Our baby is 2 today. She is such a blessing to us and in so many ways. A few things I love:
*the little girl sweetness.....there is nothing like it.
*that she is 100% girl, but can still hold her own with the boys.
*her love of babies....nurturing them, feeding them, changing them.
*the sassy part of her personality that catches us off guard.
*her laugh.....it's pure joy to hear.
*the way she talks....not just what she says.....but her sweet voice, too.
*her place in line....with two big brothers to take care of her....so happy how everything fell into place.
*a new bossy side emerging....which makes Jack a little nervous.
*her hugs and kisses and (finally) love of cuddling before bedtime.
A few pictures of our baby from birth until now:
Day 1. Our punkin arrives.
With her namesake, Caroline.
The celebrated paci.....she loved it for about 5 months. And, we did, too, because colic is such a very strong force to reckon with.
Growing up.....starting to crawl.
How she spent the majority of her first year....in the Baby Bjorn....so I could have my hands free to wrangle Jack, of course.
Gorgeous eyes.....ever changing.
Her Catholic baptism.
One of my favorite pictures ever. Fitz, you gave her that top. Loved it!
Birthday girl....1 year old.....lots of hair, turning blonde.
Our only Colorado born kiddo.....hopefully she'll turn into a little tree hugging, earth loving environmentalist.
Sweetness sleeps.....always with Lamby, (now with Meow Meow, not pictured) and her baby.
So happy when she has something to nurture....like the kitty perched up on her arm.
Starting to look so big.
Lovely, curly, long blonde hair.
Full of life and so much fun. She may be little, but her personality is BIG.
A party at home is planned for the evening......making homemade pizzas with the kids....cupcakes and presents and birthday fun.
Happy Birthday to our sweet baby Laine!!!!!!!
