I can’t believe our Amalia Marie is THREE years old already! She is growing up so fast. She weighed 23 pounds at her doctors visit the other day. I think her little sister will soon surpass her. She wears 18-24 month clothes mostly, but has a few 2t things. Amalia is all potty trained and seldom has an accident. She has been out of diapers for about two months. She did really well once she got used to the idea. She was afraid of the height of the toilet for a bit so she didn’t want to go, but she is fine with it now. She does have a fear of public bathrooms because she doesn’t have her potty seat, so we will continue to work on that. She took to it very quickly with only a handful of days with accidents before she caught on.
Amalia is a pretty picky eater. She much prefers to graze all day than to eat meals. She likes peanut butter toast, quesadillas, mac and cheese, pizza, nuggies (dinosaur chicken nuggets) and fruits. She loves crackers and sweets most of all. She’s always asking to go out for “eye keem” (ice cream).
Amalia loves to sing and dance. Baby Shark, Twinkle Twinkle and Old McDonald are her favorites. She loves anything Pinkfong and Cocomelon on YouTube. Her favorite thing to play is kitchen and baby dolls. She also likes Polly Pockets – though those have to be kept up a lot because of Noa – and barbies are also a hit. She also likes to draw and finger paint.
Amalia is a perfect mixture of bossy, sassy, sweet, and snuggly. She is one hundred percent sugar and spice and everything nice. Its so crazy that she will be off to preschool next year! I can’t believe how fast she is growing up.
