Audrey is 2!

Sweet Audrey it's so hard to believe 2 whole years have already flown by. You are suppose to still be the baby of the family and now you seem so big compared to Caleb. You are a ball of spunk. You have so much personality it can barely be contained. You are loud, wild, and love to put on a show but you can also be a total watcher and sit in the background just observing things quietly around you. You understand so much and you love to mimic what you see others doing...which can be both good and bad!

You are so sweet and snuggly and still very much love to be held.

You also love to run away...very fast.

You love to be right in the middle of whatever is going on. This picture just captures it perfectly. Whatever Hunter and Madison are doing you are right there trying to keep up and will often position yourself so that they have no choice but to include you. 

You are a great eater. You rarely turn down food and will try anything. You especially love condiments. 

You tell long drawn out stories of mostly jibberish. You speak in full sentences so fast that we usually only catch a word or two that we can actually comprehend. 

Did I mention you have a big personality? Either happiest or saddest in the room. You remind me a lot of Hunter at this age except you do have a quiet watchful side to you and you self entertain so well. 

You very much love to be at the table drawing... all day. Anytime we are doing school you want to be at the table using all the same books and supplies that we are using. 

You love animals. Anytime we see an animal you scream with excitement and run over to it. 

You have a love hate relationship with gymnastics. They let you join the 2 year old class when you were 1.5 because you always wanted to be out on the floor doing what Madison was doing. But now that you are officially in the class you want to be in my lap over on the side OR you want me to be out there carrying you on the floor. Somedays all you need is a few minutes to warm up to the idea and then you take off and join your class. 

You love to wear pretty dresses, shoes and bows. I think Sunday might be your favorite day. 

You love it when I paint your nails and toes.

You LOVE to be tickled and you love to tickle others. Sometimes you come up and stick your neck out and say "tickle" so we will tickle you. Then you run off and laugh and then come back for more.

You have no fear, much like Madison at this age, you will climb and jump off of anything. You learned how to jump and actually get off the ground recently and you will often call out "MOMMA!!" and then when I look up you will jump over and over again saying "jump" with a proud look on your face. 

You are one of a kind sweet girl and not a day goes by that you don't make us laugh and just fall in love with you more and more. You are so full of life and so full of joy and we feel so blessed to be chosen to raise you. You are so special to us and we love you more than you could ever know.
