Exactly 2 years ago yesterday, Isabelle was born a big baby- 9 pounds 7 ounces at that! I can still remember how pink her skin was. She had a lot of curly hair. And her lips were so define. When I saw her the first time, I thought what in the world! How did I end up having a big baby with a curly hair? Both Paul and I always have straight hair. We definitely don't need a hair re-bond. But Isabelle... she had curly hair and I loved it so much!
Yesterday, she officially turned two. She followed my prayer thanking God that she is 2 and that she has been really healthy, except for mild colds and fever once in several months. We told her it was her birthday and as usual at the mention of the word, she sang the Happy Birthday song and talked about how she blew the candles and ate the cake. We didn't want to do anything big because she already had two parties and one more is coming up with our Filipino-American friends. But her daddy got home with flowers and a balloon for her. She has a special love for balloons, so she was so excited to see a big one yesterday. Then we had cookies and cream ice cream.
