my girl is two

Time seems to move a little bit faster with each child. Today this precious baby girl of ours is TWO years old & that doesn't even seem possible!
Cheney Katherine, you are such a special girl. We always knew we wanted to have to a girl but we could have never dreamed of a more perfect girl for our family! You are the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. You love to "go nigh nigh" on our shoulder when you need a snuggle but you are a feisty little thing when your brothers are bothering you! You are fearless--always climbing, exploring, jumping off things, & trying to keep up with your brothers. You have the sweetest heart & always make sure I know if someone nearby is crying and you always check on your brothers when they are upset. You ALWAYS keep us laughing too! You love to disappear upstairs and come down wearing random items of clothing and shoes that are way too big for you. You have girly dress up clothes but prefer Griffin's spiderman costume--that's just your style!
At 2 years old, you love:
-Doc McStuffins, Mickey Mouse, & Peppa Pig
-your baby dolls. You are a sweet little mama and love to carry around your babies!
-reading books. You love having us read to you & sometimes I find you sitting in your chair reading by yourself!
-music & dancing--Hosanna Rock is your favorite song!
-your brothers! Y'all drive each other crazy but you love them so much. I know you will miss Grayson this year while he is at school!
-all animals but especially dogs!
-your daddy. You are a daddy's girl through and through & only like when he puts you to bed!
Cheney, you are such an active little girl. You remind me so much of Grayson at this age. You are very coordinated, can run really fast, and love jumping on the trampoline. You also love swinging on any type of bar you can reach. Future gymnast?! You have gotten super independent lately and love exploring playgrounds on your own.  I think that is the 3rd child in you...you want to be big just like your brothers! I love your fearless and adventurous spirit....even if it does mean I have been researching toddler leashes. ha!
You are my opinionated, sassy little girl and already want to have a say in what you wear. You like to pick out your shoes and bow. Snow boots and cowgirl boots have been your favorites lately! You also hate tutus and ponytails. We are working on that!
Cheney, you are such a gift to our family.  You are the little girl I never knew I needed. I catch myself just staring at you because you are beautiful & I can't believe you are mine! Watching you grow up, learn new things, and turn into a sweet little girl is such a joy. You are strong, independent, brave, & loving--I can't wait to see how God uses you as you grow up! We love you so much.
Happy birthday to our Cheney baby!
