You hear it all the time, in fact, almost daily, that our babies grow up so fast before our eyes….well, it’s true, and my baby is not a baby anymore…#2 is a huge change folks, huge. My sister warned me of the amount of changes that would transpire when number 2 rolled around, and that she would start to talk my ear off and that her mind would become an amazing sponge of learning.
So much has transpired in this little girl’s life, but I think she would agree the best gift and greatest change has been the addition of her little sister. She has grown into her big sister roll like a champ, as she continuously cares and loves on baby Selah…the transition from being the only one to having another person in the house was as smooth as butter…it’s like she was ready, wanting another person to go about her day with.
We held her actual party on a different day, so that her birth-day was just us–low-key and whatev.
she started her birthday morning off with a brand new father-daughter tradition–daddy took her out on a birthday breakfast date, and she got all pretty for him. my heart was all ooowwwyy, gooooeeyy, full of melted love from this sight.
what anna looks like before she’s had breakfast =) what’s up??!!
you could tell she knew she was his princess.
when she got home, I had her birthday present waiting for her…
we had a wonderful afternoon hanging at our neighborhood park/carnival shindig with some friends.
we love our girl.
no matter how much I ponder how to do things better for her everyday, all I can ever hope for is that she will know just how much she is fully loved. And that she has changed us forever for the better.
we are so glad that God picked you to be our little one.
I cannot wait to see where your two little feet will take you in this life. We are watching you (and not in a creepy way).
happy 2nd birthday my little love.
