2 Years

2 years ago today, me and Avery.
One of the best days of my life.

Today, me and Avery.
Oh my gosh I love this girl!

Still pretty clueless about the whole birthday thing, but repeated us all day long
"Avery's birthday"
"happy birthday"
"I two"
and even attempted to sing the Happy Birthday song.

Loved her party, just the family.
Here's an action shot:

Avery's favorite things were:
some new books

A doll

Her own purse full of goodies (now maybe she'll stay out of mine - but probably not)

A baby and a stroller

A shopping cart full of groceries

And a giant. stuffed. dog. Thank you Noah.

We had cake and ice cream.
Avery was so excited when we sang to her : )

Avery you are everyone's little sweetheart. You make me crazy but you also fill my heart with happiness. I cried as I tucked you into bed tonight. It's ok to keep growing up, I just don't want to forget - your sweet little faces, your funny little laugh, the cute way that you talk. Your arms around my neck and your breath on my check when I put you to bed at night.
Happy Birthday baby girl - I love you forever.

Happy Birthday, Avery!
I love just-family birthday parties...they are the best, in my opinion. We did the same for Madden's 2nd birthday. Can't wait to see your kids in a few more weeks...

Happy Birthday Avery! Mike and I love being with you and everyone at the gym loves you too! You're just soooooo stinkin' cute (and having great parents helps too).

What a great Birthday party!!! Avery looks so cute - amazing how I can remember her birth day so well - it doesn't seem that long ago. She truly is a little sweetheart :)
