Cow Appreciation Day

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Happy Birthday, Caroline!
You are 2 years old!

It is hard to believe that two years ago today you were born! Your daddy and I talked last night about our memories of that special day! We love the little lady you are becoming and can't wait to see all that God does in and through your life. You are so special to us and we can't imagine life without you in it! We love you!

Our Little Singer

Caroline's new favorite thing to do is sing! She sings all throughout the day...and it really seems like it's all day long! At lunch today, she even sang, "I'm so happy. I'm so happy. Mommy's here today. I'm so happy. I'm so happy. Daddy's here today." I guess they sing it in Sunday School! What a wonderful thing to hear her sing!

Our little girl is getting so big!
We can't believe how much older she looks in her new jommies(as she calls them) and headband.
Thanks Gram and Gramp!

Picture Update
Caroline helped me make some bagel pizzas earlier this week! What a big helper!

She loves to play with playdoh these days!

Caroline also enjoys coloring. It is a big treat when we put her pictures on the fridge!

Spring Pictures

Here is the first flower that Caroline picked for her mommy!
I was so excited and she was too!

Here is a picture of Caroline when we were heading to church last Sunday! She looked good in her spring dress!

A Big Girl Bed

This week Caroline started trying to get her legs up over her crib, so we decided to go ahead and move her to her toddler bed. (We are so thankful for the family that gave it to us!) We took her to Target last night and she picked out her own set of princess sheets and a princess blanket. She picked it out herself and loves it! She told everyone in Target she was "sleeping in her big girl bed tonight." :)

She did quite well. She didn't even get up one time! She fell asleep right away and seemed to be doing well. Ryan checked on her about 2:30 and she was laying on the floor on her pillow! We don't know if she fell out, or just decided she'd rather sleep there. She slept there the rest of the night and didn't call to get up until 8:25! She actually layed in there for 30 minutes just talking before she called for mommy! So sweet to hear her in the monitor.

Here is a picture of her showing off her bed. Her eyes are closed, but I thought it was cute.

She layed on her bed right away to try it out!

This is how we found her this morning. She doesn't sleep on a pillow, so we had layed the pillow on the floor beside her in case she fell off. So, she either fell off, or just decided to lay there instead. We didn't here her in the monitor either way.

We dressed Caroline in a "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" onesie today. Well, lets just say that it is too big! Ryan was laughing after he dressed her and said she looked like a circus performer with the big poofy sleeves and tight green pants! I guess we won't be wearing this to church least not with the pants. Maybe with jeans will be better...

This past weekend we had a fun visit with Jeff, Christy, and Claire. Caroline had fun hanging out with her cousin and we had a good time going to the ACC tournament with them all! We loved our executive sky box! Go heels! (Don't forget to watch the game tomorrow...2:50)

Also, this past Friday we had the opportunity to meet Sarah at the Georgia Aquarium. Caroline looked forward to going to the "quarium on Friday" all week, and getting to see Aunt Sarah and Bobby and the "fishies." We even ate dinner at the Varsity with them and all their friends! We loved getting to spend time with them! (P.S.-take a look at the the HUGE freaky crab next to Caroline. It was as big as her!)

Picture Update

Enjoying a nice warm day outside

I found this table at a consignment shop for $6 the other day.
I am working on cleaning it up, but Caroline was dying to sit at it!

Ryan and Caroline playing on his lunch break!

Caroline didn't want to slide down her slide until Daddy did it.
She went down the BIG slide at church last night and was scared to go down this one today.
We don't get it! She said, "I scared, Daddy."

Caroline's new thing is that she is also afraid of bugs (or at least pretends to be) or anything that could be a bug, like a crumb on the floor, fuzz, dirt, etc.
She freaks out and starts saying, "I scared! I scared! Get it!"
She loves to play outside and we are doing a lot of it now that we have had some warmer weather. She talks all the time and is even using complete sentences a lot. Sometimes she talks so much that we have to tell her to stop so that we can talk to each other. We didn't think that would happen this early. :) At this point in time, some of her favorite things to do are take her shoes on and off, play with her dolls, and hook buckles together (like on her highchair.)
When we get in the car she wants to do the buckle on her car seat and says, "Close the door." because she wants to do it COMPLETELY independent without you standing there. Oh well, we stand there anyway. :)

Picture Update

Isn't this a beautiful picture? It reminds me to be thankful for everything God has made!

Caroline loves climbing into the big chairs to sit.

Yesterday afternoon Caroline came down with a 103 fever. Poor thing, I know she felt bad.

And here she is this morning! She slept until about 9:30 and is fever free this morning.
She wanted all of her friends around her on the couch.
I hope she stays feeling well.

More Snow Pictures

We went out into the snow and played for awhile again this afternoon. It was great! This time it wasn't snowing, but it was freezing! Enjoy the pictures...


A look out our front door...

Caroline was not quite sure what she thought when we first went out in the snow.

She stood still for a long time, just standing there. We had to convince her it was fun!

Still standing there...but soon after found out that sledding down our hill was fun!

Ryan and I had a small snowball fight!
It was fun, although Caroline kept saying, "Daddy, you okay?"

Picture Update
Getting her hair fixed...

Helping mommy with the laundry! She loves to take clothes out of the dryer!

Attempting to blow bubbles

My favorite shot of the week! What a beautiful girl, if I do say so myself!

Long time, No see...

Well, it has been a long time (almost 3 months!) since I last updated the blog! So, let me say Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday to Ryan, Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Today! :)
An update on how we are all doing:
Since the last post we had a wonderful month of December. We spent Christmas in Gatlinburg Tennesee with most of my family and enjoyed some cold weather. We had fun celebrating the birth of Jesus, and Caroline's second Christmas.
Ryan celebrated his 27th birthday the end of December.
In January, we traveled to Orlando and enjoyed time with Ryan's family and my family. Ryan, his brother, my dad, and my two brothers all ran the Disney Marathon. We had the pleasure of cheering them on and celebrating with them at their BIG accomplishment! After the marathon we stayed and spent a week at Disney. It was a blast, not only for Caroline, but for Ryan and I too!
Caroline has been doing great. She is growing so fast and is talking up a storm. All the time. All day long. :) Her vocabulary grows every day and there are many times we have to tell her to stop talking long enough for us to get a word in to each other. She says please and thank you (most of the time) and I love you and Goodnight. She prays "Dear God," and talks about the youth in the youth group all the time. She loves for them to come over to her house. Today she put on her shoes by herself and said, "Look Mommy! I did it, Mommy!" I said, "yea," and she in turn said, "Clap, Mommy!!"
