Paris is 2!!!

I can't believe that my little baby girl is already 2 years old...although the tantrums and stubborness are definitely helping that fact sink in! At her 2 year check-up, she weighed in at 28 pounds and is 33 inches tall. It's a little bit sad that she's losing her chubbiness...she is now in the 65th percentile for weight, but just a year ago was in the 98th! Paris has been such a fun addition to our family and does so many cute things these days. She loves to sing songs and knows all the words to the "ABCs," "Twinkle, Twinkle," "I Am A Child of God," and "Itsy Bitsy Spider." She can count to ten, knows all of her colors, knows her whole name and speaks in full sentences! She has no fear of anything and usually has at least one good fall every few days! She loves to jump and dance and run "super fast!" She is very intense, especially when frustrated so I've been trying to find ways to discourage her from slamming her head into the wall or the floor when she is mad....silly girl! Although she scares me on a daily basis, she also makes me laugh and has been such a fun little girl to have in our home for the last couple of years...Happy Birthday Paris!

Out of the archives....

In honor of Halloween, I just had to post this picture from Halloween 2 years ago....

Halloween in Arizona!

This past weekend, we made a quick trip down to Tucson to visit my brother Landon, his wife Melissa and their new baby Austin. It was definitely warm down there which was perfect for Halloween, especially since both of my girls wanted to be Tinkerbell. It was nice to not have to bundle the kids up over their costumes! Originally Savannah said she wanted Paris to be Tinkerbell and she wanted to be something else, but when she saw Paris' costume, she wanted to be Tinkerbell too...these days everything must be exactly the same or we have major meltdowns! Anyways, both girls were so cute and had so much fun trick-or-treating. Savannah is usually pretty shy but she marched right up to doors and yelled "Trick or Treat" and even after they gave her some candy, she would hold her bucket back up until they gave her more!

It was so fun to meet my newest nephew...he is definitely not little (over 15 pounds at 7 weeks!) but he is so cute and the girls loved him, especially Savannah! We were able to be there for his blessing on Sunday which was really neat too. The drive wasn't super fun, but the girls actually did really well, thanks to Little Einsteins and the DVD player in our car!
