…she is most definitely going to ask for sprinkles to go with it.
Earlier this month social media was on fire for donuts, and I’m talking ON FIRE! It just so happens that my daughter totally lucked out that National Donut Day landed on a morning when we were completely out of milk. Luckily, Dunkin’ Donuts down the road had a plethora of milk (and donuts).
National Donut Day is probably one of the best “holidays” to celebrate…especially when you’re a toddler. She’s had bites of one here and there, and she gets an occasional donut hole when her mama needs a coffee fix from DD, but she’s never had a whole donut before. There’s a first time for everything! So what happens if you give a toddler a donut for the very first time?
I couldn’t even handle how she was eating her donut. I mean, who wouldn’t want to eat the best part first?
During these next pictures, I told her to show me her donut and to smile when I said, “say cheese.” It totally doesn’t look like she’s smiling at all, but that scrunched up nose is too cute to tell her otherwise.
And then, the donut-eating finale:
Get it, girl!
And because I haven’t written about my favorite two-year-old in awhile, here are some things she’s saying/doing these days:
+ Says, “picka upa” like an Italian. Staying true to her Italian roots, I suppose!
+ Called rollie pollies “hello pollies.” She also doesn’t mind stomping on them, which is a little sad for those poor unsuspecting bugs
+ Says, “Oh, my goodness,” “Wow…amazing,” “All by myself,” “No, I do it,” “Mines,” and, “I’ll talk to you later!” (Among other words, of course. Those are just the cute ones out of the bunch)
+ Loves singing her ABC’s
+ Recently started saying, “See ya later, alligator,” and it’s just about the cutest thing
+ Really enjoys going “upside down,” doing flips, and having random dance parties
+ Knows her left from her right
+ Puts her shoes on “all by herself”
+ Always says, “mama sad.” (I’m not, I promise!)
+ Picks out things for Mama, Papa, and Maddie based on the item’s size (Papa bite, Mama bite, Julia bite)
She also likes pink donuts with sprinkles and asked for “more, please” the second she finished eating the top of her donut.
