|Many of you saw this on Instagram. Brinley needs to dress just like her sisters do for swimming! So funny to
see this little toddler with a swim cap and goggles.
This is a summary for Brinley from 25-25.5 Months old.
Sleeping went well here! Everything was great with sleeping.
There was one event one day. Remember a couple of weeks ago how I talked about her ability to undress herself? Well, she decided to undress one day in her crib. This was fortunately at the end of her nap–after she had slept. She took her clothes off. Then she took her diaper off. Then she peed. Nice. She was quite upset by it. She was upset enough that she hasn’t repeated the process. Hopefully she won’t! She is my first child to ever undress in the crib. I know some of you have horror stories that are much worse. Knock on wood, I hope to never see such a day!
Eating was pretty good. I mentioned last week that she has been eating smaller amounts. Well, she is getting like Kaitlyn was at this age where if she got hungry, she needed food immediately. Blood sugar issues. I don’t know if it is related to her eating less or if there is something about them genetically that makes them do that. Brayden had times of eating very little and never had issues with it. If she is having a blood sugar meltdown, I will give her a cracker to get her calm.
Playing was good. Nothing of interest.
She became adept at opening doors to the outside. This isn’t a thrilling milestone, but fortunately she is well behaved enough she will leave it shut for the most part. I discovered this talent of hers when one day she opened the door to the garage and threw all of her letter magnets out into it while I was working in the kitchen.
Oh my goodness. She was super, super grumpy during the first week of this period. Super. Whiny. Clingy. Grumpy. I thought I might lose my mind! I wondered if teeth were bothering her. I think it was a cold coming on. I got the cold a short time later and I was in some serious sinus pain the first couple of days! So I think that was it.
