Here's my favorite little monkey (and my friend, Blake)

Saturday morning took us to my favorite store, Target, where I get to see more Thomas and his friends' trains.Then, Mommy and I headed down to Aunt Net's house for a baby shower for Daddy's cousin, Wendy. She is looking great with a baby boy due in July and I had a blast playing with Uncle Dean, so much that I didn't want to leave.
Sunday started with early church, a nice long nap (even a small one for Mommy), Daddy cut the grass, and dinner at our friend's house, Dustin, Erika, Rory, Tiger, Allegra & Sydney. I know, it's a mouthful and I didn't even include their 2 dogs (plus one more hopefully after this weekend!). Sorry there are no pictures from these 2 events, but let's just say that I climbed into a small dog crate on Sunday night all by myself. I was too quick for Mommy to get a picture but it's cool since I don't want to get them in trouble with CPS or anything.
Here's me visiting the ambulance- don't worry, just for fun!

Not sure if Mommy or Daddy taught her this, but she licks her fingers to turn the pages:
A few examples of her terrible 2-year-old personality coming out:

Sweet, adorable, wonderful Eleanor (but I am biased)

In 2 years, my life has changed immensely and I cannot imagine it without Eleanor in it. She is the light of my life and makes each day a fun, new adventure. She has taught me how to be truly patient (which was a hard one for me), love with all my heart, and how to laugh at everything. I'm not always the best with my own words (unlike my wonderful husband) so here's a poem that describes how I feel about being a mother:
Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of life.
Thanks for the beautiful flowers and I can't wait to plant a garden of them with you!
Thanks to your wonderful preschool teachers for the gift of a beautiful picture.
My two favorite people in the whole wide world- I love you Daddy & Eleanor!
I will never let you fall in unless I am there to catch you! I had a wonderful mother's day!
