Two years ago, on this day. Sweet little d, you arrived twenty days early at 9:01 p.m. . A 7lb 4oz 21 1/2 inch long bundle of pure sweetness.
Twenty three months ago, you exhausted us with all of your confusion as to why any one would ever sleep...EVER!
Twenty two months ago, you amused us with all of your sweet rantings. You would ramble on and on about everything. And you gave us your first smile :)
Twenty one months ago, you scared us with your first ear infection. Mommy and Daddy spent there first anniversary with you in the E.R.

Sixteen months ago, you once again exhausted us by not sleeping through the night the entire month, waking up multiple times per night. You also started fake sneezing and coughing :)
Fifteen months ago, you didn't need us as a way of transportation. You started crawling and decided that you would get around by your self...ALL of The time!!!

One week ago, It took almost an hour to dress you because you spoke these words very clearly "I don't like that" to every option I presented you with.
