Two years ago today, I got up, went to work (feeling slightly HUGE) :) and then went to an afternoon Doctor's Appointment... Several hours later, this bundle of beauty and joy joined our lives.

6 lbs. 11 ounces... 19 3/4 inches long and the softest little head of hair.

an instant Daddy's girl of course...

And then the night we brought her home from the hospital she looked so content in her own little bed... and I sat and stared and stared at her...

And before we knew it she was ONE!

And now here she is, in her best "Ta-DA!" pose.
Our girl is really getting bigger every day. In the last 6 months, she kicked the paci habit completely (we were just doing it at bed-time) and has really started making strides in the potty-training department.

Her vocabulary has just exploded so quickly that I have lost track of all the words and phrases she says. It's so funny at this age, it seems as though they watch you do something or say something once and they can repeat it. Sobering thought, isn't it?

She can count to 10 but usually it's "1-2-3-7-8-9-10" We will keep working on the others. :)

She knows her colors  and all her main shapes and can identify so many different things. What a joy it is to teach her and watch her learn!

Her favorite meals are Chick Fil a and Spaghetti. HA! She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants and can tell you what it is. We are still working on expanding her eating-- and slowly but surely, it's happening.

She is a true blessing every single day and we are so very grateful to be her parents and to be able to raise her to Love God and Love Others.
