“mama, stop crying! i have to turn 2!” oh my word, someone hold me…this baby girl of mine that we just brought home from the hospital is two. T.W.O. two years of love, laughter and being a mama. two years of learning what happiness truly is and being a family. at the risk of being cliche, it has gone by in the blink of an eye. two years. and on the day she is turning two, there are so many things i just have to say! and in between words, i am kissing her chubby baby cheeks endlessly.

at two years old, she is now discovering the magic of childhood. (if you missed our easter morning this year with the girls, click here to see!) she is a lover of dance parties and loves listening to music. more often than not, she can be found bobbing her head to the music in her carseat when i look in the rearview mirror. she loves to help me unload the dishwasher and gets a kick out of handing me the clean utensils, one by one. at two years old, she is a great eater and loves fruits and vegetables the most. she now has a recent love of salmon, and a long time love of cherry tomatoes and blueberries. she loves watching for daddy to come home and loves helping him get his shoes out when he changes out of his work clothes and into his casual clothes. she loves to help feed the puppies dinner and, when asked how much food they get, she will say, “half cup!”
this little sweetheart knows all of her body parts and loves pointing them out on both herself and her baby sister. and if you ask her how old she is, she will say “two!” and hold up one finger. 🙂 ask her what sound any animal makes, and she will impress you!
if these last two years have taught us anything, it’s to slow down and soak it all in. to cherish every moment, because they go by too quickly. to video everything! because the cute things she says today are so short lived. and while i love it when she masters a task or a word, i do miss those initial baby ways of doing things. being a mama has also taught me that being mama is the most important thing.
