Happy Birthday, Sweet Baby Girl!

Today you are TWO.  You are the prettiest, spunkiest, funniest, feistiest little girl I know.  You are so independent with a mind of your own.  You're growing up even faster than Hunter did simply because you want to do everything he does so a lot of milestones are happening much earlier.

You adore your brother.  His name is the first word you say when you wake up.  If he is not around you are quick to realize and ask, "Where's Hunter?".  It's a requirement that you give him a hug and kiss before nap time and bed time.  You copy everything he does....hence the growing up so quickly.  I'm not sure what you're going to think of him going off to school four days a week.

After the six torturous weeks of swim lessons you have really come to love swimming.  You fell into the pool one day after swim lessons were done.  You did exactly what you learned and floated on your back.  It was such a proud moment for me and confirmed why we make you kids endure those lessons.  You are now jumping off the top step and swimming to your target (Mommy or Daddy) and then back to the step.

I'm pretty sure you will be some form of a tom boy.  You're a tough girl, that's for sure.  You can hold your own in a crowd of boys.  You have no interest in baby dolls yet.  You do enjoy dressing up and wearing jewelry and would love nothing more than to paint your entire face with makeup.  You like to have your toes painted like Mommy.

We had a quick photo shoot before we left for the beach.  You love the camera.  You are full of personality which is completely evident in these pictures.





You are so precious to us and we are enjoying every minute of watching you grow.
