Look How I'm Growing!

Mommy keeps telling me that I'm going to be a big sister soon, and that being a big sister is going to take a lot of work. So we have been practicing new skills now so I'm ready when the baby comes. Sometimes it's really hard and I want to go back to being the baby and not listen to anything Mommy says, but usually I try really hard to act like a big girl. 

My favorite thing about being a big girl is that I get to go to school by myself. Mommy doesn't stay with me anymore. She walks to me class, I blow her a kiss, and then I get to play for an entire hour with just my teachers and friends. I love it! 

Here are some of the other big girl things I have been working on:

Letting Mommy comb my hair. I've always hated it, but I'm learning that if I just let her do it, it makes her a lot happier (not to mention all the comments I get from other people!).









Waiting patiently while Mommy fixes my food. Sometimes Mommy says the food is cooking, that means I have to be patient for a long time.

I'm also learning how to help out in the kitchen. I'm really good at cheese and toppings on pizza (which just happens to be my favorite food).







Experiencing new things. I've also learned that there is a reason Mommy puts those funny things on my hands. When I don't wear them my hands get so cold.





Walking places instead of being carried everywhere. This is my favorite! Most of the time Mommy makes me hold her hand. I don't like to hold her hand - I like to be independent, but I'm trying really hard to get used to it. I think it is worth it because it is so much more fun walking than being stuck in a stroller or in Mommy's arms.






Just being cute! (and trying not to complain so much when I'm stuck in my car-seat).

She is getting so big! It's sad to see the baby stage go, it's hard to see our baby's turn into little kids. She'll be the best big sister ever!

Cute sunny! I don't doubt it will be a challenge, but she's so smart, I think she'll catch on pretty quick that being big is well worth it!

I was so excited to see you last week Antalya! You are getting so big, and I can't wait to see you again. Tell your mommy to call me when she knows if you're having a brother or sister!
