Yesterday Cilla turned 26 months. Time goes by so fast! She does not sit still. EVER. And having her picture made has to be done on her terms, as you can see by these pictures. But, she never ceases to amaze me. She is so witty. She is so smart (I know every momma thinks that!) And she has such a kind heart that really does outshine her two year old moments!
I know some of you think I am crazy. But, I love this age. I love her sweet sweet little voice. I love that she says something completely out of the blue every day. I love that for a few split seconds every day, she will sit still and let me hold her. You better believe I soak it all in!
Some of my favorite things that she does and says...
She grabs our cheeks, puts her nose on our noses and tells us exactly what she wants.
She calls herself the "stinky kid" when she has a dirty diaper or has not had a bath!
She calls herself a "wagonmuffin" rather than a ragermuffin. I know it sounds like we do a lot of name calling at our house!
She loves to read and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Sometimes at the same time.
She can read, or recite you choose, the entire book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?"
She can count to fourteen.
She can say about half of her ABC's. Although, I can't guarantee what order they will be in!
She says, "Fwint Harris like this" when she sees something that her daddy likes.
She says, "Noah I favorite!" As in Noah's ark. It is the story with all of the animals!
She says prayers for all of her friends every night. And I mean ALL of her friends! You might even get prayed for two or three times!
I could go on and on.
Cilla Harris, You are such a joy. You are a very determined little girl, but you also have such a sweet tender little spirit. I love watching you grow and learn. I love watching you blossom into the little girl who God wants you to be.
I love you. I love you. I love you!
