So I made it — two years old. And for my second birthday, Daddy made me a cake, which as a well-mannered girl, I was eager to share with both Daddy and Mommy. Even though I came down with a cold today (and was up all night watching TV in bed with Mommy and Daddy), it was a great day. We started out this morning with a short trip to the park where I played on the slide and swing and played catch with Daddy. Then we came home for a nap and after lunch, Daddy and I went to the Jewel for some shopping and a birthday balloon (it’s a yellow smiley face with red lipstick kisses).
I’ve heard from lots of people today, either by phone or by mail. Grandma, Barbie, Gretchen, Sammy, Michaela, Zach, Auntie Nay, my Ritter cousins, Bari and James and Carol Z. But a special thanks goes to my mommy, who of late has been putting up with quite a bit of my ‘tude as I mature a bit. Thanks, Mommy. I love you.
