My Baby is Two

Dear Grace,

Where or where have the last two years gone?  It feels like just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital.  So tiny and sweet and new.  And now, well now I have a little girl with a head full of curls, a deep laugh, tons of spunk and a million words.

You delight us.  You make us laugh.  You make us crazy.  You probably have the best two year old sense of humor out there.  You probably also have the strongest will.  I've never met anyone with is much determination as you have.  I can't wait to see where it takes you.

I love to listen to you sing your babies to sleep at night.  There are about ten of them in your crib.  All perfectly lined up, pacifiers and bottles in mouths, neatly covered.  I actually don't know how you sleep.  You're a good mommy.

I love to watch you play with your brother.  You don't always get along, but you love each other so much.  Your favorite time of day is when we pick Sam up from school.  You are so excited when he gets in the car.  He says "Hi, sweetie!" and you grin from ear to ear.  It makes my heart melt.

I love how you want to do everything "self".  Okay, sometimes I love it!  While your brother would let me dress him still, you wrestle with your own clothes and do a pretty good job getting them on.  Even your socks.  You have pretty strong ideas about what you'll wear.  You love dresses and you have never met a pair of shoes that you didn't want to bring home.

I love what a peanut you are.  36th percentile for height and 63 for weight (Sorry my dear, you got my body type).   Although you are shorter than all your friends, nobody messes with you!  People are always amazed when they see you playing with your brother at the park.  You keep up, and considering what an athlete your brother is, it's pretty impressive for someone your age.

So Happy Birthday my Gracie Magoo.  We love you.  


PS:  Would you mind doing me a favor.  Can you try to take this year slow?

LOVE Etsy!  This is the best deal out there.  It's a baby bed complete with blanket and pillow.  I also got a matching diaper bag with burp cloth, bib and cloth diaper.  Grace sleeps with hers every night.
