Yes, Miss Avery turned two today! She is a bundle of personality- curious, dramatic, funny, adorable, lovable, and I'm so glad she's mine!!
I always do a photoshoot of the kids on their birthdays. Please indulge me as I show off my beautiful girl!
We had two different "photoshoots" today, thus the outfit change!
Playing on the new playground Daddy just finished building!
And although I got lots of nice, smiling photos, I also got my share of those like the one above. I thought this one was particularly funny, since she's standing by the sign that says, "I'm 2". Believe me, this child is already well into the Terrible Twos, with tantrums galore!
However, she also gave me some wonderful little jumping photos next to her sign. (Try as I might, I could not get her to hold the sign, so propping it next to her had to suffice!)
All in all though, some sweet photos of my sweet, sweet girl!
(pink dress is from TJMaxx, gray tutu from BabyGap, lavender tank from Walmart, and gray flower from Michael's dollar section)
And, as promised, here is the topsy-turvy doll I made for Avery's birthday. This is the sleeping side...
...and this is the awake side.
She turned out really cute, and the pattern wasn't too difficult to follow, unlike other vintage patterns I've used.
So far, Avery unfortunately hasn't shown much interest in her, but I can't say I expected otherwise. She just isn't a "babydoll" girl yet. Hopefully, she'll grow into it, and if not, I'm happy to keep the doll all to myself- ha ha!!
Hope everyone's having a good summer's end. I can't believe school starts next week- Riley's headed off to kindergarten, and I'm secretly freaking out- how did my baby get to be so big???
