Lily Turns 2!!!

Lily is TWO today. And wow, is she the spunkiest thing we've ever met!
People always told us boys and girls were different...and I'm sure they are. But Lily is just as active, ornery and loud as Oliver! Here are few differences we've noticed:

*Lily LOVES baby dolls

*Lily loves to look at the 'people' pages in books (as opposed to the trucks)

*Lily has slightly longer hair

*We dress Lily much cuter.

*Already, I fear for the day she turns 13.

Seriously, though, she is such a sweet gift.
I hope I always remember:

*The way she asks, "Wuh-eye??" (why?)
*How she grabs my hand and says, "Tum, mommy!" (Come, Mommy!)

*The way she cuddles when she first wakes up

*The sound of her calling "Ah-bee!" (Ollie!) while
she and Oliver are supposed to be going to sleep.

*The way she scrunches up her eyes to look mad. And she's added stomping, too.

*The fact that she yells, "No fair!" when she doesn't like something
*How she often replies, "No!" to Ollie's pleas for forgiveness

*That she and Ollie love to dance to music...while dressed up in costumes

*The sweet way she runs to Daddy when he comes home
*How she pats my back when I'm holding her, as if SHE'S comforting ME.
Lily--you are SO special to us!!!
Happy 2nd Birthday!

Ahh, I thought of her many times yesterday! Happy Birthday Lily!!! The headband is adorable, and I laughed at all your memories of her - love them! I also laugh thinking about how funny and "different" (good different, not bad!)our 2nd children are! They are definitely creating their own unique identities - princess dresses, makeup, stubbornnes, stomping and all!
