Birthday Girl!

Today is my darling daughter's birthday! She is 2 years old and cute as a button. Two also happens to be her favorite number to say these days. She is a petite little girl, but she is super active. She can outlast any kid or adult for that matter. I kid you not. She does not stop moving, ever, unless she is napping or asleep at night. When I meet other parents, they are always surprised by her activeness and ask me if she is always like this. Yes.

Even though she wears me out to the core, she never ceases to amaze me. DH and I feel really blessed to have her in our lives. I feel like I blinked and she turned another year older. Let's take a quick stroll down memory lane.1 year old2 months old1 month old and pretty darn cute, but as you can see below, it wasn't all smiles.1 month old and fully into the colicky stage. I never knew what hit me.

Happy Birthday Melody! I loved your 'memory lane' photos. That girl keeps getting cuter and cuter! My daughter was a real mover too! She could out run all the other kids, regardless of age. It's a good thing!

Happy Birthday Melody! I hope your day is filled with happiness. I really love those photos of her too, so cute. I dont know if I could have handled the collicky stage though, the lactose intolerance was bad enough with our daughter which lasted nearly 1 year!

Many happy returns of the day Melody!

Chris used to go nonstop like that until he would crash and burn. I have a photo of him passed out on his plate at the dinner table when he was about 3.

Love the woolen knit toys and they are so comfortable to the baby...I remember my child's early days seeing these pictures here.

Congratulations. She's a cookie cut out of your husband! I love seeing Elijah and the teddy bear in the shots with her.

Oh my goodness, she was so precious. She still is, but that 2 month old picture melts my heart. Happy birthday, Melody!

And I thought the first time around (with Clark) they said a fast heartbeat meant a boy...so who knows? :)

kim said...

Sorry for the double comments, but I just realized you take her picture between the two toys. Cute idea!
