It was Izzy's 2nd birthday yesterday...hard to believe that it's already been 2 years! And to see how she's grown into this amazing little person has been such an amazing journey for me as a first-time mamma.
Happy Birthday, lovebug! I love you more than words can say I never knew that I had the capacity for such all-encompassing, unconditional love. Even on the WORST days (and trust me, little lady, there've been a few ;) I still feel lucky to have you in my life. We received a WONDERFUL book today from my friend Sarah called "Someday", and it made me a bit teary as I can already see how fast the time is flying. We'll be reading this book a lot, kiddo! I'm so afraid that I won't remember the little things that I treasure now, so I'm trying to record as much video and blog as much as possible. This is my journal to you...
And now on to the birthday girl!
She was in a VERY good mood this morning! Guess that's what happens when she gets to watch Dora :)
We opened a few presents. Here she is watching Pappa open the plastic around her new sunglasses.
And being super-cool

ARGH!!!! She's a fingernail biter!!!!!!!!
slowly opening...while Murphy looks completely bored.
hmmm..what's in the box?
She's already taking very good care of her new baby.
How cute is this. It's an outfit that Joacim's parents got for her (and it IS the right size, according to the tag!) but you can see she's got a few inches to grow before it fits :)
After presents, we went outside to plant some flowers
and then came back in for some super-yummy cupcakes from a local bakery called Sunshine Bakery. They were delicious (and surprisingly enough, the strawberry cupcake with the strawberry icing was my favorite...Izzy didn't seem to be partial to a particular flavor..she just loves CAKE!)
It was a really, really great day that we all spent together. I wish every day could be like this with her :)
