birthday party...catherine is 2!!!

hey sweet princess=) here are some pictures and videos from your elmo birthday party at gigi and granddaddy's house. we had lots of fun! you weren't so sure at first about everybody singing happy birthday to you...you got so scared!! but you got over it quickly and realized the cake was worth it and the icing was delicious!!!!! before i show you the pictures and videos, i wanted to tell you a few of my favorite things you're doing lately:

~when you see pictures of penguins, you say "pennies"
~you found our old baby einstein videos and you call them "baby fine-fine"
~we were looking at some pictures of our cousin's sweet new girlfriend...when we got to one looking at her from behind while she was looking out at the ocean (in a bathing suit) you said "HINEY!" and got really excited=)
~we finally gave in and bought you your own little potty. you sit on it and grunt and push and it's hilarious. you tee-tee in it once or twice a day and are very proud of yourself! we are proud of you too!
~pillow is "pedal" and yellow is "yadow"
~you know the game "pee-pie" kinda like peek-a-boo? when we play it and you say "POO-PIE!" ~you call diapers "boppers" and i can't get enough of it. you always tell me who's on your diaper-it used to be elmo and you got upset when we started buying mickey mouse diapers instead...but you're on board now and tell me "MEE-MOUSE!" when i tell you it's time to change your diaper=)

there's the update for now=) you were a sweet sweet girl at your party-my grandmother kept saying she didn't know another 2 year old who was so patient opening presents one by one and not playing with them until the end. i think she's biased, but i am too, so i'll take it=)

i love you my sweet 2 year old girl=) enjoy your pictures!

Just for the fun of it I went back and read your posts from 2 years ago.

WOW.

I remember waiting for her to be born and how scary. And so weird since I don't even "know" you... but GOSH. 2 years later look at that girl.

WOW!

Happy Birthday, sweet Catherine! I wish we could have been around to celebrate your 2nd, but am glad you have such a great big family to party with! We miss you all and wish you a wonderful year with your very own "terrible two"! (That's crap, by the way, ICG gets cooler everyday!)
