Yesterday our little girly turned 2. We are baffled every day by how ridiculously cute she is. She says all kinds of silly things. Lately she's been saying "yes" a lot, having just learned how to pronounce the "s" at the end. She can pronounce Damon's name a little better, too; sounds like "Da-nun!" She actually is getting pretty good at communicating; now nearly everything she says has some discernible meaning to us. She has quite a fiery streak; Damon was much more mellow at her age. She loves playing "1-2-3" with Uncle Mike -- on three she gets launched into the air and lands on the bed, laughing hysterically. She loves the beach, too -- we went there last Wednesday with Aunt Liz, and Audrey would probably still be there now if she had her way. She loved standing there in the shallow water, yelling "One! Teew! Thwee!" at the ocean and then jumping when the waves came. She loves cartoons, and her repertoire of theme songs and characters from her DVDs and the dozens of shows on Noggin, PBS, etc. is skyrocketing. One day she was counting for us (to eleven, that's as far as she knows), and we thought, on a whim, to ask her if she could count in Spanish; she got up to cinco, no problem. (Thanks to Dora, of course.) She brings so much joy into our family, we love her SO much and hope she has a fantastic third year of her gleeful little life. Happy Birthday, Audrey!
