Happy Birthday, Little Stinker!

Can. not. believe. that my baby is two years old!

For the sappy birthday wish, go here and read last year's.

No sap today cause I've got a 'terrible two' on my hands. How could one little girl go from being SO easy going to SO stubborn in just one year?!? Guess she's getting more and more like me!

Becca's always the last to wake up in the morning, so this morning we heard her talking. Mara, Emily and I all went up stairs...opened her door...and started singing, "Happy Birthday to...."

That's about as far as we got when we were met with, "STOOOOOOP."

Ok, so maybe it was just too loud for 8am. So I said (very quietly and sweetly) "Happy Birthday baby girl. How old are you today?"

This time I got a "NOOOOO".

I've not been able to get through the entire birthday song yet today with out a "STOP." Hmmm, maybe I just sing that terribly!

I think the real reason is that I have a terrible two on my hands with opinions and ideas of her own. Not at all like her mommy, huh?

She did cheer up some when we went to get donuts this morning...just the two of us!









I love you so much Becca Boo! You still make me a better Mommy everyday, and I can't wait to see what God has planned for you
. Happy Birthday, Little Stinker!
Love, Mommy

Happy Birthday, Becca! Only 5 more months until my babies turn 2. I can't think about that right now.

Aww, happy birthday to your Becca-Boo!!

Mine did the same thing on her 2nd birthday - wouldn't let us sing to her either. :)
