To My Daughter on Her 2nd Birthday

to my daughter on her 2nd birthday

My dear Autumn,

You turned two today! Which feels almost impossible because I’m pretty sure you were just born.  These last two years went by so fast, but especially this last year.  You’re growing up, and it’s much too fast.

This past year, you started walking, you started talking more and more, and your little personality is shining through even more.  It’s so much fun when you let us know exactly what you want, exactly the way you want it.  This year, you got your big girl bed, you got to go to Touch-A-Truck, you made so many new friends!

This past year, you gained a little brother.  He is one of your favourite people, and you love to bring him toys (and take them away), wipe his mouth, and kiss his cheek or hands.  He is totally captivated by you as well.  It’s amazing to see how much you two love each other.

You want to do and see everything, you just love to explore your world.  Whether we’re at the park, the library, or in our own back yard.. all you want to do is check everything out and see how things work.  You especially love walking around and around in our house.

You have so many favourite things right now.  You’re obsessed with anything that has to do with bunnies, or boats.  You love Disney, especially Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Beauty & The Beast, Zootopia and Frozen.  You love to sing “Let It Go” and “Beauty and the Beast” in your sweet little voice.  You love to take care of your baby doll, and you enjoy feeding her just like mama.  You still love books, and you love colouring at your little table in my studio.

I love you so much, and I’m so excited to see how you change and grow over the next year <3

xoxo,
Mama
