Happy Birthday Adalyn

Yesterday, Adalyn turned 2 years old. She is at a fun yet sometimes challenging age. Here are a few pictures from the day!
She got lots of Bubbles!

A new stroller for her babies and a new baby.  We went to the cabbage patch hospital a few weeks ago and she was in love.  (pictures from that day trip to come soon!)
She also got a set of Mickey Mouse books that she LOVES. 
We made cupcake cones for her cake.
She chose Macaroni and Cheese for lunch
She loves to sweep and after lunch, decided it needed to be done.  It was fun to watch her throughout the day.  I really didn't care what she did, since it was her birthday and she had a very imaginative mind.
Blowing bubbles when dad came home.  It was actually raining all morning long - so it had cleared up just in time.

Well, maybe eating bubbles is more fun.
We had pizza and watermelon for dinner.  Again, her choice.  I think she would eat pizza every meal, every day of the week, if you gave her the choice.  She takes after her dad!
Here are our "ice cream" cones.

It was a fun way to make the cake.

She loves her mickey mouse balloon too!
Adalyn is such a funny little girl.  She talks and talks, and most of the time you can understand her.  She loves to say, "Ew, goss, yuck!" whenever she sees something gross.  She knows her letters (which was self taught by the leap frog toy.)  She loves her sisters, and especially loves to pester Ali.  She knows when she is bothering them and will just follow them around the house.  I constantly hear, "Mom, Adalyn is following me."  She doesn't do more than that, you can see the satisfaction on her face that she is bugging them.

She loves babies!  She is always giving them hugs and kisses and telling me if they are "happy" or "sad".  Most of the time, the babies are sad after she bonks them on the head.  Then she'll look at me innocently and say, "sad."  It's so funny.

Adalyn loves being chased by her dad and will run and try to tickle him and then run as fast as she can away from him.  She loves to sing.  A few of her favorite songs are "Popcorn Popping", "Book of Mormon Stories", "Shake, Shake" and monkey's swinging in the trees.  She is very independent, but when she wants something she can't get, she will find you and drag you along until she gets whatever she wants.

She loves to eat and is in the stage of every 10 minutes, is ready for something.  She calls bread "lunch" and loves crackers.  She will eat strawberries and bananas by the gallon full, along with string cheese and yogurt.  She loves when we sit and read books and loves to watch movies/tv.  She is definitely fun to have around and makes us laugh every single day!

Happy Birthday Adalyn - we love you!

I didn't realize she wasn't two yet. It's fun to read about how similar she is to Lily. That's awesome she knows all her letters already!
