Lucie at two, I love that you:
Say no to my kisses almost all day, which makes it all the sweeter when you finally say yes.
Carry around tiny books and sit and look through them all by yourself.
Have a new fondness for dolls and stuffed animals which you carry tucked under your arm.
Cry and run to Elliot when he is crying.
Wrinkle up your nose and kiss me over the edge of the bathtub.
Think that you are one of the big kids.
Make me leave a little earlier so that you can walk to the car yourself. "ME!"
Eat your peas and chicken, then eat some of your brother's.
Dance and giggle when I've deciphered which snack your asking for (that is, when you're not helping yourself to the bunny grahams).
Point and practice your words just to hear yourself say them-- "wuh-wuh" (dog) and "mow" (cat) being two of your favorites.
Sing to yourself in the back seat of the car, sometimes for the entire trip.
Make all of us a little softer, lighter and the world a little sweeter.
PS- I hope you like my new look. Poke around a bit. The links have been moved to another page, but can be accessed from the sidebar.
