Happy 2nd Birthday Chandler Rose!

This birthday has really been getting to me the past few weeks...  Our baby turning two means that pretty much we don't actually have a baby anymore.  I have gone almost everywhere the last 5+ years with a baby on my hip and I know that season is coming to an end VERY soon.  With that being said, luckily Chandler still has a lot of baby in her and I still hold her ALOT!  Sooo, enough about me, here's what our big birthday girl is up to at TWO years old:

-She truly is part baby/part irrational toddler!  She lets me hold her and rock her every morning and night, she wants to be carried around the house half the time (usually when I am trying to do something productive such as making meals or doing laundry) and is very much a lover.  Then there are other times when she is throwing a complete tantrum that we have absolutely no idea why because she can't talk yet.  She wants to walk everywhere in public by herself and refuses to hold my hand most of the time.  She threw an epic tantrum the other day because Sterling was sitting in the yellow chair and Chandler usually sits in the yellow chair and she was MAD!!!   She threw yet another major tantrum a few days ago because I would not let her wear a bathing suit for the day!
-She THINKS she is one of the big kids.  She tries so hard to keep up with Brayden and Sterling and wants to do everything they do.  This includes the monkey bars....Brian and I have had to dart out of the house to the back of the backyard after seeing that Chandler has climbed to the top and is getting ready to do the monkey bars (which obviously would be a very bad situation being that she can't actually do the super high monkey bars by herself) When we run down there she laughs and laughs like its the funniest thing and like she knows she is totally playing us!
-She absolutely adores Brayden and Sterling.  She is always chasing after them, loves to hug and love  on them, and often cries for them/at their doors if she wakes up from her nap before them.
-Chandler is our biggest finger sucker yet, she is always sucking away on that thumb!
-Her favorite word is "BABY" and she loves her baby just as Sterling loves hers.  We have tried to keep baby just in her crib but she will pull it through the slats and if she can't do that she will stand next to her crib and cry for baby.  She walks through the house crying for baby if she can't find it and usually baby helps when she is having a meltdown.  She holds baby in one hand and automatically pops her thumb in her mouth with the other.
-She loves to read books and has lately gotten very particular with what books we read to her.  Usually if we choose her a book she'll tell us "no, no" and she will pick a book of her liking.  She is also very into characters and princesses.  If she sees another kid with a princess or character (particularly hello kitty, peppa pig, dory, or elmo) she will go up to them and point at/touch their shirt, water bottle. backpack etc. and get super excited.  She knows Elsa and Anna's names even though she has never seen the movie and will say them over and over.  
-She loves wearing dress up clothes and is OBSESSED with shoes.  Her shoes, Dress up shoes, the kids shoes, mine and Brian's shoes, she is always bringing me another pair of shoes to put on her.  
-Chandler loves animals, whenever she sees one she usually does her version of barking (whether it is a dog or not!) but she will mooo when she sees a cow
-She has been a lot more observant in the car lately (which if you know us, you know Chandler spends a lot of time in the car) Lately she has been getting particularly excited when she sees "bus, bus!" Pumpkins! and balloons (like at car dealerships and those big hot air balloons a lot of people have been using lately to advertise)
-She is like the rest of us and has a major sweet tooth
-She DOESN'T LIKE:  Swimming lessons, sharing, when she does not get her way, the word NO, when she doesn't get to wear the shoes or clothes of her choice
-Sweet girl is going through a bit of separation anxiety from her mommy right now and has been having an especially hard time going to the kids club and church nursery when the big kids are not there and just recently to her bible study class which is still new to her.  She is so pathetic and sad when she cries for her "MOMMY!!!"

Here are a few pics of our TWO year old as of lately:

She is SO ticklish!

Yes I sometimes give in and get the girl a donut at HEB

Last sleep as a 1 year old! :(

Still such a snug bug!

Happiest Birthday our Precious Chandler Rose, so glad God chose us to be your parents!!!!!
