Happy 2nd Birthday Sloan Violet !

Wow time sure does fly when you get old and especially when you have a child.   Our precious Sloan Violet is TWO today! She has been talking about her birthday for weeks now. "My birthday is next",  and singing "Happy Birthday" to pretty  much anyone, Happy Birthday mommy, daddy, Sheila, Bridget. Sloan LOVES her birthday.

We are having a party for her on Saturday.  I was lazy this year and sent out an email invite, but hope to compensate for it with the party itself. I will be sure to post pictures soon!

Here is more about Sloan:

Recent Development:
Sloan prays every meal and every night, original prayers, "Dear God, Thank you for today, thank you for mommy and daddy, mimi and papa, grammy and grandad, max and spencer, the swing-swing and the swimming pool."  Sloan loves the Eiffel Tower and now compares radio towers to it. "Is that the Eiffel Tower Mommy?"  No Sloan, it is much too small.

Sloan uses big sentences, such as, "I see Mommy's car over there."

Sloan likes: Balloons and Polka Dots. Her Dog Ellie. Blue Clues and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Mommy's iphone. Daddy's computer. Sleeping in mommy's bed. Driving mommy's car. Swinging on the big girl swing. Singing songs. Listening to GOOD music. Dancing. Choo-Choo Trains. Swimming Pools. Spinning around. Going fast. Riding Bikes. Nemo. Mommy's high heels. Makeup. Being Silly. Driving the car. Chocolate.
Sloan dislikes: sitting down while eating. bedtime.

Sloan likes to have us to clap for her when she does something.
She has quick wit and is very comical. She knows when she is funny, as exemplified in the photo below. Mimi was trying to get her to smile, instead Sloan mirrored her actions and made all of us smile instead.

I meant to post this on Friday but we took the weekend off from everything to enjoy our baby girl! She had a wonderful birthday with a trip to an indoor playground for breakfast, then the morning at the pool where we sang "Happy Birthday" to her about 10 times, per her request "Sing to Me".  A long nap. Then a trip to the park to ride the train and the carousel and play on the playground with her aunt "Lorli" and cousins tagging along!

Did I mention she woke up to a room full of balloons?

HAPPY 2ND birthday Sloan Violet!
