Louise continues to crack us up with what she says. It’s not even really the words themselves, it’s what it shows she understands, and the tone in which she says them. She also loves to say something, then say “RIGHT?” and have you confirm…and then go through that process 10+ times until you get exasperated.
We are still working on her listening. We have to threaten something like time-out sometimes just to get her to acknowledge what we’re saying. I also do the whole “ok I guess I’ll leave without you” move if she’s stalling.
Still sleeping in the hallway but we’re probably going to get her big girl bed soon, so hopefully this will phase out. I’m curious if she’ll stay on the ground once it gets colder.
The most difficult time with her right now is bedtime. She gets really goofy and makes it difficult to put her pajamas on, get her teeth brushed, etc. It’s a battle the whole way through, but she’s not screaming or crying – she’s using goofiness to get what she wants. It’s almost worse!
All in all she is a lovely girl and, even with the random outbursts and meltdowns, a joy to be around. Mom and dad may be exhausted but it’s worth it. =) Looking forward to starting preschool at Dallas International School in two weeks!
