Chloe's Two Year Stats

We had Chloe's two year check-up on Monday and here are her stats:

Weight: 21.03 lbs 0.86 percentile
Length: 32.75 in 23rd percentile
Head:18.5 in 36th percentile

The doctor said that she was healthy and as long as she is growing we shouldn't be too concernced about her weight. But hey, at least we are not off the charts yet!

Chloe's Second Birthday

Chloe turned two yesterday and we had a big party for her at my mom's house. Chloe had all of her grandparents/great grandparents there except one and she was in heaven being with them all at the same time.

It's so crazy to think that she is already two! These past two years have just flown by. Chloe is such a smarty-pants and she surprises us every day with the things that she knows and says. Some of her favorite things right now are babies, toy food/dishes, books, singing and playing with her mommy, daddy and grandmas and grandpas. She is using full sentences and using I, me, mine, etc. when she is talking about herself. However, she still doesn't like to eat anything but peanuts, oranges, cheese and...candy.

At her party we played pin the nose on the clown and took we even bowled! Then she was bombarded with a ton of gifts and stuffed herself with cake and ice cream. We all had a blast and were wiped out by the end of the evening.

Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us and for all the great gifts!

Chloe's Photo Shoot

Since Chloe is turning 2 this Saturday, I thought I would take her out to take her two year old photos. The only problem with the shoot was that there were just too many dang cute pictures to choose. Here are a few of my favorites. Isn't she just so dang cute?!

I am a Child of God

The other day, Chloe and I were playing in her room waiting for Aaron to come home from work and Chloe starts to sing the song "I am a Child of God." I had my phone close by, so I grabbed it and recorded her singing (which explains the poor quality of this video). Of course, when I go and get my actual camera, she refuses to sing, but at least I have something.

She never ceases to amaze me with what she learns and remembers. We sing her this song when she goes to bed or when she gets a bonk and needs to be comforted, but she has never sung it before.

Here are the lyrics to the part of the song that she is singing.

Lead me, guide me, walk besideme.

Help me find the way.

Teach me all that I must do.

To live with him some day.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Looking back on 2009, I realize how blessed Aaron and I have been. We have a beautiful and healthy daughter, we both have good jobs, Aaron made it through two rounds of layoffs at work, we were able to sell our condo in three days and buy a new town home, our parents live close enough that they can watch Chloe while I work and most especially, we have the Gospel in our lives. With all of our blessings, we can't help but know that we have a loving Heavenly Father who watches over and blesses us.

This year, we spent New Year's Eve at my parents house. We played games, ate food and did sparklers at midnight. And yes, Chloe stayed up until midnight and was a happy camper the whole night. She is such a night owl.

Jumpin' Jacks

It was my niece Kadence's 4th birthday on the 28th and for it, she had a party at Jumpin' Jacks. It is a warehouse filled with huge bouncy toys. There are slides, obstacle courses, and a bouncy toy just for small kids.
The best part about it is that it is not only for kids- adults get to jump too! I'm not sure who had more fun jumping- Chloe, me or maybe my mom? We had so much fun we might even have Chloe's birthday there. She had a great time and didn't want to leave.

The whole family was still in town for Christmas so it made the event tons of fun. I got a good scrape on my arm and ripped out a huge chunk of hair while racing Tawna, but it was worth it.
