A Day in the Life of- CARRINGTON
Carrington is 23 months old, and here is a quick snapshot of her world :). She is a sassy little girl with strong opinions and few words. Although she has few words, that does not stop her from clearly getting her point across- TRUST ME! She has added a few words to her vocabulary lately: "That?" (she points and is trying to say, 'what's that?'), "Huh?" (when you call her name, she immediately says 'Huh?'), "Bow"- I think she has finally come to accept the fact that I will put a bow in her hair every day for as long as I can, "Woof-Woof" for the sound a doggy makes, and "Night-Night". So, we may have have crossed into the double digits in her word database (if you want to count "woof-woof" and "huh" as words, which I do). :) Carrington is a thousand times better about food than Trey- she will try and most of the time eat anything. We went to Bonefish for dinner the other night and she chowed down on shrimp, scallops, and tomatoes, while Trey happily ate bread. She is an excellent sleeper- still that 8pm to 8am at night, and a solid 2-3 hour nap almost every day. She is social and happy, and as long as you don't try to hold her, she is doing awesome (she is NOT a big cuddler, so it's always best to just let her do her own thing). She loves her baby dolls, and pretends to feed and rock them. Carrington has just realized/discovered that others can be sad, so when Trey is crying, or she thinks that Mommy or Daddy are hurt, she will come over and start rubbing our back or arm- it is SO SWEET, and now we want to pretend to be sad all the time, just to get her to come over and comfort us! :)She also really likes to walk like a big girl (as opposed to riding in the cart or stroller), and if both Doug and I are around, she wants to hold BOTH of our hands- so we end up walking in a line, as a family, all holding hands, fairly often. We look REALLY COOL while we are doing this too! She is hilarious, and she enjoys life and everything it has to offer!
