Month in Review: June 2010

June was a month with a lot of action, but this blog doesn't really show that. Maybe next month (yeah, right).

  • Quotes of the month: 
    • "Daddy, what's your problem?"
    • "No, rabbit! Don't eat my dinner!" (said when she spotted a box of Trix while sitting at the dinner table)
  • Knocking on wood as I type this, but she is finally sleeping consistently well. Asleep at 9, awake around 6, usually wakes up for a minute or two around 1am, but then right back to sleep. Plus a 2 to 3 hour nap during the day. I really hope I didn't just jinx this.
  • Being summer, we've been spending a lot of time outside at various places: Linvilla Orchards, Smith Memorial Playground, our own backyard, and Rose Tree Park where we've been going to free outdoor concerts nearly every week.
  • She's got a pretty amazing memory for a 2-year-old. She can actually recall things that happened weeks ago. For instance, Kristen took her to the Please Touch Museum probably 4 weeks ago. We showed her a picture of herself on the carousel there and she started talking about how she rode on a horse and then cried when she had to get off. She will frequently tell me tidbits about her day when I get home from work, recounting things she said, places she went, etc.
  • Still getting random temper tantrums. Ah, two. What fun.
  • As for potty training, still moving along. She'll go on her little potty when we specifically ask her to sit down, but she's still not at the stage where she's letting us know beforehand that she has to go.
  • Grandma Moyer came to visit for a few days, and Carolyn read tons of books with her, showed her all her toys, played with magnets, and in general they entertained each other pretty nicely.
