2 years old

Its official..
We have a 2 year old.
Where does the time go?
Her birthday was on Sunday (General Conference) so we had a nice relaxing day and that night we had family and friends come over for some dinner, cupcakes and ice cream. Last year I did an owl cupcake cake and this year (and every year to come) I think I'm going to stick with the cupcake thing. They are just so easy to make and then people can just take one instead of me sitting there cutting up a bunch of slices of cake. Berklee loved having everyone there and couldn't wait to show her cousins her present. Thank you everyone for coming!

some of my favorite things:
  • She is a chatterbox. Literally will not stop talking. Always asking where are you going? Where's dad? What are you doing? Look at this, look at that. I love you. She will say full sentences.. its just amazing!
  • along with talking she will sing sing sing. She loves popcorn popping on the apricot tree, happy birthday, abc's, tiny turtle, choo choo train, itsy bitsy spider, twinkle twinkle little star, I'm so glad when daddy comes home. And she knows almost all the words to all of them. She loves making up her own songs too and its pretty funny to listen to all the words she puts together to make a song.
  • She loves to count. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13. She can sometimes go past but usually is done by 13.
  • Knows all her abc's and when she sings it I about die its so dang cute!
  • She is back to my little fish. Last year she just wanted to walk around the pool and throw balls into it. This year we have gone to the splash pad and swimming pool and she throws a FIT when we leave and does not get out of the water until the last second.
  • After I've done her hair she will touch it and say "thank-you mom" in the sweetest voice. Then after I've taken it out and she's sometimes in tears she will turn and say "thank-you mom". So cute!
  • Still loves her food and sleep.
  • Some favorite things she says: oh darnit, oh daisy (oopsie daisy), oh goodness, funny goose/silly goose.
  • Loves all her friends from our playgroup and gets SO excited to play with them every week.
  • Will take my phone when I'm talking to someone she knows and walk around the house talking to them (while holding the phone to her ear with her shoulder) :)
We love you Berklee girl. You bring us such joy. You are such a fun, spunky, caring and sensitive girl. Thank you for being part of our family.
