to do this when the milk in question is chocolate.

    I'll daven for that too. :-)
