....this weekend! she will be two on Sunday. her party is tomorrow.
it's going to be a very small party, just my parents, my in laws and my aunt and i guess she might be bringing soemone. my brother and his family cant even come because they are far too busy shooting turkeys or something gross. my husband's siblings are all out of state.
i didnt invite anyone with kids cause BP hates kids!
there's not really a theme other than i made some inchworm decorations.

i cant believe she's two! she looks like a little kid! it's crazy!

she loves guinea pigs and goes around all day saying "piggies piggies WHEEEEEEEEK. Hop!" (Hop is the name of my stuffed guinea pig she commandeered as her own)
she loves her stuffed animal pals, half of which used to belong to me.
she LOVES books.
she likes whales, turtles, dinosaurs, bears, tigers, etc
she knows all her colors and is beginning to sort of get the hang of 1,2,3 with prompting.
she LOVES being outside and just wandering around.

we bought her a play kitchen for her birthday which ended up sort of being free because we had amazon points from our amazon credit card. woo.
i also got her a subscription to Natl Geographic Kids that someone here suggested. it hasnt come yet but i think she will love it. she loves early reader books about animals with all the photographs.

she is still VERY attached to me and still nurses like a newborn so it's kind of hard for me because ive been doing this for 2 years straight with no break. i have no idea if we will have more kids as right now it's not even a possibility since she is still nursing for food and calories. im going to be 38 this year and after all the issues i had with my last pregnancy and the issues she has i dont know if i want to tempt fate.
she is really enough for me and i cant imagine anyone being any more perfectly suited for us than her but sometimes i feel guilty if she wont have a sibling so it's still up in the air.

i just love this kid so much even if she makes me want to blow my brains out sometimes but i guess that is motherhood!
she talks and babbles a lot more now but hasnt progressed to 2 word sentences yet (just one time she did. although she says "all done" all the time if you want to count that)

here is her first picture
Image

ONE years old
Image

TWO YEARS OLD!
Image

here is the hand made invites to the party i made. ill post more after the party i just thought i would do this now since she is asleep for once (she is STILL a terrible sleeper)

she is sooo damn cute, Lisa. I wish her, and you guys, a very happy birthday! It's honestly very touching how palpable your love for her is despite all of the challenges and sleep deprivation that we know you are suffering.

also perhaps a ray of light at the end of this ridiculous sleep tunnel - for us, the sleep situation got MUCH better after the 2yr mark. I mean, it was a few months before her 2nd bday that she moved into our bed, but she started sleeping more deeply and for at least 10hours at a time, which was like a dream come true. And after about a year in our bed she transitioned pretty well to sleeping with her sister, just when I thought we'd be stuck with her in our bed FOREVER.

Happy Birthday BP! I am definitely biased, but I think two is a really fun age and BP sounds like she has some amazing interests.

Happy Birthday Baby Punk! Hope the next year is suitably unimpressive ;) And happy birthing anniversary LP! It's been wonderful sharing your journey here! I feel like I really know BP, and she's a total sweetie pie friend to all of us!

thanks everyone! i am happy to say her party went well. the past few days have been very trying. i think she has several teeth coming in at once and all of a sudden decided to be even MORE barnacley than usual if you can believe that. like screaming and crying if she's not like directly on top of me. i could barely move which went i couldnt get anything done. and she wanted to nurse constantly. so im pretty sure it was all because of her teeth but it was soooooo insanely frustrating. i had other people here who were sooo willing to take care of her and she wanted nothing to do with them and would screech and cry if she wasnt on top of me. i was ready to blow my brains out.
then the party started and she was fine for the entire party. so weird. i was very glad for it but it was weird. she played with everyone and with her toys and was fine. only wanted to nurse once towards then end when she was getting tired. she even had some frosting from a cupcake which was a big deal. i took a picture and sent it to our OT to see!
then after the party she took a pretty long nap then went right back to clinging to me and screeching whenever she wasnt on top of me. we had a couple epic tantrums. no idea whats going on other than the teeth. soooo frustrating.

but luckily the party was good!
cupcake yum!
Image

my dad took this pic and it is the greatest picture from the day. SO UNIMPRESSED
Image

here's the inchworm i made broken into two pics so you can see the whole thing

Wow! I hope you continue to get a yearly picture on her toy box, it's so cool to see the difference in a year.

yeah! it's fun! my uncle made that toy box and i took one of her every month in her first year after we got the toy box which was somewhere in the 7-9 month range. i dont remember.
then i took one at 1 year obviously then 18 months then 2 years. will probably take one yearly for as long as she lets me
