This post is all about a girl who stole our hearts 2 years ago when she was born to a very surprised and overjoyed Mommy and Daddy! It's hard to believe it's already been two years but like the old saying goes the days are long and the years are short and it is so true! We started birthday celebrations Friday night with the traditional Hickory Park birthday sundae. While we were waiting for our food Callie and Grandpa practiced holding up 2 fingers, she kind of gets it.
The boys even took a break from their coloring every once in awhile to smile for the camera.Soon they brought out the birthday girls ice cream and she was shaking with excitement(literally!)She actually did a really good job blowing out the candle.
She very much enjoyed her ice cream as well!
On Saturday Carl and I worked on Callie's birthday cupcakes. If you've been around Callie very much you know she LOVES puppies! So of course we made puppy cupcakes for her big day. I think they turned out pretty cute.
The puppy in the center is one of my favorites.
Sunday morning our birthday girl woke up to a birthday donut and candles. She loves the sprinkles!We had church in the morning and I snapped this picture in her cute little 2 outfit before we left, just to make sure we had one picture of her wearing it while it was still clean!
She likes to create unique poses sometimes:)After church we headed to Grandma and Grandpas house for a small party. Callie loved her puppy cupcakes!
Before we sang Happy Birthday and ate cupcakes though we let the birthday girl open her presents. This big pink one was very intriguing.
She got many cute little clothes and a doll and matching dress up outfit, she loved everything! After presents we lit candles and sang to her. She had a little trouble blowing out the candles this time(although Ty tried to help her out by blowing them out for her before she had a chance, we had to relight them and tell him not to help this time:)
She did enjoy eating her puppy as well(she is wearing a headband from one of the cute little tutu's she received from Uncle Pete and (almost) Aunt Kim
Soon after the cupcakes the birthday girl was ready for a nap! She slept great. When we got home we took the traditional chair picture. We do it each month birthday from 0 to 12 months and then yearly after that. Here is her two year picture. She insisted on wearing her new dress up clothes and sit with her doll.
She had a great birthday. I can't wait to see what the next year holds for our sweet, smiley, messy, loud, wiggly, crazy, joyful, silly girl! We love you Callaghan Grayce, we are so blessed to have you in our family!
