Oh, My Winnie… two year photos

2 Years

Last year, I recapped this girl’s month-to-month, and I loved doing it. I contemplated keeping that trend going, but this year went by so quickly, she’s turning two before I even got my feet on the ground. It’s hard to believe she’ll be two on Monday. This last year was so full for us, and I am tenderhearted at the fact that it’s already over. Our girl grew leaps and bounds this year, surprising all of us with her words and skills. Her favorite things became her Little People and her puzzles – she can play with either of those for hours. She wasn’t a fan of the great outdoors last summer. It could be because she couldn’t walk, or it could be that she was taking a cue from her momma. Either way, we worked hard at changing her heart and here we are, two years old and she LOVES being “ow-side”. She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Micky and the Roadster Racers.  She also loves watching movies like Sing, The Secret Life of Pets, Monsters, Inc., and Zootopia. Our girl is an animal lover, but only in the cartoon or pretend form. We took her to the zoo, and she wasn’t impressed (maybe because none of them were talking?). Another trait she might get from momma.Getting her to smile at my camera is a full-time job. She’s a busy little thing, never sitting still for very long. One of her favorite things to do is “go, go, go,” which means running laps in our house or across the backyard.  I never want to forget her vocabulary at this time. I think it’s my favorite thing about her being two. Some of my favorite words of hers are:
Mickey – “Cow”
Minnie – “Bee”
Momma – “Baba”
Elbow – “Bel-bow”
Cereal – “Cereoleole” Everything about this kid is my favorite (including those curls). We had no idea how generous God could be, but this past year has shown us again and again that we still have no idea, and He will surpass any expectation or measure we create. She is a picture of His love for us, and we are so, so, SO thankful for the gift that is Winnie.

  • When we moved to our old neighborhood almost five years ago, we knew we’d love the house/the location/the proximity to everything amazing (hello, Target 👋🏻). What we didn’t know was how much we would love the people living next door. No longer neighbors, forever our friends. ♥️ So thankful to have spent the last few days with these two, already counting down to seeing them again.

photos: from today, from right before we moved to Ky in June, and from right before we moved out of our house in December 🌟
  • yesterday, her birthday dreams came true: she saw a real-life sloth, which is her absolute favorite animal, and she hasn’t stopped talking about it since 😆❤️ (he’s hard to spot in the photo, he’s napping on the platform above her 😴)

  • Winnie, you are 3. 🎈🎉

Today is our golden girl’s golden birthday. ✨ We love her more than words could say. She is fire and light and nonstop energy. We are overwhelmingly thankful for her. We know that every day is such a treasure with her, and we will never be sad to see her grow up, even if it is happening so fast. She is our greatest gift, and we can’t believe she’s already 3!

  • we had a little “party” for our girl yesterday 🍕🎉 so far, I’ve loved theming her birthday and making her invitation every year 👏🏻 and this year, that’s about all I did - I made an invitation and then didn’t actually plan the party 😬😂 so with minimal, last-minute decorating and a crazy looking pizza dessert (#nailedit 🏆), we celebrated this sweet girl with her favorite food and some of her favorite people by her side. ♥️ (swipe 👉🏻 for some Pinterest-worthy baking inspo 🍕🍪🤪)

also, a side note... Instagram tells me that I should only post at 9pm because that’s when my greatest “engagement” is 🙄 help me prove that statistic wrong with a like/comment/why not both? k, thanks, you’re the best. 😘
