Thoughts on having a 2 year old!

I've been putting off doing this post because then I would really have to admit that we have a 2 year old! Don't get me wrong, this stage is SO much fun, but I've had many mixed emotions lately.  Sadness that she isn't a baby anymore.  Concern that we weren't raising her the right way! The biggest one is an IMMENSE amount of gratitude and happiness that we were blessed with becoming her parents two years ago-- a blessing, for a long time, we weren't sure we would have.  She brings us so much joy! As with many, if not all, 2 years olds, the level of intensity of her tantrums has exponentially increased since her actual birthday, yet we still think she is the most wonderful little girl in the world.  

But don't get me wrong, she's still little!

 I've waited so long for her to love this dress! :) Princess Eliza.

Fun in Daddy's sweatshirt.

 I'm so grateful that she love books!
Saying "cheese."

Eliza is so much fun! Her speech has really picked up and we are shocked everyday by the things she says.  She knows her colors, some of her shapes and numbers, and we're working on letters! She is getting very independent and insists on putting on her pants, shoes, socks, you name it.  She also likes to pick out her outfits...  She loves Elmo, Sofia the First, Dora, her puzzles, books, animals, "cleaning" with mommy, playing doctor, running, dancing, trains, throwing balls (she has a pretty good arm!), bubbles...
We sure do love this girl.


  1. She is so cute! Happy Birthday Eliza!

  2. Oooohhhh, she is so adorable! You're right--it's such mixed emotions when they get bigger, but what a fun (and hard) age :)
