Happy Birthday, sweet one
2 years ago I was wishing I'd never signed up for the whole "labor & delivery" thing.

1 year, 11 months ago, I was drowning in exhaustion, new mom insecurities, and lots and lots of pink clothes.

1 year, 10 months ago, I was delighting in sweet baby smiles.

1 year, 6 months ago I was discovering what it was to be pregnant, and have a crawling baby.

1 year, 3 months ago I watched her bang around on her new piano at Christmas.

1 year, 2 months ago she started walking.

1 year ago, I watched my baby girl eat her first birthday cake.

11 months ago I cried when she left to stay the night at my Grams'.

I saw her two days later, when she met her brother for the first time.

10 months ago I watched her kiss her baby brother a bazillion times a day.

5 months ago she trick or treated in her pink fairy costume.

3 months ago she decided to start picking out her own clothes to wear every day.

Today, she turned two. And we really, honestly, truly, can't imagine our life without this

spunky, sassy, adorable
Emerson.

Happy Birthday to your sweet little girl! You made me teary too! Our 2 little ones are close in age also and he turns 2 next month. I am going to have to do a list like that for him. I got so sentimental last year when he turned 1.

Make it a great day!
