Happy 2nd Birthday, Jillian Kate!

Jillian Kate,

Today, you, our precious girl, turn 2 years old! It's such the mom thing to say, but I seriously cannot believe how quickly the past 2 years have flown-by around here.

From the moment we laid eyes on you, our little darling, our hearts were stollen.

And really, who wouldn't be smitten with this adorable face?

This 2nd year of your life has been a joy, just as the first year was with you! 

You are delightful; so full of life. You sport such a big personality and truly are the funniest child I have ever met.

We have watched you learn and grow so much this year. I love that each day is a new adventure for you as you learn and discover new things and I love that we get to be a part of it with you! 

This year has allowed us to really see your little personality! You are so independent and have been such an easy baby. You are also so kind and have such a giving heart. We also discovered this year that you have a little bit of a temper. Your daddy calls you "little Jennifer" when you get upset. :) It has been so fun to see you become your own person this year! 

You have been such a great sister this year. The relationship between you and Brody has been one of my greatest joys this year. I'm so thankful you have each other. What a gift to grow-up with a built-in best friend. I have loved watching your friendship develop this year even more. Having an older brother has made you one very tough little girl! 

The three of us love you more than you will ever know! You truly are a blessing to this family and we are so thankful that the Lord gave you to us.  Each day we see glimpses of the little girl you are quickly becoming and we couldn't be more proud of you! 

Happy 2nd Birthday, cutie-pie! Today we celebrate you and everything you are to this family. Here's to year 3 being the most wonderful year yet!
