Chick Pea — Twenty-Two Months

YOh this girl! She is certain to be an engineer…or a CEO…or an engineer CEO. The girl is crazy smart and fearless…except when it comes to¬†garbage trucks. Garbage trucks send her over the edge. Nonetheless, this smart, resourceful girl is going places.


At twenty-two months, Chick Pea:

  • signs. A lot! We watch either Baby Signing Time OR Signing Time every morning. She eats it up. Makes my heart so happy.
  • plays kitty. And puppy. Too cute.
  • has the quickest hands in the west…especially if I am wearing her on my back. I’m always shocked to discover what she is holding…a book she grabbed off a shelf…a cup…a hairbrush. It’s always a fun surprise.
  • is teaching her baby sister to sign the word “more.” Swoon.
  • can remove the yard stick that we placed through the handles of the kitchen drawers…to lock her out of them. We’re in so much trouble.
  • whilst removing the yard stick one day, she took out the girls plates and cups from a drawer and set the table. Set the table, folks. This girl does not mess around. Did I mention she is twenty-two months??
  • is such a good mama to Sweet Pea. The other day I walked out of the room, leaving Sweet Pea in her high chair with a bowl of rice cereal nearby. When I returned, Chick was standing on a chair, feeding Sweet Pea cereal…and cleaning off her face with a rag.
  • likes to clean. I’ll give her a rag and let her loose to walk around the house to clean surfaces. She adores this activity. (And I adore her.)
  • spent time with our Picciuti family. I have an adorable photo of Chick Pea sitting in Gramps’ lap. They are making the same face. Toooooo cute.
  • has finally mastered the trampoline. For months now, she would sit on it…and maybe bend her knees…but no jumping. Such a joy to watch her play and laugh as she jumps.
  • calls all fruits and veggies “apple.” Wonderfully, the girl loves her “apples.” Glad to be raising a healthy eater!
  • is fascinated with “airpanes” and always points them out gleefully, “Airpane, airpane!”
