Two and Half

Dear Abby,

Hello baby! Yes, you will always be my baby no matter how old you are. OK?

Your two and a half-year old self is busy with the crayons while I am writing this to you. Nope, you are not busy coloring but you are busily inserting the crayons in a green colored bottle which I emptied a little while ago. It’s not surprising at all, you do this thing all the time – putting your toys or things in any container then removing it, afterwards you put it back, then you remove it again, and the cycle goes on until you get distracted with something else.

You do coloring sometimes but you can’t do it properly yet. I’m still happy though because you try to do it.  I always show you how to do it correctly but you want to do it your way. I am sad sometimes because you don’t listen to me like you used to and that was before you turned two. It’s not your fault though, I blame your age.

I’m not worried because I know that this is just a phase, you will change and behave as you grow older.

If there’s one thing that worries me, it’s your behavior when you get annoyed with Addy. You tend to hit her when she tries to grab your toy or anything that you think is yours. Daddy and I always tell you that you should treat her gently and share the toys to her but to no avail.

Thankfully, you don’t hit her hard. Unfortunately, I can’t leave you two alone. Hopefully soon, you’ll be a gentle ‘ate’ (older sister) to Addy. I know you will, I just don’t know when. Perhaps when you turn three?

Of course, you are not bad. You misbehave sometimes but oftentimes you are a good and sweet girl. Though you make Addy cry, you also know how to make her laugh.

Also, though you are not yet good at coloring and writing ,your memory is good. You know many nursery song already including the alphabet song. You can even recite the numbers 1- 20. You can also name the basic colors and shapes. You are a smart kid and I don’t need to tell you whom you inherited such trait, right?

Oh have I mention that when we scold you, you know how to divert our attention? Yes, you are so good at that. It’s either you would ask a question about something or kiss and hug us. Very clever huh?

What else? hmmnnn…I have to end it here for now. I will write you again when I can. Stay strong and healthy. I love you baby!

Hugs and kisses,


Thank you!
