Somebody is 2!!

It's hard to believe that this little baby of mine...

Is now this little girl of mine...

Seriously, where did the time go?  
It seems like just yesterday we were cuddling her, holding her on our chests, fitting her in the length of our arms. Watching in amazement as this sweet girl we were blessed with grew and achieved milestones little by little.  It seems like just yesterday my husband was boarding a plane to Iraq as I cuddled our 2 week old in our arms, wondering how I was ever going to do it without him.  

I would take pictures everyday, literally, and send them to him so he didn't miss a moment, a milestone, or anything cute she did. It seems like just yesterday, we were welcoming daddy home, with my now 3 month old, so excited to have him home. 

From that day on, this sweet girl has been a daddy's girl.  I can't imagine him being deployed with her old enough to understand, because right now he can't do anything without her.

Some examples:

This is what happens when he leaves the house without her.  It is true to this day.

Her shirt is so true!

I can't believe how big she is now and what a great girl she has turned out to be.  She has such a fun personality and it always making us laugh.  Her favorite things right now are: helping dad in the garage, pizza, minnie mouse, the "pipad" (ipad), playing with the dogs, playing outside, and hanging out with grandma.  We are truly blessed with this girl and know that she is a daughter of God.  I thank him everyday with trusting us to be the one to raise her. Some more pictures, just for fun.
