The second year has definitely gone faster than the first - whoosh! And here is this awesome little girl who takes great fun in copying all of our mannerisms, tickling & carrying her babies in backpacks turned Ergo's (baby carrier), whose favorite color seems to be red based on how everything is "red" when I ask her "what color?", who picks roses from our backyard to carry around and smell, is sensitive & sweet to people and animals, who eats strawberries like they're a food group, adores Elmo, rocks, shoes, and being chased ("chase you? chase you?!").
Two isn't terrible...in fact, it's funny & sweet & there's always something new. Of course, there are still the tantrums (see below, and note Phylo's stance, indifferent, used to having a little girl throw herself on the floor in front of him).
