Happy 2nd Birthday Autumn!

Autumn turns 2 years old.

Our little fireball turns 2 years old today (March 18, 2012). We love you Autumn and are excited to celebrate this wonderful day with you!

From the onset of the pregnancy through the present, Autumn exhibits a tendency to pave her own path through life. She enters a room, a pool, a slide, a ladder, just about anything with confidence and no fear. She looks for a challenge to overcome because, well, her brother does it. She loves Ethan very much and learns so much from him. There is no rivalry with these two, just constant support to be good at what you do.

She knows what she wants and works towards getting it. Sometimes she breaks down and cries and other times she just persists and persists. She does it in very cute way that, truthfully, is so hard to resist.

At the age of 2 Autumn enjoys singing, dancing, taking care of her baby dolls, swinging, swimming (a lot), choosing her own clothes to wear, taking apart her brother’s Lego and Lincoln Log creations, and reading to name a few.

As parents, we work hard to provide her with best so she can develop to be a healthy, happy, inquisitive, passionate, loving, and, just the darndest best little girl we could hope for. So far, so good!

With family and friends we celebrate her life today. We wish our little girl a very happy birthday! We love you!

Her arrival on March 18, 2010 is documented in this post.

Here are some of our favorite images of Autumn over the past two years that capture her wonderful personality.
