My 2 Year Old

I can't believe my little girl is 2! We went today to the dr. for her 2 year well visit. She is perfect! She is 34.5 inches (almost 3 feet) which puts her in the 75th percentile for height and she weighs 27.2 lbs. putting her in the 55th percentile. She is a growing girl with a big appetite!
We were in Texas for a week and flew home the day before her birthday (to spare the expense of having to buy her her own plane ticket) and so we decided to do just a family birthday, with the 4 of us. I had no time to plan or prepare anything and it was still a lot of fun.

Autumn got a lot of great gifts! Drews parents got Autumn a Disney Princess Table and Chairs Set, my parents got Autumn a Disney Princess Tea Set, Drews sister got her a Disney Princess dress, Drew and I got her Disney Princess crayons, A Little Mermaid board book, an Ariel dry erase board, an Ariel notepad, Ariel pajamas, 1 dress, 5 shirts, and Winnie The Pooh board books. Autumn loves the Princesses, especially Ariel.

I made a cake early Sunday morning (Weston is still adjusting to the time change) and had me up at 5:30 a.m. so I decided to make good use of the time and made the cake. It was a lot of fun. There are no pictures of Autumn eating the cake, she didn't want any. For dinner we had her favorite- hot dogs and french fries. It was nice to celebrate with just us, Drews sister stopped by later to give Autumn a gift and it was really nice to see her and have her celebrate for a minute with us.
Here is Weston watching me make the cake:
The table was all set so after church we could sit down and celebrate.Autumn fell asleep in the car on the way home from church- here is Drew and Weston ready to party:When Autumn woke up we had dinner:Time for presents! She loves the table!She loves the tea set too! I can forsee Autumn and Weston having many tea parties.The bag of clothes. Every time she pulled out an item she would look at it and say, "OH TOOT!" Which is, "Oh cute," in Autumn talk. It was hilarious. We wish we had pulled out our video camera for that.Just seeing Ariel makes her happy. This is the dry erase board:As soon as she pulled out the book she had to read it. I knew she would love it!Her pretty Ariel pajamas:Then once the notepad and crayons were pulled out she had to doodle. She is one busy girl:Weston sat next to us, and enjoyed the festivities.Her Pooh board books, another big hit!She immediately stops everything and reads them:Autumn couldn't sit still long enough for me to get a picture of her with all her stuff:Then Autumns aunt came by with a Princess dress.CAKE TIME!Drew eating cake:Drews sister eating the deliciousness:Autumn giving her Aunt a kiss before she left.

She got a lot of presents for not even having a party. I can't believe you have a little girl who loves Princesses.
