Our little Oak is TWO!
We started talking about her birthday maybe a month leading up to it…and by the week prior it was ALL she wanted to talk about! Read birthday stories, talk about her cake (what color cake do you want? pupl.). I got new cake pans and gel food dye, pulled out the birthday bunting and we pulled off a great low key party day.
Grandparents joined us for a morning at the beach (her favorite thing ever), followed by backyard burgers and lots of purple cake. Presents had never entered the converstaion but she was pretty into them as well. She even has her own harmonica now!
Our sweet girl is so much fun. Super excited to be a big sister (soon!), loves books, music, the beach, kitties and her May May (stuffed bunny). She is super easy going and loves to be outdoors. She loves to tease Daddy about how she does not love him, even through she and him are the best of friends, going on walks and beach adventures nearly every day. Her vocabulary is expanding daily, even though things are still conveyed in single word sentences. Yesterday she very clearly told me: beach. low. wawa. beach. “hey mom, it’s low tide. Time to go to the beach!” (and yes, it was low tide…it is amazing what kids pick up!) “How Bout that?”
We are soaking up our last few weeks as a family of three, and so thankful for our sweet and adorable two year old girl!
