Just some fun pics

Such a big girl with her piggy's

Attitude, with my tutu and heels

Daddy has some big shoes to fill

I like to wear my hat backwards like my uncle

My little girl is growing up so fast. She is starting to say things like "Mommy, where is my purse and keys?" when she rides in her play car. She makes me wear a crown all the time while we are at home. I tell her she is a princess, so I guess that makes me the queen :) She is very good about saying please and thank you, which makes me very happy. There is something so sweet about your baby saying thank you mommy when you hand her a juice cup or snack. She is constantly drawing us pictures and is so proud to hand them to us. The fridge is full!!! Being a parent is the most wonderful thing in the world and words can not describe it. Children amaze us in so many ways and the smallest thing can be the most rewarding. Praise God for all the blessings in my life!

Birthday Party and Two Year Check Up

Checking out all my gifts

Jumping with my friends (and their parents)

Daddy and me

We had a great time at Anna's 2nd Birthday Party! Thanks to all our friends that came over to celebrate with us. It was a beautiful day and everyone enjoyed the princess castle moon bounce (I think Chad enjoyed it more than the kids). They delivered it on Friday night, so Chad, Anna and I got a little family jumping time in early. I wish we had one of our own, because it was a great workout! Anna received some very nice gifts and has been enjoying hours of fun since. It was great to get together with friends and family and celebrate my baby girl's special day. Everyone keeps telling me that she isn't a baby anymore, but she will always be my baby. She has brought so much joy to our lives that words can not express.

I took Anna this past Friday for her two year check up. The doctor informed me that she is perfect :) Just kidding, she is right on track for her age. She weighed 26.6 lbs and is 34 inches tall. That is the 50% for height and weight. We stopped using the pappy (pacifier) about two weeks ago and it has been a challenge. She still asks for it on occasion and I just try and change the subject. Our next challenge is potty training. I am bribing her with stickers and M&M's. Some days are better than others, but we are trying.
