Amelia and Caroline turn two!
We celebrated their birthday on Memorial Day with the Purinton family in WaKeeney.
Caroline was so shy while everyone was singing!
Katie was ready to help blow out candles which is actually only fair because Chloe blew out Gabi's 4th birthday candles. So I guess Katie was looking out for her big sister :)
Caroline finally got the hang of it!
Amelia and Caroline,
You are funny, funny, FUNNY girls. You both usually have smiles on your faces and if you don't then it's probably because you aren't getting your way. You both are stubborn, you both are ornery, you both are FAST when trying to run away with something you aren't supposed to have. Caroline, you wear your expressions on your face. Your eyebrow expressions can give your thoughts away in a heartbeat. Amelia, we have nicknamed you our 'honeybadger' because 'you just don't care' what stands in your way--you will overcome it. You don't care if you have shoes on, you will walk on rocks to get where you want to go. You don't care if a chip has been in the trash, if you are hungry you will get it out and eat it. Lord only knows where that determination will lead you in life!
But there is not a single day that goes by that I don't call you "my sweet girls". Having you has given us more challenges than we thought we could handle and more joy than we probably deserve. We love our family so very much. Isaac can now tell you apart. He used to just call you both "Sweetie" but for about two months he has really learned who each of you are. I ask him if he looks at your earrings and he says "No, their heads". I believe him. And Chloe is the best big sister to you both. She plays, gets tortured, and loves you like a second mommy.
Anything or anybody is a jungle-gym!
When either of you have something you aren't supposed to have, you run as fast as you can with it behind your back (even if I am actually behind you and can see the item in clear view) then you hide it from me, usually with your sister helping you scheme. All of the giggling and squealing is usually a dead give-away. And it makes me giggle too.
Happy Birthday, my sweet girls.
We can't believe you are T W O !
