Two


Just like that, she turned two. She wore a tutu. She ran around with her friends and squealed when we sang happy birthday. She liked the balloons (which she called baboons). And just like little gorilla (thank you so much, Adele), "everybody came and everybody sang. And everybody still loved him (in this case, her)."

There are many trite statements I feel compelled to make. Time. Speed. Growth. Astonishing. You know them all. Let me just wipe a tear and gather myself together. My baby is….not a baby.

  4. Oh but she is lovely. Two. How is it possible for time to pass this quickly? I think I ask myself this question on a daily basis. "Then one day something happened. Little gorilla began to grow and grow and grow."

    Makes me want to slow down time. (Hugs to you, Augusta. I'm still out here.)

  13. She will always be your baby. I know how hard it is to watch the time pass and not be able to slow it down. She's beautiful. She has such thick, long hair. Happy birthday, beautiful girl. I am sending you a hug from far away because I could have used a hug when my baby turned 2 a few short weeks ago. Always thinking of you.

  14. Sniffle. I can just hear her sweet little voice saying "baboon". I'm so glad she got to be surrounded by love, as she surely always will be, 'cause she just drags it out of anyone who knows her, even sour old grumps like me. Happy birthday, amazing child.

  15. I did so think of this angel and her mama. This last month has been very much the subject of teetering on disaster. Love this glimpse. More in email soon.
