Happy Birthday Kaylee

Happy 2nd Birthday Kaylee Elizabeth

I sit here pondering the words to write.  Your second year has come way to fast.  I often asked for time to slow down so I can enjoy you this small for a little while longer, but time hasn't gotten back to me!

You have grown into a very smart & loving 2 year old.  I can sit here today and smile on all of your big girl accomplishments and fun memories we have together.  Your growing up into a beautiful little girl.  You went from being my baby to a toddler and now are such a big girl.  But I don't care how big you get cause you'll always be my little girl.

I am thankful daddy has given me the opportunity to be able to stay home with you cause I wouldn't want to miss a second with you.  It seems like every time I blink my eye you learn something new.  Like the other day when I poured you some fruit snacks into your bowl and you said "Holy cow mama yummy fruit snacks!"  I am so proud of the little girl you are becoming.

You are sweet, sassy, loving, dramatic, independent, outside loving, overly sensitive & 100% a daddy's girl!

But the best day has been when you walked up to me gave me a hug & kiss and then said "lub lub mama"  Hearing those words just melted my heart.

You still take a 3 hour nap each day & mommy thanks you so much for that!  You love going to Grandma & Grandpas on Mondays to play with them, the chicks, throw Jessie the ball and do your marching around on your path!

You've got quite the vocabulary and it's growing every day.  But the new saying that you say that makes me laugh every time is when your in the other room and I don't know what your doing I ask you Kaylee what the heck are you doing and you coming running in fists closed like your going to punch someone and you yell "what the heck a doing" .  I'm laughing while typing it.

You are learning so quickly like the other day when you picked up the letter D and said "mama D for Doug"  I was super impressed!  You are such a smart little girl.  I cant believe how quick you learn things.

Shapes that you know: CIRCLE, OVAL, STAR, HEART, KITE (DIAMOND)
Colors that you know: WHITE, GREEN, PINK, RED
You know sounds to a lot of animals and are even trying to teach sissy what the animals say

Your are such a sweet big sister.  You love being around Keira and I cant wait to watch you guys become best friends.  You want to help with everything when it comes to sissy.  You like to help feed her, change her diaper and give her her pacifier when she cries.  When you talk to her it put the BIGGEST smile on her face!

Weight: 26lbs
Height: 35"
Diaper Size: 4
Clothes: 2T
Shoe: 6
Teeth: all (all 4 of your 2 year molars are coming in at one time)

Since 4 weeks old you have been the best sleeper and still are.  We did have a month when you were about 15 months when you didn't sleep good and you would wake up multiple time a night and mommy though she was going to lose her mind.  But after a month you were back to sleep like a champ!  You go to bed at 8:30 each night and wake up at 8am each morning.  You drink your milk from your sip cup and give your kisses to everyone and daddy takes you up to bed and you put yourself to sleep.  You also put yourself to sleep at nap time as well, which has been awesome.  You've been in your big girl bed since December and you've done so good with adjusting.  I think you liked it a lot better than your crib!

Watching you grow & change over the past 2 years have been the best. 

You love to play puzzles, read your books, play with your babies, dance, sing, talk back (LOL), airplanes (you can spot them so quick), having your toes painted & being outside!

You HATE to have your hair washed when it's bath time!  But we're trying something new and having you dump the water on your head and it seems to be working.  But other than that you LOVE your baths.

I thank god everyday for choosing me to be your mommy.
These last 2 years have been filled with happiness, stress & joy.

Happy Birthday sweet girl
