Dear Jenna - 25 months

Dear Jenna,

You are 25 months! That last month went so fast! Maybe this isn't the best time for me to write this, I have been home all day with you since you have pink eye and an ear infection. You only napped 40 minutes and have asked for "snacks" at least 75 times!

I am still amazed when I look at you sometime and see how big you are. I see a little girl. You continue to learn and grow every day. The things that come out of your mouth are sometimes so funny!

You like to test the limits lately, a couple of examples: Last night you got out your crayons and coloring book. Your dad and I were talking for one minute and heard you say "Mama, I making a mess!" I looked and you had colored the Ottoman instead of the paper. That resulted in a time out which you now tell me "two minutes" and then proceed to do your fake cry. The thing is you know when you are doing something wrong, you even tell me while you are doing it!

You also like to climb on the arm chair of the couch and straddle it, which I know will result in a fall. This morning when you did it I looked at you and said, "Jenna, what does Mama say?" and you replied with, "Don't worry Mama!"

Where did you even learn to say that!? You also love to dress up and pretend. It is so funny to see you using your imagination, like how Swiper the Fox (from Dora) is hiding in your toys and sleeping.

You also have friends now. You talk about Evan, Kate, Myra, Dani, Jackson and Wyatt. You still enjoy cartoons a little too much and always want to be watching something. Lately your favorites are Diego, Dora, Backyardigins, Little Einsteins and Handy Manny.

I feel so lucky to be your mom and you make me happy everyday! I look forward to continuing this journey with you. Happy 25 months honey!

Love always,

Your Mama
