Two years ago today......

Jamey and my lives changed forever...for the better. Our daughter came into the world. Alyssa 2 years ago weighed in at a massive 5 lbs 6 ounces and stole our hearts. She has been such a gift to us, such a blessing in our lives. 
Today Alyssa is still a little bitty weighing only 23 lbs. She's funny and happy and loud and truly a terrific 2! She likes to dress up in our shoes, yesterday she came down stairs sporting a bra for a hat, once followed me down the stairs to answer the door for the UPS man with a tampon stuck in her ear (the UPS man thought it was hysterical, I was completely embarassed!!!), sings loudly, dances at completely inappropriate times to whatever is playing, head bangs to her Daddy's CD's, throws massive temper tantrums, gives the very best hugs, talks incessantly in whatever language it is that she speaks, thinks that she should take a bath 12 times a day, sometimes drinks out of the dog bowl (we do discourage this behavior!!), has a true obsession with Elmo, thinks her Daddy is her horsey, loves lip gloss, eats truly odd stuff for a 2 year old, covers her face with her hand and puts on a dramatic heartbreaking display anytime Jamey gets on to her, sits on the cat, loves flowers, collects rocks, could spend all day any day outside, picks up bugs, shakes her "booty booty" on command, talks on her phone and laughs hysterically all the way through the grocery store, and truly truly is the LOVE of our lives. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!!!!
