My baby is 2!

I am a little late, but on Sunday my sweet Gigi turned 2! (and if you're lucky, she'll tell you!)

I am literally tongue-tied about what to say. She is our fourth baby. She came 9 years after the first child and 4 1/2 years after the third. I was done with diapers and potty training and almost had my third child in school. I was sleeping soundly through the night. I thought I was finished with all that goes along with babies!

Then, a little over two years ago, I found out Gigi was on the way! Hubby and I were happy and our kiddos were excited too! Our son even told us he had been praying for a baby sister, BEFORE we told him!

The last two years have held sleepless nights, diaper rashes, stomach viruses, ear infections, ear tubes and more. Potty training is on the horizon, too. Irregardless, the last two years have been AMAZING. The giggles, the laughter, the smiles, the hugs, the cuddles, the kisses, it is ALL worth it!

Gigi, we thank God for entrusting you to us! We can't wait to see what is in store for your life!

Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Wishing your baby girl a belated but hopefully a scent-sational 2nd birthday.
I can sympathize on finding peace and then surprise along comes a new baby. There is a 10 year difference between my two children.

Have a great day!
