she's two

i don't know how many parents i've heard say... can't believe s/he is 1/2/3/4/5/etc... but it's just so true. it goes by lightning quick. i swear i brought her home just a few months ago... and that she crawled just last month... and said her first word yesterday....

but not so... she's 2 and talking fabulously and running around like a ball of fire and full of life and sooo affectionate and knows her own mind and is just beautiful.

we went to a big toy shop across the bay, looking for her first tricycle but only came out with hoola hoops! fortunately though, because we bumped into friends who offered us their son's discarded one. so we still have a big present to buy her. before that we dragged her around hardware shops looking for kitchen tiles... at least the mirrors were fun. she even said happy birthday to herself, which was particularly hilarious as we had only said it once this morning (not making too much of a big deal of the thing because her party isn't for another 2 weeks, due to house move and all)

look at that crazy dreaded hair!

then we were enticed by the same friends to go to a new shopping area in the gorgeous seaside town of Kotor. and there they had a large play area for kids and she had a blast.

 your favourite thing ever... balls!

she played a lovely game of sorting sugar packets with their son as we had coffee. we all had some ice cream. then we walked in the old town for a bit, then home. turned out a lovely day and even the weather behaved.

we even managed to choose some kitchen tiles, no small task here.

  2. Happy birthday, Wildflower! I can't believe she's two, either, and Michael will be there in just a couple of months! We're getting him a tricycle, too.

    She's so adorable. Love the crazy hair!

  9. happy birthday wildflower!

    love the photos. :) she looks as if she's grown so much just recently.

    weird to watch children grow up online...when we first "met" she was 8 months old. and then to see her grow in spurts through sporadic photos. yikes! it goes by fast!

  14. Happy birthday to your sweet wildflower girl. Lovely photos of her, I'm sure I've said before, but she is such a little cutie. Two is such a fun age - people drone on about the negatives, but there is so much good - they are so their own little people - Amelia is full of little stories and games and her imagination just soars now (she's 2.5) - her pretend games are such a delight to listen to and she has us in stitches with her funny little ways. Enjoy every minute of this year, I hope it's a great one for all of you. x

  16. p.s, love the baby boho look with the dreads :). very self actualised - looking in mirror saying to herself Happy birthday; hehe, sooo cute.

    (are dreadlocks even a boho look? i suppose they could well be eh!)
