Happy Birthday, Avrie!

So grown up.

One year ago.

Two years ago.

Dear Queen Bee,

You are two. And boy do you know it! Your favorite thing to say is "NO, Mommy". Your vocabulary is out of this world. You can talk in full sentences and let us know anything and everything that is on your mind. Your little imagination is just bursting out. Dolls and all things pink are finally catching your attention. I just love watching you discover yourself and the world every single day...you are quite the amazing little thing.

My favorite time of the day is cuddling you before putting you in your bed for the night. You dictate to me which songs to sing. "Avrie's little lamb. Nolan's little lamb. Hole in the sea. Row boat. Rock-a-bye baby. ABC's (which you can sing along with...and don't miss a letter!) Be a candle." At this point I usually say "No more. Time for bed". Then you say "Story of Jesus." How am I supposed to turn you down?

Keeping up with Nolan is #1. You're already riding a big girl bike just like Nolan. Playing copycat is what you do best. You love to snuggle, give kisses, read books, play chase and hide-n-seek with Daddy, eat "bunny crackers, Mommy", play outside, have extended bath time and fight with your brother.

I love you heaps and heaps and want you to slow down and not grow up so fast.

Love,
Mommy
