2 Years

2 years! T-W-O whole years!! I can't believe that it has been 2 years since we brought you home! And it has been amazing! You have grown so much, and it feels like it has all happened in a blink of an eye! You came home with us as a cute little squishy bundle of joy to this lively, funny, amazing, independent, sweet toddler.

You are speaking more and more words and you are starting to put them together in longer sentences (two or three words) and the best part is that your words are becoming more understandable! This has been lovely! It has led to a few less tears!

You are starting to learn your colours. You are doing great at saying the colours but labeling them correctly is another story. But I'm sure we’ll get there soon enough!

You are also recognizing your letters. And now whenever you see some you will say all the letters you know, "A, B, C, P, Q, S,T" Then mumble through the rest! We'll have to work on learning the rest of the alphabet.

When you now play you are now starting to perpend more and more. We now have little tea parties, in which you have me drink and endless supply of "tea". You also love to take care of your stuffies and wrap them up a blanket and rock them to sleep. And much to your Father's pride you love driving around your cars around and always add in the sound effects to go with them! Vroom! Vrooooooom!!!

As you continue to grow you have started to show your independence. This although a very good thing it now takes forever to get out the door has you have to do up your coat all by yourself! But the upside is you are much better at putting in your shoes on by yourself. But luckily even with this new found independence you still love to cuddle!!! This is so nice as you still fit so perfectly on my shoulder.

Sadly there is a dark side to this post....we have entered the Terrible T-W-Os!! And you seem to have read that memo and taken it to heart as you can turn from the sweetest little girl in the world to a scary hot mess of a little monster in a second! It blows my mind!!! I do feel part of the whole problem is that you don't yet have enough words to express your wants and needs so you get frustrated. Hopefully I can teach you the words to better express yourself and maybe just maybe we'll have a few less meltdowns! Fingers Crossed!!!

It has been amazing to watch you grow; it is so awesome to watch you discover things for the first time. It helps waken the child like wonder in myself, which I feel as been asleep for too long. Your ability to find humor in the simplest things helps me be grateful for all the wonderful things we have in our life. I love learning from you and I hope you can learn a little from me along the way as well.
