Rachel is officially right between two and three, so I wanted to document her right now. I’m grateful for our days together while the big kids go to school. I’m thankful God gave her to us because every single day she brings joy to us.
At 2 ½ years old, Rachel …
LOVES puppies, swimming, music, Murray State’s mascot Dunker, and milk.
WATCHES “Paw Patrol,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Toy Story” and its sequels, “Moana,” “Trolls,” “Frozen,” and “Sing.”
IS potty trained, learning to swim, adventurous, fearless, and funny. (I wrote about that adventurous, fearless part last week.)
EATS popcorn, bips (aka chips), cole slaw, sucks (aka suckers). (I mean, she eats other things, but those are her favorite things.)
SINGS songs from those movies I listed, Murray State fight song, “Happy Birthday,” and “You Are My Sunshine.”
SLEEPS in a toddler bed, usually for about 11 hours at night. Naps sometimes happen in bed and other times in the car.
SAYS many words, “No, I am” for “No, I’m not,” and “‘Cause I said” when anyone asks her why.
ASKS where we’re going when we get in the car, lots of questions, and why often.
WANTS to do whatever Ben and Cate are doing, to go outside, and be part of whatever is going on.
Meanwhile, feel free to look back on Rachel’s little life: One month. Two months. Three months. Four months. Five months. Six months. Seven months. Eight months. Nine months. Ten months. Eleven months. One year. Fifteen months. Eighteen months. Two years.
