Happy Birthday Munchkin!

Dear Munchkin,

You're turning 2 today. I cannot believe how quickly time is flying by. You seem to be growing up before my very eyes. Please slow down, I'm not ready for it.

You are such an easygoing, happy little girl. It doesn't take much to make you happy and you tell me every day that you're happy. Your eyes light up when you see your sister. The first thing you do in the morning is knock on your door and call "Mommy?" If I don't answer you right away you start calling "Sissy? Sissy?" until your big sister opens your door. You walk out with a big smile on your face and say "Good Morning!". You spend most of your time following your sister and trying to do everything that she does. When we drop her off at school you get upset because you want to be with her.

I'm amazed at the words that you learn every day. Yesterday we went on a hayride to the pumpkin patch and you kept calling the pumpkins "pumpkin balls". Then we saw a cow and you kept calling to the "Moo Cow". You're always telling me "Mommy, I funny!" and that totally cracks us up. You've also recently been saying "You're fired!". I wonder if you've got a little Donald Trump in your future?

You've developed an obsession with Mickey Mouse. Not Minnie, only Mickey will do! You have a Mickey that you take EVERYWHERE with you. He's your potty buddy, your bedtime buddy, your mealtime buddy. It seems that he's replaced Teddy as your one true love.

You still love our pets. Treach is your favorite though. It's a good thing that he's such a patient dog because you love to lay on him while watching television and he always a good morning hug and a goodnight kiss.

Your favorite foods are "pop cicle pops" aka lollipops, "appuhs" aka apples and "baggells" aka bagels. You love milk and apple juice too. You generally love all food and are usually willing to try anything we put in front of you. You'll eat salad, all kinds of veggies and meats. You do have a sweet tooth though, just like Mommy, and frequently ask for "cannie" candy.

You are doing awesome on the potty! I am so proud of you. You stay pretty dry all day and are great at telling me when you have to go.

I'm so excited about all of the new things that we're going to see and do this year! You have such a joy for life and it's contagious. I'm so glad that I was chosen to be your Mommy.

I love you Munchkin! Happy 2nd birthday baby girl!

Happy Birthday to your munchkin. I got teary eyed because I feel the same way about all my kids too....the twins just turned 2 on Sunday. They are my last and it makes me sad to close the baby chapter of my book. I don't know if you are having any more, but do you feel that way too? She sounds like a little sweetie....pumpkin balls!

Thanks for the compliment on my blog :) You asked how I have time to exercise with the kids...I am lucky to get to exercise most mornings for about an hour ALONE because hubby works night (which I don't like) and he takes care of kiddos when I'm locked in my room or out for a walk. They have come to accept this is mommy's exercise time and he gets one on one with them. They usually all eat......their favorite thing to do.......including Daddy. This is the one benefit of him working nights. After I exercise and shower, he goes to bed for the day.
