Happy Birthday, Liza!

Lizy is 2! I loved celebrating her. Liza is a girl that knows what she wants and isn't afraid to get it. She'll tell anyone off anytime and anywhere. She is passionate and driven. She's got what it takes to be the next President of the United States! That's saying a lot for a 2 year old. Her birthday was a hit! She's so dang cute...

We went outside for a little photoshoot. It was a beautiful day for February!...











 Then we had a little party....
 And she was spoiled rotten...
 Caleb wanting a little kiss, but Liza not having it!...
 She loves her daddy...
 She got a little shy and embarrassed when we sang to her, but when it was time to blow out the candles, she was excited!...

 I made a wish that she would take it easy on my during her next year...
 Her fan club...

 She was blowing that horn all night...
 And so was he...
 Cutest sisters...
 She got 2 new phones. She loves to carry them in her purse and walk around all day with them...
 She was not loving talking Elmo. It was hilarious!...
 Smash came too...
 Happiest Birthday sweet Liza Lou!...

Some fun facts about Eliza:

-She calls any womanly figure who is remotely taking care of her, "Mommy"
-She talks so much and it is sooooo cute. I love her words that she learns every day.
-She is absolutely hilarious!
-She climbs on EVERYTHING. It's terrible! She's almost never on the ground.
-My favorite things she says are: "Day Doo" (thank you), "Lu Doo Too" (love you too), "Dum Peez" (gum please) and "Ew". "Gare"(Claire), "Tal"(Cal), "Nanie"(Janie), "Ify"(Ivy) She knows lots lots more, but those are the cutest and funniest.
-She knows other animal sounds besides just roaring now, so that's good. She used to just roar at any and every animal, but now she's learning the sounds. Except for bunnies. She meows when she sees those. We're learning.
-She yells at me. A lot. Dinnertime is the worst.
-She loves shoes.
-She loves to eat. When she's done with her food, she likes to climb onto the table and finish off everyone else's!
-She gives the best hugs and kisses and she has the most beautiful lips.
-She loves Minnie Mouse and her blankies.

Eliza is a really hard kid. Not hard to love. She's so easy to love. She's hard because if I relax while she's awake, she will make a mess no matter what. If she is being quiet and you're not sure what she is doing, it is with 100% certainty that she is either coloring on the walls, coloring on the couch, painting her "nails", eating paint, painting Janie's bed, eating candy on the counter top, rubbing toothpaste on the bathroom mirror, putting gel in her hair, dipping her gum in the toilet and drinking it, spilling yogurt/milk/cottage cheese/everything on the couch, throwing everyone's shoes everywhere, putting on lipstick and mascara on, washing her hands with the entire container of soap, trying to take off her poopy diaper, holding down the water button on the fridge until there is a puddle covering the floor under and surrounding the fridge and much much much more. All of those things have happened MANY times. Before I had Eliza, I thought I was SUPER MOM! My other kids were never little terrorists like her! She's so mischievous and busy! The only way to keep her from doing something crazy is if I tied her to a tree. She's nuts! And she's fast! She knows when I start nursing, she gets free reign. It's something new every day and I am constantly chasing her around. She kills me, but I wouldn't change her for the world!

Lizy makes my life better and brighter and happier. She's a wild and exciting free spirit. She gives the cutest smiles and does a little jig anytime she's excited about something. I adore her and am beyond thankful she's mine. Happy Birthday to my beautiful Eliza Faye!
