Here is a look at some of the best 2nd birthday sayings to help you with how to say happy birthday to a 2-year-old.
#1 It’s not every day that you get to turn two. But as luck would have it, today’s the one day you do! You’ve grown so much since you were young and one. No more crawling for you now, forget walking, you run! So, here’s a secret, and I know it’s true, today is your birthday and you’re Terrifically Two!
#2 You’re totally two! Have a fabulous birthday, big kisses to you! You’re happy, you’re silly, you’re cute, and you’re sweet. Being around you is such a fantastic treat.
#3 Now that you’re two, I think we should talk. Word on the playground is that you’re now in what they call “The Terrible Twos.” But don’t worry. I know that won’t happen to you. Come on, you? Terrible? No way! So, enjoy your birthday. I’ll make sure everyone knows the truth. Happy 2nd birthday!
#4 Happy birthday to one impressive kid! From crawling to climbing, walking to running, and babbling to singing the ABCs, you’ve grown and learned so much. You’re already a little too clever. I even hear you scribble like Picasso now. Keep it up. You’re making two look good!

#6 Welcome to the Terrible Twos! It’s not as bad as it sounds. You get to throw tantrums that make no sense and cry to get what you want. Everything you see is yours now, and you can say no to everything, even when you mean yes. Enjoy it while it lasts, kid. Happy 2nd birthday!
