Here are some pictures and some facts about Mercy...
At 2 years old, Mercy
~weighs about 24 lbs and is 33" tall
~talks quite a bit
~says "nope" and shakes her head up and down (yes) when she means "yes"
~loves to sing and loves to watch shows that have singing
~can name all her siblings (quite a feat!), even baby Genna
~still likes to help me do the laundry (telling me whose clothes are whose)
~names whose towels are whose in the bathroom (really an interesting accomplishment), obviously she's very observant
~is a copycat (see how well she combs Tirzah's hair below)
~read her birthday card to me...it was unintelligible. :)
~refuses to say "two" or hold up two fingers when I ask her how old she is. She is a bit shy, and I think she knows this is a social question.
~loves to play with baby dolls. She dresses them in Genna's clothes and buckles them into Genna's car seat. She hasn't put them in Genna's swing yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
~loves to dress herself. She just loves clothes in general. She often empties Genna's dresser trying to fit into the tiny clothes.
~is fast. She loves to run away!
Mercy sure is a fun addition to our family! I sure hope she's feeling better soon. Happy Birthday big girl!
