To my sweetest girl,

You turned two and to you that means you can do anything. Especially if Big Brother does it first. You open the door and go in the yard to play. You climb into your seat all by yourself and you even drink from a big girl cup. You’re learning to express your feelings in ways other than screaming. In fact your favorite phrase is “go away!”. Two days ago you learned how to say “Why?” and that you get a response so you say it again. And again. And again. It blows me away the things you can do and how little by little you depend on me less. You refuse my hand to go up and down stairs and you say “Me do!” whenever I try to help you with something .

You are two and you are becoming independent. So that is why my heart stretches and swells when you climb into my lap and rest your head against my chest. You snuggle in and play with the ends of my hair that dangle over your shoulder while you watch Dora. You are still mine, even though you are two.

  1. Boy am I going to miss your blog. The photography but especially the narrative, it blows me away

  2. Big ditto to what George said. Can’t believe your are going to just stop and leave us hanging. Your beautiful stories and photographs have drawn us into your life and we will feel bereft when you are gone.
