Aniston @ 2 1/2

Aniston is 2 1/2(really???) going on 16! She is constantly making us laugh and keeping us busy. I thought at one point that I got out of having a terror, but I spoke to soon because she has her moments. Since potty training started, she has been more of a handful and gets into more and more. While potting in the toilet has been conquered, the bathroom brings a whole new trouble of it's own. One night at 1:30am, we caught her playing with her bath toys in the toilet. She had toilet water everywhere including the toilet brush holder, the garbage can, and in the lids of her bath soaps. She has started going into the bathroom without saying anything to anyone and she gets into trouble if we don't catch her in time and get her on the potty. She was afraid to flush the toilet for awhile, funny! I think it still scares her, but she's tough and very independent. I'm glad she's potty trained(sleeps in panties too!!), but at the same time, that's just one more thing that makes her a big girl and that is hard for me because she is my baby. Aniston's favorites: Her lady bug...she won't sleep at our house without it. "sofe blanket"...she likes a nice soft blanket right by her face when she sleeps...Grammy's is her favorite. Singing...she knows words from most songs on the radio that are played over and over and she likes to make up her own songs. Talking...she talks all day long. Dancing...she hears music and she starts a shakin'! The girl has got rhythm!!
School...she always tells us she has to go to school and that she has to do her homework. Aniston will climb up to the computer, move the mouse around and tell us she has to do her homework. This crazy girl puts her wadded up jackets on her head all the time, and if you pull it off and try to get her to wear the hood, she throws a fit. P A R T I C U L A R(gets it from her mom). Going to people's houses...when she talks to my mom or sister on the phone, about the first thing out of her month is "I want to come to your house". Ours must be boring. Snacks...apples(thanks to Papa), grapes, popcorn, fruit leather, cheese crackers, suckers...the list goes on and on. This is Aniston with her lunch that she picked out, which I let her do most of the time. She loves her sweets, but I think she would take the healthy stuff any day! Chocolate mess!! Did I mention the girl LOVES chocolate!! Chockie milk...chocolate milk. Would drink it all day every day if we let her. She's like her dad! "Hold you like a baby"...still loves to be cuddled, but unfortunately it doesn't last long unless she is tired. Movies...Cars, Credibles(Incredibles), Nemo, and Shrek. No princess movies for this girl. She'll also watch "mommy movies" as long as there is popcorn involved. Shoes...not necessarily hers, usually other peoples. She puts her own shoes on sometimes, but we're working on getting them on the right feet and making sure they match. Sporting Mommy's shoes. She loves to get into my shoes, and she'll wear Chris' sometimes too. Painting her it! tubbies...always cries when she has to get out. lips and gum...she doesn't get gum right now because it doesn't stay in her mouth. HOWEVER...she DOESN'T like... bugs...if she sees one or even thinks there is one, she'll scream. getting her hair done...have to have the tv on or she has to look in the mirror. getting dressed or undressed...especially having to pull her shirt off or put it on. I love this girl, she is the sweetest! I can't believe how fast she's growing, and how fun it is to have her. I'm a lucky momma!!!
