Assertions of “I do it myself!” accompany every task
The perfection of the pout came overnight
Wicked tantrums followed by wild laughter. Repeat all day.
An endless supply of new words.
Singing songs all the time.
Generous hugs and kisses, especially kisses.
The parrotting of our words and phrases is constant.
The immediate response of “I here” when you call her name (just like playing Marco-Polo as a kid)
So far while M at 2 has been tiring, it is more fun then I could have ever imagined… and continues to get better everyday. This kid is smart, funny, ornery and so damn lovable.
