My Baby is Two!

Today is my baby's second birthday! 

don't look at the mess...we are getting ready for a birthday party!
She woke up to balloons and a new doll house! Now I have to find a place to keep it in our tiny house.

She is loving it! I want to add a little baby and stroller into the mix of furniture and funny looking people it came with. I know she will really enjoy putting a tiny baby into a stroller or crib.

I woke up in disbelief that two years have gone by so quickly. The past two years have been amazing. An equal mix of wonderful and challenging. I love my girl so much and I cannot imagine my life without her in it.

Liza is such a blessing. She is so sweet and loves to cuddle, but at the same time, loves running around and playing outside. Today she said to me, "Mama, I love you! I love you! I love you!" My heart was bursting with joy. How did I get so lucky?!

Celebrating our birthdays with cake and strawberry shortcake! Yum!

She has a big birthday party coming up next weekend and I am so behind with planning it! Liza happens to have a lot of cousins around her age (which is so fun!) so it has been a challenge keeping this party small. I am so excited to see her running around with all her little friends and cousins.

Happy Birthday my girl! My little best friend and my heart! You are an amazing and sweet girl and I am so very blessed to be your mommy.

XOXO Sarah

P.S. How do you like the blog's new format? Much better, I hope!!! 


  1. Love! Happy, happy birthday Liza!!! Lovin' the new layout!! Pretty! ;)

  2. Happy Birthday (a day late) to Liza! It seems that you both are so lucky to have each other! You're such a great mom!

  3. Awww, so sweet! That's how I feel about my kids - I can't imagine life without them, and I love them to pieces, but I also admit how challenging many days can be!

    Gwendolyn LOVES her dollhouse, and I'm sure Liza's will be no exception. Gwen is infamous for taking other little toys and cars from around the house and putting them into different rooms, or using the furniture in creative ways. I'm sure you'll end up laughing at some of the scarios she plays out. I ended up putting Gwen's dollhouse on top of an old coffee table and put it in her closet (which has no doors). It's just the right height.
