My baby went from this...

to this...

to just two years!

How can it be? Those 2 years flew!

Ashley's birthday was on April 3rd. She woke up to balloons and streamers decorating the kitchen. Her day continued with a fun Easter egg hunt at a friend's house,

a Hi-5 cake (this is my lifesaver show when I have had enough of the whining and crying, Katelyn also loves this show and had a hi-5 cake on her 2nd b-day too),

a couple of presents with the crawling, talking baby being her favorite,
and then for dinner we headed out for McDonald's to get her favorite fries! :)
Here are some things about Ashley at 2 years old:
  • talks really well
  • loves to sing songs
  • loves her baby dolls and loves real babies
  • cries HARD when she doesn't get what she wants
  • the whiniest(is that a word?) 2 year old
  • loves to eat snacks all day
  • tries really hard to be like the big kids
  • loves gum
  • still a big time mama's girl
  • says "I hold you" when she wants me to hold her (I hear this all day long :) )
  • likes to do things herself...put on her shoes, take off her clothes, pour her cereal, brush her teeth, get a drink of water, etc. She usually likes to do these things by herself when I need her to hurry, but when I have the time to let her try it she doesn't want to do it.
  • we think she is pretty cute and that is what helps us get through the whining and crying:)
  • she would swing outside all day if someone was willing to stand outside and listen to her say "higher" over and over again while pushing her higher and higher
  • she has an opinion about what she wears, but mommy's choice in clothes still wins at this point
  • she loves to read stories
We love our Ashley!!!

"The princess knows who's boss, and it's not the king and queen."
(There could not be a truer statement when it comes to Ashley).
We love this girl and all her spunk!
