Josie is 2!

And what a fun birthday we had! There were meals all selected by the birthday girl– oatmeal for breakfast, mac & cheese for lunch, yogurt for a snack, hot dogs and broccoli for dinner, and raspberry cupcakes for dessert. There was painting outside (even though it was SO hot), book reading, and lots of singing. You asked, “Sing Happy Birthday Me!” all day. You got the “soft Buddha” you’ve been asking for for weeks and you love him. You carried him around and said, “I love my Buddha,” “This nice Buddha.” You asked if your birthday was outside and in the living room. You were glad that it was your birthday everywhere.

We also had a good amount of classic two-year-old screaming, but it was overshadowed by all the fun and seeing you love being the birthday girl. You are a lesson in contradictions! Somehow you have a big temper and are still the sweetest toddler! You go back and forth between thinking your brother is the coolest person in the world– repeating everything he says, and being totally annoyed by him. One minute you are so clingy and the next you’re super independent and daring. There’s no “story” that can sum you up and I hope you always stay that way– don’t get pegged into one version of yourself. You containĀ so much and it’s all wonderful because it’s you. You are so incredibly smart and funny. I love you so, so, so, so much, Josie Rocket. Happy birthday, my two year old!
