I honestly can't believe that its been two years since we brought Madeline home from the hospital. Where in the world did the time go? I remember about a year ago, I was in the grocery store and a man could tell I was a little frustrated with the girls. Madeline was in the basket screaming and Molly was hanging on the side begging for candy. This man said "The days seem to go on for years and the years will seem like minutes." That has stuck in my head and I am reminded that time really does fly by and especially the older I get! UGH!
So, we embark on the Two's! We actually started around 20 months. The "cute" little fits are funny at times (just because she is so darn cute!) but they are getting out of hand. Its hard to discipline a two year old so if anyone has any tips to share, please do!
On Thursday (her actual birthday), we had plans to go camping. At the last minutes, the plans changed, so we grilled steaks and Molly made Madeline a homemade strawberry birthday cake. We had presents, cake and ice cream with our family - it was a sweet time. She LOVED her cake! Today, we are having her little friends over for a Sesame Street Birthday! She is excited and we have transformed the backyard into a child's version of Sesame Street with Big Bird Fishing Adventure, Oscar the Grouch Trash Can Toss, and Pin the Nose on Elmo! It should be a fun day and I'll post pictures after the party!
Blessings to you all!!!
Becca, Craig, Molly and Madeline
