2 1/2 years old, where has the time gone?!

The girls are 2 1/2 now and I love this age. LOVE! They are both talk non stop, all day long. The things that come out of their mouths are hysterical and have me sitting around wondering "where did they ever hear that?"

Finley lives for the water. She wakes up and instantly wants to put on her "babysuit" and go swimming. If I tell her its too cold to swim she wears her suit around the house until it warms up enough to go out.

She also loves to change her clothes a million times a day, she is the "resident fashionista" and the things she puts on has me cracking up.

She's still "the boss" of the house. What Finley says usually goes. No one wants to challenge the spunk.

Lately she has a HUGE appetite and has been eating Gillian under the table. The last time I weighed her she was 25lbs and 35 inches tall. I have a feeling she has gained some since then though. Today she has 3 bowls of cereal, 2 bowls of oatmeal, leftover Chinese, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She has been wolfing down her food. She's still WAY tiny for her age. In the 5th percentile for her weight and 20th for her height. She can still wear 12m skirts and shorts. They actually fit her perfect around the waist. I think that will change soon though the way she's going.

She loves to paint, color and play with playdoh. It will keep her busy for hours. I always said I felt like she would be artsy and I could be right. She has that eccentric/artsy vibe about her. We'll see.

Gillian seems to be challenging me a little bit more lately. I'm trying to decide if its her terrible twos or her just exerting her independence a little. She has her moments but for the most part she's still a sweetheart.

She's also talking like crazy and will sit there and have a full conversation with you about anything or everything on her mind. She just started playing "pretend" and will come up to you with a "present" and then you have to pretend to open it and tell her what it is. She thinks its hysterical.

She's about 28lbs now and 36 inches. I think it was 25th-50th for her weight and 50th for her height. She can barely fit into 2t clothes now, some are still baggy on her but they'll do.

Both girls love animals and I'm pretty sure would spend all day at the zoo or aquarium if you let them. We took them to Mystic a month ago and they are still talking about it.

Well those are the updates for now. The girls are keeping me busy, barely have time to get a cup of coffee in now a days but its amazing. I love being home with them, they make me insane most days but they are flipping adorable and I am so grateful to be able to be home with them right now!

Awww! Love hearing stories about how other little ones are developing. Don't you just love growth spurts! It's amazing to see them eat everything in sight and then see them shoot up a few inches shortly there after. Enjoy them!!!
