It happened. GASP!
My baby isn't a baby anymore. GASP!
She is officially a walking, talking, defiant, cuddly, dirt under the nails, smart, sweet, hyper active, chatty, outdoorsy, potty training, coloring, throwing, milk chugging, black bean eating, wild, screaming, arms thrown around the neck hugging, absolutely precious
2 Year Old!!!!!!!
I am still not sure how this happened or how it happened so quickly. I can still remember the night we came home to the house and the dogs met you for the first time (even though I lost the video) and I feel like it was just last night I was rocking the bouncer with my feet praying you would finally fall back asleep after a late night feeding. I will never forget that night the 3 of us were laying in the bed and she finally found her voice and started screaming and I can just picture me sitting in that ugly yellow t-shirt as you took your first steps in between daddy and I.
How can you already be 2????
I am not going to lie I may or may not have ugly cried on the way home from my parents house after setting up for the birthday party. I will admit I may have been listening to a song that reminds me of my Cathy which was a bad idea in the first place, but I think I just needed to cry and get it all out.
Now that I am done boohooing about my baby growing up way to fast we can move on to the real reason I am writing this post
I am so glad we got most of the set up done the night before since the party was scheduled for 11 because we were afraid it would be super hot since it was the end of July in the South . Thankfully it turned out to be a beautiful day for a pool party.
My sister was our photographer for the day so I will have to get her pictures, but here are a few pictures from the day.
We started off the big day with some turkey naturally and then we moved on to some birthday doughnut holes.
Some of the pre birthday set up. The hat, the decorations going up, the cake, the wreath, lots of Elmo.
Closeups of our pom pom people my awesome MIL and I made
A friend gifted me these awesome giant Elmo and Big Bird balloons. They were a huge hit with the monkey!!
The big gift from Mama and Daddy! She loved it and now we just have to get it from my parents house since we didn't have enough space in the cars to get it home.
A few random pictures from the day.
Last, but not least a little collage I put together from birth your first day on Earth, your first birthday, to the amazing person you are becoming today at just 2 years old.
Happy Birthday my precious wild child!! I love you more and more everyday! You are a precious light in this crazy world and I never want you to change or stop being you because you are fantastic and amazing exactly the way you are!
Mommy and Daddy love you Punkin Head
