Phrase Craze

Dear Livia,

You turned two last week. We had a little party for you, just the four of us. You blew out your candles with impressive ease. If you didn’t make a wish, it’s OK. I make wishes for you every day, and I’m sure at least a few of them are bound to come true.

You’re really starting to grow up. Most notably, your speech is improving. You’ve mastered the short phrase. Within the last couple of weeks, you’ve been heard to say all of the following:

  • “Thank you.”
  • “This one.”
  • “I did it!”
  • “That shirt.”
  • “I know!”
  • “Help me!”

But my favorite is “I love you!” That phrase gets you so much positive attention that you say it again and again. We never get sick of hearing it, and we never get tired of saying it back.

We love you, too, our beautiful two-year-old!
