Ali turned 2 years old last week....I can't believe it!! Here are the highlights of the day. Shawn had to leave for school at 7:30 - so we had her presents ready, in case she woke up before he was gone. She did....don't you love her "Happy" face?ok - she just needed help with the tape. However, I think Andie was more excited to see what everything was!
I LOVE the picture below because you get a glimpse of her "scowl" that she gives whenever she doesn't want to do something you ask. Shawn had just said, "Ali, pull out the tissues!" And her response, "Don't tell me how to open my presents dad!"
She loved all of her presents....but was mad at the bracelet's because she couldn't get them off her hand! "STUCK!!"
Shawn left for school and we made pancakes. She got the number 2!
"Birthday Girl....let's take your picture!"
That night, we took the girls to Chuck E Cheese!! Ali got a special "happy birthday" sticker and she was SO excited. We had never been before and we all had a BLAST!There was a ride the "sketched" their picture....that was fun!They were both watching the monitor that shows your picture, not the camera....but I thought they turned out cute.
Time for PIZZA! or in Ali's words, "Pizza, Pizza....HOORAY!"
Ali was busy scoping out all the games while she was eating....plotting her every move.
The girls LOVED playing all the games and "riding the rides."
We ended the day getting ice cream. We went to a place called "marble slab" a knock off cold stone. It was fun to share...Ali would say "switch" about every 30 seconds.
Ali, we love you so much!! She is our "BIG" girl and is so fun! She's a great sister and is going to be a great "big" sister in a few more weeks!!
PS - if you want to know her stats....she weighs 35.4 lbs. and is 38 inches tall. The nurse told me an average 2 year old is 27 lbs. and 34 inches tall. YES....once again, she is off the charts!
