My bestest goodest girl

Time is kicking my ass. My baby girl is nearly 2 1/2. She can talk and run and jump and sing. She knows nearly every letter in the alphabet. She can count to 10. She knows all of her colors. She picks out her own clothes. She doesn't like to sit on my lap when I read books. She has her own opinions and ideas about our world.

But it's not just the things she knows that impresses me. Her body is long and lanky. Her skin isn't baby soft anymore. Her feet smell stinky after a hard day of playing. Her hair is becoming long and unmanageable. She is turning into a big kid.

Although we have days where she is cranky and mean and bossy, the good days far outnumber the bad. She is such a wonderful little girl. I am so lucky to have her in my life.


And don't even get me started on my little boy who can WALK across the room before falling down. I am getting all weepy over here. Sniff sniff.

I cannot believe she is so big already. And as for the Izzy man, I remember when you were pregnant. Wow Miss Porgie is really a big little girl. xo

iMommy said...

Oh my goodness, is she really that old already! What a beauty... she'll be sixteen and wearing a chastity belt before you know it.

Melissa said...

Be sure to savor it because it goes by so fast. She is quite adorable, if a bit stinky. :)

Mama Kalila said...

Awww... Kalila's feet are already turning stinky lol. Babyhood goes away way too fast... Isn't Izzy about to turn one?

chris said...

It's amazing to watch how fast they grow! And I'm so glad Jack doesn't chew on his crib like Izzy! :)

Eva said...

Aw, big girl.

The unmanageable hair thing has been an unpleasant development at our house.

The White Family said...

The messy haired, stinky feet ones are always the cutest!! I have one myself. :o)

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Oh that's so sweet. I know what you mean. This whole summer we exclaimed over how stinky the kids feet were in their sandals. And my three year old now has bad breath in the morning. It's subtle - but seriously! Bad breath?!?

Nellie said...

She is just so pretty! Everything you describe her as sounds exactly like Ellie!

Cristina Mathers said...

it all happens way too fast if you ask me. i love seeing the things tht the kids can do as they learn, but it's scary to think that one day they will be teenagers! or even 5. i will have a 5 year old in 2 years! ahhhh!

she's pretty as can be.

Jiff said...

Heather @ boy, girl, and a pug said...

My mom ws sitting beside me the other day when I read this post and when she saw the picture of Porgie she said, "Oh that is one pretty little girl." I couldn't agree more!

Happy Birthday Izzy Wizzy Woo! I have a little something for him if you want to email me your address.
