Happy Birthday Katelyn !!

Happy 2nd Birthday my dearest Katelyn!! Two years ago today you entered our lives and made our family complete.

This past year has been filled with so many milestones for you. You mastered walking and running. And climbing. You love to climb onto the couch, table, and all of our beds. You moved from the high chair to a booster seat at the dining room table. You use your fork and spoon for every meal too.

You say so many words now too and are speaking in 4 word sentences sometimes. Most of the words only Mommy can understand like when you say " I hurley " you are really saying I'm hungry.

Your favorite shows right now are Dora, Max & Ruby, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Sesame Street. You love Ernie and Elmo.

You absolutely love to play with Danyelle and Gavin. Right now they are your two favorite people. And they love to play with you too. You play right along side of Gavin and zoom cars across the floor and battle him with light sabers.

And right now you are all about playing with your babies. You love to feed your babies and make them go night night. And once your baby is in bed you tell all of us to shhh. You also love to play with your tea party sets too.

And lets not forget how much you are a Daddy's Girl. You love to sit on his lap and share a bowl of popcorn or ice cream with him. You scream with happiness when he gets home from work too. And at nighttime before you go to bed, you climb into bed with Daddy and watch TV. And when I come in you say to me " No Mommy Go Bye ". And then you don't let me in the bed either. Just you and Daddy!

You love to play outside and watch the birds. You also have a love for bugs. You follow them around the ground and try to pick them up or squash them.

This week you are going to be staring pre-school 2 days a week for 3 hours. I know you are going to enjoy it so much!

My sweet princess, I have enjoyed this past year with you so much. You make me smile and laugh every single day. You are already such a strong independent little girl and you make me so happy.

Love you forever,
