We started Elly’s birthday celebration by picking her up and bringing her to our beach front anniversary hotel for breakfast since we had spent the previous night there. It was a buffet ya’ll, something our good eater along with her parents can appreciate. Elly spent time playing at the beach and hotel pool then after nap we took her out for her favorite (soy) cheese pizza. After dinner she opened a few more presents and had more cake. She has come to love cake almost as much as I do. Daddy read her a sweet birthday bedtime story to finish up our great day of celebrating.
Here are some of our thoughts to Elly as she turned 2….
Happy 2nd birthday little surfer girl! This past year has been another one filled with learning and amazement. You’ve changed from a baby into a toddler right before our eyes!
Some of your greatest milestones have been learning to walk and talk. And boy, are you a talker! We feel so lucky that you are able to communicate with us as well as you can. You’ve learned lots of words, phrases and sentences and now you’re our little parrot, repeating pretty much everything you hear. You certainly aren’t afraid to voice your opinions and feelings!
You’re also a little girl with a big personality. You make us laugh all the time with the things you say and do. You love music, dancing-which consists mostly of spinning, animals, playing peek-a-boo, going to the beach, swimming, and going on walks to name a few things. You continue to be our good eater, but have gotten pickier, especially when it comes to veggies.
We have to beg you for cuddles, hugs and kisses all day long because you are on the go! But at night, when we put you in your crib, you’re the one who asks us for a hug and kiss, which makes us just melt! You also enjoy reading books so we try to sneak in some cuddle time with you then too.
You bring an abundance of joy into our lives and we feel very blessed to have you as our daughter. We are excited to continue to help you learn and grow during the upcoming year and can’t wait to see you as a big sister come October. We love you beautiful, sweet, smart, Elly Grace.
