Aniston is 2!

These past two years have flown by! It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in the hospital with just Aniston and I praying that she wouldn't grow up too fast. It didn't work.
I am so grateful to her in my life. She came to me at a time I needed something happy to look forward to every morning.

Becky, Claire, Lauren, Weston and I took Aniston to the park for her birthday lunch. Aniston is so blessed to have such great aunts!

Ani (and her sister) had so much fun opening her new doll house. She plays with it everyday. Mostly she just hides all the pieces. I find the little babies everywhere.

Aniston loves her big sister. They love hanging out together. Kennedie treats her like they are the same age. She makes her help clean her room and do chores. I hope they always stay that close.

She doesn't love T.V.! Now this is a good and bad thing. I would really appreciate if she could entertain herself for just a minute with a little Dora or Elmo. But every time I turn it on she has no interest. Hopefully this will stick so when she gets older T.V. won't be an issue.
She loves to count. She bobs her head and whispers the numbers. We are up to 10 but she refuses to say 11.

At nineteen months she wanted to go on the big girl potty "like squeezy." But now that she is two she would rather just poop all over my house. She rarely has a peeing accident but rarely goes poop in the potty. YIKES!

Everything is pink. Lauren taught her this is a must. I was brave and decided to make her cake. I still think Kohler's bakery does a much better job!
Happy Birthday Aniston, we love you!!
