already two

how did this happen? i turned around and all of a sudden our baby girl turned 2. two!  
we woke her up (she never sleeps in) to open her presents before i had to leave for pilates. she was a little groggy and out of it. good thing her sisters took over and opened everything for her.

opening birthday presents complete with bed head and diaper wedgie
it took her a few minutes to figure out what was sitting on the lawn. see her holding her other present? her own comb! she was so excited. (yes, i go very cheap on my kids when they are too little to remember what i gave them. he he)       

"HELLO!" she would yell out the windows.
and then open the door, motion her hand and say, "mum in! mum in!"
phoebe spent the majority of her day (minus her 4 hour nap) playing in her new "howus".
*shhh. it's not really new, our friends gave it to us. but phoebe will never know! well, till she reads this.

look at how solemn she was when everyone was singing. she just sat there soaking it in. not even a crack of a smile. this is two seconds before she blew out the candles. then she smiled! she knew exactly what to do. we sure love our little phoebe. she truly is the "Light" of our lives. she didn't even really care about the presents, she just loved having her family over to play and listen to her. she loves all of her family, and we all love her.
