If you could be 2 forever




If she was two forever:

She'd still be in love with Austin

I would find pieces of carpet in her nose

A parasite would be living in her stomach from licking the window screen daily

Every day she would ask me if it was her birthday

The last hour of morning sleep would be squirming around in my bed

New vocabulary would pop up in every day language, like "scrumptious"

L's would sound like y's, as in "I yick my yips"

We'd have popsicle tubes in our freezer

Singing "Hakuna Matata" would be one repeated line

Her bangs would always be in her eyes

We'd swing and sing in the hammock every afternoon

Everyone would want to entertain her

She'd take a nap from 4 till 5 pm

Tea time would be a permanent item on the agenda

Everything past would be last night and everything future would be tonight

Going pee in the toilet would be the last priority if anything interesting was happening

The library would be the most exciting place in the world

A marshmallow filled with mango juice would be enough reward for anything

She'd be giving me hugs, kisses, and I love yous hourly

Happy 3rd Birthday Amaya. I wish you could be two forever.

I'm pretty sure there isn't a better way to sing Hakuna Matata than that.

I get to see her in less than 2 weeks. I'm super stoked. If she was 2 forever she would not be able to marry Enzo so I'm glad she's turning 3.

Happy birthday Amaya.

Two is a very good year, but three can be pretty good too.

I'm pretty sure that the I love yous will continue, but you just might have to say good-bye to that 4-5 nap.

Happy birthday to your little, big girl.

So your saying that she magically stopped doing some of the horible things two year olds do on her third birthday? Man. I knew that was supposed to happen on Taj's 3rd. Taj loves that he and Amaya are the same age right now and flew us to Hawaii to see her today- he was a soccor playing pilot. Happy Birthday Amaya!
