How do I even start to express what I feel today. My sweet little Kyndall, who gave me the best gift I could have, becoming a Mommy, is 2! Wow, they say time flies, but it has never flown faster than when I had Kyndall. Jim and I are so extremely blessed to have her in our lives. God blessed us with a very healthy, active, sweet, huggable, kissable, funny, smart, energetic, loyal, amusing, caring, helpful, tender-hearted, slightly bossy, beautiful, amazing little girl. She amazes us each day with her knowledge of new words, understanding of what is going on around her, interesting questions she asks us, and the way she completely loves and takes care of her sister. We love our little two year old so much and can't wait to see how she grows and matures even more.
Today we took her to the zoo for her official birthday. She told us she wanted to see a puma (we saw a mountain lion and didn't correct her when she called it a puma because there weren't any pumas there), a baby jaguar (again, no baby jaguars, but a bobcat looks an awful lot like a baby jaguar, and again we didn't correct her:), and she wanted to ride a choo choo train. We did accomplish her wish list (to some degree) and got to see a lot more interesting animals and things along the way. It was a great day, Kyndall was a sweet girl (only one small breakdown, when she thought we weren't going to ride the train, because it was so full we had to wait for it to run and come back) and Avery was of course a doll. We had so much fun on our first real family outing and can't wait to go on more together. Thanks Daddy for taking the day off to spend with your oldest daughter...it really made her day!

Looking at the Scarlet Macaw with Mommy! Kyndall was so excited because an episode of Diego is about this bird, and she got to see it!
