Two years of rocking you
Two years of kissing your sweet cheeks
Two years of looking into your beautiful blue eyes
Two years of your silly facial expressions and belly laughs
Two years of loving you so intensely it makes my eyes leak a little
Two years of thanking God everyday for you
Two years of loving you but it's as if I have always known you
On the eve of your 2nd birthday, I swooped you into my arms when I got home from VBS and rocked you in the very chair I nursed you as an infant, the very chair we took your newborn photos in. I pushed back your bangs and kissed your forehead. Then I prayed and asked God to bless your future, that you would love Him with your whole heart and thanked Him for the gift it is to be your mother.
This year we have adored watching you blossom and your laid back personality shine. You go with the flow and drive along to all your sibling's activities. You miss naps or go down late and don't skip a beat. You wake up happy to see us every single day. You smile at me and pull your blanket by your check after we read no less than 5 books and sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
You love macaroni and cheese, pizza and Mexican food. You especially LOVE guacamole and will eat it by the spoonful. You are not a huge fan of cake but your like cookies, chocolate and ice cream (just a tiny bit since your belly doesn't like it).
You LOVE to dance and are starting to sing along to songs. Every time we sang Happy Birthday to you, you tried to sing along with. You can blow your birthday candles out like a champ. You love to be outside exploring, swinging (especially underdogs), swimming, and being "a big kid". You love to be the passenger in the power wheel and happily wave and turn on the music as you ride along.
You are a momma's girl and love to be at my side. You are busy and like to get into things this day. Case and point, yesterday you unrolled all the toilet paper off the roll and tattooed yourself with a red marker while I was reading the bible.
You are wearing size 3 diapers and just getting into size 2T clothes, wear a size 5 shoe and 17% for height and 64% for weight. You love life and everyday you are a ray of sunshine. Your favorite toys are purses stuffed with fun treasures, a baby doll and a stroller with an old phone of mine to take lots of photos. You always say "cheese" when I pull out the phone.
We love you so much and are so thankful God gave us you! We can't wait to see what you learn next. Our biggest prayer is that you seek God and ask Him into your heart and that you are always kind! Keep shining sweet girl, you are a miracle and like your big brother prayed on your birthday, "we are glad you are alive!"
