Cecilia is 2!


Can you believe she's 2 already?


The little girl who made us a family of four...


And couldn't help but look adorable whether awake...


Or asleep...


The toothless grin...



The loving sister...


The nose scruncher...


And baby model...


The gleeful one-year-old...


And protesting daughter...


Sometimes happy to be accessorized...


And sometimes scowling...


Still with chubby cheeks...


And now as a big sister...


Is TWO today!

It's hard not to compare Cecilia to John Paul at 2, but kind of fun to look back at how different they are.  Cecilia is nowhere near where John Paul was academically (he was almost reading at this point) but she talks SO much more and so much better.  I always laugh at those "your baby" updates I get in my email - apparently she should be saying 2-4 word sentences by now.  We get sentences like, "When you gwow up you will wide a pink bicycle!" or "I'm widing a horsey horse to wide to my nap!" or "I heared a helicopter when I'm in John Paul's bed!"  Yeah, the grammar isn't there, but it's pretty remarkable to us!

She is relishing her new role as big sister, and spends long periods of time singing "Immaculate Mary" to a sleeping baby in her somewhat-tuneful voice, or jumping up and down saying, "She wike dat!  She wuvs you and wuvs you!"

We're transitioning to a big girl bed (mattress on the floor) and putting the high chair away for a few months once we move.  She's SO excited about her booster seat, and seems to be ridiculously excited about what a "big dirl" she's becoming.

We had her birthday party with family yesterday, so today we'll celebrate with sausage for dinner (her request for a "special birthday dinner") and leftover pink cake for dessert.

Happy birthday to my beautiful girl!

    1. I'd trade some of their intelligence for fewer temper tantrums... Is that terrible?
