Evelyn LOVES buttons right now. We actually had to take her to the hall in church a couple weeks ago because she was getting very upset that Daddy wouldn’t let her unbutton his shirt during sacrament meeting. Her uncle Nelson just got here today and within hours of arriving Evelyn was doing and undoing his buttons for him. Luckily he was quite drowsy due to jetlag and didn’t really care. She’s pretty good with them. Unless they’re really tiny or in some awkward place (like on her back) she can get them done and undone. She has a button up dress that I’ve pretty much just put away, because she doesn’t remained clothed if I let her wear it.
Evelyn also loves Kiki’s Delivery Service, which if you don’t know, is a movie. She asks for it every time I let her and Avery watch a movie and Avery is getting quite tired of it. She calls it Kiki’s wivvy suvice. It’s cute.
Evelyn is also getting to be rather social. Today we were at a friend’s house and there was another 2 year old there. I found them both down in the garage and Evelyn was explaining to the other little girl “That’s not mine car. That’s your car.” Actually it was neither of their car, but I thought it was a funny little conversation to have with a friend. She really likes to play pretend with Avery too. We recently moved them into the same bed together and now most mornings they sit in bed and tell each other stories or play games for a while after they wake up.
This morning I went in to get them for breakfast and Avery was laying on the bed and Evelyn was sitting next to her. Evelyn said “That’s her tempature and she’s has a feva!” They like to play doctor, babies, family, anything they can think of I suppose.
Right now Evelyn really likes jumping, singing, háztartásikeks (they’re kind of like sweet crackers), cucumbers, dresses, buttons, movies, sesame street, playing outside, cornflakes (which she calls fonecakes), and playgrounds.
And, I almost forgot! Evelyn is potty trained! I’ve been scared to say anything anywhere because I’m just sure I’ll jinx myself, but I think it’s safe now. We put her in underpants a month or six weeks ago and we had accidents for a couple days, but after 2 days or so she realized that she could control when she peed and a week or two later she figured out how to get up on the seat and down by herself and started going on her own when she needed to. She was crazy easy to potty train and I pretty much couldn’t even believe it I was so happy, because Avery was so much more difficult with this.
We still have accidents occasionally and I’m careful to remind her to sit on the potty before we go anywhere, but I think she’s doing great! She’s dry sometimes at night too!
