Two Years

Dear Emma,

I can hardly believe that you are two years old now. You are a full-fledged two year old now. You have recently discovered your independence. You love to do things by yourself and always say "Emma do it" or "my do it". This includes climbing into the car by yourself, opening any food wrapper by yourself, and reading by yourself.

Recently, the "paci fairy" came to visit you. You got to put your pacis in a special box and the next morning, the paci fairy left you a special present in trade for your pacis, a train set. You have done quite well going to sleep without your paci. You now talk and sing yourself to sleep.

You love to sing. Your favorite songs include Row, Row, Row Your Boat, 5 Little Monkeys (Swinging in the Tree), 5 Little Monkeys (Jumping on the Bed), and If You're Happy and You Know It. You sing all the time now, and it is so cute!

Another thing you love to do now is count. You can count from 1-12. Once you hit 12, you always say "mango" (instead of 13). Your father and I have no clue where you got this from, and it cracks us up every time you say it. A few days ago, you were counting even higher, and this is how it went, "fiveteen, eleventeen, mangoteen". Hilarious!

You are quite the climber, though you always have been. You will climb onto or into anything you can. You love to go to Chick-fil-a and climb in the playground and slide down the slide. We actually go to Chick-fil-a so often that you think chicken comes from cows, seriously!

Your favorite toys are your Fisher Price dollhouse, your train set, puzzles, blocks, and books. You love to read. You would read 50 books every night before bed, if we would let you. You don't like to sit on the potty unless you have a book to read. So glad you love to read!

You are such a great big sister. You love Eli very much and are very concerned when he is crying. We are working on you not being so rough, and giving gentle touches. You like to hold Eli in your lap and like to give him his paci. Your father and I can't wait to see how your relationship with your brother continues to grow.

Your father and I are so proud to be your parents. We are constantly amazed at how smart you are and the cute things you say and do. You always bring a smile to our face. We love you and look forward to the many memories we have to come!
