JoJo is T W O

Our baby is two and I can't hardly believe it!
Jolie still feels like so much a baby to me.  That could be because she quite possibly is our last baby and I am holding on to that so much more than with Brynn.  1st baby you are always rush rush rush, trying to get them to do this or that or learn this or that...and then you kind of catch on to how fast it goes by and well, just don't rush things. Savor them.  It could also be because she is the most petite little thing. She get it from her mama. I mean she still fits perfectly curled up in my tiny 4'11 lap and that makes her feel like that baby is still there.

Holding on to that whole babies don't keep mentality I decided that I would go with a sweet little theme.  I love me a baby in a bonnet. There is nothing sweeter.  & you know, dress them like they are little because they are only little for a little while.  So I knew I wanted to incorporate my two favorite baby things...bonnets and bows.  & luckily for me Jo rhymes with an awful lot, and thus "With a bonnet and a bow, its time to celebrate our sweet Jo" was born.

I wrecked and wrecked my brain about what to do to celebrate Jolie. Because well, second children.  With Brynn we had a "oh two-dles" family party and then went to Disney and she got a big girl bed from Pottery Barn and well...it just got me to feeling guilty and feelings of I need to keep up, everything needs to be equal.  You know...one day she will read this blog ;) .... & see what I did with sis and feel jipped.  Silly I know, but these are the sorts of things that keep my silly self up at night.

Its waaaay to hot for Disney in August. The end. So, we shall save that for another day.

So, I finally decided to come to my senses and realize that she is in fact two and that as long as we have a fun day that is all that matters.  So, I decided to do all her favorite things all day long and then have everyone over for dinner for her favorite food..pizza!  We woke up to donuts, and then spent the day with bubbles, water beads, swimming and water balloons.  Come lunch time she was practically falling asleep in her high chair.

That night everyone came over and had pizza.  We opened all the gifts which consisted of all things babies.  Baby dolls, baby strollers...baby cradles.  She was in doll heaven!

It was a great day celebrating our sweet, sweet Jolie!
