Wow, it's hard to believe that two years have passed since our sweet girl entered this world. We were so surprised when you came to us with strawberry blond hair and the sweetest, quietest cry in the world! A few scary weeks of jaundice and a bili-blanket and many, many heal pricks, followed by the scare that you might have Spina Bifida, you really kept us on our toes! After a few weeks you spent the first year of your life pretty laid back and content, I remember your stubbornness started to show a little when it came to sleeping. After sleeping through the night for a number of months, you decided to start waking up again until you were 10 months old... I can hardly remember those days now.
I was shocked at 11 months when you couldn't walk yet but figured out how to climb on top of the kitchen table! That was only the beginning... you figured things out on your own so early, I guess you really wanted to keep up with Hayden! At 16 months you started getting so mad at me when I tried to buckle your car seat because you wanted to do it on your own, along with wanting to get dressed, change your own diaper, and many other things...Now it is hard to believe you are two! Even though you are determined, headstrong, and stubborn, I wouldn't want you any other way (you remind me of myself at times). Daddy and I are so smitten with your sweet kisses and hugs and the way you say I love you, we are amazed at the new things you do everyday! At two, you can already count to 10 and even higher, you can mostly say your ABC's, you know all your colors and animals, and you love to sing, especially "I am a Child of God." You are getting so good at coloring and I love watching you try to ride bikes with all of the big kids, pretty soon you really will be a big kid with the rest of them!
I love you my sweet Bryn, I can't wait to see you take on the roll of big sister in a few more weeks!
