Today is Anjali's birthday! There is something about the 2nd Birthday that is pretty cool - this year, she is aware that it is her birthday. As such, presents, cupcakes, a song and attention are required, thank you. Although, you can "Ixnay on the pankingsay". She knows better.
And we are more than willing to oblige.
I could wax poetic on my little girl, but that would be redundant since long time readers of this blog are already well aware of exactly how tickled we are with our girl.
Instead, I will share some favorite photos and quotes with you. If you do not mind.
NO! I can do it myself! (this includes buckling herself into the car, pouring her drink, wiping her own butt, getting out of the car, doing her taxes.....)
I get a handstamp. Den you WEAVE me. I missed you and I CWIED. Can I have a muffin? (She LOVES going to the gym's nursery. Don't believe a single word out of her lying lips.)
Mama! Dat cart stuck in the MUD. It's SCARED. We hafta save it! To the rescue center! (Abandoned shopping carts left on the side of the road inspire compassion in my wee one. Could not be prouder. I guess.)
Ni-hao, Mama!! (Are you seeing a theme with the television, here? Awesome. If she starts calling my dad "ye-ye", we have got real problems, folks.)
RAWR! I a scarwy MONSTER! (Indeed.)
I have ONE neck! (Damned shame, or we could make millions on the carnival circuit, no?)
