Our Baby Is Growing Up

Anna’s Age: 2 years 2 months 24 days

Tonight Anna woke up in the middle of the night wanting to poop. She cried and called mommy: “мама! Кака!” Mommy immediately rushed to Anna’s room. We quickly got Anna to the potty to do her business. Then washed her little tushie. Mommy thought Anna would want to nurse a bit before going back to sleep but Anna said lets go to bed and off she went. A bitter sweet moment for mommy. I am glad Anna is comfortable falling asleep without nursing but it’s also a growing step. Our little baby is growing up! So proud of her! So glad that Anna knows that mommy and daddy will be at her side any time she needs our help, but also that she is also comfortable doing things on her own now.

Knock, Knock Joke

Anna’s Age: 2 years 2 months 17 days

Anna’s first knock-knock joke came out by coincidence?

Mommy was opening the package of the string cheese for Anna.
Anna: Open. Who is there? Cheese.

I think open and knock-knock are tied close to Anna for now as that’s how she knows people first knock then open the door. :-) either way it was cute and funny :-)

Empathy

Anna’s Age: 2 years 2 months 16 days

Anna was watching a cartoon while mommy cooked dinner. The cartoon was about a little chick who got lost and mommy hen was looking for him. When mommy glanced at Anna, her eyes were red and her lips were tight and tears were rolling down her cheeks. It was an amazing feeling to see our toddler empathizing with the little chick. Mommy hugged Anna right away and told her that if she were to ever get lost, we would always find each other. Oh, I love our little bug! :-)
