There Is Something Wrong With Time

I really don't know how my BABY, my 3rd and LAST child grew to this... And then another blink and she's turned into this:
My Baby Girl, the Monkey, Ms. D is TWO YEARS OLD.
I marked her height on her growth chart this morning. She's grown 2 1/2 inches in 6 months. She's a good 3 1/2 inches shorter than M was at her age...and an inch shorter than her brother was at two. She's probably average-sized, but to me seems small in comparison to her siblings. Yes, I know I'm not supposed to compare. It happens.
We went outside to take the annual birthday photo shoot in Mom's old outfit but D wasn't really interested in cooperating. I'll try again tomorrow to get a few more good shots of her. What I love about these two photos is that D has her hands clasped the same way in both shots. The more things change...
I didn't spend much time with D today. I was running our garage sale. We had her party last weekend so it's not like we didn't celebrate, but I feel a bit guilty. D had a great day hanging out with Daddy all by herself though so I think that was a wonderful present for her to have Daddy all to herself. They went to the bank this morning and D's cuteness earned her several admiring compliments and almost earned her a new piggy bank, but alas, they were out of banks. She got 4 stickers instead. Later they went to buy some salt for our water softener. The manager of the store happened to be near the registers when Craig was buying the salt and the manager told the cashier to give him a discount because D was so cute. Ha ha ha ha! He gave us a $2.35 discount for our cute daughter. That never happens when I'm out with her...but people do comment about how cute she is all the time. They're probably thinking she must be adopted. But she's not. Craig and I make adorable kids. It's true. It's just a darn shame that I couldn't seem to birth them naturally.

I am so blessed to have D and her siblings.
Happy birthday Monkey Girl!

Ohmygoodness! Two already? I think kids change so much from one to two. She's a sweetie.

I love the birthday pictures you do. So clever.
