Happy 2nd Birthday Butler Twins!


Thursday, December 29, 2016

Today is my daughters' second birthday. Two years ago today, I went through a very rough labor which ended in an emergency c-section, followed by a month long NICU stay. But in the end, we were blessed with two beautiful baby girls.

Life these last two years has been HARD, incredible, life altering, full of tears, snuggles, milestones and so much love. I never knew how much my heart could love until the day I met my baby girls.

Sutton you were my first born and you have become such a bear cub (our nickname for her). You are quiet, but you let out some mean roars when you are upset or don't get your way. You are so nurturing. You love your baby doll and caring for her. You also take care of your sister and love bringing her her paci and blanket to help calm her down. You are obsessed with your blanket and paci, but only at home. You are such a big girl at daycare.

You are showing signs of being a lefty just like your mommy. Your vocabulary has exploded in the last couple of weeks and you are finally not getting as frustrated when trying to tell us what you want. You are extremely cautious when it comes to trying anything out. You usually let Avery try something first (food or something to do) and then will try it after you see what she thinks about it.

You give the sloppiest kisses and the best hugs. You love to brush mommy's hair and sit in my lap. You hate getting your diaper changed or getting dressed. You would rather be playing.

Sutton you are very fierce and full of so much love. Mommy and Daddy love you so.

Avery you are my goofy little princess. You love laughing. Your laugh is infectious and we can't get enough of you when you say Heeeeyyyyy. You are very talkative. If you are not saying real words, you are babbling. But your vocabulary has exploded and you are talking up a storm. You recently learned your sister's name and it is so sweet to hear you calling for her.....Suuutttton.

You love watching out for your sister and you always come to her when she is crying. You help her up and hug her to calm her down.

You are very adventurous. You love climbing on everything, testing boundaries and trying new foods out. You still don't like fruit, but put a plate of Mexican food in front of you and you will go to town.

You know all of your body parts and love when I sing Itsy Bitsy Spider to you. You could sing that song over and over. You love your Wawa, mommy, daddy, sister, papas, gaga and grandma so much. You are so sweet and full of sass all at the same time.

Avery you are so full of life and so full of love. Mommy and Daddy love you so.

Happy Birthday Avery and Sutton!
