Not sure exactly when it happened, but to say that Teagan is asserting herself as a big 2 year old is an understatement... she has turned into my little monster :) I must say that I am very thankful that she seems to reserve all the beastly behavior for us at home! She behaves really well when others are around. Just when I think I'm going to lose my mind...she reminds me that she is still my sweet little Teagan at heart! Example: Yesterday morning, she woke up and came to get me. I walked her back to her room to change her diaper and when I sat down (ready for a challenge about changing the diaper) she gave me a hug and said, "I love you sooo much Mommy. I love you all the nights in the whole world!" I had to hold back the hormonal preggo tears... if only she could understand how much I loved hearing that! It was just what I needed to replay in my mind throughout the day each time she responded to my words with things like this: "No Mom! (not mommy anymore, just mom when she's mad) No, I will NOT to that!" I remember when I thought a simple "no" was frustrating, but now she gives complete sentences as to why she will not do something.
Teagan got some "piggy paint" in her stocking this Christmas, and was dying to have me paint her nails the other night... so much fun!
Teagan has always been a ham when it comes to the camera, but hates it when I try to video her. However, the other night she was willing to let me get my way! I know I'm biased, but she is just plain adorable :)
Here is a cute photo from the night:
