Jada at 30 Months (2.5 years)

Oh Miss Jada! I can't get enough of my "Little Bug". Jada has been learning a ton these past few months. I don't think I can call her my little girl any more. She surprises me daily with all the things she knows and does. She picks up on things quickly and enjoys learning new things. She loves playing with friends and interacting with others. She is still a little shy when other people that she doesn't know really well address her specifically, but is slowly getting better at looking up and talking to them. Jada is a big help with Tucker and for the most part a happy, well behaved girl:)

As of June 3rd, Jada:
* is completely potty trained and has been for a few weeks. She even manages to keep her underwear dry at night and during naps!
* knows and recognizes all of her letters and the sounds that they make
* weights 33 lbs
* likes to say, "What's that!?" "What else do you have?", and "What happened!?"
* loves playing with her "Cars" more then any other toy she owns and plays with them daily
* still wears her headbands and keeps them in her hair:)
* finally has hair long enough to put in pigtails
* can count to 16 on her own
* recognizes numbers 1-9
* loves to wave at anyone and everyone and often randomly says hello to them
* still loves the water and taking baths, she especially loves it when Tucker gets to take one with her
* loves to read books and enjoys looking at them regularly on her own
* "read" aloud to herself her first book (Gossie:)

* got to visit Disney California Adventures in February and saw Cars Land and A Bugs Land as well as many others
* tried gum for the 1st time last month and managed to not swallow it like instructed
* loves to sing and enjoys singing to herself throughout the day. Some of her favorite songs to sing are, "ABCs", "Elmo's song", "I Love to See The Temple", "Ring Around the Rosie", and "Winnie the Pooh".
* loves "Car's" and "Car's 2" more then any other movies

* has the cutest smile
* yells "Green Elephant!" and "Geico!" every time we see their billboards as we get close to our neighborhood
* has gotten all but 1 of her 2 year old molars in
* sleeps in a big girl bed and has been doing great. She never gets out of bed during nap time or at night. When she wakes up from sleeping she yells "MommyDad!" and "I'm awake" over and over until we come and get her out of bed. She never gets out on her own. It's awesome

* is a great big sister and tries to make Tucker happy when he is upset
* shares anything she eats with Tucker
* loves iPhone's, iPad's, iMac's . . . anything Apple:)
* is still an excellent eater, but has learned to eat slowly and "get distracted" so that she can postpone bedtime. Little stinker
* loves going to the daycare at the gym and loves it even more when we go to the pool at the gym
* loves playing with her friends
