28 & 2

It has been an incredibly busy weekend at our house - full of birthday celebrations! Justin turned 28 yesterday and Jordyn turned 2 yesterday!

We still cannot believe that Jordyn is 2 years old. I remember every detail of the day of her arrival, and it does not seem real that it was 2 years ago!

We celebrated Friday with Justin's family, yesterday with just the 4 of us, and today with my family! Whew! We're exhausted and all partied out! We have so many pictures to share! (I took 81 but won't share them all!) Here's a few for Jordyn's 2 year old post, and I'll hopefully get more posted soon! :)

How fun for Justin and Jordyn to share a birthday! :)
Working on showing the #2 with her fingers. :) She can tell you how old she is, she just can't show it on her fingers yet. :)

What is Jordyn up to?

Jordyn ...

... weighs about 30 pounds. We will know her exact information on Tuesday when we go to her wellness check.

... wears size 4 diapers.

... wears 24-month and 2T clothes and size 7 or 8 shoes.

... does not stop talking!

... has 20 teeth. She has had this many for the last 4 months, but I don't think that I have put that in her updates. Unfortunately, she has been putting those teeth to use at daycare. Last week she bit kids on 2 different days. :( I hope that comes to an end soon. Justin and I felt awful about it.

... has to wear make up each day, and after I put the fake make up on her, she says "I'm Beautiful."

... loves to sing! Some of her favorite songs to sing are The ABC's, Jesus Loves Me, Twinkle Twinkle, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, and This Old Man.

... continues to be a wonderful big sister! She loves to sit with Jayla on the floor and hold her hand or share toys with her! We love it!

... usually wakes up saying "Good Morning!" It's adorable, and it makes it a little (just a little) easier to roll out of bed, even when it's early on a Saturday morning. :)

... has been on a horrible eating kick lately. She doesn't eat. The other day she grabbed her plate at daycare (right after they gave it to her), and she walked it to the garbage, threw it all away, and said "all done." Normally they catch her before she does something like that, but they turned their back for a second and she threw it away. They offered her more, but she wouldn't take it. She isn't eating for at home either ... not even her favorite snacks! When she does eat, some of her favorites are: string cheese, yogurt, juice, milk, fruit snacks, Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, pizza, ham, and ice cream.

... knows that she can help Jayla if we can't get to her immediately. She runs over to hug her or give her a paci if she is sad. She has such a caring heart.

... is still sleeping in her crib about 11-12 hours a night. She has taken 1 nap in her big girl bed, but since she does so well in the crib, we don't really want to change that right now!

... loves her "Bett Fav" jersey! She can't wait until Sundays to wear her Vikings jersey and match her daddy's clothes! I had a cute outfit picked out for her party today, but she wanted nothing to do with it. She knew it was a football day and had to have the jersey!

... still loves our Elmo Pad (Ipad). She does an awesome job at playing Memory and putting puzzles together. She also can run YouTube quite well, which isn't always a good thing!

... continues to amaze us every day with what she knows! It is so much fun to watch how children are like a sponge and soak up absolutely everything! We are so proud of her!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Jordyn! We love you so much!

And ... Happy 28th Bitrthday, Justin! The girls and I love you lots!
