You are two now Elliot. Not a baby and not a man, but such a rad little dude. You continue to adore your brother and enjoy playing alongside him, copying him and trying to repeat all that he has to say (even if it's just the highlight of a sentence!). You think whatever he does is fun and try your hardest to do exactly as he is doing, even if it is a hand stand on the lounge floor!
You giggle and laugh - a sound I love to hear and smile when I do. You love dancing to the Wiggles and have to watch some Wiggles footage at least once a day. You show me the dance moves by saying "like this, mummy, like this" and you put your arms in the 'Dorothy the Dinosaur' position.
Your favourite word is "no" and are prone to throw some short-lived 'terrible twos' tantrums. It's really hard for you as you are not yet able to communicate exactly what you want all the time so get very frustrated with yourself or me or your father.
You have a good temperament and don't let too much get to you and realise that it is easier to give the toy to Ryan than listen to him cry and scream because you have a toy that he wanted.
We enjoyed a great 3 week break over Summer and we watched you grow so much - in height, in your language (3 word 'sentences' are the norm now), your confidence in the water, and learning to play by yourself with toys. I was sad to say goodbye to the holiday and return to our routine of work and school. I had better start planning our next little holiday............
