Number 2!

Well this was the big number 2. My little Chloe turned 2 yesterday. But Friday night Melanie was babysitting Chloe while we went to a Christmas party. When we picked Chloe up, Mel said that she put herself to sleep in Matthews big boy bed all by herself. So Michael and I decided that maybe it was time to convert her crib to a big girl bed. That was the first thing we did on the big day. Don't get me started on trying to find the right screw in this entire town to convert the bed. So here is Chloe sleeping in the bed for the first time.
Then Melanie came over to set up THE CAKE. Isn't it awesome? She did such a good job. Everyone loved it, and it was the hit of the night. That is my cutest niece Allison smiling so big by the cake.
Here is the birthday girl. She is holding a Barbie, wearing new high heels, glasses, jewelry, and fairy dress. She was pretty ornery opening presents, because we kept taking away the toys and trying to get her to open new ones. But after we let her play with her new toys, she was a lot happier. Then she finished off the night in her big girl bed. When did my daughter turn two? She is such a big girl.

That sister of yours sounds pretty awesome!! :) It sounds weird to say Chloe is now 2. That means Matthew is right behind her. That's absolutely crazy!! Where has the time gone??

Chloe is pretty darn cute, we love watching her.

Time really flies when it comes to your kids. It seems like they are so little for so long, then all of a sudden they are grown up and having kids of their own. Enjoy every happy, sad, crying, laughing, fit throwing, temper tantrum, beautiful moment...it only last for such a short time!!

When you first read your title "number 2" it sounds like your announcing your pregnancy.

Mandy said...

Yes!!! Thank you Mel for finally saying that. I totally thought it was a pregnancy announcement at first too!! but I kept my mouth shut in order to keep the peace. Leave it to the big sister to say it!!! ;)
