All things Hannah Kate

Hannah went in for her two year appointment. She is currently 34 inches (45 percentile in height) and 26 1/2 pounds (42 percentile in weight). We were pleasantly impressed by the 3 lbs she packed on since June. Overall, she is growing and developing wonderfully--something we certainly don't want to take for granted.

Some other random things about our dear Hannah:

  • She refers to herself as "Hannah Tate!" 
  • She calls Micah "ga-ga" and if she refers to him as Michaiah it's "me-ga-ga"
  • She calls Elizabeth "la-la" but more recently she will randomly say "wit-a-beths"
  • She moved from saying "da-da" to "daddy". It melts my heart.
  • Sadly, she has started to abandon mama and resorted to mom. She is 2 going on 15.
  • She takes apart her sandwiches. 
  • She likes to string her string cheese.
  • She loves bananas.
  • And elmo.
  • And Woody.
  • and Wendy (from Peter Pan).
  • and princesses.
  • She also likes shoes. and jackets.
  • She doesn't like to wear mittens.
  • And she likes to touch the snow. 
  • Yeah, not a good combination.
  • She loves, LOVES the "kismas twee." 
  • And I love to hear her say it so much, I may never take it down.
  • This kid has some hilarious dance moves.
  • Her first question in the morning is always, "where daddy?"
  • And her favorite question is, "why?"
  • She counts like this: one, TWO, free, nine, TWO! It's too cute to correct right now.
  • She's a really great helper. She will take shoes to the front door, try to hang up her jacket, grab a diaper or the wipes, and throw diapers and trash away. 
  • And if I can't get her to do any of those things, Woody gladly does it for me. 
  • She likes music.
  • And she likes to wear big sister's pajamas. 
  • She knows most of the animal nosies. But if she doesn't know, she will say "meow"
  • She quivers her chin when she says "Naaayy." 
  • She is loaded with personality.
  • She likes to say, "A-MIN!" for amen.
  • She is currently cutting all 4 of her 2 year molars. Poor girl.
  • She gets the most compliments on her hair.
  • And the next, being those big blue eyes.
  • She's a cute one. and she knows since "Wook at mee!!" is a common phrase.
  • If she gets caught disobeying, she freezes. except her eyes. They are moving up and down and side to side with big blinks in between.
  • She hates getting her hair brushed. 
  • If she doesn't like her food, she likes to say, "eww! uck!"
  • She's a hoarder. She would hoard her food and toys if we let her.
  • She likes to snuggle.
  • And put her cheek next to yours when you slow dance.
And these are only the beginning of the things I love about her.
