Because I am two...

Our youngest sweetheart Jena is blossoming! It has been a journey for us these past two years helping Jena grow and develop. It hasn't always been easy but definitely it has always been joyous! Her smile will melt your heart and she is almost always smiling. Now that Jena has turned two she has decided that there are some big girl things that she can and will do. Such as....

Standing up in the wagon on "trail rides" with daddy.



And in the grocery cart with mommy...



Because she is two she has decided that she does in fact like bath time. (Thank goodness!)


And most importantly because she is two Jena has decided to start walking! (I know this is just a pic, but trust me on this one ;)


Jena has also started becoming more involved with her sisters, watching them like hawks, copying them and sometimes even joining in on their play. She's becoming more vocal about what she likes and doesn't. She has become attached to a stuffed animal for the first time, which she affectionately calls "beer" (it's a pink bear). In addition to her new found love of baths she has become absolutely obsessed with water in general. She doesn't cry when I do her hair anymore because I let the tap water in the sink trickle and she's captivated. She and Jill will spend forever with a set of cups pouring water from one to another and the water table in the backyard is by far her favorite. In general our life loving girl is coming out of her shell and we are pleased as punch at her progress! Here is a quick video of her birthday song...
