Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Happy Birthday, I'm Two Years Old Today! Written by Alyssa Harris

Happy Birthday, I'm Two Years Old Today! Written by Alyssa Harris

Can you believe it??  I'm 2 years old today!!  Many of you were around when my mommy was pregnant, and she kept you posted about me even while in labor at the hospital. Back in the day, I was known as BabyHarris, but now I'm known as Alyssa Nicole Harris.

I'm writing this today because she's in denial.  She can't believe two years have already gone by.

Seriously, compare me 2 years ago to the me today... I was tiny at just over 7 pounds, and now I'm a big girl at a whopping 26 pounds!

I talk and talk and talk all day.  I say hundreds of words already, and mommy and daddy have to watch what they say around me because I repeat everything! I read books all day, everyday.  I can't get enough of them. Daddy is sick of them, but when he doesn't want to read with me, I have him get me some "Pispashios" and we sit together in his Lazyboy chair and eat them together.

I invited some friends over yesterday.  We went to the park and had a blast!  I'm still finicky with cake, so I got a Birthday Rice Krispie Treat!  I love my MiMi's Rice Krispie Treats! The balloons on the top were from my mommy's baby shower before I was born.

I got lots of new things so I can take over more of the house, which is my mission! I already control three rooms!  Elie Jane also had a lot of fun opening presents with me.

You see my MiMi in the background?  She was a little confused as to why I was standing on the table opening presents, but I was safe.

These two years have gone by fast and I've learned a lot. If you see my mommy, don't remind her that she's getting old. I saw another gray hair, and I don't think that's a good thing...

Happy Birthday to Me, and a pinch to grow a few inches!!

Happy Birthday Alyssa, Donna she is so precious. I remember when my daughter was two, and now that she is 13, I wish I could change her back to the precious 2 year old!

Super cute!  She is such a doll.  Happy Birthday Alyssa!  I do remember for so long she didn't have name.  I'm glad to see your name choice "won".  I can't believe our kids are two and almost two.  I can't believe we're about to have another!  I have to learn how to insert pictures on here.  It really makes your post so much more personal.

Hey, Alyssa. Like your mother, we can't believe that you are two already. Our little boy is growing just as quick. Here is wishing you a Happy Belated Birthday. All our love, Jim & Maria

PS, Say "HI" to your Mom.

Aja, Yes, it was an ordeal to pick a name. To insert pictures, click on the image above the text box that looks like a little tree, and then browse your computer for the file.

Jim, I'll tell mommy you said HI!  She took me to get a shot this morning, and I didn't even cry! My height is only in the 20th percentile, but my head is in the 70th percentile!  My head is so big from everyone telling me how cute I am!!

Happy Birthday Alyssa and congrats to mom too!  It can be hard for moms to believe how quickly you grow up :)!  Yeah!

I was waiting for this post but I didn't realize she was a mid-November baby. I knew she had to have turned 2 already.

You're right about being in denial. I am too. That was just our babies, sleeping ALL day only getting up to eat and goes right back to sleep. What happened?

Oh yeah... they grow up too fast.
