Happy Birthday Princess!

I can't believe my little girl is two years old today! Before we knew we were having a girl, I thought I wanted two boys - but I'm so glad I have a little princess to do girlie things with. It's amazing how much her little personality has already developed. She's a girlie-girl to the nth degree. Everything sparkly, ruffley or pretty is her kind of thing. She loves babies and fairies and cuddly things and getting dressed up. I'd say I have no idea where it came from (because I'm really not a girlie-girl) but, as my mom points out, she is an awful lot like her Aunt Kristen.

Here she is at one day old - my "tiny" 9 pounder:

and here she is yesterday at her birthday party:

I made (of course) the outfit she's wearing. The top is the Modkidboutique Kyoko pattern in Tinkerbell fabric and the white capris are a Simplicity pattern but I shortened them and added a cuff (that you can't see). I didn't notice that the obi had drifted south before we took the picture (I think I'm adding a little strip of velcro to the top and the front center of the obi so that doesn't happen.)

  1. Best Wishes to the birthday girl! It goes so fast doesn't it? Still feel like mine was just born and she'll be turning two at the end of April.
