Here I am waking up with a smile on my face because I'm 2 years old today.
First thing I do as a 2 year old is drink my morning bottle. What? No chocolate milk? Come on...it's my birthday, for crying out loud!
Next, I give baby her morning bottle.
Time for breakfast and pigtails (Mommy does pigtails while I eat...less stress and whining for both of us).
After breakfast we head to one of my favorite places: The Library. Their story time rocks! The best part of story time is bubbles.
Hey, there are bubbles in the air and in my hair.
Here I am reading with my friend Matthew and his mom, Peipei.
Coloring with Matthew. Well I'm coloring; Matthew is checking to see if gravity still works. Boys.
Second stop: The Mall. Does life get any better? Here I am at the playground.
And here I am with my new shades. It's actually sunny today...a birthday miracle in the Midwest!
Home for lunch and a few verses of "Wheels on the Bus." Then it's time for my nap.
Daddy gets me up and wishes me a happy birthday. Check out my wicked bedhead.
Time for dinner. It's spaghetti night so I have to eat sans shirt!
My party is tomorrow, but I get cake tonight, too. Here's me with my dad.
And here I am with my mom. This was taken just prior to the sugar high. Trust me, you don't want to see pictures of that!
A bath before bedtime.
Doing the post-sugar-high-crash. I'm ready for bed. I start my bottle with Mommy.
And end my bottle with Daddy. It's GREAT being 2!
Stay tuned for pictures of....THE PARTY!
