Josie is Two!

Our sweet little angel is two!  I can hardly believe it.  It seems like yesterday that I was holding her in my arms on the day she was born in complete awe.


She has grown in leaps and bounds from that special day.


She is now a rambunctious, curious, happy toddler.  She is very quick to laugh and she is easily entertained by our goofy shenanigans.


While she loves to assert herself, exclaiming, “Josie do it,” she is very concerned that all her people surround her while she is exerting her independence.


Josie is so sweet with Grace it absolutely breaks my heart.  She will coo with her, high five her and even offer her favorite toys for a few seconds before snatching them away.


Her full belly laugh that she’s had since a baby is still going strong; may she always keep that laugh.  Her entire body seems to laugh as she giggles and giggles and giggles away.

Josie’s vocabulary is rapidly increasing as she begins to string words together.  I love to watch her mind absorb new experiences and take in the world with such wonder.


Her first word was “books” and that has remained her favorite word and activity.  Josie’s perfect day would be eating snacks while she “reads” books to all of us.

With that in mind, we threw her a small birthday party with just family and I set the table with foods that correlate to her favorite books.




She loved the table and had a big blast at the party.


Two years in and there isn’t a day that has gone by (even those tricky temper tantrum laden days) when we don’t absolutely, genuinely thank our lucky stars that she is here and our girl.


Happy second birthday sweet, sweet Josephine!

    Happy Birthday Josie! I love watching her and Olive growing up together and growing to be more and more important parts of each other’s lives. Olive was just talking about Josie in her crib today. I mean I wish she had been actually sleeping but if she is going to spend her whole nap chatting, talking about Josie and her birthday party is a pretty great topic. Love your girls and happy 6 month to Grace too!
