Happy birthday baby girl!

I CANNOT BELIEVE our baby is 2 today!  Man, time flies!  For those of you that don't know her I'll give you a few random facts about our little lady.  She's pretty awesome. =)

Joya Jae is our little spitfire baby that is seriously tiny.  She weighs 22lbs and I'm not sure how tall she is.. we go to the dr. for her well baby visit this week.  Shes always been in the 5-10 percentile for height and weight so I'm expecting her height to be short too. 

She is SO ACTIVE.  She never sits still.  But she loves to be held.  She'd be content on my hip all day if I was moving around. She likes to know what I'm doing.

She still wears size 3 diapers. 

She's a bit ornery.  She's been known to hit her sister and run for cover.  Many times daily.

She'll start potty training this summer. She doesn't know this yet.  I've started praying for the process already!  

She holds her own. One time in the nursery at church a little boy significantly larger than her took a toy from her.  She walked up to him and put her finger right into his chest and said, "no-no-NO!"  Best part was that Darin got to witness the spunk.

She got a big girl bed yesterday.  We haven't started the process of moving her over from her crib yet but she sure thinks it's fun to jump on!

She's getting more words altho she still has quite a bit of baby jabber.  She talks A LOT.. we just have no clue what she's saying!

Her nick-name is Joy-Joy.

She has a "B" which is her little blanket that goes EVERYWHERE with us. Thank the Lord we haven't left it somewhere yet!  I can't imagine the agony she'd go thru if we ever lost that silly thing!  Here is a picture of the girls before daddy's track meet last Tuesday. She's modeling her "B" for ya. 

She still fits into her 12-18 month clothes. 

She's not a big eater. At all.  She really could care less about food.  But she loves candy!  She'd eat candy 24/7 if we'd let her. 

She's still getting teeth.  When you don't get your first tooth until your 15 months old.. it kinda pushes back the whole schedule!  She's still waiting on her 4 eye teeth and those were doosey's with Adie. We've still got some sleepless nights ahead. =(

We love our little Joya Jae!  She's been such a fun, energetic, spunky little thing in her 2 short years.  I can't wait to see the little lady she becomes.  

Mommy, daddy and Adie love ya, Joya!

Happy Birthday Joya Jae! I can't believe you are 2 already. You are a spunky little girl and you always make Aunt Dina laugh.

Love you!

She's a cutie! I wanted to let you know that my baby boy, Elliot already weighs 21 pounds and is a little too chunky for the 12 month clothes. My God it would be cute to see Elliot and Joya together... just for the perspective. Hope you are feeling well!

Happy Birthday's fun to read about her. Since our kids are close in age it feels like sometimes you're talking about mine. =) So cute that she jabbers all the time. Mak used to do that then all of a sudden he just started saying little sentences...she will have SO much to say soon that you can understand!! =)
