I am feeling tired lately…like the perpetual tiredness. Oh, you know that feeling too? It is probably because of that sweet baby who has decided he doesn’t want to sleep through the night…ever. But a certain busy two year old definitely can wear me out too. These winter days tend to get long when the three of us are stuck inside all day. The everyday can get tiresome and monotonous. But there are so many sweet things about the everyday that I don’t want to forget. What a blessing it is to see the everyday through the eyes of a two year old.
Everyday after you wake up from your nap you want to watch a “moo-vie”. And not only watch a movie, but you always request milk and a cheese stick too. The funny thing is that you would hardly even watch a movie until a few months ago and now all of a sudden you are obsessed. We made a rule that you can only watch one movie after your nap…to keep you from asking to watch movies all the time (although you still ask!). You always choose the same Veggie Tales movie and you pretty much have it memorized…and so do I.
Everyday you pull a chair into the bathroom when I am getting ready. (Okay, so I don’t really get ready everyday, but on the days that I do…you are there too.) You always bring in the red chair and a few toys to play with. And of course you bring snacks and milk too…you don’t go many places without those two things. Every once in awhile I wish that I could have a little privacy, but I know I would miss your company so much.
Everyday you do some sort of farming. You prefer to go to the real farm with dad, but if you can’t you do your farming at home. You have tons of tractors and you are always pretending to haul poop (manure) and corn. You also like to set up all your little cows in the pen and feed them hay…you take such good care of those little cows. If you could choose, you would spend everyday in your jammies too. You like to be comfy and cozy!
Everyday you play the piano and sing at the top of your lungs. Papa plays the piano with you whenever you visit him and you have decided that you like to play at home too. You always need music just like Papa. It can be any book though. It is so awesome to hear you belting out songs like “Holy, Holy”. I hope you always love to sing your heart out. And you still have your milk and snacks…just in case you get really hungry while you are playing your songs. 🙂
Everyday you ask to play “pee-dough”. Your mama doesn’t always have the energy to get out all the play dough stuff and make a big mess, but the play dough comes out quite often. You got new play dough toys for your birthday and you are loving them. This particular day your Uncle Owen stopped in to play with you. You thought that was pretty awesome. You love when people spend time with you.
I love that I get to spend everyday with you, Levi. What a gift. You are turning into quite the little character as a two year old. This is just a small peek into our everdays. Nothings special, but things I don’t ever want to forget.
