Baby girl! I just can't get enough of this sweet face these days. Your second birthday was just last week. Yep, it happened. I blinked and now you are 2.
And you are every bit a 2 year old. Sweet, silly, BUSY, and always wondering what will happen when I do _______. So so curious and learning so much. I love the way you whisper "that's awesome" or the way you shout "I yike it ayot". You give such great hugs and kisses, it is a wonder I get anything else done all day.
You love Elmo. More like LOVE him. He catches your eye everywhere we go. You can spot him from a mile away and will scream "Elmo! ELMO! ELMO!!!!!!" until we go and see him. I think your favorite thing about your birthday was your Elmo balloon. I couldn't get you to look at the camera no matter how many silly sounds or dances moves I made.
You are finding your voice and saying so much. I love that you can tell us a little more about what you are thinking and feeling. You are lost without your brother and sister. The 3 of you will play and giggle and fill the house with joy joy joy!
Bath and bedtime are some of my favorite times of the day with you. We sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Jesus Loves Me" a least 10 times. Sometimes 20. You know every word of both, by the way. We rock in your chair and read book after book. We talk about the day. We giggle and then we pray. Your sweet "amen" melts my heart. And I pray that you will know just how much Jesus loves you and He will be who you live for each and everyday.
Happy birthday, Hannah Beth. I love you so very much.
