2 and a half. Our sweet little Anna is 2.5 years old today.
Height: 33 inches (5th percentile)
Weight: 26 lbs (10th percentile)
What can I say about my petite little sweetheart. She is spunky and inquisitive and has a huge heart all rolled up into a tiny little package. Anna came into this world as a tiny little peanut and has stayed a tiny little peanut ever since. Two most common statements from strangers we encounter while out and about are “My goodness she is beautiful.” and “She is soooo tiny!”. I’m sure one day she’ll be envious of her sisters and their height, but she shouldn’t be. Tiny is the perfect size for her I couldn’t imagine her any other way.
Anna is every bit a 2 year old these days. She has very strong opinions about things and she isn’t afraid to voice them. She may be tiny but her voice is big when she wants it to be. Being a little sister has taught her to stand up for herself and that the world works best when you share. She is sweet that way, and likes to share (most of the time). If someone is sad or upset it concerns her and she has to do something to make them feel better. Her kind-hearted nature has allowed her to grow into her new found roll as big sister very well. She adores Nora and spends much of her day playing with her, talking to her and asking to hold her. They are kindred spirits, you can just see it in their interactions already.
This is such a fun age. It can be incredibly frustrating at times. Parenting a 2 year old take a kind of patience most of us lack. But, it is also so incredibly rewarding. Watching her grow and learn and find her place in the world is so wonderful. Seeing the world through the eyes of a 2 year old, especially such a sweet, intelligent and inquisitive one is like nothing else.
Happy 1/2 Birthday sweet girl!
