lyla is two!

our little lyla bug turned two this sunday. two. TWO! i’m not sure who gave her permission to have a birthday, but it most certainly wasn’t me. 1web on saturday we celebrated lyla, her baby cousin, auntie, uncle and gigi. they all have birthdays within a week! we had the yummiest brunch and the best time hanging out with our family.

on sunday we went out for brunch after church with my parents. the girls were pretty stoked about getting bacon two days in row.

8web we came home for naps and the little birthday girl woke up with a really bad flu. it was soooooooooo sad to see her like that, especially on her special day. i tried to coax her into opening her gifts, but she wasn’t too into it. 


she just wanted to be held. so we spent the rest of the night (and the next day too) snuggling in a way that she would only allow while on her deathbed. it was bittersweet.

then adalaide and i got sick too. and that was just plain bitter.

happy birthday, to the most squeezable little two-year- old in all the land! we love you and all your crazy ways!

  1. I cannot believe she is two! I don’t’ know what is more squeezable, her cheeks or her lil peanut body. She is so full of life and energy, tiring at times I am sure but pure joy always. it is exhausting watching her keep up with her big sisters, mighty fine job she does at that! I love that she is her own person and how she flies into a room, making it hers! what a pip! you must do a post with a video of the introduction and performance shenanigans!

  2. I’m going to cry. Our baby is 2!!! She brings so much life to the family! How blessed we are!!! Now that she’s catching up to her sisters- it’s quite amazing to watch them interact together. Lyla is one of a kind!! What a joy. She makes us all laugh and is quite entertaining. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with this next year!
