2 Years already? Don't Make Me Cry.

Tomorrow is Lola's BIG #2 Birthday.  I am sitting here in awe at how fast these last couple years have flown by.  I look back on the first days that Lola was born and remember them so vividly.  I am so grateful for this, I normally have a terrible memory, so this is a blessing indeed.  I was reminiscing with my friend at work about having our babies and man does time fly?!

Tonight we are going with the family to Chuck E Cheese so she will actually have fun at her Birthday party, the rest of us are kids at heart so it will be fun for us too.  Hopefully she will enjoy it more this year than the last.  Actually, I think she had fun but she didn't show it.  She totally had her "poker face" on the entire time.   Riding rides... poker face, seeing Chuck in the flesh... poker face, taking pictures in the ID card booth... poker face, going up to the animatronic toys by the stage... pure bliss and lots of baby kicks, she LOVED those.  Too funny!  I hope she will love them again this year.

I plan on making a video of her first 2 years on earth but it may take a while so I wanted to do her Birthday post today since I will be busy playing with her tomorrow and won't have the video to post for a while.

This sweet princess has brought so much joy to our lives since the second she was born.  I have enjoyed EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. that I have spent with this lady.  She has taught us patience, how to enjoy life, how to love deeper, how to be selfless and countless other things.  If you are a parent you understand, if not, you will learn it someday when you have your own.
