Weight: 41.8 lbs
Diapers: size 5, undies

Sleep: Lydia tends to sleep well and wake up happy. She also tends to wake up singing, which is kind of tricky since she shares a room with Sarah, but still sweet. She likes to sleep with a pink blanket, pink Beary, Lambie, and two pacis (one for her mouth, one for her hand).
Physically: She is just staring to stretch out and thin out. I think our "squishy baby" will need a new nickname by her next birthday. She seems to have very normal gross and fine motor skills and a sense of adventure that keeps her progressing. Her hair has grown sooo much over the past year. We are batting around the idea of a first hair cut soon!
Food: Lydia is a good eater and generally not very picky. She likes to dip given any opportunity, even if that mean strawberries in ketchup at Chick Fil A. We currently battle keeping her on task and in her seat at meal times, but it is a battle we plan to win :) She loves cheese, yogurt, mac & cheese, and grapes. (Surprisingly, she doesn't love cake!)
Communication: Lydia is full of words. Usually loud words! And if not loud, dramatic words. She says everything on her mind these days. We can almost always understand her, but others don't always know what she is saying if she gets going fast. She has a lot of inflection in her voice that almost makes it sounds like she is singing all the time.
Potty training: Once school started last year, re-potty training had to give. So we didn't worry about it for several months. In April we made a concerted effort to retrain with great success. She currently does all her business on the big potty and wipes herself. We still put a diaper on her when she is in bed, but no long in the car.
- The nursery ladies graduated Lydia to Children's Church and Preschool Sunday School. She danced her way through her first Sunday in the service for the music.
- Lydia was that kid who started potty training by visiting every bathroom in the tri-state just to see what it looks like, even though we all knew she wasn't going to go on any potty other than her potty at home :)
- When people ask how old she is, they don't get the short answer. She has been saying that she is two, but about to be three. And when she turns three her daddy is going to take her pacis away. It's quite the conversation starter.
