i think my most favorite part of having her around (besides all the fun girly stuff, which is way more fun than i ever thought possible) is seeing her idolize her brothers. she watches their every move and tries to copy them as best she can. she asks where they are all day long and waits for them to come home from school with the sweetest little face. they kind of treat her like a little puppy for now, they'll pat her head or throw her a smile but then move on to what they're doing. but i know that as they get older they will be her protectors and biggest fans. it truly melts my heart to see how she loves them so much.
she is the little light in our lives and has completed our family better than i ever thought possible. happy 2nd birthday sweet girl, we love you with all our hearts to the moon and back!
since she can't really answer the birthday questions i thought i'd answer for her.

how old are you shelby? this is her trying to hold up 2 fingers, so cute!
somehow in the last few weeks she's gone from little baby face to toddler face. it's killing me.
she is still my shelby baby.
the other fun part of being two is insisting on picking out your accessories. she had to wear her necklace and birdie shoes. no arguing on that one. girlfriend loves her shoes and jewels.
i know one day she's going to let go and not grab a hold of my finger again so for now i will just soak up the sweetness of this little girl. hearing her tiny two year old voice telling me, "mama, come on!" just about brings tears to my eyes. she is so full of wonder and excitement and she wants all of us to be a part of it. there is nothing better. may she always want one of us (who am i kidding, i hope she always needs her mom there) by her side close enough to grab a hold of a finger.
