My daughter Antonia (aka “Tua”) is two years old today:
Yes, last year I said “Only one baby photo per year,” and then she made my list of The top 10 things to give thanks for. But this is a video, which strangely enough the Congressional Budget Office does not score as a baby photo. Go figure!
Tua, as she calls herself, has a fondness for adverbs. She leap-frogged over “no” and went directly to “never.” Currently, her favorite word is “just” as in “Can she just watch some videos? For a second?”
She knows most of the lyrics to Waltzing Matilda now, and may be the only US toddler who can tell you that “a billabong is a pool of deep water.” Australian Jeopardy — here we come.
In the spirit of 25 random things about Tua, I will add that she plays the chase game “I’m gonna get you” by running toward you, and she plays hide and seek by ‘hiding’ on the other side of a transparent glass door.
I wonder a lot about what the world will be like when she’s my age, which is one of the things that keeps me blogging. I hope to get her blogging by, say, age 5, unless you all think that’s too soon. She already seems to have a lot to say.
