It seems like only yesterday that she was born. One day old and off to surgery. Eight days later, home like a champion.
Before we knew it, she was one!
Now she's two! In all her glory!
She can do it all by herself--or so she thinks!
Whether it's putting on daddy's hats, or feeding the giraffe, she wants no help!
I love it when she exclaims, "I did it!"
No doubt, she's a privileged child. We are lucky we can do fun things together.
One thing hasn't changed. She and her dog and never far apart. If he could fit in the chair, he would be in it. Amazing he hasn't gained weight in the last year, as she insists on sharing everything with him!
She had two parties this year. Both family only.
One in Florida with Papa Bill and Gigi Mary and her cousins, Maggie & Allegra
And one at home in Kohler with her Papa Bob and Gigi Marva and us.
I have so few pictures of the two of us, since I'm the one with the camera.
She hunted eggs with the best of them on Easter Sunday!
Her birthday this year was on Good Friday. Yes, it was a good one! She is our blessing and we are so happy she's TWO!
Happy belated Easter!

My mom has been busy catching me in precarious situations like this one, so has had little time to pursue her blogging. Or knitting.
She says her first job is ME, then Daddy, then cooking, cleaning, volunteering with the Above & Beyond Children's Museum & Sheboygan County Master Gardeners and THEN she gets to fool around with her knitting and blogging. Lord knows she can't do it when I'm around. I'm in to everything right now. And I do mean everything. I'm tall enough to open doors, and small enough to slip in to tight spaces. I'll try to give my mom a little more time, and hopefully she can get back to her blog. I know people miss it--they tell her all the time. I think she misses it, too. Maybe I'll give her a break.

The Real Baby went from baby to toddler over the summer. She runs, plays, slides and now even talks a blue streak. Her vocabulary is way ahead of schedule. Well over 75 words at seventeen months. She continues to amaze and change.
She spent time with her cousins this summer over the Fourth of July.
We also made a trip to Atlanta to visit more cousins in August. She waved at everyone and said "bye-bye" as they exited the plane. She cracks us up.
We've done lots of summer things
We gardened (this was Spring - look how she's grown!)
We ate corn on the cob
We ate watermelon
We drank beer
We drank wine (someone raided the coolers at the neighborhood picnic!)
We played at the pool
We played in the water at home
And played in the fountain with Paddy
We played dress-up (she never saw a purse she didn't like!)
We went to the fair and saw the chickens
And fed the ducks
Then, almost as if on cue, the weather changed and we needed our jackets and long pants.
Then we rode away from Summer on our trusty two-wheelers
Bye-bye Summer. See you next year (please come earlier next time!!)....
