Bethany Turns Two!

 Bethany had a blast turning two.  We had a tiny party at home with her grandparents, aunt, and cousin, Alexis.  Up above there is a sweet picture of Clara with her grandfather - just so the world can see that they had the same hair for a while. :)

 Mommy once again made Pioneer Woman's cupcakes, which were quite yummy.  Bethany didn't quite manage to eat both of her cupcakes, so clearly Mommy is going to have to work harder on those life goals.  She also struggled with blowing out her candles - complete with trying to touch the flames. 
 Granny got Bethany an AWESOME slide for the yard.  Despite the defective base that took Grandpa and Daddy quite a while to overcome, Bethany and cousin Alexis had a blast putting the slide to good use.  It is the perfect size, and Bethany loves to get it out when we play in the yard.

 On her actual birthday, we took chocolate muffins to school, and came home to an amazing present from Aunt Paul & Uncle Dave in Indiana.  They got Bethany her own set of dishes, and an apron to wear while she cooks! As you may or may not know, her favorite thing to make is pumpkin soup (which she has never eaten), so she got right to work putting soup in the bowls.

At two, these are some of Bethany's favorites.  Thanks to my cousin Beth for the inspiration for this, by the way.

Foods: Pasta, Pizza, Strawberries, and Zaxby's chicken
Books: Thanks for Thanksgiving, All the Water in the World, Pete the Cat, and Ladybug magazines
Songs: Nursery Rhymes and Music Class songs, plus Good King Wenceslas and The Friendly Beasts
Things to Play: Cooking in your kitchen, anything outside or at the playground, and painting
Funny things you've said:  When asked why your shoes were in the car, "I not 'posed to take them off, but I do!"  When asked what present you would give Baby Jesus, "Zaxby's chicken and a card."  

You love your sister "Carwa" and try hard to be a good helper to Mommy and Daddy. You also love to go to school and play with your friends there.  We are working on listening to adults, but overall you have a very sweet spirit, and we are so glad you are a part of our lives.  We love you!

P. S. Bethany's formal two year old shoot is here: http://www.monkeybeanphotos.com/home/2011/12/4/bethany-2-years-atlanta-georgia-childrens-photographer.html.  Be sure you watch the video. :)
