Whew... How can she be two???
I meant to post this yesterday, but some stuff got in the way of me having computer time (nothing serious, just busy-ness) and since today is her actual birthday, and right about now, two years ago she was taking her first breaths, this feels appropriate. So much has changed...

She looks so much like Pip here.

Every day she adds new words to her vocabulary. It's hard to believe that I was so worried about her not talking a year ago. One of her newest acquisition: delishush (that would be delicious). She's also started to understand that she can request certain foods for meals, or decide between a couple of options. Ginny loves pancakes, ham & cheese, grapes, oranges, chicken fried rice, yoghurt, toast with jam, french toast, soup & buns, and any kind of pasta. Other than that little blip when she was sick earlier this month, she's a great little eater. She's getting better with her spoon, but still has problems with remembering to hold it straight so that it doesn't dump down her front.
She's grown again, I swear. Almost all her pants are too short. And her shirts are showing off too much tummy for my liking. Still waiting on those rotten 2-year molars to make an appearance, although they seem to have settled down again and aren't hurting her too much right now.
Ginny recognizes almost all her letters and numbers, and can sing most of the alphabet song, just not in one long stretch. She's still struggling with colours. Everything is yellow, brown, or purple when we ask. My Beloved is helping her learn to use her toothbrush on her own every night as a part of her bedtime routine. We'll give potty training another go in the new year. Napping has recently become a challenge, with her not wanting to nap at all. It makes for long evenings.

She certainly keeps us on our toes. And I wouldn't have it any other way!
