My baby is 2

My sweet Elizabeth turned 2 on December 10th!! What a big girl. Last year on her birthday I was already pregnant with Reed and felt sick and didn't really get to focus on her special day but this year it was really sentimental for me for some reason. I kept thinking about that special day when she entered into our family just 2 short years ago and what a special time it was. How perfect she was in every way and how great it was to be a new mom. I am so thankful for this little girl and the patience she teaches me ha ha. . . She really is a blessing in our home. Here is a little about Elizabeth at 2 years. . Elizabeth loves. . .

1.Bryson Bryson Bryson, her BFF
2. animals, any and all
3. coloring in the bath, on paper, on her cheeks, anything
4.singing songs and learning new songs with actions
5. family home evening, she adores our game at the end hungry hungry hippos
6. cuddling with mom and watching movies

About a month ago we went to some cheap blabla bertos joint and we got our food and porter and i started eating right away just to have Elizabeth fold her arms in the middle of this restaurant and say,"prayer". It was so sweet to have this little innocent girl as our example that evening. Elizabeth is a sweet girl with a desire to do good. She is strong willed and watch out if you are not on the same page as her but she really is a joy to have in our home.
We celebrated her birthday by going to brysons for the day to play ( thanks jamie for the cake!) and then porter, reed, Elizabeth and I went to Olive Garden for dinner and toys r us after where she picked out a pink broom to take home that day. Happy Birthday Elizabeth girl, we love you!!

Here is a video of her counting 1-10 with one of her favorite books. . .
