As a new 2 year old our Scarlet is pretty adorable and she charms every person she meets. She's tiny and girly and smiles with great sincerity, all her teeth showing. She's talking much more but also loves to say a bunch of rubbish we can't understand. She vehemently pushes her hair out of her face when it gets in the way, so we wear a bow everyday. She has a little purse that she wears like a cross-body bag and she keeps her now half the original size duppy in it (nice for me cause I don't have to carry it around). She loves wearing tutus and rainboots. She studies me when I put on makeup in the mornings and inevitably asks to have some of her own. Then we pretend to put it on her cheeks or lashes which leaves her with a very satisfied look in her eye, prancing out the bathroom to show anyone who will look. She likes to eat off of our plates, all the yummy adult stuff. She loves spending time with her brothers and prefers to do exactly what they are doing (like getting tucked in with hot cocoa and popcorn for a movie night) which sometimes leads to trouble since she can't always participate in the big kid fun.
And right now, since we're coming back from hotel rooms and sleeping cozily next to mom and dad all night long, she's also avoiding spending time in her bed. Big fusses when it's time to go to sleep and huge amounts of lolligagging happening.
Can you believe this face could ever be that naughty. No way!
Love you Scarlet Evangeline. You're perfect just the way you are.
