1D is "standard 2/1": could be three cards if 4-4-3-2. 1NT would be any balanced 14(+) to 17(-).

2D is inverted, showing a limit raise or better. Like the agreements or not, it denies a four card major and promises five diamonds if limit. Could be four with significant extras. 2N would be natural and gf.

At this point 2M shows high card values in the suit bid and at least invitational opposite a LR. 2N is balanced, either a weak no trump or 17+ and slammish, forcing to 3D. 3D would be minimum, unbalanced, not invitational. 3C or 3M show shortness, presumably extra values. 3N is 17(+) - 20(-), poor controls.

I think the only choices are 3 or 3, but y'all may have a different opinion.
