two years old.

"one day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. i suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for mrs. darling put her hand to her heart and cried, 'oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!' this was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth wendy knew that she must grow up. you always know after you are two."

- the adventures of peter pan, j.m. barrie

i know it is dramatic, but i can't get this little quote out of my head. 

she turned two yesterday. she's well on her way to growing up, and soon she will know it, too. 
i'll miss my baby, but i love this smart, funny, darling kid of mine.

(more on life with a two-year-old coming soon.)
(bottom pictures from jekyll island. more of them are also coming soon.)

Oh bradie I love the quote. That is my most, favorite book, ever and the picture fit so perfectly. Your little girl is growing so fast.
