2 years! I can’t look at you now and imagine you, my chubby little toddler on the cusp of becoming a preschooler as the sweet baby full of spunk despite being born 5 weeks early. You have grown from a tiny little curly haired quiet baby in your first few days of life to a child who has ALWAYS had a voice that was meant to be heard. I admire you ability to stand up for yourself, perhaps it has something to do with being the second child, but I have never had to worry that you were being left out or mistreated…you would have let me know.
You have a smile and a personality that can charm even the coldest heart or soothe even the most frustrated Mom. You are definitely your own person, and very different from your sister. I love that! I love how you can smile and just brighten my day, how you are so quick to give a hug or a kiss, how you love your little brother just a little too much and how you can annoy your sister with just a look.
Unlike your sister, you are not interested in coloring (although you no longer eat the crayons or markers which is a HUGE step in the right direction).
But you talk so much better than she did a this age! Matter of fact, you amaze me with your understanding of language and the way the world works!
You are counting, jumping, climbing, running and riding your bike like you wouldn’t believe.
You are such an inquisitive creature, now I just have to harness that tendency in the right direction!
Anna, I am so blessed to be your mother and I can’t wait to see what person you become.
I love you baby (sorry this is so late in being posted)
