Mylie met Lilla tonight for the first time. She immediately want to touch her and hug her. She told me that she wanted to get in the bed and hold her. Justin and I were not sure about this but Mylie seemed adamant about it. We thought we would give it a try and Mylie was the best big sister. She was very soft and hugged all over Lilla. She even gave her kisses. She was a very proud big sister tonight. Her Mommy and Daddy are very proud of her!

1st real pump knot

Well, I knew it would happen someday. Mylie fell going out our back door. There are two steps down to our patio and I'm not sure if she fell down both or one of them. When I heard her cry her hands and head were on the patio and her feet were still on the last step. Poor thing cried and cried. Now she has a nasty looking knot and a scrape on her cheek. She would not let me put ice or a cold washcloth on it. We settled on some Neosporin Plus Pain.

Happy 2nd Birthday Mylie!

Today is Mylie's second Birthday. We celebrated early with a birthday party last weekend. We had friends and family over to the house. The kids played on the new gym set that Neno and Aunt Lulu bought for Mylie's birthday. We had snacks, pizza, and wonderful cupiecakes made by the one and only Paula (Auntie). Mylie received some really nice presents for her birthday. She really enjoyed seeing everyone and playing outside. Here are some pics from the party.

Today, as long as her fever is not back, Justin and I want to take her to Chuck E. Cheese. This is one of her favorite places to go. We have only been a hand full of times, but every time we pass the mall, she talks about it and wants to go back.

I can't believe that these two years have gone by so fast. It was this morning that my water broke. It was Sunday morning about 9 am and Justin was at work. I called him home and within the hour we were at the hospital. 12 hours of labor later, Mylie was here! That night, Justin was so proud of his little girl. When we let everyone in to see her, he would hold her out so everyone could see her, but no one else held her. No one even asked. They said the look on Justin's face let them know better! He actually didn't even let me hold her again till much later! I would tell him that I haven't gotten to see her much and he would hold her over me so I could see here, but he wouldn't put her down! It was so cute. We are very proud of Mylie and the way she is turning into a sweet little toddler. Of course we have our "2" moments, but she is so smart and can communicate so well. She can speak in full sentences. She loves to sing. Among her favorites right now are Mary had a little lamb, Jesus loves me, Row row row your boat, Pat the Bible, and the Wheels on the bus! She is so adventurous. She will climb the walls if she can find a way. She can open doors, turn a flip, and dress herself. She knows what manners are and we are working on consistently asking for things with a "may I please." She reminds Justin and I to say our prayer at the dinner table. When she get really excited and want to do something, she grabs our face with both hands and looks us right in the eye with these really big eyes and tells us all about her excitement. She calls sweets "candy candy" and it is so cute the way she says it. It is hard to resist. She know all the names of her friends at church in her class and looks forward to going to see them all. We are having so much fun watching her grow everyday. Mylie, we love you beyond words. You are a pure joy. Happy Birthday sweet baby.

This is what you get

when you ask a 23 month old to take off her p.j.s so that you can put her clothes on her. I went out of the room to change over the laundry and heard Mylie saying "Help, Mommy!" I came back into the room, and left again to get my camera. She cracks me up. And, NO, I didn't not ask her to change her own diaper! Ha!

Getting Ready.

We have been so busy lately getting the house and the bedroom ready for Lilla. I am now 35 weeks into my pregnancy. Everything is going well. I have an appointment today and start going every week now. I am super exhausted from chasing a 23 month old. I can't believe that Mylie is almost 2! We have also been busy planing a birthday party! The time really does fly by. I am amazed every day at how much she understands and can communicate. We have been working on manners recently. This morning, she came up to me and said, "May I please have some oatmeal?" I about fell over! Usually when she asks for something, it is a demand "Oatmeal!" and I have to say to her, "how do we ask for something?" Then she will say "please.." or I will prompt her to say it correctly. Mylie also loves to sing. When we are in the car it is one of her favorite things to do. She also will sing herself to sleep many nights.

We have had many play dates in the past few weeks. We are going back to Bounce U tomorrow with some friends. I will try and get some pictures. Last time we went, my camera was on a weird setting and the pics turned out horrible. Play dates are a lifesaver for me. It is nice to get out of the house and enjoy Mylie playing while not having to worry about keeping the house clean. Our favorite places are the Mall soft play, the Nashville Zoo, the playground at the end of our street, Kids Castle, and Mrs. Elizabeth's house.

Hope everyone is having a good week.
