Sloan turns 2 today. This picture pretty much sums up our sweet Sloan Girl right now. As I've said before, she's constantly changing clothes or running around in nothing but a diaper. While she's a total princess who loves dressing up, her hair is usually a mess and her feet are usually filthy. She loves playing outside. She's often found in the backyard sliding down the slide, swinging on the swing set (a.k.a. "wee"), or drawing with sidewalk chalk -- all with her baby doll in tow.
She is definitely a strong willed child and not afraid to throw a tantrum. On the flip side, she is also quick to laugh and ask for "mo" tickles, neck kisses, and spins around the dance floor. She keeps us on our toes and we can't imagine our lives without her!
We celebrated the little miss's birthday early while my parents were in town. Sloan picked out Hello Kitty party decorations and I did my best to make her a stacked chocolate cake (definitely a labor of love). She was surrounded by her family and loved playing with her brother and cousin, opening present, and eating dessert.
|Waiting to open presents.|
|Homemade dress ups from Jared, Cassidy, and Graham were a big hit!|
|She insisted on trying on ever article of clothing she got. She also really liked her cuddly new blanket.|
|Grandpa gave her some beautiful dresses including this one a la the Sound of Music. All together now, "Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes..."|
|At least it tasted good!|
Happy birthday, baby girl! We love you!!
