Time is just flying by at a crazy pace...I meant to do a quarter-year update on Carlie, but I don't know where the time went! Our baby girl is definitely not a baby anymore! Carlie is now THREE AND A HALF!
Overall, Carlie is a very sweet little girl who loves to sing and get lost in her imaginative play. She loves, loves, loves to have her sister as a playmate, but she also has no problems playing alone with her babies, kitchen, magnet blocks, dollhouse, or Paw Patrol characters. Carlie also enjoys playing all sorts of games...Go Fish, Hungry, Hungry Hippos, Snail's Pace Race, Memory, Bingo, etc.
Despite trying probably 3 more times since our last update, Carlie is still not potty trained. She has shown many times over that she has complete control of the functions, but for whatever reason, she just has this crazy fear of letting it go on the potty. We've just decided to back off for a while again see what happens in another couple of months.
Right now, Carlie is about 38" tall and weighs about 32 pounds! She wears size 7-8 shoes & mostly 4T clothing. She has become a bit opinionated of her clothing now & will insist upon dresses and skirts going down past her knees or she will. not. wear. them! It makes dressing her for school & getting out the door a challenge sometimes!
Carlie loves going to preschool (and lunch bunch!) & has definitely been showing signs of growth in the two months since she's started. Although still shy, she definitely doesn't take as long to open up & seems to be slowly making friends with other kids in her class. She also LOVES dance class & I love to watch the bond grow as Haddy takes Carlie under her wing in dance class and really looks out for her. It warms my heart so much. I can't wait to see what the next months will bring!
