Such a joy

Eggy has been acting like such a butthead lately.  Two years old is no fun.  Tantrums and mood swings?  No thank you.  It's bad enough that even her dad (the one who thinks Eggy can do no wrong) called her a jerk.  Last week, Eggy almost threw a fit because I closed the closet door.  Why?  Because she wanted to close it herself.  Any little thing that doesn't go her way, it's like the end of the world.
I do try to let her have her way as much as I can.  It's not worth it to fight about every little thing.  Sometimes, I feel for her because it must be hard to be a toddler.  I know some of the things she does is her way of trying to gain control.  (You know what would be the ultimate sign of independence, Eggy?  If you could wipe your own butt.)  But then, there are those other times.  And that's what time outs are for.  Me and time outs?  BFFs.  I love time outs.  Eggy even knows where to go when I say, "Time out!"
Sometimes, she even puts herself in time out!  I looove eet!  When I feel like she's going to have a meltdown, I ask her if she needs a time out and she actually says yes.  So she'll go sit in her spot for a little bit and a few minutes later, she's actually calmer.  Not always but most of the time.
And her new thing is, "I mad.  Eggy mad."  I ask her why she's mad and she just shrugs.  Sigh.  Her teenage years are going to be so much fun.

Hey stranger!

Yikes, has it really been over a month since I blogged?  Bad mommy.  It's kind of hard to get back into blogging when I haven't done it in so long.  Plus, I haven't been taking very many pictures of Eggy and I don't like to post without pictures.  I think I haven't been taking as many pictures of Eggy lately because well, as far as milestones go, there aren't much left.  Even if I were to follow her around with a camera all day, there's not really anything new or exciting that she's doing.  But I really need to get back into it.
Anyway, I do have a good reason for the lack of blogging.  We finally moved into our house!  Um, okay, we moved last month but I've been busy!
So Eggy has adjusted really well to the move.  I think because she likes her new room.  She calls it her "blue room" because duh, we painted it blue.  She likes showing it off to people when they come over.  And we moved her out of the crib and into her own big girl bed.  She's doing okay in it.  She still wakes up during the night and cries but she did that when she was in the crib anyway.  But at least she pretty much stays put in the bed until morning.  Although, there may have been a few times that she fell off the bed.  No worries, it's just a mattress on the floor, for now.

Here's a recap of the past month in pictures.
