Here we are, one year older.
I just re-read Aulia's two years old birthday post and it's funny. Not a lot has changed in a year. She's just gotten bigger. All her favorites are still favorites.. pocoyo, barney, counting, hotdog, biscuits, chocolate milk. She loves to dance, singing, snuggle (oh my goodness, she LOVES to snuggle), she's obsessed with Frozen, her dolls & princess dresses. She's getting better at dressing herself.
If I had to describe Aulia' in one word it would be sweet. She's the biggest little sweetheart. She's silly & sensitive & does what she's asked & just loves to be home and cozy and comfortable. She's my little homie. Sure, she still has her moments..if there's something she wants she'll ask and ask and ask until you come to realize there's just no doing anything else until you've taken care of whatever it is she wants. She's persistent. Her favorite word is "why?" so many of my answers are just met another "why" until I finally ask her why she thinks it is and that's usually buy me some time.
Aulia' supposed to be joining the preschool earlier this year but due to some reason, we didn't enroll her to preschool. We weren't in a hurry to get her in one so she's currently not in any school. I think she needs something, though. Whether we do swim lessons or playground session, she needs some sort of challenge outside of the walls of our house and we're excited to enter that stage of involvement in our family.
I'm not gonna lie, the first half of two was a little tough. It was true, the terrible two's had nothing on three but once she rounded the 3, she mellowed out. And I hear really good things about after three. She can be reasoned with or bargained with and she's just so much fun. It's so fun to see the world through her eyes and I completely understand how kids get spoiled. When they start "getting it".. ya know, it's amazing to see them get excited.
Happy third birthday to my little first born. Can't wait to watch you grow one year older. I think this year is gonna be a good one. Pray :)
