Addie Louie just turned Two-ey!

Our little girlie had her 2nd birthday on Monday (Oct 11)! Its so weird to me how sometimes she just seems like my little tiny baby, and other times she's a big girl.

Things that make her seem old:
-She is talking really well, and is constantly shocking us with the words and phrases that she already knows. You can have a pretty interesting conversation with this girl!
-She is mostly potty trained, which is awesome! We're saving a pretty good chunk of money by not having to buy diapers at the moment. I haven't changed a diaper in 6 weeks!
-She likes to do everything herself. She feeds herself, climbs into her car seat herself, and tries to put her clothes on by herself.

Things that make her seem little:
-She still loves her paci. She wants to have it ALL THE TIME! It drives me nuts! Especially since I give in a lot because of the exhausted state I'm in. I am proud to say that today, she's only had her paci at nap time!
-She still uses a juice cup. We could probably break her of this habit, but to be honest, I don't really see the need.

So, in true Eric and Sarah fashion, we don't have many pictures to post from her birthday. That's partly because she wouldn't sit still, so I got tired of trying, but here are a few:

How old am I...

I was laughing the other day because I have a friend who likes to cross stitch, and for me, cross stitch has always been something you did at a young women's activity once or twice in your life...not an actual hobby. Then I realized what I was doing as a laughed thinking about this friend in her twenties cross stitching in her spare time...I was knitting!! What is the matter with me? Somewhere in the last 5 years I've become an old woman. I enjoy crocheting and knitting...its true! Our little family went to the Roundhouse Festival back in August and I saw some older ladies sitting in the corner talking and knitting, and I thought,"I wish I could do that." So, I realize its a bit odd, but I wanted to learn to knit, so I did, and I finished my first project. Its actually my second project, but the first isn't actually worth mentioning, so we'll just skip right over it. I am by no means a professional knitter, but I'm proud of the teeny tiny little blanket I made, my kids and husband are proud of it, and hopefully our little Ellie Bean (who will be making her appearance in the next 4 weeks!!) will love it too!
In these pictures you can see where I was paying too much attention to the show I was watching and accidentally switched the stitch, but that just gives it more character, right?!
