Happy 2nd Birthday Naomi

Naomi is now officially two years old and I am completely shocked at how fast that two years went. This was the start of her day, I took a picture of her just waking up and we made pancakes because that is seriously her favorite thing in the whole world.....SHE LOVES HER PANCAKES!!!!!!!!

I got the girls ready and we went shopping for all the birthday stuff because we invited some of our friends over for dinner and cake and ice cream, so she had a couple of her little friends there.

It was such a nice day out that day, we should have been out playing in it but I left all of this stuff to the last minute, so we spent the day shopping which with two little kids isn't the funnest, most enjoyable thing to do.

The girls have been begging Rodger and I for a fish so we decided to get them a fish. I didn't even take a picture of it, but we got a red Betta fish that Tayler calls Kiara. It's an interesting name for a fish but it's theres so whatever she wanted to name it was fine with me.

This is Naomi with her new bike, it's kind of hard to even see the bike but it is a little Radio Flyer trike and she loves it. Naomi has been riding around this little car and she has loved it but doesn't even notice it's there anymore with this in the picture. I can't believe how grown up she looks, where did the time go.

Naomi was having a tough time trying to blow these candles out, right before she started to spit Rodger blew them out, she thought she did it all by herself so she clapped her hands and said, "Ya, I Did It!!" It was really cute.

Now that she is two I told myself I would really crack down on the potty training which I HATE. Tayler seemed to just get it and catch on and Naomi just has no clue yet. She loves to sit on the toilet but it is just so she can shove a ton of toilet paper in there, flush it and say Bye Bye. I figured with her being able to watch Tayler that potty training a second one would be easier but it just sounds so exhausting.

Sand Hollow

My sister came to visit over Memorial and we had so much fun. We went to Sand Hollow and went swimming, it was a lot of fun and Tayler actually got in the water which was shocking because she has always been so afraid of big water. We had never gotten her water wings before and she loved them. Amy spent a week in a half here and we had so much fun, she has a 3 year old daughter named Ionie so we had a tuff time keeping Naomi and Ionie straight. I couldn't imagine having three girls that close in age, they fought a lot but had a lot of fun together also. My younger sister is getting married so my mom, two sisters and I had fun helping my sister plan her wedding, we forgot how much work it is to plan a wedding.

This is my Dad and my sister Amy posing for a picture. I am the only one who lives here out of all of my siblings so when any of my brothers or sisters come visit we line up a bunch of stuff to keep us busy.

I thought this picture turned out really neat. Naomi was loving the dirt and hating the water, she is definately my dirty girl. Tayler hates to get dirty and Naomi can't get dirty enough. I always say she should have been a boy because she is so adventurous, loud, and into everything. Naomi is so cute and fun though, everyone falls in love with her cute little personality.
I felt like I got to finally escape all the craziness this day. I just got
to sit back and enjoy this day with my family. I am so blessed to have such a great husband, two beautiful healthy little girls and a family that is so close.
