That girl

I think there's a part of me that thought the novelty would wear off. I think I thought that by this time it would be old news and I'd be more frustrated with her on a regular basis. I think there's a part of me that thought by now I wouldn't light up when I saw her.

It's just not true.

It's only getting better. As much as I've hated the phrase when it's used negatively I look at parents of newborns and think "Just you wait!"

Just you wait until she giggles when you play some peeking game.

Just you wait until you chase her/him, catch her/him and she/he shouts "'Gain!"

Just you wait until she stands up in her crib and very patiently calls out "Mom!".

Just you wait until you go for a walk and he/she points to things saying "Whastha?".

Just you wait until she teases you.

No, on the other hand, don't be too impatient - the baby stage is wonderful too.

But this I know: THIS age is a delight. I want to keep her at this age. I want to record every minute of it so that one day I can look back at it with tears in my eyes.

Me too! So far, the sweetness of the so-called "terrible" twos is making far more of an impression than the tantrums.

That phrase "Every stage was my favourite so far" starts to make alot more sense ...

Pssst. You won't have that many tears in your eyes because it continues to get better for a long-long time. : ) Girls get even better when they're three. Yes, they do.

I was going to say what Raehan said - you've got lots of fun years ahead of you too.

Yeah! Just you wait. You will love her to bits at the next stage, and the next and the next...
