The light of my life turned two this week. She is the most special person I’ve ever known and the love that I feel for her is inexplicable. Everyday with her is a gift and I’m so thankful to be her Mom. At two, some of her favorite things to do are singing B-I-N-G-O, painting and drawing, playing with her toy animal collection and playing chase around the house. Her cutest sayings right now are “Oh no!” “Play with me?” “Watch a show a minute?” “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14…” “Put on socks and shoes?” followed by “Outside?” “I don’t like it” and “That’s my favorite!”

For her birthday, I put together a simple Madeline themed party (I of course enlisted the help of my friend, Rachel, to bake since I am no bakestress) and found an adorable pillow-case dress on Etsy to go with! Here are a few of my favorite two-year portraits and details from her party:
