The Wonderful Twos

Tonight as I was rocking Millie before she went to sleep, I told her a story about a mommy who was given a beautiful baby girl as a treasure, two years ago tomorrow. I told her a few of the countless reasons that I love that little girl, and then I started crying. Then I put her in bed and she started crying. Heredity shows up at the weirdest moments.

I sure am lucky to have been given two of the most wonderful girls. Here are a few reasons to love Millie, especially on her second birthday!

*She is quick-witted and funny
*She's constantly learning new words and skills
*Still hasn't mastered jumping, but works on it daily
*She loves her little sister and is very attentive to her needs--including sharing her food with the baby
*Loves dancing and is gaining some mad skills
*Has the best smile
*Has picked up singing
*She's learning how effective a kind tone and a few choice words ("please, mommy") can be
*LOVES sweets (and heredity makes another appearance)
*She loves being rocked
*Often gets laughing hard enough that her legs give out and she ends up on the floor
*Has the cutest dimple
*She almost always looks like a little homeless child with the cutest ragamuffin hair you've ever seen
*She loves helping with most anything, but her favorites are cooking and sweeping
*Loves to pray, read about Jesus or sing songs about him

Oh, how I love this girl.

Happy Birthday, Millie!
