She climbs the splintery, rickety back steps all the way to the way-up-high porch. She stands on her rocking chair, climbs into her doll carriage demanding rides, pulls out her stroller when she wants to go for a walk and bangs on the front door when she wants to swing.
She goes to museums and rides bikes.
She opens and closes doors and drawers (and laptop lids too!) She bakes cookies with dad.
She eats food. Real food. The same food we eat. She really likes chocolate cake.
And Kale. Really.
She talks. A little. Mama (or when she is really sad - Ma awwwwwwwm!) Dadadadadada. Dog! Ca! (We are still working on that "t")
She really knows how to enjoy her birthday.
|Super big, special thanks to the number 1 Birthday Fairy for all the help|
throwing such a great party!
All with a snorting giggle and a smile on her face. She is funny and determined, adventurous and curious, and full of love and face hugs for all the people and animals and balloons in her life. Some days are hard, and long and a little bit sad. Lots of days are messy. Every day I am so, so, so lucky and in love.
