We had a great weekend celebrating Coco! She woke up to balloons on the couch which is apparently all a 2 year old needs for their birthday.
We went to church after some breakfast. Coco picked out her outfit for church which consisted on a pink princess dress and a pink winter vest with a fur hood. She wore the vest, hood and all, throughout the entire 3 hours church service. We also made some cookies for her to bring for her friends in nursery. I didn't know that she would really understand but I could tell she was feeling really special.
After church, during Coco's nap, Amelia and I wrapped Coco's presents (mostly from Yia-yia and Auntie Linzi) and made her cake. Amelia LOVES baking so this was really fun to do together.When Coco was up from her nap it was present time and Amelia couldn't wait to give her the present she picked out. She really thought hard about it and was so happy for Coco to have it. These two really love each other.
After presents was the cake. This was my first time making a cake with layers, so I wasn't sure how the inside would come out. Amelia picked out all the colors and she did the polka dots on the outside of the cake with Brian's help. I think it turned out so cute for our first cake together.We made a small cake becauseI didn't really want a ton of cake leftover....I would be the one that eats it.
If you look close you can see frosting on Coco's eye. She really dug in .
After our little celebration we went to the beach. Coco got some new beach toys so we had to try them out. We had the perfect evening hanging out at the beach, water fighting, and checking out crabs followed by ice cream of course.
Coco is a two year old through and through. She is so fantastically funny and quirky. She has a great sense of humor and imagination. She loves hard and gives attitude like i've never seen. She is smart, bossy, shy (at times), and so loving. All of her emotions are very big in a tiny little body. Everyday when I pick her up at the gym daycare she drops whatever she is doing and runs full force for a hug. She is caring and loves her sister so much. She calls Amelia "Mel Mel" and usually says it a yell. I hope that never changes. Coco is a doer and I know she is going to be successful in whatever she does...or she'll at least be the life of the party. Love you Coco!
