I can't believe 2 years has passed since you were born! I fell in love with you the second I saw you, and fall more in love each day. You are so cute, and so smart, and so funny. I can't imagine my life before you. You are such a big girl now - you're favorite phrases are "I do it!" and "I did it!" - you're VERY independent. You ask "why" after everything we tell you, and you want to do everything big sis does. You can count to 5, and say MOST of your ABC's. You know that you're "2" and you tell everyone. You have no fear, you will slide down the biggest slide into the pool or at the playground, you will climb something 10 feet tall without hesitation. Both of your knees are scarred and constantly have scabs on them, but you don't care. Nothing phases you. You will eat almost any food, and try anything once. You love baby dolls, and you LOVE dressing up! You wear a necklace almost everywhere you go. You aren't a big fan of reading books yet, you have too much to do and would rather be running and playing than sitting and reading. You love Dora (you call her "Bore"), and you love watching "TB" and "mobies". You are getting ready to start your new school next week, and I can't wait to see how you grow and learn, and how many new friends you make! You are almost potty trained, and I think when you start your new school you will learn quickly. Kylie is your best friend, and you follow her everywhere and do everything just like her. As soon as you get up, you look for her and you kiss and hug her every night before bed. You are so loving - I call you my monkey because when I try to put you down, you wrap your little arms and legs around me like a monkey! You love to cuddle and be held (by mom), and I love holding you! You give hugs and kisses all the time. You would rather sit on my lap to eat dinner, and eat off my plate instead of yours. You love "chips and cheese" from Mexican Villa, and we go there once a week, and get mints afterwards! You love the slides at White Water, and floating in the wave pool.
I can't wait to see what the next year brings, and how you change and grow! You are pretty small for your age right now - you are much smaller than Kylie was at your age, which has proven difficult when trying to recycle clothing! You are my little girl, and you will always be my baby, no matter how old you are. I am so blessed to have you, I love you more than anything! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
