My Birthday Girl

Since I usually do a fun little post for my kiddos birthday...and since we did the whole Birth Story Blog Hop yesterday (p.s. the blog hop is open 'til Thursday, for anyone who wants to join in!!), which is kinda about Baby Girl, but more about me...

I need to give her her own post...dontcha think?

Well, even if you said no...I still would. I'm like that. And, besides...I'd be afraid I'd scar her for life if I didn't give her her own birthday post.

And, it's a lot less hassle to write a blog post and save the scarring, than to pay for therapy costs later in life when she feels jilted and neglected and unloved 'cuz I didn't write a blog post for her on her second birthday.

So, blog post it is.

Baby Girl:

Two years (and one day) blessed our lives in a way none of us could ever imagine.

You entered the world a peanut of a spit fire...and you haven't changed one little bit!

You test my patience daily...and melt my heart twice daily with your sideways head tilts, impish grins, and your "I need me's".

I vow to never change out of yoga pants and knit shirts...'cuz I know you'll keep on coming back for another "worry". So, I'll ask for your forgiveness now, for when I show up to your high school graduation in ratty old yoga pants and a baggy shirt.

It's just my way of trying to keep you close.

Your independence, spunk and stubbornness remind me just a tad of someone else I know...perhaps those who are born on Februray 2nd are born with a stubborn, independent, spunky streak?

I love that you will sit in my lap (worrying my shirt) through many, many books...and I have never, ever read "just one more", just to keep you close.

You've been a self-calmer from very early on...insisting to be simply laid down in your the nights when you "agree" to rock and's what we do. And I lap up every. single. second. of it.

And, you know what else?

As much as I may joke about you "stealing" my birthday...I really think it's pretty cool that we share it!
You, my love, are the best, most wonderful, amazing gift I could ever have received...I am so blessed that you are mine.

We just need to work on your shopping skills.

I love you, Baby Girl...from the very tips of my toes to the very top of my head...and with every fiber of my being.

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
