Heidi turned two at the end of September and this past weekend we celebrated with my family fall style- pizza, beer, and football. :)
Not that older ages require high-maintenance celebrations but I especially love this age because the thought of cake + candles period excites them.
On her actual day we celebrated with gifts, pizza, and brownies- my food choices but she was happy. :)
She didn't even seem to mind her eager older sisters "willingly help" to open her gifts.

This girl is so precious I can hardly handle it. She definitely has an element of two-year-old stinker in her- opens anything she can, sifts through wallets, climbs up on shelves, eats my Chapstick (sure, help yourself!)- but the preciousness eclipses the stinker.
Shoes and sunglasses make her world go 'round.
I love all the cute words- pup (cup), tails (pig-tails), puppin (pumpkin), Mae-me (Mary), 'Pay (Guadalupe)- and her voice inflection when she talks. She counts to ten and identifies some colors and letters but you wouldn't know she could talk just meeting her- she clams right up and gives a good side-eye.
Recently I put on The Sound of Music for her, skipping through to most of the songs. After about the fifth "again" of Do-Re-Mi, I was so happy we had one more fan in the family.
She has such cute little curls. Sadly, I don't think they'll last but at least we have proof they existed.
She has only recently started saying Cora's name ("Co-ga"); since June she's called her the very non-generic name "Baby". When she sees one of her sisters holding her she gets in a big huff and hollers, "No! MY. Baby."
Also, sometimes they both seem about the same size...
We love her lots, Chapstick eating and all. ;)
