That’s what she’ll say if you ask her how old she is. Or she might just stare at you. Or hide her face. Or giggle uncontrollably. In fact, she might do just about anything, because she is, of course, two.
Her favorite things:
4) Her special baby. And babies in general.
5) Beads. And coloring.
6) Jumping on the “jumpoline” and beds . . . and couches . . . and the floor . . . and her baby brother . . . .
(Side story: Today I laid Isaiah down and then turned my back for a moment as I went about my work. Moments later, I heard Sierra’s giggles and smiled to myself over her contagious happiness. Then I heard the words, “Jump on Isaiah!!” Did I just hear . . . I turned back to see Sierra holding on to a piece of furniture, jumping with both feet on her brother’s belly. I snatched her off as quickly as I could, then turned back to see if Isaiah was okay. A huge smile and giggle met me as I came into his line of vision. Yup. So much fat comes in handy sometimes. Tough little guy!)
7) Going outside
8 ) Boats and trains. We went to a museum recently with friends and she LOVED seeing trains and boats in real life!
9) Dancing. And running around in circles. Especially if she’s playing dress-up!
Oh, there are many more “favorite things” . . . such as dear relatives and friends, baths, Daddy’s guitar playing, storytime, snacks — you know, the simple things of life. Every day with her is an adventure. Every day is a day in which we all learn something new.
Every day is a gift.
