Two Years Ago......

we were welcoming Cydney into this world. The past two years have brought us so much joy and many heartwarming moments. We are blessed to have a sweet, smart, poliet and caring daughter. Couldn't ask for better. It has been a blessing to have someone to spend my days and nights with while Jared has been deployed, TDY or just working a late night. She certainly has both of us wrapped around her finger, especially Jared.

We are amazed at how fast she picks up new words, concepts and sayings. She will tell you her full name when asked, counts to 14 easily still needs help with 15-20 sometimes, knows all her letters, colors and shapes. Cydney loves Elmo, monkeys and books. She enjoys going to the library for story time and getting to sing songs and dance. Next week she is starting a weekly gymnastics class, and maybe swim lessons in the near future. Her favorite songs to sing are ABC's and Twinkle Twinkle, she also can be heard singing along with the radio in the car. Cydney loves to help push the shopping cart through the store. You will usually find her under me pushing the cart from the bottom.

Here are some of my favorite pictures over the last two years:

We were happy to be able to spend a week with Grandparents and Aunts, who all came out to Vegas for Cydney's Birthday Celebration. Turned into a week affair, getting gifts from everyone and enjoy a couple cakes. Cydney learned how to make Grandma Jodie's Chocolate Cake, and enjoyed helping mix the ingredients. Even if the first one did not turn out looking so great it was still fun to make and delicious to eat. Cydney received a play kitchen for her birthday and has enjoyed playing with it since. Every morning she wakes up and wants to make pancakes. It is fun to just sit back and watch her play and see her imagination developing daily.

Until next time,
