Emmy's 2nd Birthday!

Today was bussssyyyy! We had to be at the field by 8 for Jaxon's last soccer game, came home got ready for Emmy's party, went to Jaxon's soccer party (he received his first trophy), picked up a cake and balloons, and got back just in time to do some last minute clean up and the party had started. I forgot how much work a party takes and how much you don't get to talk to your guests. Anyway, saying that, Emmy had a blast!! The theme was Elmo, she had a bouncy, lots of friends, and her Daddy's BBQ and even a Sesame Street cake. The party was a hit and everyone seemed to have fun!
During the past couple months we have been working on changing a few things but they all seem to come into effect this week. She got her big girl bed (which she loves and sleeps in like a princess) and we moved the crib out of her room , we threw out her bottles together and the transition has been fairly easy using strictly the sippy cup (although she does call that her baba now), and she is 99% potty trained. Lots of stuff going on over here but in the long run she has done extremely well. She is two now and I feel so blessed to have her as my daughter! She is smart, funny, caring, well mannered, sweet sister (idolizes her brother) and daughter, definitely has her opinions and is not scared to express them, loves to dance & sing, loves water(I think she is part fish), hates bugs, and loves soft blankets and Elmo. I am so blessed to have my whole family and I only hope my next daughter will have many of Emmy's characteristics . I have attached some picturess starting from this morning (you can see she is not really a morning person) until this evening. I also wanted to wish My Wee Clodagh a Happy Birthday! I have known her since preschool about 27 years. We grew up together and spent almost everyday together either at school or back and forth from her house to mine. She is in San Diego this weekend and I hope she is having a fabulous time because if anyone deserves to be celebrated it is Clodagh! Goodnight I am exhausted!
