The Bean is 2!

Ask Layla what her name is and she promptly answers, "It's Layla Bean." She literally thinks Bean is part of her name.  I've tried telling her else wise but she's 2 and she knows everything. Duh.

But Layla, how can you possibly be 2 already?!  The last 2 years were literally the fastest 2 years of my life.  You have grown from a sweet itty bitty baby to this sweet, sassy, hilarious little woman.  

You adore your brother. ADORE.  He's just as much your best friend as you are his.  You pretty much play whatever Brady wants to play and you think Brady is the funniest and greatest person alive. But you put him in his place too. And it's hilarious.

You have such a zest for life and I love seeing the way you view things.

I never knew how much I would love having a little girl. I love how you want to put little necklaces on and have your hair done. I couldn't imagine life without you.

You're such a smart little cookie too. You speak in full sentences and the things that come out of your mouth sometimes baffle me. Like deciding to call a guy "stinky" at a restaurant or telling me exactly what happened in a Thomas movie. Sometimes I never know what to expect from you!  And the fact that you've been using the potty since you were about 16 months? Awesome. Once we finally get settled in Colorado, I promise I'll fully potty train you.

And girlfriend, you love cake. And pretty much anything that is edible. It's yours and don't anyone dare get in the way of it.  

You're kind of a sass monster and have gone through the lovely "2's" nice and early. Hopefully we're over the worst of it (pretty please) but it's hard to be mad at that sweet little face. But holy emotions sometime. I think we may have a little bit of a drama queen on our hands.

You love babies. I had to peel you away from the baby we watched the other day. You were OBSESSED. But it's so sweet seeing you be so tender and loving with little ones.

Layla, you complete our family and we absolutely adore you. I feel so blessed to be your mama. You've taken it pretty easy on us and for that we're ever so grateful.  Please, please feel free to continue that!  We hope you have the happiest of birthdays and we love you to the moon and back Layla Bean (please don't ever change your name to Bean)! We can't wait to watch you grow! :)

Happy Birthday, Layla! Wouldn't it be funny if she married a guy with the last name "Bean"? Then her name really would be Layla Bean!
