Tag: 2 years old

It’s amazing how much a child grows in a year, especially in the first couple years of life. From these photos alone you see a baby just barely standing at a year old to finally walking at 18 months and now a silly pigtail’ed girl running the show at home. Harlow’s personality shines so much brighter and stronger compared to her brothers. We were so used to having such chill boys and then she came along and totally switched things up. When she’s unhappy, she’ll definitely let you know. When she doesn’t like or want something, you had better get it as far away from her as possible or else you’re in for it. And of course when she’s happy, you’ll get the best smiles and giggles out of her that make up for all the crazy things she’s ever done. We’re so looking forward to awesome terrible two tantrums and more side-eyeing from this little one. Check out all the ones we captured below!!

January 2019
Just mommy and daughter day at Disneyland on her birthday. I’d have to say the highlight of the trip was meeting Minnie. She couldn’t wait in line and ran up to her while other people were taking photos. I don’t think I’ll ever forget her excitement. That moment will forever be ingrained in my memory bank.

Favorite ride: Dumbo! Did not want to get off. Carousel comes in at a close second.
Favorite gift: light up balloon.

Happy Birthday to our Harlow! It’s so cliche to say, but we love you more than you’ll EVER know.

Nolan has advanced so much in the last 6 months it’s just AMAZING! Aside from becoming a big brother he continues to be super silly, laughs a ton, talks a ton more, sleeps in his own room in his own big boy bed, developed a major addiction to pacifiers, absolutely loves cars/trucks/vehicles of all sorts. Other favorites continue to be book reading, building blocks, eating vegetables and fruits.

Nolan’s a wonderful helper and retrieves for me what I ask (bottle, pacifier, phone, blanket) and even kisses & hugs his brother without being prompted. A couple weeks ago he truly amazed us when he said on his very own a total, complete sentence, “I see the moon.” His use of “the” was totally unexpected but what blew me away was after having sneezed a few times in a row the other day he said, “bless you, mommy.” Just a few simple things that he’s starting to comprehend has us stoked to see how much more he learns in the coming year. Needless to say at the tender age of 2 we are so very proud of him already.

Photos in this post showcase his intimate birthday celebration and a quick trip down to Zoomars a couple days later for a bit of fun.
