Sweet Anna. You are 2!


You will be two years old tomorrow.  I guess we always believed people when they say your kids grow up in the blink of an eye...and we learned this weekend, that this statement is so sadly true.  You have changed our world in two short years.  You make us laugh, cry tears of happiness, and create the largest grins on both mine and your dads faces. 

Not only are you stinkin' adorable, you are smart as a whip.  Your vocabulary is growing with every day.  You are putting together two and three word sentences and "correcting" your own pronunciation daily.  <---- this one makes me sad a bit.  Just today you were saying slowly to yourself, "Blank...blanki...Mommy, want blankie!".  Until today, you would say "digi" for blanket.  Can you say "digi" for me just one more time?

We celebrated your first two years of life over the past weekend.  All your playgroup friends arrived at Monkey's Treehouse on Friday afternoon and we continued the celebration on Saturday with family.  It was amazing weekend filled with lots of love, presents, amazing weather and did I mention the LOVE?!

At Monkey Treehouse  L to R: Lucca, Brady, Sophie B., Emily, Ryan, Andrew, YOU!, and Jake

Singing Happy Birthday! 

Blowing out your candles.  Make a wish sweet girl.

Opening presents like a champ!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I hope you know how much you are loved.

It seemed like yesterday you came into this world.  All 7lbs 15 oz of you.  You made a small squeek and snuggled right into my chest.  I became a new person.  I became your mom.  And I became me.
