A long-awaited birthday post: Along for the ride

My darling babe, my little Love, has turned two.

It’s been almost a month now since her birthday. I’ve been in deep denial.  Maybe that’s why I haven’t posted about it yet.  :)

There is something so tremendously special about this little babe.  There’s something magical about her love.

Though two means coming into her own and discovering all the frustration of not being able to communicate all she is feeling, I wouldn’t trade it for a second.  She is an angel and a miracle in my life, and one of my greatest blessings.

Being the sixth child, I think she often must feel that she is just “along for the ride” on this Richmond train.  (Hence the theme of her birthday video.)  She may be in the thick of her terrible twos, but at the end of the day, she’s everyone’s favorite little buddy and they want her along for the ride.  As she gets older, though, she’s making her own “ride,” and it’s thrilling to watch.

(A day of fun in West Yellowstone, MT…one of our favorite fun places.)

Also of note is the birthday we just had this weekend, Matthew’s.  It consisted of a horse-drawn sleigh ride under the stars along the river, speaking in church, backhoes, and getting stuck in two separate snowbanks in two separate cars.  It was a really fun weekend, actually, and though I didn’t get one single picture of the sweet birthday boy, I Love him dearly and I loved every second of celebrating his birthday.  Certainly a birthday we’ll never forget. :)

(This is after getting dug out a bit, before getting pulled out.  You can see our suburban in the front, and our neighbor’s car stuck on the opposite side of the road in the background. Helpful friend’s truck in the middle, ha ha!)
