Amelia the 2 Year Old

We celebrated Amelia's 2nd birthday (a day early) by having some fun out at the mall.
 We took our first visit to Build-a-Bear. Amelia chose a sparkly pink cat named "Sparkle" and Jack chose a brown bear named "Bear".
Both Jack & Amelia were a little nervous about pushing the peddle that filled up the bears with fluff.  It was loud and kind of scared them.  Ooops!
 Amelia chose 2 hearts to put in her bear.

Once we got home we played outside for a couple hours.  Barrett and the kids flew a kite out front of our house.
 2 YEARS OLD!!!!

Amelia wasn't feeling the best on the early morning of her birthday so I was actually able to get another picture at 3:35am, the exact minute she turned 2 years old!
 Her birthday cinnamon roll breakfast.
 On the morning of her birthday she opened presents from Mommy and Daddy.
 They insisted on wearing their giraffe hats for the present opening.  She had a cute bow to wear - but whatever makes you happy...

Jack was a great present opening helper :)

 This was also the day we celebrated Thanksgiving with Barrett's side of the family.  So Amelia got a yummy turkey dinner for her birthday lunch!
 Singing Happy Birthday with a pumpkin muffin and pumpkin pie.

 We took a walk to the pond.  It was a perfect weather day.  Just like the day she was born.

Amelia's 2nd Birthday Baby Doll Party!

Our little Amelia turned 2!
We celebrated by having a baby doll birthday party.  Baby dolls are her favorite right now so this was perfect for her.
Doesn't she look like a baby doll?!
 The living room was all set for playtime with the baby dolls - changing pads, doll blankets, doll clothes,
strollers & baby doll beds.
Displayed were many pictures of Amelia over the past year.
Dinner was pasta, green beans, salad &  french bread.
