My Baby

Today is Patrice’s 2nd birthday. 

This is the first time I haven’t either already had a small baby or one on the way when a child reaches this milestone.  My baby days are over.  That thought is a little hard to fathom, so we won’t ruminate for long.

We’ll talk about my little girl. My sweet, happy little girl.

Patrice, a few days old

Now she is such a big girl. We are working on her learning words. We’re pretty sure, last night, she said her first sentence, “me too daddy.”

She can almost climb into her crib. She is trying to learn out to use the potty. She gets that you are supposed to sit on the potty, but keeps making it there after she goes.

She gives the best hugs and kisses. She used to be stingy with them, but now she loves to give them. It melts a mama’s heart.

She takes herself to her room when she is mad (super cute). She gets mad (not quite so cute).

We love our Patrice and today we will celebrate her! There will be Elmo cake and ice cream. There will be celebration!
