Happy 2nd Birthday, Sylvia

Sylvia made her entrance to world exactly two years ago today. It doesn't seem like it could have been that long ago. I just went back and reread my post about the birth. Yikes. Doesn't make me super excited to do it again someday, but it makes me remember how awesome it was to finally meet her.

I don't think I could have guessed what a cute and hilarious little girl I was going to get.

She's the spitting image of her dad and loves books like her mom. I dream of her being some kind of super-smart scientist ballerina when she gets older. That's a real thing, right?

Man, a lot changes in two years.

Sylvia Pauls: Escape Artist

Sylvia and our cat have something in common: If they can get their heads through something, their bodies will follow. Apparently, Sylvia gets frustrated when we don't open the baby gate for her in a timely manner. To avoid the hassle, she found a way to bypass the gate altogether. I blame Lennie for teaching her this.

We're already dreading the day when she gets her head stuck. Until then, this is pretty darn clever.
