I keep telling myself that I need to sit down and actually write about all that has been going on in my life, but for now? A few photos will have to do. Life feels like a whirlwind, but in a somewhat manageable way. Eisley recently had her second birthday, and I truly have no idea where the past few years went. How is life going by so quickly? (But isn't that always the question of a mother—or perhaps anyone nearing thirty?)
So many thoughts, so many emotions, so little time.
My best efforts for homemade cupcakes for a family get-together (in honor of Eisley's birthday) went horribly awry, so I ended up making a boring ol' cake with one lone cupcake topper. Martha Stewart I am not. (Entirely too emotional and dramatic I most certainly am…just ask my husband.)
We bought Eisley a doll stroller for her birthday, and it was by far the best choice we could have made. She insists on bringing it everywhere—even when all we have to do is run out to the trashcan by the garage. (It should also be noted that she prefers to push around her plush Hello Kitty as opposed to the baby doll we bought her. Who knew?)
Oh, this girl. That face. Always looking for mischief. I can't even handle it.
This is what we like to call "second breakfast" on the weekends. Jay and I never have the opportunity to eat a meal in peace when Eisley is around…she always wants in on any sort of food action. Parenthood means never again consuming a perfectly toasted bagel in peace.
If you run around the house for a solid three minutes without finding your child, it's best to hold off on calling the authorities until you've taken a peek behind all the curtains. (For the record, I didn't actually call the authorities, but I almost had a stroke when Eisley was hiding behind our bedroom curtains the other day and she didn't come when I ran around the house, frantically yelling her name. At least now I know curtains are her new hangout of choice. Duly noted!)
We went to a new park last week, one where we could overlook the city, and it was just beautiful. She jumped around and made friends and all of that. A nice little outing.
Yep, she's two. And a handful. And absolutely hilarious. And I'm thankful for her every single day.
