Yet another 2 year old!!

Our kids seem to start "acting two" before they really turn two.  Sometimes as early as 18 months.  We've also had a couple babies whose first days being two were rather memorable.  They came into being TWO with a BLAZE of GLORY!

Unfortunately, Baby L's 2nd birthday last week was memorable in a different way.  She woke up very very early that morning, throwing up.  It was a sad miserable birthday for her, and she wasn't acting better for another 4 days.  She threw up for four days (the last two days only at night), and didn't act herself for 5 days.  It made her visit with her grandparents and Aunts a bit different, and her birthday celebration was very low-key.

But the last few days of their visit, she was back to herself.  And then we saw just how TWO she really is as the words "My toys!", "No, no baby!", "Mine!", "No, no BOY!", and "Bad bad boy!" came out of her mouth.  She did not like having her 9 month old cousin here playing with her toys.  It was funny, and yet not funny, all at the same time.  The morning he left, she grabbed up four toys as soon as he entered the room and said, "My toys!"  Then she put them down and started pushing a tub of toys around the room, staying out of his reach, and watching him carefully.  I guess it's a good thing that was the end of the visit.  Hopefully by the next visit, she'll be better at sharing.

And here is a picture of my little sweetie.  I was given this hat by my secret sister for Valentine's Day.  I only got to try it on before 2 yo L claimed it as her own.  Well, she wasn't 2 at that time, but she is now, and she still likes wearing it around the house, even to bed at times.

Trusting in Him,


  1. What a darling! And hopefully the two stage won't last all year.


  2. What an adorable little girl! My little one is almost 18 months old and I can see it's going to be a long road ahead for us too :-)

  3. Your little one is precious! Loved the photo! :)

    They grow up way too fast! :)
