Sadie Turns Two!?!?

How did this happen? It seems just yesterday she was born. I've heard people say that a thousand times, but now I know what they were talking about!

For any difficulties Sadie put us through the first year and a half of her life she has MORE than made up for in the last six months. She is a great toddler and has the funniest personality! I never knew I could love one little person this much. She is amazing!!

These are my top 20 adjectives to describe her:
adorable ~ demanding ~ small ~ clever ~ happy ~ complicated ~ sensitive ~ hysterical ~ strong-willed ~ affectionate ~ pensive ~ cautious ~ sociable ~ observant ~ lovable ~ coordinated ~ unique ~ gentle ~ smiley ~ passionate

Here are some pictures from her party. There weren't nearly as many tears as there were last year, thank goodness!

(These two are the best of friends!)

(She wanted the video camera in this picture :)

(My Mom's reaction to the baby announcement)

(Opening presents)

(Is he a cute little kid or what?)

Due to last year's disaster with the birthday cake we decided to have ice cream sundaes this year instead. However, we forgot to sing to her! So, we gave her more ice cream, sang to her, and let her blow out her candles after every one had left. We were impressed she was able to blow out her candles. I wonder what she wished for?

Great post Alicia. Good thing Sadie didn't realize you forgot to sing to her the first time. :) I wish I could have been there. By the way, great pictures, I love the one of Dad and Ethan!

Thanks Christy and Heather! Sarah actually did all the pictures from this night, and I agree, she did an excellent job.
