Leila turned 2 this weekend (the 25th). To this day it is amazing she has only been with us for 2 years as I feel she has been a part of my life for a lifetime and at the time I am hoping time slows down she is growing up so fast. Just recently she is starting to talk more. I am still concerned at her amount of words being so low but she has always gone at her own pace so I am not as overly concerned as I was 6 months ago. Plus there is some family history of late talkers so I am comforted by that.
My tradition for Leila’s birthday is to make her a birthday dress. This years was perfect timing I volunteered to be a tester for this pattern and when I was picked it was just before Leila’s birthday. The dress was done two hours before we left to go to my parents for the birthday weekend. Perfect timing indeed. I have a lot of pictures to wade through (600!) but here are a few of my favorites so far.
