Let's just not talk about the last week. mmkay?
We've been busy being 2 years old around here. Little lady talks nonstop. nonstop. It's lively and entertaining. In fact, she's currently talking and singing through her nap time. I thought that we were done with teething as I can now see all 4 of her two year old molars. But, it seems I pulled the plug on the teething remedies a little early.
Speaking of singing....favorite songs include Yankee Doodle, mommy's made up song about putting a frog on your eye, a little ditty that includes the phrase Isla June Jenks and the phonics song on the LeapFrog DVDS. Then, she'll suddenly break out in a new song that puts all of those together. She's just a singin'
Some of her new phrases:
My have it!
Your Turn! (which really means MY turn)
Mommy, hold you.
All dressed up for a little friend's birthday party.

We really are having so much fun together. It's still tough and full of trying moments. But, it is oh so fun. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to be here for all the little moments throughout the day.
Just before nap today I realized that having a little girl means I get to brush her hair. I don't know why I never thought of this before, but I just sat there and started thinking about all the times I'm going to get to sit with her and brush her hair. Hopefully, she'll repay that favor.
