Easter Sunday was Fiona's 2nd Birthday, and everyone came over to our house for some ham and chocolate cake - what a great combo!
It was a very nice time, and Fiona had a lot of fun with her cousins. We have some pictures that we'll post, but first we had to put this video out here. It's from the night of her birthday, & I think it pretty much speaks for itself. This little girl provides us with 95% of our daily entertainment.

Fiona continues to grown and change every day. She is still very independent and likes everything done her way. I have NO idea where she gets that from. She is a funny little girl who loves to laugh and sing, but also has a stubborn temper in her. I blame the Irish/German combination of genes!
Here are some new "tricks" of hers:
-mentioned singing. She can sing all the classic lullabies: ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Mary had a little Lamb, you name it. The words are very clear and some are in toddlerese, for example twinkle is actually winkle!
-she quickly adopts sayings that are entirely too old for her. She ran into the room to greet her parents the other evening and shouted "HEY GUYS!". Oh my word.
-running full speed everywhere and anywhere, usually while shouting over her shoulder "I'm running".
-making tea. She makes a lovely cup of tea with milk and sugar! Her play teaset is one of her favorite toys and with Irish/British grandparents she makes A LOT of tea. Of course, there are biscuits offered each time.
-sitting in a booster seat for meals rather than the highchair. I am sure a big girl bed is soon to follow, but I am not ready for that yet.
-walking up the stairs and down the last few without help
Here she is NOT liking a strawberry sundae from Dairy Queen. The shame!
Doing the stairs
Modeling this morning in her new Princess Fiona shirt I got her for her bday party at daycare
Stay tuned this weekend for her birthday/Easter pictures! Sniff sniff....
