This little munchkin
turned 2 last week.
I can't believe that our "Baby Lila" really isn't a baby anymore!
She is beginning to speak in full sentences, has mastered the art of taking selfies on Mommy's camera:
and thinks she ought to do everything by herself and just like her sister, so I really shouldn't be surprised that she is a big girl now. :)
I had a random, several-day reprieve from "morning sickness" last week allowing me to do the grocery shopping, clean the house, and make a princess castle cake all in preparation for a little family party for Lila. It was such a tender mercy.
With a lot of eager help from Kenners, here is Lila's birthday cake creation:
After grilling hamburgers and hot dogs Lila blew out her candle (or actually, after 20+ failed attempts to blow it out she got a little help), we had some cake and ice cream, and then opened presents.
Blurring past the camera with her new Minnie Mouse grocery cart:
And then play time outside with all the cousins and her new presents:
Happy birthday, sweet Lila. You bring our family so much sunshine; we couldn't imagine life without you.
