You are 2 years, 2 months old now. I know you might already know this, but I have to say it anyway: I love you with all my heart.
From the moment your eyes open in the morning, until the second they close at night, you are ALL joy. You are fearless. There is nothing you can’t do (or think you can’t do!)
If you see something that needs to be climbed, you climb it! Whether it’s a tree or a ladder or the kitchen cabinets – you always find a way to get to the top. And believe it or not, you always find a way to get yourself back down again, too.
You are talking up a storm now. You speak not just in sentences, but paragraphs! You love to say: Look at MEEEEE!
Oh yes, I can!,
No way, not now, not ever, never!!!
I love you with…heart.
You love going on adventures. Whether it’s to the grocery store, or a trip to the park – you want to go! You love going to Disneyland – which for awhile you pronounced: Sillyland. Now you can pronounce it correctly, but I still loved it when you called it Sillyland.
You love your family – we are your whole world. You think your Daddy is the greatest person of all! Daddy can do NO wrong… 🙂
You are one of THE sisters…not just the baby anymore. You love to play with your sisters, and will follow them anywhere they lead. Although lately, YOU’VE been the one leading!
You love to dress up in your sisters’ clothes, and often wear Ginger’s dresses instead of your own. You love clothes and shoes, and pretty things. You love snowglobes and fragile jewelry boxes, and the sparkly necklaces. You love everything that sparkles!
You do NOT like to get your feet or your shoes dirty – and in fact, yesterday, you wanted to leave the beach because you got sand on your shoes!
Of course, sometimes you also like to go barefoot…
You are a great beam of sunshine in our lives, and I can’t imagine our world without you in it. You are everything and everything is you.
I am so grateful for our two years and two months together – every single day, you teach me about joy. You are a happy girl and well, the love of life and the joy you bring to each day is contagious. We love you with all our hearts and we always will.
