You are twenty six months old. That's two years and two months in case you don't want to do the math. This month you welcomed a new baby cousin into the world. You have yet to meet her, but you love her already. "She's so small. She no walk, crawl, talk. She has a new binky," you say gleefully when looking at her picture. The binky is important to you, because I have been trying to see if you are ready to get rid of yours. I told you that we would give them all to your new baby cousin, but now you have seen photographic evidence that you do not have to!
This past month, we celebrated Christmas. On Christmas morning, I snuggled in bed with you and whispered, "Santa came! Do you want to go down the hall and open presents?" You looked at me and said, "No, Mama. I want to watch Ni-Hao Kai-Lan." Once we got you down the hall, you realized just how great Christmas actually was. I suspect that next year you will be the one waking us up early. It was great to see you finally understand how to open presents!!! And there were a lot to open, as you had at least four rounds of presents to open that day! You are so lucky to have so many people that love you so very much!
The past couple of days you have discovered a love for playing in the snow. We have read many books about snow, and snowy days, so once you got out there you had big plans about what you wanted to do. You slid down a snowy slide, fell down countless times, and made snow angels until the lawn was full of them. You marveled at our outdoor plants covered in snow. You learned how to throw snowballs and that snow is really......
