So I suck my thumb, what's it to you?

It's what I do. It doesn't mean I'm insecure, shy, or needy. Daddy plays on his computer. Mommy organizes things. I suck my thumb. Got a problem with that?

I also need you to pay attention to me and not that new baby. If you don't, I'll say your name over and over until you do. If you snap at me I'll cry and you'll feel like an ass.

I'm super independent, but I like to sit on your lap for long periods of time. The two are not mutually exclusive.

I want to do what I want to do, even if you tell me I can't. I'll explain to you that I really want to do it. If I don't convince you and you still tell me I can't, I'll be devastated and cry. And you'll feel like an ass.

I'm not interested in being potty trained. This way's more convenient, anyway.

If I don't come when you call it's because what I'm doing is more important than dinner or bath or whatever it is you want me to do. If you yell or start counting to 3 real loud I'll cry and you'll feel like an ass.

I'm two. Deal with it.

So pretty much.... "Dad, you're an ass". So much for her being smitten with the new baby huh?

Hang in there guys... you will all get through it, think you survived, then she'll turn THREE.

We miss you and love you all. Kiss our babies for us!

I am glad that someone else is an Ass, besides me. She sounds like Justin. I wish they were going to see one another in Dec too!

This sounds so much like Lucy...and very much like what I'm expecting from her when our baby comes. Maybe by spring you'll have some tips for us on getting through!
