Elsie is Two!

Two years ago today, on July 9th, 2010 at 9:05 pm, our third little blessing, Elsie Miles Clifton, was born- (only 7 days past her due date)!

Being introduced to her big brother and sister!

My sweet baby girl

In the past two years she has provided us with so many precious moments, memories, and lots of laughter! She has gone from being the perfect little baby that never cried, slept through the night at just a few days old, and always smiling, to our adorable, feisty, sassy and hilarious daughter. She keeps us entertained daily with the stuff that she says and does, and when she is around you can be certain that you will not be bored!
We spent Elsie's big day celebrating her and doing what she wanted to do. She started the day with snuggling her two new Minnie Mouses she got for her birthday while watching Yo Gabba Gabba, ate some birthday pancakes, played outside all day, and then had some pizza (one of her favorites!).

Birthday Pancakes!

At two years old Elsie loves Minnie Mouse, singing, dancing, playing with her Barbies and baby dolls, watching Yo Gabba Gabba, playing outside, giving hugs and the girl loves to eat.  Her brother and sisters are her best friends, and she especially loves to pick on them as often as possible (she gets this honest from her Papaw Fred's side of the family!).

One of my favorite parts of every single day is at night after we say our prayers she always says, "I wanna rock you mama," and so I rock my baby girl in the rocking chair in her room while she holds her blankie and cuddles up to me. She, (like all children), is growing way too fast so I will take full advantage of my time rocking her as long as she will let me.  Because. . . at one moment you have this:

then you blink and they are one:

and the next thing you know they are TWO years old!

Happy birthday, sweet little Els! We love and are so proud of you!
