Happy 2nd Birthday to Our Daughter Emme 12.16.11

Today our baby turns 2. Our sweet little Emme, who we welcomed into the world during the blizzard of 2009, is now two. It hardly seems possible.

Emme is such a miracle, and she has blessed our lives in ways we could have never imagined. She is our little athlete, and she loves to learn and talk talk talk. Just like her Mama! And her big sister. Scott and I are completely in awe of her, and we wanted to share a few photos that sum up who she is at this very moment.

Emme Ann Pringle. 7 pounds 8 ounces. This is how I still think of you.

My sweet little tiny baby who liked to sleep on my chest. Actually, you still do and that just melts me, even if I don't get much sleep at night.

As much as you are still a baby, you are getting so big. You love to get "horsey rides". (thanks to my intern Jocelyn for this amazing photo and the one at the end too!)

You melted Daddy's heart from day 1...

And your sweet little laugh still does. Even more.

How you go from this...

To this...

To this is just beyond me.

It really seems like yesterday that I first fell in love with you.

And now I love you so much more, my little jumping bean.

This year, you and Elsa played indoor soccer. You are SO good!

You love to climb. On everything. It keeps me on my toes.

And if you're not climbing, you're jumping. No wonder they call you Nadia Comaneci.

This fall you started school. You are doing so great and learning so much.

You're learning your letters...

And soon you'll be a "Super Reader"...

Just like your big sister.

Emme you are beautiful.

And you have such a zest for life.

You remind me to enjoy the simple things.

Thank you for that.

You also remind me that anything is possible. Ride a dinosaur - why not!?!

And that all you need is love. You LOVE animals.

Santa, not so much. Only from a distance.

The snowman had you smiling again.

Happy birthday baby girl!

You completed our family and we are so thankful. Love, Mommy and Daddy
