How did my baby grow up so quickly?
When did she get so fast?
It must have happened so slowly I did not see it happening. It must have, because I have been watching this beautiful little girl everyday of her sweet life and somehow I still can't believe that tomorrow she will be having her second birthday. That Sunday she will be officially two. Two! Seriously, how did that happen?
Mommy's Honey Bear. Daddy's Peanut. Wesley's sisder.
You bring such joy to my heart with every snuggle, every smile, laugh, goofy giggle, every day.
You are quite the little character. You play hard and snuggle sweetly. You love to dress up and be told you are pretty. You love your boots and getting dirty playing outside with your big brother. You boss him around in a language that only you understand and surprisingly he sometimes listens. There is no one word to describe you, you are so amazing and a gift from God.
You are stubborn in a totally different way than your brother, and very determined. You are not easily persuaded to do anything you do not want to do. Your sweet kisses and hugs melt me every time!
Everything Wesley does you try to do by yourself. Your independence is really showing up lately and you often will ask not to hold my hand when you jump off the last step. You drink your milk out of a big lidless cup at meal time and try to dress yourself. You are not so independent that you don't enjoy being carried to bed every night or snuggled every morning and for that I am thankful.
If allowed you would wear a skirt, tights and jewelry every day. Anything Pretty is always your favorite. Sometimes you cry when I make you wear jeans or overalls. It's just part of your spunky personality and I would not change it about you ever!
I love how your whole face lights up when I come home and how your eyes sparkle. How your lips are so perfect and your button nose so cute. How your ears stick out just the perfect about and how you pinky fingers are crooked. I love how you ask to be held and how you ask to get right back down. How you love your binki, bear, bunny and brother. How you say and wave good bye to the "kiddy", "roo roo", "ruby", and "cacks" every time we pull out of the driveway. I love how tiny your hand feels in mine. How you make crazy eyes to make me smile. How your belly sticks out and your tongue moves so fast when you says "tickatickaticka". I love you for so many more reasons than you may ever know.
These two years that we have been blessed by you have been amazing. You changed our entire family for the better. Wesley adores you and wants to protect you. Daddy talks about you as if you are his treasure, his sweet Peanut. And I love you more than you'll ever know, more than I can properly say but I'll spend everyday showing you how thankful I am that God gave you to us.
Happy 2nd Birthday Felicity Thea! You are so loved!
