BiP just celebrated her 2nd birthday.
I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since she arrived and changed our lives forever.
To celebrate I’ve decided to write her a letter, daddy did it last year!
In a few years she’ll be able to read it for herself.
To my darling BiP!
Happy 2nd birthday darling!
I had no idea you’d change my life so much. You are my shining light. You are truly my proudest achievement!
You are a little girl now. No longer a baby.
And what a character you have! You are really cheeky monkey. You are fearless and agile, you clearly get that from your Daddy.
You speak more now, mostly in French which means I have to get up to speed with my own French. You understand both English and French perfectly which is astounding how you are bilingual already!
Your smile is infectious – your chipped front tooth horrified me at first, but now it suits you. In a few years it will fall out and I hope you take better care of your new tooth 🙂
You still have barely any hair – it looks like it will be really curly. I blame myself because I saw a 2 year old with the same amount of hair when I was pregnant with you and commented that it was a bit odd. LOL!
Over the last few months you decided you no longer wanted to wear diapers – I guess all the Elimination Communication paid off as you made the decision to only wear “pantpies”.
You are a serious foodie like your parents – perhaps it’s thanks to Baby-Led Weaning. The more spiced up the better for you even if you demand “burger’ and ‘baby-pasta” all the time.
To the horror of a few you are still breastfeeding. You decided on your 2nd birthday that you prefered a book over a cuddle and feed with Mummy. That’s ok, you are growing up. I am delighted that a year on that we can still say that we will wean when WE want to. Although I think you will probably decide before I’m ready. When that day comes I am ready.
Happy 2nd Birthday BiP!
We love you more than words can ever describe.
