Gracyn :: Two Years Old

Age: TWO years old!

Stats: 28 pounds and 34 inches of pure perfection

Clothes: Mostly 2T/24 month stuff. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two sizes since they seem the same to me but we gravitate towards 2T nowadays.

Favorite Foods: She continues to eat pretty well. Yogurt (gogurt) is a huge hit and she asks for it pretty much once a day. She also LOVES chips and cookies and if Justin or I am eating a chip or cookie, we have to be stealth about it otherwise she comes running asking for a bite.

Favorite Toys: Um, hello Frozen! I thought we missed the Anna and Elsa craze but nope! We've become obsessed. She asks to watch "no-man!" every morning and will walk around singing "Let it Go" at the top of her lungs. She's also still very in to her babies and taking care of them - feeding, wrapping them up in blankets, taking them for walks in her little stroller.

Words: All the words. She talks so well and we can understand pretty much everything she says. I love having actual conversations with her where we talk about our day or while we're playing. She'll run into the room to tell me what she just saw on the TV or what Leighton is doing. She's shy around strangers at first, but once she warms up she will talk your ear off. She can count to 10 (sometimes 15) and can sing the ABCs fairly well.

She's absolutely the best big sister in all the land and has handled the transition so well. We are so, so proud of her.

I typed up a few questions to ask Gracyn each year on her birthday starting this year. It took a couple of days but she eventually answered most of them. I got a few blank stares when I asked what made her happy and sad so we'll save those and try again next year. I'm excited to see how her answers change from year to year. I also think the way kids pronounce words is the funniest thing so I tried to put her take on the words in parenthesis...

My sweet Gracyn girl, I cannot believe you are TWO! Daddy and I love you more than you know. You are smart and funny and caring and gentle. You are independent and strong-willed and you have been working on your negotiating skills - you ask to do everything "one mo' time" while holding up your index finger. And, yeah, you are incredibly gorgeous. Thank you for making me a mama. You absolutely rock my world and I would be nothing without you.

Happy birthday, baby. I can't wait to celebrate you today. Mama loves you.
