Today you are 2. On your first birthday you didn’t walk or talk. Now, you run and never stop talking. You sing Twinkle Twinkle little Star repeating
UP above the world UP above the world over and over.
You are so pretty and so funny and so silly. You pretend cry and make sad face with your little bottom lip sticking out.
You laugh hysterically and give yourself hiccups. You look for mommy all the time. Our conversation on the way home from daycare in the car
You – mommy
Me Mommy’s at work
me Yes princess
me mommy’s at work
me Yes princess.
Repeat about 10 more times
Sometimes you mix it up. Sometimes when I say Mommy’s at work you clap and say yeah mommy. And then make me do it also
Or the conversation is bus yes. there’s a bus truck yes there’s a truck TRUCK yes it’s still a truck Now the truck is leaving say bye bye truck
BYE BYE TRUCK SEE YA LATER (of course it’s not as clear as that but since I can’t spell what you actually say, I am improvising)
I love being with you. I love when you see me you run to me and hug me. I love when we are walking down the street you stop and hug my leg for no reason. I love that you try to trick me into carrying you by being the cutest little 2 year old in the world.
You make the best happy face and surprise face.
You make your mommy so happy when you give her hugs and kisses
Your favorite new word is kay. Princess do you want some cheese kay
princess do you want to watch Ernie kay
princess do you want to go outside kay
princess do you want to see grandma and grandpa kay
Princess do you want to go night night NO and then you fall asleep. You are only 2 and can’t stay awake forever.
Now if you could only get potty trained by the end of the day, you would stop being a big stinkbutt.
