Happy 2nd Birthday London!

London is TWO years old!
It's AMAZING how 
FAST it goes!

Birthdays around our house are kind of lame. I haven't been a very good Mom when it comes to making the day super special, so I decided with Londons birthday it was all going to change. She woke up to her favorite breakfast, donuts from Donuts Plus, we watched her TV shows when she asked for them, and I even put up streamers and blew up balloons! It might not sound like much, but it's a lot when I usually don't do anything. 

For her cake I took her to the grocery store and told her to pick one. She picked a vanilla cake mix, purple frosting, cute pastel sprinkles, and pink cupcake foil things. She helped me bake them and even helped me put the candles on the cupcakes.  

We invited the Larsons and the Millers over and had a little party for her. She did awesome blowing out the candles and did it in the first blow. 
The Miller's were so sweet and brought her a cute purple tutu with white leggings. You can kind of see the tutu in the picture below. 
 From Kyle and I she got a book that sings a lullaby. The girl loves books- so we feed that :)
 A My Little Pony...

 and s crib, high chair, a bouncy seat, a carseat, and a carrier for her Baby dolls. London LOVES her baby dolls. Love love loves them. 
London is such a sweet and sassy little girl. Her and Macy are so different that I am definitely trying to find what kind of discipline methods work her for. Everything is on her own terms. Time outs, taking toys away- those things don't really work. She has to be excited about what she's going to do and it really does have to be her idea. She is such a good cleaner though, if I need anything picked up she is always the first one to help me. In the grocery store yesterday we were walking down the cereal isle and she noticed a box on the floor she says "UH-OH" and went and put it back where t was supposed to go. She LOVES giving hugs and kisses and her hugs are always so good. She is our athletic one. She is the champ of the jungle gyms at the park, will jump off anything, and really believes that she can't really get hurt, and if she does get hurt she hops right back up. She is a champ at the iPad or "padpad" as she calls it. She can show anyone up on that thing, she gets around it extremely well for a 30 yr old let alone a 2 year old. She doesn't like bed time too much and has to have her pink baby and her blanket (any blanket really) to sleep. She does whatever Macy does, goes where she goes, and wants whatever she has. She is definitely a little sister in those regards. I love the spirit she brings in to our family, we love our little "loulou".
