The Bash


I can't believe my baby is two. She is very smart and we are very proud of her!
At 2 years old Ayla...


...is 27.6 lbs almost 34 in tall
...has a new sister she loves very much

...is not very interested in potty training, only on 'her' time
...sleeps in a big girl bed
...has a huge vocabulary, connects up to 5 word sentences

...very girly- loves bows, shoes, princesses
...is very polite. Says "thank you, Mommy" often. Apologizes on own when appropriate
...fave foods: pasta, bread, fruit snacks, tomatoes, pickles, pizza
...loves to be outside, coloring books, dolls, the park, playgroup friends
...has lots of good friends, I think Meredith B is currently her BFF (ha)
...swings her hips when she runs


Ayla is a very special girl. So special all THIS was for her...

the tables


the food

the pinata


the cake...
the cake...
THE cake.

Without all of this it would not have been the same. As I sit here, both of my girls napping and Daddy too. I realize how blessed we are! God is so faithful & provides. Our girls are beautiful, happy & healthy. Jeff and I love and understand each other. We have fantastic family & friends.
All thanks to our Heavenly Father.


(By the way... Ayla's fabulous bow was made by our friend Tera- It is amazing! You all should be placing your orders now... :)

Looks like Ayla had a fun birthday! Time flies by these days, doesn't it?! As for the Zumba DVDs, I picked them up from the library. They are 2008 edition I believe, so they must have gotten it from somewhere. I'll look in to it....it's really fun, though. I wish we lived closer so we could team up. I need the support. I AM NOT A DANCER!

It seems like I was just commenting on one of your posts a few hours ago. Wait.......I was!! Hehe, you have too much time on your hands. Come to my house, pleeeaase! :) Oh and I cracked up when I read your comment. I had TOTALLY forgotten about that. I wish I had pics of it, then I could devote a whole post to "Dusty the hair dresser" :) Tell Ayla we said Happy Birthday. You guys will have to join us swimming sometime this summer.

Everything looked adorable! The pinata was too cute! (We did a teapot pinata for Braylee's 2nd bday!) So glad the bow matched...she looked adorable!!

I loved the butterfly cupcakes, such a smart idea! She's just so adorable, I can't believe she's two years old already. The bow too was adorable. I have to admit, I'm starting to kinda of get into the whole bow thing. I wasn't sure if I would or not, but they are so darn cute! Missed seeing your little one this morning at church, I saw Jeff's dad holding the carseat....no baby though! haha. Have a great week!
