happy birthday dilly!

Dear Dilly,

Two years ago today, you entered this world and filled our hearts with joy. From the day we met, you have had a smile on your face. See? Here's the proof.And that smile is contagious. No one can resists its powers. Not even Doodle. Even when she is in full on tantrum mode. You, however, are not as temperamental as your sisters (at least not yet). As an infant, people always asked me if you ever cried. You never did. And as a toddler, everyone wants to know if you are always so easy-going. You are. And you are funny. And lovable. And immensely cute.

Your father and I love you for so many reasons. Here are just a few of our favorite things about you at age two.
  • Rather than throw your food on the floor, you say, "Mommy. Don't want this." And when I take it and replace it with something you want, you tell us, "Dilly love it."
  • You are the only two year old that I have ever met who knows the words to songs by Ke$ha, 3OH!3, Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas and Taio Cruz.
  • You love to sleep. And you love to nap. In fact, most days you tell me when it's nap time.
  • You are an amazing eater. You will try anything and your favorites are vegetables and Greek yogurt. I swear, the better it is for you, the more you want it.
  • No matter how hard we try, we can't stop your hair from looking like Justin Bieber's. And to us, you'll always be "Bieber Baby."
  • You look exactly like Boo from Monsters Inc. Seriously. See?
  • When you say, "Bye, Mom" or "Bye, Dad" and we ask you where you are going, you always say, "On trip." When asked to where, you always reply, "China."
Dilly, you are every parent's dream. So, thanks for making other parents jealous of me and your father. You make us look good.

Happy Birthday Baby!

Love,
Mommy

Happy birthday, Dilly!!! It's a 3rd girl trait. I have 3 girls also and my third daughter is the most easy going, funny kid I've ever met and she always has been. Now the boy that came after her is another story. ;-P

Julie said...

That's too funny about the China thing. When my daughter was her age she had a great imagination about China and she was always talking about her adventures there.
It was very strange. I don't even know where she learned about China.

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Maybe she was a famous world traveler in a past life and China was her main hub.

Love this!! What a blessing to have such a chill baby..and yes she does resemble Monster inc..
