Lyla at 2 years old

So Lyla is now TWO years old! I cannot believe it. These 2 years have flown by! We have so much fun watching her and just loving her!!! She is so very different from our boys and truly a joy!!!

We had a Fiesta Birthday party at our house. We invited our families and had a great time eating tacos & cake outside.

Two silly brothers who love their little sister more than I could have ever imagined. They may fight with each other and they may not be the sweetest to everyone, but with Lyla they are totally different. They would do anything for her!

Lyla's cousins on my side...

Poor Diego! ok, so the Fiesta was inspired by Lyla's obsession with Dora. Scott & boys picked out the pinata. He was the size of about a 5 year old boy. Before the party started it was really strange seeing him hanging in the trees. Lyla was not too sure about hitting him, but she finally realized he had candy inside and got into the action.

Lyla really got it with the whole present thing. She loved opening everything and I think we now own just about every Dora thing out there :-)

Happy Birthday Baby! We love you!!!
