Since Isabel has turned 3, it seems to me that she has passed the "terrible two" stage. She is more polite, for the most part she does what I ask her to do, and she is so helpful. Now don't get me wrong, she has her moments, when she gets selfish and doesn't want to share, or doesn't want to take her shoes off before going to bed.
That kid loves shoes. She can spend an hour in her closet trying on shoes that don't even fit her anymore. She loves wearing dresses and slippers, and if you give her lipgloss she, can sit for what seems like eternity applying and re-applying. I had to telkl her yesterday that you only apply lipstick twice a day (at least if you buy the one that stays on forever).
Emma is now in her "first adolescense (terrible twos)". "No" is now her favorite word. And if she doesn't get her way, she'll throw what ever is in her hand clear across the room. That girl has a good arm on her. She constantly picks fights with her older sister. Scratching, pulling hair, has even bit her once or twice. Even through all this, she is still the cutest little thing. It's hard for me to get mad at her, cause she just smiles. Her favorite thing is Dora the Explorer. She will have me read her book over and over again. I need to get her a new one. I will try to remember these times, because even though they are difficult at times, she'll only be 2 once.
