Terrible Two’s… Here We Come! September 13, 2009

Filed under: Family,Life — kunderwood @ 2:12 pm

It is so hard to believe that my youngest celebrated her 2nd birthday yesterday!  This last year has flown by, but she has been busy.  Along with speaking a lot more and going from walking to running, here is a list of some of her accomplishments over the past year:

  • got a CAT scan after falling from a chair
  • taught herself to climb the ladders of her siblings’ bunkbeds
  • started drinking coffee.  black.  don’t even try to put creamer in it- you’ll see her temper.  just ask Brent.
  • removed the letter keys of the laptop one by one
  • scrubbed the bathtub while her sister was in it… with the toilet brush
  • learned to open the doors and leave the house all by herself… without bothering to tell anyone
  • pulled all of Trey’s birthday cupcakes off the counter onto the floor… and then helped herself
  • learned to defend her property from her siblings… by screaming bloody murder
  • dumped the dog’s water dish countless times… or poured the dog’s food into the water dish
  • bathed herself in an entire bottle of pure maple syrup

Yep, it’s been a busy year.  And it wasn’t even the “terrible two’s”…  she’s on the fasttrack! 🙂

But with all of her craziness, she’s the funniest, sweetest, most cuddly 2 year old I know!

    I read this out loud to Scott and we were both cracking up! (Although I am sure many of these are not funny in the moment.)
    She is a hilarious kid.

    I was laughing so hard as I read this! Grey is right there with Tessa with the dog bowl thing! I go through so many paper towels every day cleaning up that darn water! 🙂 I can’t believe she’s 2 already! She’s adorable!
