Time has gotten away from me again! With all the fun activities of summer, I haven't posted anything in a long time. But I couldn't go longer without posting about my Natalie's 2nd birthday. Natalie keeps us on our toes and has proven to me that two girls from the same parents can be entirely different. I could focus on a few traits that I must choose to love about Natalie: like the fact that she hates meat and veggies, or that she eats candles, crayons, chalk, spices and other oddities, or that she consistently loves to get into dirty, gross things. But since it is her birthday I will focus on the things that I can't help but love about her. :)
*The adorable gap between her two front teeth (I see braces in her future)
*Her uncontrollable curly, frizzy hair
*Any time I sit down, she's on my lap ready to cuddle
*She is obsessed with brushing her teeth and washing her hands with soap
*I have to spell words like "cookie, candy, cake, brownie, sucker, gum" because Natalie goes insane at the mention of those words!
*Adrianna is her favorite person in the world
*When I am disciplining her and trying to get a point across, she frequently plugs my nose and says, "PEEEEWWWW!"
*When I play the piano, she gets her pink Bible and sings at the top of her lungs
*Her high-pitched voice saying "Hi!" to me as I open her door each morning
*The fact that she's our second child and hasn't gotten nearly the one-on-one attention that her sister did hasn't stopped us from being completely overwhelmed with love for our little girl.
Thank you, God, for such a wonderful gift!!
