{amelia} : two years old

Dear Amelia,

Today you turn the big 0-2! Crazy that another year has passed us by and you have grown in so many ways. Last year on your birthday, you weren't walking and barely had any teeth. Now you don't stop running, have almost all your teeth (minus the last molars to come in) and don't ever stop talking! This year brought many changes including you starting at the day home, and with time, you have come to love it. No more tears in the morning and you get excited to go. Nothing beats picking you up after work and the door opening you saying momma!

You are my goofball who loves stickers, colouring, reading books, playing with your babies, having tea parties and doing puzzles. You have also started to play hide-n-seek, which entails you hiding in the most obvious places and us pretending we don't see you. It always ends in a fit of laughter from you!

Your babies go with you almost every day to the day home, and on the way home you always tell me that baby is sleeping {and make sleeping noises to go along with it} or that she pooped that day.  You always tell me that baby is cold, so we have to wrap her up and then she goes night night. 

You absolutely love bubbles, which means every bath has to have bubbles in it. Speaking of water- you also love to wash your hands too. You push up the sleeves on your shirt and tell me to "come momma" and grab my hand so we can go in the bathroom. 

You do not like when I take your picture lately and will say "no cheese" to me unless we take a selfie together and make funny faces. Silly girl :)

You are starting to talk way more and say things that we can actually understand. You always tell us that you are stuck (ie: in the car seat) and love to call us mommadadda. Always one word even if it's only one person in the room. You love ask to go up to the sky (meaning throw her in the air- I blame Sam for that one!) and still say thank you quite often.  

You love to be wrapped up in blankets especially after a nap or in the morning. If I ask you if you want to get dressed, you say yes and that you want to wear something "cute", haha. I might tell her that her hat, jacket and boots are cute in the morning to help get us out the door. 

You still absolutely love your bottles (or sippy cups) of milk. That calms you right down if you are melting down before bed time. You still also absolutely love pasta and would live on it if we let you. That and cookies. Always asking for cookies and mom has a rubber arm. You also love: bananas, corn, cheese, yogurt, cous cous, rice.

You are wearing size 2T in most things and size 5 shoes. Still in size 4 diapers during the day and night. 

We absolutely love you Amelia!
