My little Miss is almost 3. For some reason, I am struggling with this birthday more than any other... I want her to stay 2 for much, much longer!
I am putting off her birthday celebration until next weekend for numerous reasons, but mostly because I am simply NOT READY.
Not ready for the baby talk to end, not ready for the little bits of chub to melt away, not ready for her to stop needing me to hold, cuddle, carry. Although I am really ready for the diaper changes to end, I am hanging onto TWO with a desperate grip.
Feeling sentimental (and a little guilty for putting it off so long), I finally cut her silhouette yesterday, and hung it on my wall next to her brother. At least I will be able to hang onto her charming ways through my photography, writing, and now a little bit of art.
She wants "macawoni cheese" for her dinner, and a "chocate ice keem cake" for her dessert. And pretty panties with "grocies" on them for her present (yes, groceries... think I'll find those easily? I'm thinking perhaps I'll find some with fruit. I hope.)
She's my baby, and she is growing up fast.
