Kyleigh at Age 2

Kyleigh is full of energy, slightly defiant, and fiercely independent! She climbs things, runs everywhere she goes, and can make an asbsolute wreck of the house in about 4 minutes flat! Her hair has finally grown and is very curly! It's so cute! I just gave her her very first haircut yesterday, and it was only a trim to get the ends back to looking nice again. Everyone remarks on her curly hair. She's really a beautiful kid, if I do say so myself!
She's talking in almost full sentences now. She can pretty easily convey her thoughts and ideas, although she's not as socially interactive as some kids her age. She's more independent and thoughtful about things. (I think she gets that from her Daddy.) She's very smart and very athletic.

Her favorite shows right now are Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and the Doodlebops (ugh). She loves to read books, play with her Little People (and their cars, airplanes, and fire trucks) and she has some little hand-sized animals that she loves to carry around too. She loves playing outside and going to the park, although it's quickly getting too cold outside to do that for much longer.
Kyleigh is beginning to really like her sister a lot. Up to this point, she really didn't interact with the baby much, but now she's kissing on her and talking to her and bringing her toys. It's pretty cute. :) We're starting up (again for like the 4th time) with potty-training. *sigh* This is a long process. She's definitely smart enough, I think she's just choosing not to learn. Oh well.

She tries my patience a lot, but for the most part she's a sweet kid and I can't wait until she gets just a little bit older where we can start really having conversations and doing projects together! Homeschooling her will be really exciting! Matt wants me to start with her when she turns 3. We'll see how that goes.
And that's a quick update on our sweet Kyleigh Abigail.
