Elizabeth is 2 1/2!

Dear Elizabeth,

You are 2 1/2 years old today!!!
(Enjoying her half birthday ice cream with sprinkles)

You have changed so much in the last six months.

You weight 25 pounds and you are 35 1/4 inches tall and you wear 2T shirts, 18-24 month shorts, size 5 shoes, and 2T dresses.

You wear your hair in pigtails most days (to keep it out of your face) and you have never had a haircut.  Sometimes you will wear a hair bow, but you mostly stick to hair ties now.

You love to brush your teeth and ask to do it every time you go to the bathroom.

You talk nonstop and you have become much more conversational.  Elizabeth, you have a memory that surpasses all else, and you never forget anything.

You love to play with blocks, puzzles, dress up clothes, books, and your Mickey Mouse Clubhouse figures.  We have started doing art projects recently and you have really enjoyed all of them.

In the last six months, you have been to Pennsylvania multiple times- once by yourself with Nana and Pap Pap for a week.  You flew to Texas and spent nine days with Gaga and Gramps and Aunt Anna.  You have gone to Maryland to pick strawberries and visit Dad at his office for his birthday.  You love to travel and take trips and every time we get in the car, you ask if we are taking a trip.

We love you so much and we are so proud of you!

Here are just a few pictures of the many adventures you have had in the last six months.

 March 4th
Snow Day!

March 19th, we told the world you are going to be a big sister!

 April 20th, the Easter Bunny came to visit you

 And left you some Easter Eggs

 In May, we celebrated Mother's Day

 On May 15th, we found out you were going to have a baby sister!

 On May 17th, Uncle Adam and Aunt Brigette got married!!!

 You danced all night!

 Mrs. Vicki braided your hair on May 21st
Your first braids!

On May 26th, you got your big girl bed.
You picked out the sheets, blanket, and pillows

 At the beginning of June, we went to Butler's Orchard and picked strawberries.

You ate most of the ones that you picked.

 In the middle of June you made Uncle Adam some signs

 On June 16th, we celebrated Father's Day
You love your Da-da!

 In July, you spent a week visiting Gaga and Gramps in Texas

Talking to Gramps about Donald Duck

 Playing with Gaga

 You did not want to be in this group photo
Watching fireworks with Dad

You also spent a week in Pennsylvania with Nana and Pap Pap at the end of July, but I cannot find any pictures of those adventures.  I know you had a great time!

 On August 5th, we celebrated your Dad turning 33!

Happy Birthday Dad!

 Last week we did some art projects

And some pictures from your half birthday:

 Every day for the last week, you play with your dress up clothes and dress up as a princess.
You spin around and tell us you are a pretty princess.  :)

 Your favorite (and only) show is still Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

 Ice cream with sprinkles for dessert!

You are so sweet!

Happy 2 1/2 years our sweet girl.  We look forward to many, many more.  We are so proud of the beautiful, smart young lady you are becoming.

We love you.

Mom and Dad
