Happy 2nd Birthday Elsie!

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Two years ago today you were born. It felt like we had waited far too long to meet you. You were much smaller than your brother and sister. I was so used to big babies and you were this little perfect bundle of newness. You didn't have the easiest of starts. I felt so helpless when you cried non-stop for those first few days. We concentrated so much on you getting better that you were simply known as 'Baby' for a whole 7 days before we finally settled on your name 'Elsie Luna'.

Now two years on, It is so hard to believe you were that fragile baby in doll sized clothes. You are the most boisterous, stubborn, cheeky toddler. You like to challenge us all. We joke and call you the naughty one and you certainly play on it. You do have your lovely side too. You love your cuddles and I love it when you come and snuggle with me in the mornings. I love how you think 'Na'night' also means 'I love you'. I love watching you play with Flynn and pretend to be a cat. I love playing the sleepy game with you and watching you scrunch up your face and pretend to snore. What I love most is seeing how happy you are when you can join in with Gracie and Zach in their games. You have the best sibling bond. No matter how challenging you are, you make up for it with that cheeky, happy charm. I wouldn't change a single thing.

Now today, my littlest baby is a two year old. How did that happen? I love you so much Elsie and I cannot wait to watch you grow this next year. Although if it could go a little slower this time around that would be great!

Happy 2nd Birthday Beautiful Girl!
