Baby girl's birthday

I am so ashamed to admit that my darling baby girl turned 2 years old nine whole days ago and I JUST realized I haven't even blogged about it.  What kind of mom am I???

So this is THAT post.  The Happy 2nd Birthday Princess Sierra Catherine post.

So first I have to share pics from her babyhood and what not so you can "watch her grow" before your very eyes.

The day we brought her home.

Now this year for her cake I went simple. We don't do a big party for two but we have a nice family day and invite any local grandparents to have dinner and cake with us. She's VERY into Dora right now.  So I decided to get her some Dora toys for her dollhouse (see below) and put a couple on a basic cake.  I added the pink icing for visual interest, it was the easiest cake I've made in two years.  And that's saying something because I have four children and a husband for whom I do cakes (or an apple pie since I have that sort of husband lol).

We got this dollhouse on sale at Micheal's last year before the Christmas holidays.  It was just plain wood.  I used acrylic paints and mod podged scrapbook paper onto it to make it pretty for her.

Last year she hardly had hair but this year she got a pretty double french braid for her birthday.
 For a fun family activity we took the kids bowling.  It was the first time for all of them and they had a blast.  Sierra couldn't quite get the ball all the way down the lane but KOJ, Grammy, and I took turns helping her and gave her a little extra push.  Funny enough she actually won the game.  By one point/pin whatever you say in bowling.  She won by one.  Kayd came in a close 2nd.

And that was my baby girl's second birthday.  I have no idea how two years have gone by since I had my precious baby girl but I adore every day with her.  I love watching her grow and learn and navigate life.  I love watching her boss her brothers and I love that she sat and pored over an old photo album with me last night.  I just adore that she loves to help around the house - whether it's the dishwasher or the laundry or washing the floor.  And I am completely amused that her giant tantrum this morning was about her desire to take a bath - which of course I let her do once I figured out what she wanted.
