Callie is 2!

My Callie Bug,
You turned a big 2 years old!  We had a fun Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party at your request.  You are a bit obsessed with that show.  Mommy made everyone in the family a shirt with a different character on it.  You were soooo excited about them.

You are still my cuddle bug though.  If you weren't so worried about keeping up with your big sister, I think you might just sit on my lap all day.  You have a strange obsession with sticking your hand in armpits or elbow creases when you cuddle with us.
You are your big sister's sidekick :)
Callie, I swear you are a teenager trapped in the body of a toddler.  You have quite the sassy side and are a bit prone to overdramatics.  And oh boy, can you be chatty when we are at home.

You are also my sweet, shy girl.  You are not fond of strangers and you don't give away your smiles for free.  However, you are braver than your sister when it comes to thinks like amusement park rides and water slides :)
You are my girly girl for sure. You love wearing dresses, jewelry, and bows.  Your favorite color is pink and you love dressing up as a princess.  Sometimes you come up to us and tell us "I so pretty. I so bootiful."  Hopefully, you always remember you are "bootiful".  You love reading and just sitting and playing with the dollhouse or babies.

You are my middle child, always worried about being left out of something and trying to be just like your "sissy" (Fiona).  The week before you became a big sister you decided to potty train yourself.  You just decided it was time to be done wearing a diaper and start using the potty.  You amaze me with how quickly you learn things when you decide it is time.

You love being a big sister, but you have not relinquished your spot on Mommy's lap.  If I am sitting down and nursing your baby sister, you are usually snuggled up on my lap too.
 You take your eating very seriously and you must have hollow legs.  All day long I hear chants of "I hungy".  However, you are still my skinny minnie in the 7th percentile for weight.

You are a blessing to our family and we love your sweet smile!
Mommy and Daddy love you! Happy 2nd birthday, Calina!!
