It's Been A Little While...

Hello!  It has been over a month since I last posted...time flies!  I just finished up another class for my reading degree so life has calmed down (for a little while anyway).  This past month has been busy but really good!  I'm so thankful for some down time!

Here is a recap of what we have been up to lately...

Warning...there is A LOT of pictures.  If you don't want an overload skip past the blog today! :)

She has a few loves in her is her stuffed animals.  She was supposed to be sleeping but instead she was tucking in all of her favorites!  She is a good little mama!

She LOVES to feed all of her animals too!  We got her a play cake set for her birthday and she enjoys making everyone cake each day!  Today I found her animals enjoying some! 

We have also spent many a days playing with her Little People!  The animals are her favorite things!  A future vet maybe?!  This girl loves her animals!

She was keeping her dinosaurs warm!  It was their bedtime!

Bath time fun!  If she knew her hair looked like this she would have had a fit!  We put her hair up like this before and showed her in the mirror...she freaked out, badly!  I love that she has no idea!  

Celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday....this year! 

2 years ago!  We had fun squeezing into her 3 month outfit at age 2!  She was a good sport about it!  She was so excited to wear the "Cat" outfit!

Getting ready for St. Paddy's Day!  

We love the paint dots--I got them at the Dollar Tree!

An extremely sweet and kind person (that I have never met) made this beautiful quilt for Harper.  She LOVES the quilt and was thrilled to get this special gift!  Lucky girl!  

Another really sweet lady dropped off tickets to my dad for Harper to see Sesame Street Live on Saturday. Harper and I had a Mommy Daughter date night and got all dressed up!   

She was pretty thrilled to see Elmo!

We were pretty excited to be given the tickets!!  

She got up and ready for St. Paddy's Day.  I told her a leprechaun had left her a special treat in the kitchen and this is as thrilled as she got (at first).

Really?!?!  You find glitter...lots of it and no reaction?!?!  What is going on little girl??

The leprechaun left special clover cinnamon toast and raspberries.  Plus, he found a really cute book Green Shamrocks at a thrift store (it came with a cd too)...what a find!

Then she discovered glitter is fun to play with...

And...we finally cracked a smile!  Little stinker!  By the way, it made a total mess but it was really fun.  I had to hand feed her breakfast because her hands were covered in glitter and she couldn't resist continuing to play!  Good times though! 

One of her other true loves these days is playing with her "dupes".  She calls them that and she will say, "play dupes" all day long if you ask her what she wants to do!  

I have got to say this past month has been filled with lots of fun things but watching her grow and play are some of my favorites.  I will also say without a doubt in my mind that the twos are here and they have hit us like a ton of bricks!!  

My sweet little child can turn into an alien at the drop of a hat.  I can't believe how things have changed since she has turned two.  She officially uses the word "no" like it is her job.  She fusses and throws herself down at ANYTHING that she doesn't like, and she doesn't listen to half the things that come out of my mouth.  Stubborn doesn't begin to describe my little girl!  We have seen many of these moments in the past month...

Definitely a normal day at our house now....even through this little girl exhausts me every single day and she definitely makes me crazy with her new attitude, I wouldn't trade this little peanut for anything!

In the meantime, if anyone has any great advice for surviving a 2 year old I would appreciate it!!  :)
