Party like your 2

Sara Beth turned two years old over this past weekend, and she had a great time with friends.  If you haven't ever heard 7+ girls all under the age of 6 all screaming at the top of their lungs ... repeatedly, let me tell you, it can create some rather unique resonating patterns of interference, and it is loud.  I think my ears are still ringing.  

Heather did a wonderful job decorating, and Sara Beth tried several of the strawberries to ensure they were still fresh before any of the guests came over.

Since she still fears tearing wrapping paper, or even removing tissue paper from a gift bag, so we helped her unwrap presents after everyone left.  She, of course, wanted to try everything on at the same time.

She also got a fuzzy pink stuffed poodle, along with matching blanket and neck pillow.  She calls the neck pillow her "poodle necklace".

I think she is starting to look like the "Mr T" of bracelets.  She will put so many on her arms that they are no longer able to bend at the elbow.  But she loves all of them.  In her other hand, she shows her "cammera," as she calls it. 

She has changed so much in the past few weeks.  She will routinely say complete sentences. She now enjoys jumping into swimming pools and going underwater. When her hair is pulled back she looks like she is old enough to go into kindergarten. But then I realize what age she currently is, and that we need to get through the "terrible twos" first.
