And now? I have a TWO YEAR OLD!
|Yay! I'm two and got two thousand presents!|
The Cake of My Wet Dreams
|It tasted as good as it looked!|
|Yeah...I didn't really decorate.|
|Party at the Step2 Store.|
(Yep, that's me, bottom right. Pretending to be the birthday girl, since she couldn't be bothered to stop and open gifts.)
|Everyone was running around and having so much fun!|
There were a bunch of kids who were blurs in every photograph, including Olivia!
At Age Two, Olivia is soooooo cute and funny. She talks all.the.time. and definitely has some strong opinions about how things should go. Today, she went to the pantry to get a snack and said, "Open now, pweeze." And sometimes, when she wants something really bad, her please is so intense that she makes fists and her little face turns red while she says please.
Also? When she says juice? It sounds like she's saying douche. "Douche, Pweeze."
When she needs a diaper change, she makes a nasty face and says "poopy stinky." And then when you're done changing her diaper, she says, "all done poopies."
She knows the entire alphabet, and I'm not positive but I think she can count to 10.
When we pull into the garage, she throws both hands in the air and screams "HOME!" When you ask her if she wants something, instead of saying yes, she says sure. But it sounds like shore. Shoooore!
We've gone to so many parties lately that she has started to ask for cake on a regular basis. When we had her cake on the counter the night before her birthday party, she kept pointing at it and saying, "party time now!"
|Cupcakes are acceptable in lieu of actual cake.|
Any words ending in "ing" are said ending in "in." Stackin, dancin, comin, runnin.
She talks about her plans or what happened during the day. I told her we were going to my friend Michelle's house, and she said to me, "Aidan, Addison, bounce house." I'm like, OK then. You've got your evening planned!
|Pretty nice little Monday with her BFF Addison and her boyfriend Aidan.|

Food that isn't carbs
|Our new couch does this to her hair.|
She hasn't met her (very teeny tiny) little sister yet, but we show her pictures every day. At night, when we go to bed and it's "Stoy time" we read her a Big Sister book, and she loves it. I'm sure she will love Ainsley.
I'm going back to work this week, and I can't imagine how it will be when I can't see her all the time like I do now. I will miss her silly ass.
I feel like I should be able to describe her better and write something better for her to celebrate the second year of her life. Something that she might read some day and know that she was the brightest part of all my days. And I feel guilty that my mind is so scattered from trying to just function that I can't pull something together.
But I spend all my free moments with her, running and playing and laughing and just generally being madly in love with my little Olivia. I think that will suffice.
