Evie's Second Birthday

Last Friday my darling girl turned two whole years old.
Her Daddy and I took the day off work to hang out with our girl for her special day!  Despite rain and freezing cold temperatures we had a good day! 
I made some delicious, if I do say so myself, cinnamon rolls (recipe to come) for breakfast. We put a candle on hers and a balloon on her chair to make it special. She was excited about the balloon and confused by the candle. Then we headed out to the Children's Museum of Memphis. CMOM was our second choice (we wanted to go to the Zoo) and our visit reaffirmed why we are members of the Zoo instead. It was a little run down looking and while there was a toddler area it was pretty lame. I think once Evie is older (maybe 4 or so) it will be worth to have in the winter, but right now she's not tall enough to do a lot of the stuff. After lunch at 5 Guys and naptime we took Evie to build-a-bear for the first time. She was a little overwhelmed by all the stuffed annimals because baby girl LOVES stuffed animals, but in the end she picked and dressed (ie we picked and dressed) a sweet little puppy dog and named her Cinnamon we took her to dinner at Newk's. All in all it was a great day and we can't wait for her party tomorrow!

PS: Pictures like this are what happens when the lighting is super crappy and you have a toddler who refuses to look at the camera. Unless you bribe her with cake!
* Bonus points if you can name that movie. Toddler moms UNITE!
** Ignore her mouth full of food. That's what you get when you ask for a toddler to say CHEESE when she's got a mouthful of it already. Oops.
