I love you, little miss TWO.

This little chickadee turned TWO.  

The flowering plum trees are blooming pink, just like they were on the day, two years ago, when we brought Cora home from the hospital.  The trees were on parade, welcoming our baby girl, in all their glory!  Tim and I love that every year, at this time, the trees remind us of the precious gift that Cora is and how blessed we are to be her mom and dad.  {Insert the boys rolling their eyes because we've told them the sappy story of the blooming plum trees one too many times.  :) }

The rocking chair in the picture was my second find at the antique fair mall, mentioned in my last post {way back in January}.  It was unpainted and looked dingy and dull...but a coat of white paint did the trick!  It now hangs out in Cora's room waiting for her to sit and rock {like I found her quietly doing today} or for her to climb up in to look at a book.  Her room has a vintage vibe, so it is the perfect addition.  {Thank you D & K for the Christmas money that went toward purchasing this chair!}

One of Cora's favorite gifts was a tea set.  She loves it and will happily serve tea to one and all.  Stop by for a tea party any time.

How fun! Happy Birthday, Cora!! Bella loves having tea parties too, so maybe you can both have one together when we see you (although we may need to bring a tea pot too, so they can both pour at the same time...). Can't believe two years have gone by already!!

Just love that little girl! She is so beautiful and melts my heart every time we get to skype. I can only imagine how fun it would be to find her rocking in her chair, so sweet! (So glad she likes it...and you did a great job fixing it up!). What a special treat that the trees bloom for her Birthday! Love and hugs to all of you!
