...your 2nd birthday! I love parties, doing invitations & decorations so I start planning in advance so I have time to make everything. We are doing an art themed party because it's something you really enjoy. You are always asking to color & paint & will focus for long periods of time on it. I made your banner, paintbrush wreath, invitations & am painting the tablecloth. It's so much fun & you love to join in & try to help. Can't believe it's almost time for you to be two...been the best two years of my life xo

& a Heeler get together. Loved having a long weekend with you because we always have so much fun hanging out together. We went to the park & threw confetti eggs which you loved. We worked on some things for your upcoming birthday. Watered the garden which is one of your favorite things, we are getting our first veggies already. We had a Heeler get together at the dog park, you really enjoyed running around with the puppies & helped adopt out a little chihuahua to a nice couple. It was rainy Monday so we played games, colored, hung out in the teepee & cooked out. You are talking so much now it's amazing & communicate very well with little frustration.
A couple of my favorite things you have been doing...you say 'mommy sit' & then we just sit there & look around for a bit & then get up & continue on, sometimes it happens over & over. When we meet people you smile & point to or grab me & say 'my mommy', don't think anything makes me happier. You say 'hand' & reach out for mine, you do this when you want to show me something or are feeling unsure, you will also add 'walk' if you want to wander with me. You say 'sleepy' & then 'show' if you want to watch a movie or show slumber party style in your room. You love airplanes & say 'airplane' very loudly anytime you hear or see one, then we find it in the sky. When you bump your knee or get a big bite, instead of touching it you wave & say 'hi boo boo'. You absolutely love the water & say 'swimming' or 'water' a lot, you have a permanent grin whenever you are in the pool. You have been mimicking me a lot & say 'ok' & 'bye bye love you' 'see you later' to the puppies when we leave & to anyone else you are leaving. We are counting & working on your alphabet & break out in song a lot of times when we are at the store. A singing child is a happy child! We love you, you are becoming such a sweet, curious, helpful, animated little girl xo

...with fun times & good memories. We went to Erin's birthday party Saturday after the park & it was a huge building filled with trampolines. The minute we walked in you started squealing & yelling ooh play play! You walked straight on to the trampoline & started bouncing away, no fear. You took a great nap after that. Then the next morning we went to the zoo, it was so fun for you to see all the animals. I felt like the zoo was well done & all the animals seemed to be happy, well taken care of & enough space to roam. Of course I had to question the zoo keeper about the cheetahs, they were my only concern with space to run. But you stayed so calm & peaceful & never screamed at the animals like the other kids. So glad we have taught you to respect animals & their space, so important. After we went to lunch at the park & you played in the water, what a wonderful weekend with my loves. Oh & you've also become very interested in coloring all the time & have taken to drawing your art on our glass door. You absolutely love it, have running commentary about the things you are drawing & yay yourself all the time, especially when you draw circles xo
