Pretty Princess

Here's a cute pic of Sweet Pea trying on her Halloween costume. It's funny because we kept asking her what she wanted to be for Halloween and all she would say was, "Dora". Do you know how hard it is to find a Dora costume? In addition, she was completely uninterested in any costume we held up to her (probably because they weren't Dora.) However, I did go get a Dora backpack, and she was uniterested in that, too.

Us: "Do you like this?"
Her: "Yes."
Us: "Would you wear it?"
Her: "No."

So, long story short, I just picked out a princess dress. I think she likes it!

We had our 2-year checkup recently and here are Sweet Pea's stats:

Weight: 27.5 pounds (55%)

And, just for fun, you can compare what her stats were at 18 months:

Out for a Sunday Drive...

Sweet Pea and her BFF took a ride in her new SmartCar this weekend for my mom's birthday celebration at the park. I think they like it!

2nd Birthday Recap

Saturday we had Sweet Pea's birthday party at the pumpkin patch. We were all so surprised by how HOT it was! When we got in the car to leave at 5pm, the car temperature gauge said 92!!! Sweet Pea had a blast - despite the hot weather. My mom bought her a really cute shirt that had a piece of cake on it that she was going to wear to her party, but, it had long sleeves so we had to dig out some summer clothes. The pumpkin patch was so much fun, all the kids got a pumpkin, a ride on the tractor train, and a ticket to the playground. We held a toy drive to donate toys to Friends of Kids which is an organization that give toys to kids who have cancer. I can't wait to drop off our donation, we have so much! Everyone was so generous, it really means a lot. Here's a few pics from the day:

This is how we wear headbands at our house:

And this is how Sweet Pea likes to spend her time in mommy's closet:

Lollipop Lollipop

For the record I wouldn't give Sweet Pea a lollipop (can you say "choking hazard"?), BUT...we picked up dinner at the Thai restaurant and the nice man behind the counter gave it to her and she shoved it in her mouth before I could blink an eye. She did OK with it, and cried her eyes out when she ate it all and it was gone :(

Pennies and Little Girls

I've recently discovered how delightful it is to ask Sweet Pea what she was dreaming about when I get her up from a nap or in the morning. I'll say, "Did you have sweet dreams? What did you dream about?" and she always responds without hesitation. A few days ago it was "Nini's puppies" (Nini doesn't have any puppies). And this morning it was about "Pennies and little girls".

So cute :)

First Fly In

In case you didn't know, Sweet Pea's daddy is an aviation extraordinaire! Last weekend we took her to her first "Fly In" at the Alton Regional Airport. Since she LOVES heavy machinery, we thought she'd love this. We were right!

Farm Girl

Yep, these tires look good...
