Guess who turned 2

Yep....I can't believe it! We have a little two year old running around this house. And a newborn. Sigh....life.

Anyway, we celebrated the day in a very low key fashion - I made Hailey a cake and we had Hailey's BFF Kyla (and her parents) over for cake and then we all went to see Ice Age. It was Hailey's first movie in the theatre ever, and let me just say - she LOVED every second.






Then to really mark the occasion we had another really...very low key gathering of a few friends from the community. We spent the afternoon at the Beach. When I say low key I mean it...I didn't do anything special. So basically it was a more of a play date at the Beach. Which honestly was all I could handle with a 2 week old. And (because I had a 2 week old) I took one and only one picture from the day...and it wasn't even at the Beach. At least it was the spray park beside the Beach. Hailey is in love with water and especially the spray park. No Fear. That girl has no fear whatsoever!


Hailey got a new bike from Ben and I...which is still too big. So she actually rides her bike from last year still...which is also still too big. But that's what Birthday's are for. Plus (and I'm whispering this because if Hailey ever found out she'd be mortified that we cheaped out on her Birthday), anyway, we bought this trike for $5 at a garage sale. Lucky us!

The girls . a little tummy time . a little love . maybe too much love


We have been having some summer fun here too. There is this awesome spray park just a few minutes from our house...so a bunch of us from the community took our kids out for the day. It was fun! Here are all the kiddos (minus the one's who were on a potty break...I guess that's what happens when you're potty trained. Does it sound like I'm trying to justify the fact that I'm not potty training Hailey yet? Well it's true, I'm just not ready)


And Hailey loving on Kyla...Hailey loves Kyla so much, and Kyla so kindly puts up with it.


So last week we went camping down in Montana ... this was our first trip out since Paige was born (our trip to the Kananaskis last month was just a day trip - we were not crazy enough to spend the night with a 5 day old).

I was so nervous . Paige was so good.

Seriously, so good. In fact I'm tempted to sleep in the RV more often, because she hasn't slept as good since! So here is the one and only picture I took of the trip. Hailey just barely learned how to smile for the camera - there will be more learning one day, but for now I think this little 'smile' is adorable!! I LOVE this kid!
And finally, we've had a rough little start to life with Paige. She was unlucky enough to inherit the reflux genes, which means we've had a LOT of screaming and a lot of crying (by me) and not so much sleep. So, whenever I come across a moment like this, I have to take a picture.


Oh and Hailey sleeps too - wherever she feels like it I guess:


And one of the girls in their matching PJ's...this is why it's fun to have two of the same - matching clothes!

Don't worry about the potty training. I'm not even thinking about it with my almost 3 year old. He's soooo not ready. Maybe before the baby comes we'll get it...

What sweet pics! Your girls are adorable. I can't believe you paid $5 that for the bike! Awesome! You know brand new they are like $50 (at least that is what we paid for Camden's when he was 2..we weren't lucky enough to find any in a garage sale), so good for you! It looks brand new too. Why spend all that money to buy brand new when they hardly spend any time in it at all!

Whew - busy girl!! Glad you had such a good time last weekend - we missed you. I need to schedule Tia wearing her matching PJ's with your girls next time we see you - she's a lone princess here:)

I love matching! Paige is so beautiful Meagan, you're a lucky mom! I can't believe Hailey is two, and she looks even more grown up sleeping on the changing table! Nice :)
