Hannah's 2nd Birthday!

Well I am the Big 2!!

Mommy and Daddy threw me a party full of surprises!
We were all set up to play and jump outside when...

Surprise #1...
That 30% chance of rain projected to hit in the afternoon decided to strike early!

Minutes later, it was raining cats and dogs!

Well, cats, dogs,
ladybugs and even frogs

to name a few rodents and animals running around my house.

Do I make a nice ladybug Daddy?

Nevermind the ladybug thing, I think I'll get my face painted like a pink kitty!

Loving my princess tatoos!

It's Cake Time!



Some of my friends enjoying cake!

Lots of my family came too!
Uncle Dennis, Hadley, MamMa Ruth, and Mimi

Nana and Papa


My cousin's Ronito and Hadley enjoying the goats.

However, my favorite was clearly the oh-so-soft bunny rabbit!

So here's to the rain, and moving a petting zoo into my garage.
I still smiled through it all!
Isn't that what birthdays are all about??

Hannah's Poems ...Mommy Minute

As some of you may already know, my little Hannah will be turning 2 in 6 days!
Maybe it is the emotions I am feeling from Mother's Day,
or maybe it is the emotions I am feeling because my baby is growing up. But,
Hannah ,
never worry, you will always be my Baby!
Some of you may know, I love to write.
I have papers about Cougar Attacks, Classroom Engagements and Shrimp Thieves to name a few.
I have poems for my husband, foot doctor, and even co-workers.
But, I have never written anything for by own daughter.
The pressure is just too great.
But today is the day I will venture out and overcome my fears!
I feel so honored
that I was selected to be your mother.
I feel so blessed
that I get to truly feel your pure love each day.
I feel so optimistic
because I know your kindness, intelligence, and strength
is going to better the world.
I feel so fortunate that I get to be a child in your classroom
learning from you every day.
I feel so humbled
by the piece of perfection I was trusted to raise and nurture.
I feel so thankful,
for even though I was selected to guide and protect you,
I know you,
my little angel,
were selected to guide and better me
I'm in Love with a 2 Year Old
I'm in love with a 2 year old,
a 2 year old,
a 2 year old.
I'm in love with a 2 year old,
and I can't help but shout out why!
She puts her whole self in all she does,
not many people dare to try.
The way she lights up with sheer joy
from her toes to those precious, blue eyes.
She speaks with such conviction,
many can't help but follow and believe
because this 2 year old is something special,
and I can't wait to see the greatness she'll achieve.
She is Miss Independent,
determined to lead the way,
but she never wanders too far off
because God guides her day.
When she snuggles and she cuddles,
her warmth can't help but flow out.
She simply melts my heart ,
and I can't help but gladly shout,
I'm in love with a 2 year old,
a 2 year old,
a 2 year old,
I'm in love with a 2 year old
and I can't help but feel so
I will always love you Hannah Grace!

Prayer Performance

Everynight I say this prayer before I pray for everything else ie... Mommy, Daddy, Uncle Moises, Hannah's crib, pancakes, applesauce ect...)

Hey, what can I say I am very thankful!
Mommy and Daddy recorded me saying my prayers since they wanted to capture my cute prayer voice to remember always! =)

Here is my Sweet Prayer Voice.

And here is my Gospel Prayer Voice.

Mommy and Daddy were quite surprised by this one.

A Minister in the Making!

Look Closely!

Yes, today was a big day! I now have a BIG Girl Bed! I was very excited about it.
If you look even closer, yes, you will see paint on me since I was painting. But look even closer.
Yes. I am wearing big girl panties!
Today, I went all day long wearing them.
I had a few accidents when I was occupied in things I really love to do like painting and eating. But, overall I am ready. I don't know if Mommy and Daddy were ready. But I kept telling them and they finally listened.
I have been crawling out of my crib for a few weeks now, so I am glad they decided to make it easier for me to get out of bed.
I have been waking up in the middle of the night lately to tell my Mommy and Daddy I have to go potty, so I am glad that they decided to make going potty alittle easier on me.
So a Big Girl Bed and Big Girl Panties.
Baby no More!

Just Hanging Out! (The above wonderful pictures were taken by my dear friend and photographer, Dana Bone.)

Stealing a Kiss!

Having Fun with Mommy and Daddy

Enjoying the beautiful Austin days!
