HAPPY BIRTHDAY, P'NUT!

today is penelope's birthday, which is cause enough for a celebratory sunday post.

she is two.  she says 'pingo' instead of 'mango.'  she says 'nank' instead of 'thanks.'  she says 'washwash' instead of 'washcloth.'  she is always crying that her 'eyes burm,' which no one really knows the meaning of.  she is fiercely independent, stubborn as all get-out, and not a physical touch kid.  she is goofy goofy goofy.  her hair is a wild, wild mess.  she runs like a drunk.  she makes me laugh every. stinkin. day.

i frequently think back to how things might have gone very, very differently and i am so grateful to have her in my life.  days would be too quiet and boring without this one:




















this photo accurately sums up where we are now: independent, reading a book, wearing her own choice of shoes.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY SWEET LITTLE DAUGHTER!

I LOVE that little girl SO MUCH! She reminds me so much of you (with your love for books) and Lauren (with her keen sense of fashion and goofy humor)when you were each 2 years old. Penelope is truly a unique spirit and a joy beyond compare to her YAYA and POPPY. Happy birthday to our precious p-nut!
