Toddler Tuesday: My baby turns 2!

Well, I can't believe another year has come and gone.  My little girl is now 2 years old today.  Her birth was a dream come true.  It took us longer than expected to get pregnant with our little one but she was definitely worth the wait!

Now that she is two she has become very independent and wants to do everything all by herself.  She wants to put on her shoes all by herself, even if they are on the wrong feet.  She insists on drinking out of a "big girl cup" even though half of the water ends up all down the front of her shirt instead of in her mouth. She is learning new words every day and it always surprising us with how smart she is.

She now has her own "big girl bed"!!  And she could not be more thrilled about it!  She loves it! She also sits in her own booster chair at the table with us too.  Crazy how things change so fast!

K has also shown herself to be an incredible big sister.  She always wants to be there to help her sister whenever she can.  If S is crying she comes to tell me "S, hungry!"  She also has to make sure that S always has her little Hippo Luvi Blanket to keep her company.  It is a must!  K also loves to read to her sister and lets her play with her toys.  Sometimes she thinks that she is old enough to pick her up all by herself, but I have to remind her that S is little and K needs help if she is going to pick her up.  Still...I love the adorable bond that these two girls have together.  S just loves when K comes around and is always smiling up at her and laughing.  K, you are a wonderful big sister!  Thanks for taking such good care of S.

We are also going to try and start potty training within the next week or so, so I am sure that my next Tuesday post will be all about "POTTY TRAINING!"  We'll see.

K dressed herself today :)

She loves her new bed!

Today for K's birthday we woke up and made pancakes and then went to the park.  K LOVES the park!  The pictures were taken with my cell phone so they aren't great but at least they are a memory.  We'll do the presents and a party this weekend.  But today was still a fun day!  :)

We love you K!  Mommy, Daddy, and S all wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Thanks for being such a special part of our family! :)
