Amelia’s 2 Year Update

Next week my first baby, my baby girl will be two.

Yes, two.

In some ways it feels like ten years have passed since the day she was born, and in other ways it feels like only five minutes ago and (hello cliche!) in a blink of an eye this tiny wrinkly bundle of hair and gunk is now a walking, talking back, full of attitude and NO screaming almost – two year old.

Likes & Dislikes:

Her baby brother – I’m not sure what category poor little Maxy fits into if I’m honest. One minute she loves him and wants to cuddle him (a little too hard) and the next she’s sat in him like he’s a pony pushing his face into the carpet repeatedly whilst he screams.

Being told what to do – Like any typical toddler, she hates anybody telling her what to do – even when I ask nicely and cleverly make her think it’s her idea. GAH!

Gymnastics – This is another thing that she sometimes loves and sometimes hates. However Mummy is determined for her to be winning gold in the Olympics so we’ll keep pushing and see whether it’s something she wants to stick with, haha!

Ballerinas & Fairies – She got a new big girl bed as an early birthday present (Max desperately needed her cot) and I found her some super cute ballerina bedding which she’s obsessed with! She did originally think it was a fairy so now she loves both fairies and ballerinas!

Kinder eggs!! – One Word: Obsessed.

Physical development

Amelia started walking at around 9 months, and this early walking made her legs really bent and her feet were turned in meaning she would sometimes trip up. After a trip to the doctors and being told she’ll grow out of it and now she definitely has! She’s running, jumping and climbing all over the place. One of her favourite things to do now is a ‘roly poly’ that she learnt at gymnastics.

Speech

Amelia’s speech is pretty brilliant for an almost 2 year old – even if I am a little biased! She’s putting together full sentences now really well and understands the words and their meanings – sometimes saying things that seems far too grown up and making us all go huh?! It’s really nice to be able to actually have a conversation with her and understand what she’s saying a bit more now.

Height/Weight

We haven’t seen our health visitor for a while because she’s been off sick so I’m not 100% sure what she weights, but she’s still pretty dinky! For the amount this girl eats I’m surprised she’s still as skinny as what she is!

Eating

Chocolate. That’s pretty much all she wants to eat. She rarely finishes meals and likes to say her food is ‘gusting’ (disgusting) and refuses to eat most of the time then asks for some form of junk food. However I’m thinking that if I keep refusing and she’s hungry then maybe she’ll actually eat her meals properly?? I dunno, we’ll have to see haha.

Sleep

Amelia really has just been the dream child. She’s always slept through and she still does now! (Touch wood!) even now she has freedom since she can get out of her big girl bed she still stays in there all night totally zonked.

As much as my almost – two year old can be a complete nightmare, she really is hilarious and the thinks she comes out with cracks me up! (She told me she’s so proud of me for giving her a yoghurt?!)

I’m so excited to spoil her on her birthday and make her a lovely cake and wrap up her presents! She’s going to be so excited and hopefully she loves her day!

Happy Birthday Amelia! xoxo

  7. This is a sweet post. My own daughter turned two some months ago and I loved reading about Amelia, while recalling my own daughter back then. Forming good eating habits are important, so stick to it despite how hard Amelia makes it. It’s better for her in the long run 😊

    Btw…I wonder the same thing…where does all that food go? Skinny as a stick…my daughter’s pants fall down, but she eats so well.

  8. Happy birthday Amelia! Ha ha – my youngest is 2 and… what’s the thing with Kinder Eggs? 🙂 Thanks for sharing. She’ll love having these blog posts to go back to when she’s older #KCACOLS

  9. Happy Birthday Amelia. She sounds like she is doing amazing. She sounds like she is a delight. They can be a handful at times but they can be so sweet and funny too. She sounds much like my little girl, walking early and talking really well at 2 x

  14. She seems like a lovely little girl. And it’s not just kids obsessed with kinder eggs lol, I am trying to collect all the justice league characters from them at the moment as I love superheroes lol.

  15. Aw how lovely, I loved the bit about cuddling…too hard, made me smile as I think of mine when they were younger cuddling animals or other peoples smaller children and it all being ok until I would have to peel their fingers back one by one to stop suffocation!
