Kyla's Official Birthday Post

Dear Kyla,

I still cannot believe you are two!  I am so used to using months to describe your age and I don't have to do that anymore.  These last two years have gone so fast!  I think part of that is because we added your baby brother to our family during that time.  But regardless, they have by far been the best two years of my life.

Thank you for bringing so much love and laughter into my life.  You are so silly and we are always laughing together.  You have quite the personality.  Some people think you will be an actress with all of your facial expressions and how you can bring the drama just like that!

You go through stages where you prefer me over Daddy, but for the most part, you are so happy with attention from either one of us.  You love Daddy giving you baths because he lets you have extra time to play and he lets you splash.  Isn't he the best?

I can't wait to see how much you grow and learn in the next year.  It's amazing to look back at you when you turned one.  You are definitely growing into a beautiful little girl.  I could go on and on about how much I love you, but I also tell you this about 45 times a day.  I can't wait for the day that you say "love you" back to me.  Thank you for being so awesome.  Thank you for still wanting to snuggle with me.  Thank you for being YOU!

I love you with all my heart sweet girl!

Love, Mommy

~You are very into wearing jewelry lately.
~You love to jump and have Mom and Dad get really excited for you.
~You love chapstick and get mad when I take it from you.
~You love to hold me so tight around my neck, which sometimes is a little too tight.
~When it's time for your nap, you refuse to let go of me.
~You love to sit by Kase's window and read your books.

~Looking at yourself in my phone camera and making silly videos.

Just another typical Saturday night at our house :)
Seriously Kyla, I don't know what I ever did without you in my life.  I don't know what I did to get so lucky, but I am thankful every single day that I get to be your Mommy.  I love you so much!
