Dear Sloane...

Dear Sloane,
     Oh Sloaney girl, Sister, Loney Lou, you are truly one of God's masterpieces. You complete this family! I know I say it all the time and unfortunately will continue to say it but...WOW, time flies!! I can't believe you are TWO...TWO years old! (You can read my letter to ONE year old Sloane HERE) Before we fell asleep last night I was talking to your dad about how this actually (sort of) makes me tear up a bit. I am REALLY loving this stage with's fun...I don't want you to grow up. ;)

   This day 2 years ago I was 38 weeks pregnant. We headed to the Dr. for an ultrasound about 1:30...only to find you had the "cord" around your neck. The Dr. knew I wasn't leaving the hospital that day without you in my outside my belly safe and sound. We headed over to Labor and Delivery and the rest  is history. Ha! (You can read Sloane's birth story HERE)

This past year has been so fun with you! You have grown up sooo much! We joke about the day will soon come when you pass your brother up with talking...but it's not really a joke. You LOVE to talk, I guess you come by it naturally. Ha! We don't "count words" much any more as you are putting together 4 word sentences. It's actually kinda night to be able to communicate with you at this age. The times of frustrations are still there when we can't understand you but they are getting less and less. I LOVE, absolutely LOVE sitting in the other room and hearing you and Wyatt talk.

Speaking of you and really do enjoy being together. You miss him and ask 1,000,000,000 times where he is when he is at preschool. You DO NOT like going anywhere in the car if he isn't in his car seat next to you. Don't get me wrong there are times I think you guys REALLY don't like each other but they pass pretty quickly. Wyatt calls you "sis" or "sissy" and you call him "yiatt."

This picture above makes me laugh EVERYTIME I see it. It's affirms that you may be tiny but you will be able to hold your own....we have your Dr. appt. on Friday but last time we checked (23 months) you were 23 lbs and 36 inches tall. You wear a size 4 diaper and mostly 2T clothes. The clothes situation is mostly because it's getting warm and I only have 2T warm clothes so that's what you are wearing. Ha! Yesterday you actually wore a 12-18 month jacket.  Overall you are on the "tiny" side but you always have been smaller so it's normal for us until we see someone your age and think they are a giant. Ha!

You are turning into a pretty "girly girl." I wasn't (and am not) but it will all be ok. ;) Ha! You love having your nails painted, you always have a bow, you even started a dance class a few weeks ago and LOVE IT! Sis, you enjoy singing to yourself and even to others. Just like LOTS of other girls right now you are really enjoying the Disney Frozen princess, songs, and movie. Lou, you are also such a little mommy. At your b-day party you got some baby dolls and accessories! A mini pack and play and high chair are some of your new favorites!
Sloane-you have a smile that will light up a room and that's something I pray you NEVER lose. Everyone can smile but you do it truly with SO MUCH JOY! You are only 2 but you are really BEAUTIFUL! Your Daddy and I get stopped on a daily basis as someone tells us how pretty you are...we are so blessed that the Lord gave you to US!

You love to have things in their places. Don't get me wrong you can sure make a mess REALLY fast but you don't mind helping clean up! You also like to tell others what to do...sometime you are nice about it....but other times you give a pretty mean "look."

Oh Sis, I know it goes without saying but we all love you so much! You light up our lives....we pray you continue to be sweet and never lose that precious smile!

I love you baby so are such a beautiful girl!!!
