She's 2!

Our baby girl turned TWO on Thursday, and we celebrated on Saturday with her friends.  We had a fabulous Mickey party complete with the best bounce house ever, all of Claire's favorite foods, and of course, cupcakes!

I can't believe that in two short years, our beautiful baby has grown in to such an amazing little girl!  She is wild and hilarious like her daddy and sweet like her mommy, the best of both worlds. :)

Daddy's Girl

Claire is absolutely loving her daddy these days, and it completely melts my heart.  She has always been more of a momma's girl, but the past month or so she just adores him.  She cries when he leaves with out her, runs to him when he gets home and her newest favorite thing is to sit down in the morning and share a bowl of cereal with him.  So sweet.  They are out running some errands right now, and she was so excited to go.  She just looks and me and waves and says, "Bye, mama! Love you!"  When he leaves with out her? Big alligator tears and my sweet girl standing at the door crying for her dada.  It breaks my heart and makes me completely dread the next time we have to say good bye to him, because her heart is going to be just as broken as mine.  Here are my two favorite pictures of them from the past couple weeks.

Bud was really hesitant when we found out Claire was a girl, and now being a Daddy to a girl completely fits him.  We even had friends comment that they were surprised he didn't want a girl with how wonderful he is with her.  They are two peas in a pod, and make each other giggle like no one else can.  I am so thankful for my little family!

Happy Birthday, Rah Rah!

Today is my favorite sister and Claire's favorite aunt's birthday!  Claire absolutely adores her Rah Rah, as do I.  I am so thankful and blessed to have such a wonderful big sister.  

  From matching Christmas sweaters to matching baby bumps!
It is so fun to me that we both had our sweet baby girls, and now we are getting ready to have baby boys!  Some day we WILL live close to each other so that our kids can be wonderful friends.  

We LOVE you, Sarah!  Happy Birthday!!

Finally!   I feel like I am a whole new person this week.  Apparently it took half the pregnancy, but oh well.  My house has been clean for a whole week, little dude's room is making some progress, Claire's room has gotten a lot of attention and our room is clean.  That's a lot, people.  I am SO thankful to be feeling like myself again!  Our little guy doesn't feel so little, and makes his presence known A LOT.

The next few months are going to fly--we are packed for October, November is very busy and then Christmas in seems like it will be January before we know it.  So, we are trying to get as much done now as we can so we are ready for him if he decides to come early.  (Not holding my breath on that one, but better safe than sorry.)
