you are two now.
you love to sing your abc’s, twinkle twinkle little star, and Christmas songs, even still. you love the “Go sleep, Mama!” game, and shouting to wake me. Your favorite color is pink, and now, like your sister, you love asking me how to spell things and writing them down in your adorable scribble. you are feisty and strong, tenderhearted and kind.
you are flitting between worlds, you are quicksilver. You are dancing in discovery, you are twirling towards independence. You are sparkling life, you are stardust, you're a lightning bolt. And for just a flash, I caught you, froze you in the tall grasses, to burn this and every moment onto my heart for eternity.
