You're 2 today Happy Birthday darling girl.

I can’t believe you’re two today. Where has the time gone?! We hope you have a wonderful day. Here is a little note to mark your special day…

When I look back at the day you were born I get all teary and nostalgic. Meeting you is one of my top 3 moments of all time… the other two being, marrying your Father and meeting your Brother.

E with blue glasses on You adore your Brother. You love playing with your dolls. You are very devoted to your dummy and puppy. You love music and often bust a move. Like you Brother and me, you love books.

Your vocab is exploding and everyday you are talking more and more. You love chattering away.

E on big girl bed You moved into a big girl bed at 22 months because you were climbing out of your cot. Since being in a bed, you more often than not, monkey around at bedtime. Last night you were put back to bed at least 10 times over the space of an hour!!

You are night wandering and coming in to visit us. You are staring to spend too much time in our bed. In fact, last night you managed to have your Mother sleeping on the edge of a King bed and your Father on the other edge and he ended up sleeping in your bed for 4 hours for some space. This is something we will work on darling as you need your sleep even more than we do. Having said that, I do love the cuddles… just not the disrupted sleep. xx

E sleeping You’re a terrible bait to your Brother but you love him to death. You copy everything he does. He is the first person you ask for in the morning and when we get to kindy to pick you up you come racing over to us and get so excited to see him. You give him the biggest cuddle and take such pleasure in telling all your friends he is there.

You love watching Toy Story and Frozen. You favourite TV show is Sophia the first.

You love drawing and getting into mischief. In the last couple of weeks you have started role-playing and it’s hilarious and so sweet to watch.

E watching iPad You have done things and gotten into mischief your Brother never even considered.

You’ve wrecked more lipsticks than I care to count, you have spilt a bottle of dark nail polish on the carpet in our bedroom and I’ve also found you in our bathroom covered in powder eye shadow with footprints tracked through our bedroom.

You love cuddles and being close to us. When in bed you touch my face and touch our noses together. You love snuggling in.

You are independent and have been eating finger food since you were 9 months. You refuse to be fed and you eat more than your Brother most days.

E with dolly Your tantums are quite epic. They are the full on throw yourself down, kick your arms and legs and scream at the top of your lungs ones. You are persistent and you don’t give up easily. This is hard work now but they are traits I hope you always display.

You are our baby but it feels like you were hardly a baby. The time has gone so quickly with you.

You frustrate me and you challenge me but I wouldn’t have you any other way.

We love you darling girl. Being your Mumma is a pleasure and I can’t wait for all the love, excitement and challenges ahead. I hope you know how loved you are.

Happy Birthday E.

Love Mummy xo

      I look forward to getting the two of them together at some stage… although I predict mischief when they do. 😉
