My sweetie pie honey bunch is 2.5 years old! And as you can see from these photos, she’s rock’in toddlerhood! My Dhara-dear is a precious, precious gift to Greg and I. We love hearing all the interesting things she has to say. And boy does she have a lot to say! Since her brothers arrived, she’s learned to play on her own more since mama is busy with two babes. It’s fascinating to watch her use her imagination.
Speaking of brothers, I love how she loves on them — I happened to walk in on her one day as she says to one of her sweet brothers in a crackly old lady voice, “Hey there little fella!” She loves kissing them and just being near them. She showers them with, “Oh, you are so cute!” She always wants to hold them — not a very safe idea because she puts her arms around their midsection and lifts without a care. Not a good thing!
Dhara definitely seems older than her 2.5 years. She loves being outside, she loves being in her pajamas, and she loves chocolate. And like always, she loves to be read to. Some of our favorite books these days are the Little House on the Prairie children’s books like, “Dance at Grandpa’s” — which I didn’t know existed until Greg and Dhara brought it home from the library! Love it! Can’t wait to start the series with my girl…
Her hair is getting long. I’ve never cut it, but I’m debating whether I should or not because I’ve heard cutting keeps hair healthy? Although I know I’ll feel really bad cutting it because I love seeing her wear her twisted chignons proudly and beautifully. By the way, interesting to know that her daddy is, by far, the best at putting her hair up — even better than my mom or I. [Thanks to Greg’s mom who bought Dhara the cute tutu dress. I’m not a big tutu fan, but this one is adorable!]
