23 Months!

Harvynna turned 23 months yesterday. In a months time, she will be 2 Years old! How time flies! Now that she is talking, it feels like she has been talking forever. She still looks like a baby when she sleeps, but when she is awake, the ‘Terrible 2’s’ look appears.

At 2, they are no longer a baby, but have a mind of their own. Yesterday, we asked her what she wants to do after dinner, and she replied, ‘ Go Sopping (shopping)!’Immediately after dinner, she ran to the door and said, ‘Mummy, get ready, lets go’ and was so excited to go out.

And, unfortunately, this little one has started to lie. When you ask her , where is xxxxx? (something she misplaced), she will reply, ‘Nana took it’ or ‘Aunty Philo took it’ or even ‘bird took it!!’ even though she knows she took it.
