I would definitely say Mira has reached the stage declared as the 'terrible two's'. Mira Catherine is constantly trying to assert her independence. She's had the word 'no' down for many, many months. But now I can't tell you how many times a day she uses it! She wants to climb up to her car seat herself, put on her own tights, go potty, get her own drink, etc. I just have to keep asking myself, "Am I in that much of a hurry?". I usually have the time to allow her to do whatever it is she wants to do (within reason). The times I am in a hurry, she is quick to express her displeasure.
But this chubby cherub is just so cute and funny I can't help but be softened to her temper tantrums. She loves wearing dresses (refuses pants every day!), singing (especially to princess music or High School Musical), and twirling to show off her dress. She is a fun companion. I really enjoy the times we have a few minutes to run an errand all by ourselves. She's cuddly and full of things to talk about. Just adorable.
