Okay, that was a serious blog hiatus that I didn't mean to take, heavens I didn't even post about Christmas! But I'm back!
Today Kate turns 2! I can't even believe it. I am so in denial. But this stage, so far, for her has been pretty fun. She is non-stop talker now and man, does this girl have opinions!! I have never met a child her age with so many opinions. I like seeing her fiery spirit though, when its not making me insane. ;)
She is running around this morning with her birthday balloons saying "Birfday, Kate!" and "2, 3!" and singing "Birfday to you" and "Once there was a snowman". Haha, apparently she want to mix it up and not just sing "Happy Birthday" all day.
I love her so much. She was born to be my trial I think, but she has also taught me more about myself and life than I thought a small child could do. My life would not have been complete without her. I wish she didn't have to grow up because I just love her the way she is right now, but I look forward to seeing the kid she becomes.
My favorite things she says at the moment:
Kate, name. (She is obsessed with her name, and everyone else's at the moment)
no way! (okay, I don't usually love this, but its cute when its not infuriating)
self! (as in, I did it myself!)
Bacon (That is her way of saying "Backyardigans" which is her obsession at the moment)
Dad (She recently switched from saying Daddy)
I also love it when she counts and tries to identify letters. She is not good at either one, but she loves to be like her siblings and is getting better at it. 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 11! So cute. Happy Birthday Katiebug!
I promise I will post more about our festivities later.
