Audrey turns 2!

Jake and I can’t believe Audrey is already 2. Where did the time go? I feel like I was just posting this photo yesterday:

Now she’s a whole year older! She loves to sing the ABC’s, count to 14, read books, eat pan-keys (pancakes), dance and twirl in her princess skirts, paint a-nails (finger and toenails), wear lip-kick (chapstick), try on shoes (she puts on and takes off at least 4 pairs a day), eat nacks (mini marshmallows) and her med-cine (fish oil gummie chews–seriously, she loves them), and play with her cousins. I recently did a parent and me swim class with her and she loved it. She wanted to go “wimming like a fishies” every day. Jake and I are constantly amused by her spunky personality, her constantly bobbing head, and how she ends every sentence with “kay?” (i.e., “Want juice, kay?”, “No night-night, kay?”). We also love that she always says “bless you” when we sneeze, and “thank you” when we give her something. She loves to gives hugs and kisses, and somehow has a way of making you feel like the most amazing person on earth. WE LOVE YOU AUDREY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Your morning hair is super awesome.

This is what we call your “silly face”. You like to whip it out at random times and it always makes me laugh.

We celebrated Audrey’s birthday yesterday with Jake’s family, because it was also our nephew Bridger’s birthday. He turned 1 yesterday! It was fun to celebrate together.

The gleeful princess/party girl with her new dress, stroller and dolly. And today we celebrate once again with my family. Like I said, SPOILED.

P.S. Since nearing 2, I’ve definitely noticed a more “terrible two” streak coming through. Not really sure how to discipline her because guess what? She LOVES time-out! Seriously! When I threaten to put her in time-out she says “okay!” or “yes!”, gets her stool then happily sits or stands in the corner. WHAT TO DO, internet? What to do? I’m in for it. Good thing she’s not naughty very often.

    I can’t believe how grown up she is. She looks like a little lady already! Happy Birthday Audrey!

    Hi Merideth & Jake,
    Audrey is such a cutie!! I absolutely love her hair!! You can do so many fun things with curly hair. Lucky girl. I think the “morning hair” pic was my favorite…however, I loved the one of her standing in front of the door too. She’s just so cute!!
    Happy Birthday Audrey!
