Well... I know I'm a bit behind on doing a post about Spicer's second birthday. This time of year is so busy that I'm just now getting around to it. Spicer Beth turned two on November 23. And, I must say, she is one very happy and spunky two year old!
We celebrated her birthday with a family party in our home. Throughout the entire party she kept singing, "Happy Birthday to you!" It was so cute! She was just so happy and excited about everything, especially the cupcake. I actually made the cupcakes this year. My first time to ever make a cupcake. Simple. Easy. Just the way I like it! We kinda had a little cowgirl theme for her party. I sent out cowgirl invitations, her cupcakes were topped with cowgirl toppers and the cupcake stand was made out of hay bales. That's about as far as the theme went. (We went to Branson the week before her party, so didn't have much time to do anything else. I'll post about the Branson trip later.) Oh, and Spicer wore her little cowgirl tutu! So cute!
Like I said, Spicer is so spunky. She's got a bright and shining personality (just like daddy). She loves to laugh and joke! Her and daddy are constantly joking around with each other. It cracks me up! She also love to run. I mean, loves it! She'll say, "ready, set, go" and she's off! She's getting pretty darn fast too! Dancing and jumping also top her list of favorite things to do. When a song is fast, she moves fast, and when a song is slow she moves super slow. Hilarious! She got a little trampoline for her birthday and I think she would jump on that thing all day if we let her! She loves being outside and playing on her swingset too! She just loves life! She is full of it!
We started her little tot school back in September. It's been good for both of us. We haven't been able to do it much the past month or so, but we fit it in when we can. She's definitely learned a lot from it! By her second birthday she could... recognize all the basic colors (red, orange, yellow, green, pink, purple, black, brown, white), recognize several shapes (triangle, square, circle, oval, heart, diamond, rectangle), count to 3 (lol), recognize at least 10 letters of the alphabet and their sounds, she's almost got the abc song down, memorized 1 scripture- Psalm 67:3 Let all the people praise thee. (she leaves the 67 out, I think because she can't say it.) She loves to read books. My favorite is when she's reading the bible and saying Jesus about every other word! I'm very proud of her and her love for learning! It makes this former teacher/mommy very happy! I pray she will always love learning and be a life long learner.
Thank you Jesus for our Spicer Beth. Next to Salvation, she is the greatest gift we've ever been given. Jared and I treasure being her parents and pray that she will choose You as her Lord and Savior someday soon. We commit her to you and pray your blessings upon her life. Help us to raise her in your way. We praise your Holy Name!
