Annie's Two!

Well at least she was in June...

This year we decided to keep it low key and just have family (and the neighbor friends) over for presents and cake.

It didn't take her long to figure out the whole rip open the package and get a present thing...

Blowing out the candles on her home made ice cream cake!

Though they didn't taste that great, we topped it with nerds just for the color. Most everyone scooped the nerds right off the top :)

Enjoying some of her spoils...

Since this was almost 4 1/2 months ago, I could be wrong but here are her milestones so far:

-still eats like a champ (with me at least, she makes me look bad when I talk her up and then refuses to eat)
-LOVES shoes
-has full conversations with me. At this point most everyone can understand everything she says but right when she turned two I would get the "please translate" looks from other people
-sleeps in a toddler bed
-sleeps with not one, not two, but THREE stuffed animals at night (not necessarily a milestone but I think it's funny)
-loves to pick out and wear hair bows (I've done well :)
-helps me read her books at night (she mostly just remembers what the pages say but sometimes it blows me away
-almost counts to ten (she skips 3 for some odd reason)
-sings her ABCs
-sings and does the actions to: "I'm so glad when Daddy comes home", "I'm a little tea pot", "I am a Child of God", "Popcorn Popping" etc.
-loves it when I paint her finger and toe nails
-loves to color and do crafts with me
-constantly plays pretend (mostly on her own, sometimes demanding my attention to play with her)
-"orders" her food (meaning she usually knows exactly what she wants to eat, SOOO helpful)
-is almost potty trained (we do the pull ups at night because I'm too pregnant to worry about changing sheets everynight)
-loves to swim and even goes under water if enticed enough
-wishes she could play outside at all times of the day/night
-loves to go to nursery
-LOVES her Daddy to death (some nights quite literally)

We love you so much miss Annie!!!! Happy belated birthday to you!!!
