Happy Birthday Alexa!

Today my little girl turns two. I can hardly believe it. These 2 years have literally flown by. I can't imagine not having her always this little. But I know I can't make her stay a baby forever. And I know she isn't really a baby anymore. But she's my baby. Every day she gets smarter and smarter. Today she told Eddie, "Don't you do dat. Don't you evuh run away fum me again, baby." I'm pretty sure she heard this from Monster's Inc. This is an exact quote from the movie. Minus the word baby. I can't believe how well she talks. I can't believe how well the kids play together. Sometimes.

This little girl has a strong personality. My husband just gave me one word to sum her up, "firecracker." She's a momma's girl, and she loves to play with trains and cars just as much as her baby dolls. She fights with her brother over any random toy he picks up as the toy of the moment and vice versa. If she feels that Eddie has done something wrong, she points her finger at him and sternly commands him, "NO. NO. DON'T DO DAT!" She's also very sweet and loving. She needs lots of hugs and kisses. But she'd rather get them all from mommy. I must add too that she likes shoes. Thanks to her nana (and her mommy, with the shoe fetish) the girl has quite a few pair. {{thinking of that, I owe a friend a picture of her shoe closet, lol!}} Miss Alexa actually goes into her closet daily and picks out a pair that she wants to wear. What can I say? That's my girl!

So yesterday, in preparation for today, I took out the camera and snapped about 100 pictures. Honestly, I couldn't get the child to sit still. Mommy had plans of capturing a sweet smile, a with her face looking at the camera, all while holding up a number 2 that I had cut out of cardboard. Alexa had other ideas. Do you want to know who won?

Yup. She did. But I bet you probably guessed that. Here are a few more of the pics I took.

So now, as of today, I am mommy to a two year old, and a three year old. Sounds a little crazy huh? Even to me.

Happy Birthday sweet girl!! Mommy loves you!

Happy Birthday (a day late!)

I think the pics turned out great, by the way--you totally captured her!

And I hope her finger is doing better, poor thing! And poor momma, too. I know that had to break your heart.
