snapped these before church Sunday...
SB loves wearing her pearls or really any kind of jewelry! She's such a girlie girl but yet kind of a tom boy too!
taking a bow and saying ta-da! :)
My little 2 1/2 year old has quite the personality. In fact, she is full. of. it!! She loves just about everything in life! I want to be more like her! She loves to joke around, she'll say, "You jokin?!" and laugh. She loves to make you laugh and she loves to laugh. Sometimes she'll say, "talk to me." And she really wants to have a full on conversation with you! She especially loves to talk with daddy after he's been at work all day. And he always takes the time to talk with her. She a daddy are big buddies. They play super hard together and always have a blast. Jared is pretty busy with work this time of year but he always makes time for his Spicer. They love to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches together, take shower's together (I hear them singing in the shower at the top of their lungs!), make jokes (Spicer really gets Jared's humor, probably because she is a mini version of him!) play outside and just pretty much anything! SB adores her daddy! Of course she loves mommy too, but she's with me all day, so when he comes home it's all about him! Jared loves it!
Spicer loves all things girlie. But she also loves to play rough, be outside, play in the dirt/mud, and animals. She's a good little mix of girl/tom boy! A good ol' country girl! SB also loves going to church. She always tells me that she learned about Jesus! This just warms my heart! Every morning she sings "Good morning God," says two scriptures, and prayers for the day. This is such a precious time and I love hearing her little voice talk to Jesus! Sb also really enjoys her friends. She has so many at church but she also has friends from bsf and gymnastics. Some of her best friends or friends she talks about the most are Aspen, Abe, Adelynn, Natalie, Jake, Micah Kate, Bella, Joben, Jaben, and baby Ty and there are many other's these are just the one's her little 2 1/2 year old self talks about the most. She loves them all so much and she will even tell me, "mommy I love my friends." So sweet.
She is learning to recognize some letters of the alphabet apart from the order they are in. I know this isn't something she has to know until kindergarten but I try to teach her the best I can. I think she can recognize s, o, p, r, and t consistently. I haven't worked with her on this for basically my entire pregnancy and I'm just now getting back to it. So, I'm sure with some more practice she'll start recognizing several more soon! :) not that she has too! She says, "S, is for Spicer!" So cute! She also can pretty much count to 20. She definitely doesn't recognize the numbers yet (but haven't really worked on this) but she can count them. Oh and definitely doesn't have the 1 to 1 correspondence concept down just yet! lol! I plan to start working with her on grouping things in groups of ten to help her develop the concept of 10. That's what our system is, base 10! I wasn't the best at math so I hope I can help her to be.
Jared and I love her sweet little voice. We love how she doesn't really say her "s's" and that she says /y/ for /l/. Like in, aunt yowa! Oh and /w/ for /r/! She has always said the word again like "adin" and the other day she said the word correctly! Jared and I looked at each other and got kinda sad. Jared said, "I don't want her to talk right!" haha! We just love her being little!
SB tells us she loves us and hugs and kisses us so much. She and I like to give each other "fishy kisses!" She loves to sing and dance and say little nursery rhymes. I recently taught her the little rhyme "Say, Say my playmate" with the motions and she loves to try and do that. Like I said, she basically loves everything! :)
Spicer you are the sweetest, smartest and cutest little girl! Daddy and I love you more than we ever thought possible! You love life and you love to have fun. You are full of joy and laughter! Everyone that knows you loves you and you love everyone (for the most part! ha) It is our joy and privilege to be your parents. We thank God for you each day and pray that you will accept Him as your Savior at a very young age. You're the best SB!
