At 2 Years Old


At 2 years old you:

-say all sorts of things. some very clearly, some still a mystery.
-answer "two" quite proudly and consistently when asked how old you are.
-are not exactly on the cusp of being potty trained. we'll get there. no rush.
-eat so, so good. you eat such grown up food. saurkraut and brown rice. salads with vinegar and olive oil dressing. grainy breads. 
-still love your pacifier. 
-think "kee kee" is just so cool.
-tell us "good girl, Daddy!" and use your manners very well and in all the right places.
-like to get your hair done in the salon.
-are a huge fan of breakfast
-you love barney on netflix and ask for it, and i'm good with that because it is so positive and cheesy and absolutely NO bad attitudes. 
-have become very close to me and want me the majority of the time. i am quite fine with this.
-say all the sounds farm (and some jungle) animals make. can say most of 1-10, just not necessarily in consecutive order. learning colors. learning letters.
-have started dancing and doing funny grown up movements with your hips and hands and eyes and expressions. 
-love to be tickled most of the time. and you make it VERY clear when it's not the time to tickle and you're not in the mood.
-love to have your teeth daily brushed because it means you get a chewable vitamin afterwards.
-looove babies at church and in public. parents always look at me like "seriously? she's so gentle with him!". force them to take their pacifiers, because who wouldn't want a sassa?!, wipe their faces and noses with a kleenex. kiss them. rock their carseat. hold their face in her hands. you're such a big sis.
-want to see what's going on on the kitchen counter all the time. i'm sure it gets very old looking at the backs of our thighs and the white cabinets. i don't blame you, girl. 
-love to meet my clients and be back there in the salon with the big girls. which all of my clients absolutely love.
-look at your dad with stars in your eyes sometimes. i know how you feel.
-are very, very obedient. i wish i could record and save forever the way you say "yes sir" and "yes ma'am"


Oh, and also...we adore you.

Miller wasn't trained anywhere near at just turned 2. I would imagine most kids aren't. So no sweat. There is a MAJOR difference between 2 and 3 I think. I want to see what she says when she doesn't want to be tickled!!! Haha!!! That's funny.
