An Interactive Twilight Experience.
I thought I wouldn't survive the teething phase. I got through that pretty well. The crying made me feel sad for Aerie rather than angry for my loss of sleep. They can't help how they deal with pain. Jake never cried while he was teething and if Rachel and Rebecca did, I certainly don't remember it. Perhaps in time the teething memories will fade with this one too, who knows. Anyway.
If there's one thing that IS consistent with all 4 of my kids, it's the Terrible 2s. I probably have the most vivid memories of Jake's terrible 2s phase. From the get go, Jacob was always adventurous. Back then I was in better shape and could keep up with him. I recall one night waking to an odd feeling that I should check on him. Surely enough, I went into his bedroom and the window as wide open. He had taken a towel, tucked it in the back of his pajama shirt like a cape and was standing on top of the back shed. I got out there just in time to catch him before he hit the ground. That was the last day we had windows that didn't have locks.
I wouldn't put it past Aerie to do something similar. She loves to jump on her bed and pretend to be Elena of Avalor or Sofia the First or Izzy from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She loves to sing and dance and she's curious about everything. She is into EVERYTHING. Tiff has had to put locks on the cupboards and the cabinets and latches on the drawers. When I say everything, I truly mean everything. Including the toilet. Tiff has the place secure as Fort Knox!
