Lily's Two...What???

Oh our sweet Lily...how much joy you have brought to our lives. Another year filled with your love and laughter and fun! Last year at this time we were looking at you like this:
You've had quite the year sweet granddaughter....how about a little photo review? Okay?
Last year you shared a birthday with Trey at your house
...today, you and Trey will share the birthdays at HIS house. 


Next we had Halloween...you peeked out the bookshelf cabinet in your Pumpkin shirt...
And Mom and Dad dressed you as the cutest little China Doll to go Trick-or-Treating...
We sang Happy Birthday to Peter...you loved the candles...
Christmas was so exciting...Santa knew you were a good little girl...
You and Trey and Peter helped decorate the children's tree...
And you loved inspecting the ornaments on the Big Tree...
We celebrated Pop's birthday...and you loved playing with Zeus!
He gave you a kiss! Ohhhhh you were very excited!
Good thing Mom was there to share in your excitement!
And we had some visits with Daddy...you played dress up...
Daddy helped you get the tutu on...
Daddy brought you to try you first Krispy Kreme doughnut...you loved the sprinkles!
Did you know Daddy wore a hat a lot like yours when he was a little boy? Yep...he was 4!
And then the weather started warming up and it was time for Easter!
Daddy loved when you shared your eggs with him! I'm sure you said yes!
And you and Dad came to play with Peter at Pop and Sush's house!
and you and Peter helped me open my birthday presents...
and you helped Pop celebrate Father's Day...
and you and Peter helped Daddy open his birthday presents...you guys love to open presents!
You know something Miss Lilly...I have noticed you love to wear big girls shoes...
So many shoes...so little time...
But I have faith in you...
But I digress...we all went to see you baptized...you were very well behaved!
and looked very beautiful..
and before we knew it we were ready for the beach again...You, Dad and Mom last summer...
This summer is was just you and Mom...you have been doing a lot of growing...
You discovered Uncle Dan's surfboard...
 and were ready to take over as the new Gidget!
Hang Ten, Lily!
OH yes, we saw you!
and you were very good about washing all those sandy toes...
And now we are ready to have another birthday party for our Lily! You are TWO TODAY....what do you think about that Lily?
Yes, I thought you'd think that was pretty funny! Happy Birthday Lily, 
Loves~Loves~Loves~

This is such a lovely post - watching your grand-daughter over the year. She looks like a lovely wee thing. Hope she has a lovely birthday (I'm sure she will).
I don't have grand-children yet, but I do remember (vaguely) when our girls were that age. Time goes by to quickly - enjoy.

So much curiosity.
So much wonder.
So much excitement.
So much discovery.
So much love shared.

What you have captured in these Kodak moments is the stuff that makes life worthwhile. None of us can afford to lose that childlike enthusiasm, that zest for life and hunger to learn. Lily is a sweet and adorable child and it's wonderful to see how you have documented her growth and development. Lily will thank you someday for caring so much. She and her children with thank you as they examine these priceless images with you.

I hope that you have survived the storm in good shape and that the weather will improve enough for everyone to enjoy the birthday celebration. My thoughts have been with you, dear friend Sush.
