Happy 2nd Birthday Maren!

Maren is two years old today. Henry could not wait to get Maren from her crib this morning. He got up about a half hour before Maren and he asked if we could get her from her crib about 20 times within that period. It was cute, (borderline annoying after the 10th time) but I was kinda surprised that he was as excited as he was about his little sister's birthday. And then I figured it out.

At about seven o'clock Henry busts through the their bedroom door yelling, "Happy Birthday Maren!" A second later he storms out of the room with his hands on his hips and a scowl on his face and yells out, "She doesn't look 2! She's not even big!" Poor guy. He was fully expecting to find Maren transformed into a walking, talking two-year-old.

Well, she's not walking at all and not talking much, but we for sure are not complaining. Rather we are counting our blessings as we look back and remember this past year with our sweet girl. Happy Birthday Maren Jane!

Here's a video of our little birthday celebration Sunday night. (Don't be jealous of my awesome singing-- especially when my voice cracks whilst attempting to hit that high note.)
