When you were two, you were a tiny Muppet of a girl, all curls and whirls and bounce and fire.
When you were two, you danced when you were happy; clapping your hands and snorting and giggling.
When you were two, you could also kick the ass of anyone who needed it with your fists of fury. Your fury is legendary.
When you were two, Hello Kitty was your best friend. You called it “Hi Kitty.”
When you were two, your laughter sounded like the tinkling of a thousand bells.
When you were two, your mother tried to make you a heart cuppity-cake. It looked like testicles.
When you were two, your mother bought herself a present to celebrate your birth.
When you were two, your house was filled with balloons and laughter and love and light.
And for a moment, on the day that you were two, my heart took flight.
Happy Birthday, My Princess of the Bells, Amelia Grace.
