Can we talk for a moment about how great age 2 is?
I'm massively in love with 2.
2 is starting to put words together in strings that offer amazing insights into a developing personality.
2 sings the Alphabet song, with a particular zest reserved for the letter "W".
2 changes stuffed animal diapers, tucks them into bed and kisses them goodnight.
2 is a big fan of her gummy multivitamin. 2 is unimpressed that she only gets one a day. 2 would like to negotiate with you for another one.
2 would like to tell you about her friends and call them on the phone.
2 constantly surprises you: asking "please" to go to bed at 8pm; having a babysitter for the first time with no issues; going to bed for the babysitter; sleeping 6 hours at a stretch; asking for more food at dinner and eating it; etc.
2 no longer walks. She runs and jumps and climbs and dances.
2 enjoys a good morning cuddle. The kind of slow sleepy puppy-snuggle wake-up that reminds you of why you wanted kids in the first place.
