Are all the years going to fly by like this? If so, I'd like to kindly ask God to press pause so I can soak up this time a little more. I need to soak up these baby cheeks, the sweet kisses and little words that no one understands except me. I'd gladly fast forward through all the crazy temper tantrums but for the most part, I'd like to freeze and keep life that way it is now. Our little blond haired blue eyed baby doll is blossoming before our eyes with a personality that has us rolling of the floor with laughter (..most days!)
The birthday girl was greeted in the morning by momma singing "happy birthday" to her. So glad no one else was around to hear me sing to her at 6:30am! We got dressed and met Mimi and Papa for breakfast for "chip chip panpates" as Kate requested.
We went to Mimi and Papas house after where Kate found her big birthday present..
Her first car! Watch out world!
After that excitement I took my girl on a date to the nail salon to get her first mani/pedi.
The girls left with pink fingers and toes topped off with little flowers..
Saturday was party day! Or as Kate refers to it as her "happy day!" We had a mellow and intimate backyard lunch with our family and close friends. It was a perfect fall day to celebrate our precious girl!

Party girls with their happy hats!
it was way past nap time...
I know the years are going to continue to fly by and one day I'm going to have to stop crying the night before her birthday. People keep telling me that it only gets better, and I believe them. It is amazing watching her grow into a little girl. It is not easy being a parent but watching her learn and grow in the way that we are teaching her is the most rewarding thing ever! Two years down and Lord willing, the rest of my life to go.
You will probably never know the depth of our love for you, Kate. I pray that one day you too get to experience this kind of love so you can get a glimpse of the love dada and I have for you.
You are an amazing girl & I praise Jesus for sending you to us to take care of & raise.
It is a gift that nothing will ever compare to.
Happy 2nd birthday precious girl.
You are SO loved!
