My crazy baby, right now you...
love to pretend you're a monster and growl
hold your finger to your lips and say "umm" when you're thinking
dance when you hear any music, but adore freeze dance and the elmo slide
sing almost any song, but you love the alphabet song the most
hate to wear anything fitted and already insist on choosing your own clothes
demand to be changed out of your pj's the minute I lift you out of your crib
always sing along to music in the car and only like Feist's The Reminder
give endless hugs and kisses--but only to mama and dada
almost always have to be sitting or cuddling with mama while watching tv
are absolutely in love with dogs
are so fearless it's frightening
adeptly climb anything you can
close your eyes and walk backwards toward people you feel shy around
think you're six and much prefer playing with older boys or girls
will only wear red sneakers
ask for a popsicle every morning around nine without fail
close doors, push chairs into tables and always put trash into the bin
are in love with your dad in a way that makes my heart contract
carry your "purse" (it's really a lunch bag) everywhere you go
hate when I leave and light up like christmas when I walk through the door
beamed with joy when a room filled with people sang happy birthday to you
know all of your colors and can identify most letters of the alphabet
your favorite book is I Love You Stinky Face
said "beh ew, mama" when I sneezed while driving yesterday
hug anyone who is hurt or crying and say "sad"
I think you're a superhero.

I can't get enough of you, my wonderful child. I love you with every cell in my body. You're more than I ever dreamed.
