Happy Birthday Baby

Today our baby is 2 years old! This time, exactly two years ago the ptossin was just starting to kick in and I was beginning to get a little uncomfortable. And at 12:57pm, we excitedly welcomed Isabelle into our little family.

Yesterday, she was exceedingly agreeable. I can only hope that this means her “terrible two’s” will be terrific…hmmmm. We had such a great night hanging out and Isabelle was chatty and fun. Not one melt down! As I laid down with her last night when I put her to bed, I couldn’t help but be amazed at how one little person can change your life so much. It’s certainly more work than anything I have ever done in my life, and more worth it than anything I have ever done. My favorite sight in the world is her sparkling brown eyes, and my favorite sound is her saying, “You coming, Mama?” and her giggling when her Daddy tickles her, and my favorite smell, is predictably, Isabelle after her nightly bath. Children are certainly God’s way of blessing us. Happy Birthday Baby!

Happy Birthday!

I can't believe she is already two. I hope it's a great year, full of lots of new adventures.

(How fun... you get to watch the Olympic opening ceremonies for your birthday entertainment. The little girl flying through the air reminded me of you!)

The video with her opening her present from Aunt Becky is soooo cute. Give my baby girl, a big Oma kiss and hug and tell her I love her and wish her a Happy Birthday. Love you all, Oma

I'm so glad she had a good day on her birthday. I'm so glad that I can claim her as a "grandchild"; she certainly makes my life a little brigher. I am blessed by your family. Love to all 3 (4) of you.
