2 year portraits

Oops...I forgot about these!  We went to a portrait party a few weeks before Jillian's birthday.  We got a couple good shots, so we decided to make these her 2 year portraits. 

Lots of updates!

I've finally gotten around to updating the blog!  Testing season is KILLING me!  Look below for FIVE new posts...

She'll hate me for these some day...

but I just can't help it!

First Swim of the year!

A few days before Jillian's birthday it was warm enough for us to break out the swimsuit and swimming pool for Jillian to play with.  She loved it!

Easter 2011

We had a nice quiet Easter at home this year.  We dyed eggs with Jillian for the first time.  It was too windy to do it outside, so we did it inside.  I almost had a panic attack throughout the whole ordeal, but Jillian had a great time and Frank enjoyed watching me freak out (story of my life!)  This morning the Easter bunny came to visit then my parents came over for a late lunch.  Happy Easter everyone!

Liggio Easter Egg Hunt 2011

Last weekend we had the 1st annual Liggio Easter Egg Hunt at my Aunt Diane's house.  We had so much fun watching the kids do some of the same things we used to do when we were little.

2nd Birthday

It's only taken me 3 weeks to get this written, but here it goes...

Jillian's 2nd birthday was wonderful!  We had a blast...much easier than the 1st birthday.  We did a Minnie Mouse theme, had a moonwalk and pizza.  Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate our sweet girl's birthday!  She had the best time (in fact she woke up from her nap the next Saturday saying "birthday party?")

Here are a few pictures from the day!

Sweet birthday girl...we love you more than we ever thought possible!
