Two Years Old

There's something I love about two year olds. Yes, the newborn stage is adorable and cuddly, and when they start to crawl and walk and say words, it is new and exciting. I do have to say, though, that the one year old stage when they start to walk and get into everything, but aren't capable of listening at all, isn't my favourite. Then they hit two, and I really don't think there is anything terrible about it! They start talking and expressing their own thoughts, and you can really see their personality emerging. They have lots of questions, but a simple answer satisfies them. I'm definitely biased, but I can't get over how unbelievably precious my current two year old is. Her sister was a cute two year old too, but no offense to her ( don't freak out - of course I love her to pieces) I just don't remember being so over the moon in love with her two year old self. Felicity has the most adorable little voice and way of saying things that just makes it impossible to ever be mad at her for more than a few seconds. She is very silly and loves to tell jokes that are just hilarious to the two of them. Usually they are something along the lines of "You should eat my NOSE, Maria!" followed by peals of laughter. And if you could hear her laugh you would at least have to smile too. The one thing that I just can't get over is how loving and sweet she is, especially to her mommy. This is, (big surprise!) my favourite feature of all.  At least half a dozen times a day we have the following conversation. "Mommy?" "Yes dear?" "I love you!" This is accompanied by a loving pat on the back, stroking of my cheek, or a hug and a kiss. If I am not feeling well, which these days is quite frequent, she says to me "It's ok Mommy, I am here for you. I will give you a hug then. Do you feel well now?" Today she came up to me and said, "Thanks, Mommy!" "For what dear?" I replied. "For loving me!" she said with a shy smile. Yes, my heart melted. 

I do have reiterate again how much I also love and adore my Maria. She has some pretty kick ass qualities herself, but I shall save those for another post, another day.........
