You are 2

You are 2 1When you stirred this morning by my side, I quietly sang "Happy Birthday" in your ear.

I thought about you -

  • You are beautiful - with rosy cheeks, baby blue eyes, & sweet little lips.
  • Your name means "peace" and you almost always exemplify that quality.
  • You love your big sister something fierce.
  • You say lots of words (dog, please, pink, mama, daddy, yes, no, cheese, me, baby - especially "baby").
  • You love babies - both real and pretend.
  • Your favorite books are "All the World" and "Only You."
  • Your favorite movie is - surprise! - "Babies."
  • Your favorite place is in my arms.
  • You're not a big eater and you are teeny tiny, but you do love butter, milk, and cheese (which is ironic).
  • When there is conflict, you tend to hide (like me).
  • You still nurse at night...but
  • you insist that you are not a baby.

For the record, I don't believe in the TERROR-able twos. BUT, you did have a rough day today. I'm hoping it was just a case of the birthday grumpies (sometimes you and your sister get that).

You are 2 2 You are 2 3 You are 2 4

In the afternoon, we sang to you and you grinned from ear-to-ear as we served up plates of homemade New York Cheesecake, topped with cherries.

At dinner, I made salad and you chose blue cheese dressing. Your sister prayed before our meal, "Lord, may you be my leader. I love you...and my entire family does too."

I hope you pray that same prayer someday. I think I'm going to pray it tonight too.

  1. She is so beautiful, Stephanie. You are truly blessed.

    I don't think the twos are terrible but there are definitely some challenges to be had. More than anything I think 2yos are just so dang funny! Don't you?

    PS...Do you have a link to your cheese cake recipe? I love to try it!

  2. Happy Happy Birthday (a few days late) to your littlest...and to YOU. You did the hard work bringing her into this Happy Birthday to you! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Happy Birthday! I love the book All the World, maybe more than my daughter's do! I am finding three to be more difficult than 2.

  4. Happy belated birthday to a super sweetie. She is so lovely. It sounds like your family enjoyed a wonderful peaceful celebration of her wonderful peaceful person. Hug to her and the babies.
    What a beautiful prayer.
    P.S. We have a totally baby crazy #2 too. (Too bad she carries them around by their heads- it is kind of weird;)

  5. She is most adorable. I love the photos you snag of your kids! Happy happy birthday to your little 2 year old lady! :)
    Please tell me you'll post the recipe to your cheesecake - maybe a note on Facebook!? LOL :) YUM!!

  6. Sigh. Stephanie... I want so desperately to NOT buy into the terrible twos, but ever since 2 hit, life has been quite a bit more difficult. Glad you don't experience that, tho!!!

    Happy Birthday, Little One!

  7. By the way her side view looks like yours. She is super cute :) Happy birthday angel. She is incredibly blessed with a wonderful sister. Now, you are gonna make wanna get prego again :)

  8. Happy Birthday Sweetie! I think I know what her name is, and it's one of my favorites. :)

    The two's are so wonderful (I say that like I'm the expert because I have a two-year-old ;) ) I swear they learn something new every day and their language grows by leaps and bounds.

  9. I love two - it's such a fun age, so much discovery! Of course I'm loving 3 not quite 4 and 1 not quite two also... so maybe I just love each stage, each age and what that brings.

    I love big sister's prayer - my Sugar has been praying "be strong in the Lord" (been learning about the armor of God in Sunday School) and "let us have a good day" and "let our church have a good day too" it's so precious to me and helps me remember what loving God really is all about.

  10. Happy birthday, little one!

    I'm totally going to show Darah part of Babies this afternoon (we do netflix, and it is available for instant viewing). She is going to flip over it!

  11. Awwww Happy Birthday! I now have a guess as to her name and if I'm right it's such a beautiful name! ;)
    Cory had his first really bad tantrum on his second birthday, but he did not turn out to have terrible twos at all!
