In two point five months my baby girl will be three years old! I just don't understand where the time goes. Just yesterday she was learning to walk and now she is such a big girl. She doesn't even look like a toddler anymore!
In other news we have officially entered the the "Why?" phase of the toddler world.. Most of our conversations go like this...
EK: Mommy, why dis called apple?
Me: Well, Emma Kate, I think God named it apple.
Me: I have no clue Emma Kate.
Me: I don't know....
EK: Mommy, you wike pickles?
Me: Yes, I like pickles.
EK: I don't wike pickles. Why you wike pickles?
Me: Because they are tasty.
Some days I really do think I will go crazy if EK asks me another "Why?" question! But I try to remind myself that she is just being a normal two year old and she wants to know the Who? What? When? Where? and Why? about everything. I know she comes to us to answer these questions because in her little mind she thinks that Mommy and Daddy know everything. I know I will miss this one day when she is a teenager and comes to the conclusion that her Daddy and I know nothing and she knows it all. Just thinking about the teenage years makes me want to treasure these little conversations with her a little more.
One day I am going to long for those little arms to squeeze me so tight around my neck and for her to crawl up on our laps and tell us "Hold me peas". I love these little moments with EK and I pray I never forget just how special each day is. I thank God for making me EK's mommy :)
