Happy Birthday Evie Pie!

Well our little girl is 2! I can't even believe it! Since we knew that Grandma and Grandpa were going to be here just a couple days after her birthday we decided to wait to throw her a party till they got here so these pictures are from our little family birthday party. We did have some of Evie best friends in the world come over for pizza and cake since they were going to be out of town for her party. She was so glad they could make it. It was a very low key day for her. Since her little sister was born just 2 days earlier mom couldn't do a whole lot but Dad took her to the pool and after her nap we had our little party. She was so happy that day. She kept saying to people, "it's my birthday" and when her friends came over she was telling them that we were going to eat "birthday pizza and birthday cake". She was really into it. Man we love this little girl!

 Blowing out the candle! She kept asking to do it again. So funny!!
 Her yummy cake. It was fun to make
what a funny little girl. Notice the size of her piece of cake. She ate just about all of it! haha

Things we love about our 2 year old Evie
- she dances like a wild woman. As soon as she hears a song there is no stopping her
-LOVES Elmo and Mickey Mouse
-still calls her milk "nilk"
-the worlds best big sister
-has to have a hair bow in her hair at all times. 
-she recently has started to think bugs are gross. She will see a bug, find a towel and stand there so close to picking up the bug just screaming cause she is afraid to grab it. But she tries so hard to be brave enough to grab it.
-loves the pool!!!
-she is a little fish. I can't believe how well she can swim!
-loves babies. Real babies and baby dolls
-can work an iphone as well as I can
-LOVES nursery. Talks about it all week

-still gulps so loud when she is drinking
-loves to play with her friends
-will search through all her diapers which have mickey mouse on them till she finds one that has both mickey and minnie mouse. She only wants to wear the ones with minnie and that is like 1 in 4.
-she loves to race daddy around the kitchen and living room
 -thinks popsicles are all she needs for lunch
