Summer is TWO!!!

My poor, poor blog. I’ve missed it so! I have MUCH to catch up on, including Christmas, but I have to blog about Summer’s birthday!!

I can hardly believe she’s already two. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday she was born and other days it feels like an eternity. Either way, the past two years have definitely been an adventure!


She is still a huge fan of busses, so we had a bus birthday party, naturally! All of her best little friends came over and they colored and sang “The Wheels on the Bus” and played like 2 year olds like to do. She even had a bus cake, which I like to think she loved. And she blew out her candle like a champ. Despite only having a 45 minute nap today due to a new afternoon church schedule, she did fairly well throughout the evening and then fell right asleep at bedtime.

Some things about Summer:

Loves to give hugs and kisses, especially to her little sister

Loves to say “hi” to you, usually by name. Multiple times.

Can count to 10, omitting that pesky #9.

Loves to sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. Can sing it very fast and very loud as well.

Is starting to be very independent. “Summer do it!”

Tells me when she is stinky. Hopefully this meaning potty training is in our near future!

Still loves cheese and milk. Also loves pickles (peekles), noodles, French fries, and “treats”. Most anything can be a treat, thankfully…doesn’t have to be sweet.

Talks all the time. I have no idea how many words she can say. It’s a lot.

She is usually pretty good about sharing.

Loves, loves, loves her Dad.

Loves to play with puzzles.

Usually is carrying around a doll or some variety. Actually, usually is carrying one doll under each arm, other toys in her hand and carries her milk around in her mouth. Quite the multi-tasker!

She has recently learned how to push others. We’re working on eliminating this newly acquired skill.

She really is such a sweet girl. She definitely tries my patience sometimes but for the most part is a well-behaved kid. 

Check out her bus cake!


Who’s mooning us??

She is so beautiful! I love her mouth full of teeth (just comparing to her 1 year picture). She sounds so sweet and lovable. Happy Birthday Summer!
