emily turns 2!

Emily officially turned two exactly a month ago so I figured it was about time I wrote about it!

Emily and Griffin’s birthdays are only 6 days apart, so while I was still deeply grieving our little boy, our little girl’s birthday passed us right by.  Before all of this happened, when I was still in my pregnant bliss, I had been planning on having a potluck-y brunch on the 18th  and just celebrate our girl and our new baby at home with everyone (and who would have blamed me for not throwing a big party a week after giving birth?).  As life would have it, we ended up having Griffin’s memorial on the 18th, but in the mean time, one of my sweet friends had offered to throw Emily a birthday party and all we needed to do is show up.

What a God send.

So Emily had a Curious George themed birthday party almost a week ago on September the 8th (which happened to be one month since Griffin had passed away, but it was good to focus on our joy and blessings that day in the midst of remembering him), and all we had to do was show up!

Thank you to sweet Krista for planning Emily’s part, and to all of our friends and family for helping to make it a day Emily will (hopefully!) remember!  Love to you all.

What a sweet friend and a beautiful party. And oh my, her hair! Stunning curls. I also loved that your husband got in on the princess tiara action:-)

Can she possibly have hair that is any more gorgeous?! I'm obsessed. What a great party!

I rocked the tiara. Enough of a man to pull it off.
