Thursday was Lakin's 2nd birthday. My mom was in town for the week so she got to spend the day with Grandma, which was such a treat for her. Grandma was the shining star all week, Lakin wanted Grandma to get her out of the car, change her diaper, kick balloons with her, come with her for bedtime, get her milk, pretty much all things Grandma- ALL THE TIME. My mom is awesome with Lakin and it was so fun to watch the two of them together.
Our little girl is so good at loving people. She's never met a stranger who hasn't become a friend and she showers those around her with attention and loving words. She really knows how to make a person feel cared for and I adore that about her. I can't wait to see this gift from God develop as she gets older. It's fun to see her with our family members who live far away. Some kids would be shy and take time to warm up but Lakin instantly loves those around her which makes for some quick transitions and loads of fun.
But, back to her birthday. I had an OB appointment and then had to work so before I left the house I made these yummy pancakes for a special birthday treat.
Chris and I got Lakin a Disney Princess dress up kit and some plastic princess high heels. I know, really feminist of me, huh? She loves them and I keep finding tiny, plastic, clip-on earring around the house.
