Look how far we've come
well... it's thanksgiving and i haven't written a sappy post in a long time.
i feel like i'm doing an injustice to lottie, so, here we go...
i don't even know where to start, you're so big, so beautiful, SO you. you like bread and love go-gurts. you LOVE LOVE LOVE popcorn. you ask me for "bread" in the morning. oh, back to popcorn, it's crazy what you will do for popcorn, (like put your coat on or shoes.)
you now know that the doctor means pretzels and stickers, and it may also mean a shot, BUT there's a "tish tank" (fishtank.) and you love marine life.
you are cranky in the mornings and when i don't do what you want you want "dada." you are 2.5 years old and are finally removing yourself of the dreaded "binky." when i'd go to daycare and pick you up after work, it used to terrify me if i didn't have your favorite binky in your backpack, but daddy has been breaking you of it at night and right now? you don't need it PERIOD. i never thought i'd see the day.
you are a fashionista who wants to wear a dress if mama is wearing a dress you want to wear one too...you still aren't sure how to "play gently" but you love, and you love hard. you want the best for everybody, you crumble when you know you've hurt somebody.
my diaper bag has left the building and you are taking your hello kitty backpack to daycare. you refer to daycare as "school." and i think you might have a boyfriend or two. it's SERIOUS. victor has been gone for a month and you still ask about him. you're SO smart.
lottie. you frustrate me. you amaze me. you scare me. but i love you. i love you SO much. i may not always show it, i may be very lax in how i parent, but i always want you to be YOU. but know right from wrong.
i love you so much, and am thankful for you everyday of my life.
