me two . . .

today our little brown eyed girl is 2 years old! i can't believe how fast she is growing! and yes . . . she is very dirty! that is a combination of cheetos and chocolate cake batter. sound tastey? and yes . . . she is nakey! and i'm proud to say she hasn't had a diaper on the entire day and hasn't had one accident! (big girl panties are definitely going to be one of her birthday presents!) i'm not sure if 2 year olds understand birthdays . . . but she has been walking around the house all day (yes . . . nakey!) singing, "it's me burbay . . . it's me burbay . . . it's me burbay!" and not to mention . . . that if you ask her any question the answer is, "me two!"

happy birthday baby girl!

another sneak peek . . .

tailored bed skirt for the custom vintage fire truck crib set

i wish . . .

i understood the thought process of my silly little girls! little miss has vacation bible school this week at her school. she has been so excited about it . . . and was sitting on the porch this morning begging for me to take her, 'right now!' when we get there we see her group . . . it's little miss and her 2 best friends from school! how awesome . . . at least i thought she would think so . . . but i was stuck there for an hour with her completely attached to me . . . when i finally got away from her after an hour. . . tears . . . red eyes . . . all out bawling! and what's funny . . . it wasn't just her crying! little miss was crying because she didn't want to stay . . . little shrimp was crying and kicking because she didn't want to go home!
