Two!

The baby of the family turned two in late April and we celebrated this past weekend with a barnyard-themed party at a nearby petting zoo.

It was a chilly day, but that didn’t stop a lot of friends and family members from joining us to celebrate the girl.

My mom made the most adorable farm animal cupcakes.

The kids all had a blast feeding sheep, goats, and calves and running around to their hearts’ content.

I took a moment to enjoy a pig cupcake. The other white meat?

Now that she’s two, our youngest is really developing her own personality and talking much more. She tends to be quite serious at times, and likes a little alone time once in a while, especially when she’s tired. She is definitely more timid than her sister, but is a natural caretaker. When she lets her silly side show, we all roar with laughter.

My two-year-old is getting pretty good at her numbers and colors. She loves Minnie Mouse, books, puppies, and anything purple.

I absolutely love having two daughters and watching their bond as sisters grow.

The baby chicks and ducks got a big smile from the girl.

Happy birthday to our dear baby girl. We love celebrating you. E-I-E-I-O.

Two!

I woke up Saturday morning to this face: That of an excited two-year-old and devout Minnie Mouse enthusiast.

We enjoyed the park gazebo we rented for her first birthday party so much we couldn’t resist renting it again this year. This year’s theme was Minnie Mouse.

My mom was responsible for creating the awesome cake.

During the party a friend and I discussed how you truly don’t understand the phrase “they grow up so quickly” until you have a child of your own. It seems so cliché, but it so amazingly true.

I cherish all these moments and love watching her grow into the person she will be.

We were blessed to have a lot of friends and family attend to celebrate with us.

Happy birthday to my dear girl. I cannot believe you are two. You bring such joy to our lives.
