Two years ago, God granted us with you, my dear April. My second strong willed child. You can be stubborn, because you are so passionate about your feelings. You're willing to fight for what you want; a trait that tests my patience now, but will serve you well in the future.
You love to help, especially with emptying the dishwasher, and feeding our dog, Tiki. You love to bring people into your world to share your experiences with you.
Your best friend is your big sister, Natalie, who you've already learned so much from. The two of you genuinely enjoy the time you spend together, and you love to make each other laugh. Come to think of it, you like to make everyone laugh.
Happy second birthday, my sweet baby girl. I'm looking forward to many more adventures with you. Love, Mom.
So, how did our little girl spend her 2nd birthday? Well, we started our afternoon with a light snack, and then we went for a walk with the dog.
We then decided to take the birthday girl to Target, to let her choose one toy of her own as a gift. Her choice? A small, pink bucket. Hey, the heart wants what it wants, right?
Afterwards, we picked her sister up from the bus stop, and went home to celebrate with family, friends, and delicious homemade cake. But not without a quick nap first.
It was a great day filled with fun, family, and lots of laughs. But I think it's safe to say the cake was her favorite part. Happy birthday my love, and here's to another fun-filled year!
