So, en lieu of a birthday post, I'm dedicating this entire post to my beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyed
The next few pictures of her in blue are from today. She was sitting there acting silly for the camera and I got several good shots of her. She cracks me up!
Then there are her summer swimming pictures...
Next is one of the few pictures I actually took of her at her birthday party. (yea, I got NO pictures with her myself, OR with her dad OR with the cake I made her. But I did get a very good picture of her and her nana)
And these three were taken early in the summer at my mom's house in the very first swimming pool we ever got her (when she was just turning one).
This girl has kept us all on our toes. It takes more than one person to keep up with her when you take her out in public. She is extremely vocal about what she wants and what she thinks about everything. She has come up with several ways to call me: mommy, maw maw, and mom; it just depends on what mood she's in at the time. She already has a major attitude and I have no idea where she got that from...
She loves to be chased around the house. When she gets real quiet, you can usually find her under a table or behind a chair with my chapstick or something else she's not supposed to have (like a permanent marker or toilet paper). She
There are not enough words to describe this little fire cracker of a child but I couldn't love her more. She has definitely faced some challenges since her little sister arrived. She wasn't sure about sharing the attention and still struggles with it from time to time. When she wants you to pay attention to her but you have the baby, she has plenty of ideas of where you can put the baby and will go around pointing to them and naming them (baby swing, baby chair, baby night night...etc.). It's funny most of the time.
If I had to predict the future, I would say that this blonde beauty and I will be butting heads a lot. We already do and she barely can put a sentence together! She can be the sweetest little girl one second and turn around be a little stinker the next. (I also don't know where she got that from!)
She's absolutely perfect though and we wouldn't want her to be any other way.
So there is your update (with pictures!) of our first born. I'll hopefully be putting one together soon on our second born!
