Happy 2nd Birthday!

Happy Birthday Marisa! You have been nothing short of a miracle and blessing to us since the day we found out we were expecting you! You are our world, our everything. Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we look forward to many more years of laughter and pure joy! We love you big girl! MUAH!

My best lil' kitchen helper!

A few facts about Marisa at age 2:

-Marisa knows all the letters of the alphabet (she gets very few mixed up). And everytime we go out somewhere and she sees a sign she has to stop and name every letter she sees on it.

-She also knows her numbers to 20, knows all her colors, and knows all her shapes.

-Marisa LOVES to read. She can even "read" many of her books back to me. I love hearing her read word for word exactly what is written in the book because she has heard me say it so many times.

-Marisa's favorite thing to ask right now is, "What (fill in the blank) say?" And the fill in the blank is just about anything. A few of our favorites are bananas, bricks, sun, and any letter of the alphabet. And I always have to have an answer for her. She won't stop asking until I say something. Me saying, "I don't know" or "It doesn't say anything" isn't good enough.

-Everytime Daddy comes home from work her energy level rises to the extreme. She automatically becomes a non-stop chatterbox and an energizer bunny all gone hay-wired. No exaggeration.

-Marisa still LOVES her Georgie. She has had him since her Nana gave it to her at 6 months old. He goes everywhere with her and goes to naptime and bedtime with her everytime. Georgie is basically part of the family. I've caught her many, many times, kissing Georgie, caressing him on his head when she holds him, putting him down for naps, cleaning him with a paper towel when he gets a little dirty, etc.

-A couple of times when I have put Marisa in a time-out she just looks at me for a few seconds with no expression on her face and then just laughs! How can you 1.stay mad and 2.not laugh yourself?

-Marisa loves to dance. Any kind of music makes her cute little body wiggle. One of her favorite things to watch with me is Dancing with the Stars. She'll ask, "Mommy, watch Dancing with Star?" And during the dances she wants to hold both my hands and imitate what the dancers are doing. Afterwards she will clap her hands and say, "Yay!"

-Marisa loves boys. Especially older boys. Sigh...

Here are a few translations:
-Biaper = Diaper
-Peacup = Peacock
-Cup-ache = Cupcake
-Chicken = Kitchen
-Tute = Cute
-Go on jumping = Go on trampoline
-Hold you = Hold me
-Swing and Slide = Park/Playground
-Munch = Lunch
-Duice = Juice
-Racoocoon = Raccoon
-Boodee = Boogie

Happy Birthday Little Marisa!!!

Isn't it amazing how much they pick up at such a young age?!? I love when Carson reads to me too-- my favorite is when he closes the book and says "The End"... such a fun age. And yet... oh so challenging!

Glad things are going well girlie. Luv you

Happy Birthday Marissa! She is so cute! My kids use to say "hold you", I just loved it when they would say "mom, I wanna hold you."
