My little sassy britches turned 2 on the 16th. Our Ryla adds so much personality and spunk to our family. I can't take her anywhere without someone commenting on how cute she is and the one question I get at least three times a week..."Where does she get that red hair?" In the last two months she has been talking up a storm. Her previous health issues slowed down her speech for awhile but now it seems that she is learning a new word every day. Her hair is finally starting to come in as well. It is going to be course, strawberry blonde, and curly. What a combo huh? She begins every morning calling out from her crib "Daddy Daddy." She then moves on to her 2 to 3 course meal for breakfast. She simply won't stop eating at any part of the day. A typical breakfast is 2 to 3 bowls of oatmeal or cereal. She is such a cuddler and will cuddle with anyone she meets. I often hear at bible class that she likes to just cuddle with whoever will hold her and watch what is going on. Right now she is climbing on everything!!! I just know she is going to be the child that breaks several bones throughout her childhood. She is still in 12 month clothes and is wearing a size 3 diaper (same as Noah) and size 5 shoe. She is going to be tiny!
We decided to start doing one birthday party a year between the three kids. Since she will more than likely not remember this birthday, we decided to give her a small family party this year. Cliff's mom was here along with Uncle Kevin and our dear friends the Colwells. I don't know I don't do it like this more often. It was so easy and she had a blast.
