Whenever someone asks me how old you are, I have to stop and think. I am having a hard time believing that you are ALMOST TWO YEARS OLD! How did time sneak away like that? You act more like a two year old than a one year old so that should have been my first clue that you are a big girl now. And seriously, you do realize you are a big girl. You are pushing babies in strollers, helping feed your sissy, putting things away, singing along to your favorite songs, imitating EVERY SINGLE THING we do…I love it!
Things You Love
Walking your sister
Working out with mommy and daddy
Playing in water
Helping around the house
Baby dolls (and real babies)
All of your friends
Almonds+Manas (bananas)+beyayas (blueberries)+Lalalalala (oatmeal)
Things You Don’t Love
Dirty things (although it’s ok to play in)
Bella eating your food
Getting your clothes messy
I love that you love everybody. You know who your friends are and talk about them often. Each night we talk about “OOWEN. GRACE. ELWEESE. HEHE. BECKBECK” Those are the friends names who have stuck, but you are adding to that list every day. You apparently have a thing for older boys (ummmm excuse me!) and they seem to be smitten with you. I think you are intrigued by their boyish behaviors. You LOVE LOVE LOVE animals. You get mad because we won’t bring home every cat you find. No idea why you picked cats to be your favorite considering mommy and daddy will not be having a cat. You are hilarious…you have the best facial expressions and can do the silliest things to make everyone laugh. You are a copycat. You imitate all the moves on our P90 workout videos. It’s funny to see you stretch your neck, do high knees, and yell “GO!” while running around the house.
Baby girl, in case you were curious, we love every single ounce of you. God knew exactly what He was doing when He gave us you. You are such a beautiful girl, inside and out. We are so proud of you and can’t wait to see what the last 4 months until your 2nd birthday will bring.
