I don't even know where to start because I think I am in denial. Friday, is January 10th, that means that little Miss Sassy, is turning 2. TWO - how is that possible?
Two years ago, we were throwing her brother a 3rd Birthday party and then she decided to come three days later, at 36 weeks. We should have know then, that she was going to be this sassy. Her way or the highway and the problem, she is too damn cute to not give her, her way.
How do you resist a face like this....
And this face, it has sass written all over it.
In the past month her vocabulary has quadrupled. She has started the ever dreaded "why" phrase. "Why, Henry sleeping, mommy.", "Why, Daddy not home, mommy.", "Why, Rudy barking, mommy." Then you answer her and she says, "Oh." or "Oh Man."
I think our personal favorite is when she trips or falls and you hear her yell, "I'm, okay." The other day she was brushing her teeth and you hear crash, and then you hear her yell, "No, worry...I'm okay!!, I'm okay!" You can't help but smile or laugh.
She decided in December that her crib was more of a jungle gym so we had to make it into a day bed. Every morning, I am greeted with this.
How could you be mad when she is smiling at you. We tell her clean it up and she starts shoving it back into the drawer. The transition has been going okay, naps are hard, but we keep trying.
She will eat blueberries until she looks like the kid from Willy Wonka. She calls them strawberries and if you dare give her a strawberry, she will yell at you. She eats when she wants and I think she would drink a gallon a milk a day, if we would let her. She is tall just like her brother, but sadly she got my hair. It's cute,but there are days when it is just out of control. She loves her Owl lovie and if you touch it, she will ask you, "Why." She loves her Henry and seriously can put him in his place. She doesn't take anything from anyone and she will let you know. She gives the best hugs and will snuggle when she wants to, don't even ask her, she does it on her own time. She is our Bear and her personality is infectious.
The thought of her being 2 is a little scary, but we can't wait to see what another year brings.
We love you to pieces Mare Bear!
