You probably don't remember your first celebration, here. I can't believe how little you looked back then. You have grown into such a big girl in a year, and what a sweet girl you've turned into. So many firsts for you over the last year. One year ago you wouldn't touch the mini pool with a 10-foot pole. Now, you proudly hang out in it, the fear is long gone. Many stink eyes were handed out a year ago to family and friends (the ones you gave out to Jill were deserved, remember this). Now you grin at everyone as they welcome you in.
You love your puppies, books, baby and ELMO! You like fruit, and would eat it before the good stuff... what a good girl. You've been on a boat, camping, 4-wheeling all before your 2nd birthday (maybe even before your 1st...). Something tells me you won't find yourself short of memorable moments as you get older.
Sunday, for your celebration, we met at Elm Creek park. You were getting your swim on by the time most of us got there. Letting your daddy pull you in and out of the water.
You may or may not have given me one of those good old stink eyes, when I tried to get pictures of those beautifully painted toenails that laid on some of the pruniest feet I've seen in a long while. I forgive you.
After eating lunch, it was time for you to open your presents. With a little help from mommy after each present, you turned to the person(s) who gave the gift, and thanked them. It was very sweet.
Happy 2nd Birthday Quinndaline! I love you!
