Go Elena, it’s your birthday! Go Elena, it’s your birthday! Well, not really but yesterday was just as exciting! I made it through my dentist appointment! Apparently, the dentist thought it was just a fluke that my filling fell out and that it would probably not happen a second time if she refilled it. So that’s what she did! It took all of 10 minutes and I’m as good as new. If it falls out again, however, apparently I will need a ceramic fill which is essentially a crown. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t fall out again! It will cost around $600.00 out of pocket! Yikes! It’s amazing how little that dental insurance covers. I still can’t believe that dental work (other than cleanings of course) is considered cosmetic! Are they kiddin’ with this crap? Seriously, it’s crap!
Okay, enough whining for the day. I processed the pictures from Esterina’s (Alivia’s cousin) birthday party that we attended this past weekend on Saturday. She turned two years old! It’s amazing! It seems like yesterday that Gina (my sister-in-law) and I were pregnant! Now we are celebrating our toddler’s birthdays! I know you must hear it all the time how quickly the time passes, but it’s undeniably true! It’s a little depressing. I asked Alivia this past weekend if she could stop growing and just stay 22 months forever. She just looked up at me with those gorgeous eyes of hers not really knowing how to reply. She did give me a hug though. It’s almost as if she sensed that I was sad. Is she the greatest or what? My sister, whose kids are pretty much grown now (16 and 14), tells me that I will love each age better than the last so it’s almost as if you will never want to rewind time and go back to when they were a baby. That makes sense. I really love the age Alivia is now and, yeah, better than the age she was yesterday, a week ago, a month ago, and even last year. My sister is a smart cookie!
Okay, onto my
This GIF is of Alivia riding on the lawn mower with my mother-in-law (her Grammy). She just loves any type of ride. She didn’t want to get off!
Now onto my pictures…
Everyone, meet Harry! This is my mother-in-law’s dog. Is he cute or what? I love that I caught his ears sticking straight up!
Yes, Alivia is helping Grammy steer!
Alivia checking to make sure Daddy is back there watching!
And, this is the BIRTHDAY girl!
Check out this girl’s hair! Gorgeous right? It’s amazing really.
She’s had this length hair since she was one year old. No joke!
And, how pretty is her dress?
Playing with her Abuelo (Grandpa)!
I love this next little pose! She cracks me up!
And this one too!
Now, you know I had to throw in a few pictures of Alivia right?
My baby’s piggy toes! She had a rock in her shoe! Ouch!
This next shot is one of my favorites of this day!
Look at those beautiful eyes as she rests on mommy’s shoulder!
She was overdue for a nap, the lil’ bugger.
I had to throw this next shot in the mix! It’s not from Esterina’s birthday. It was taken the next day (on Sunday). We just bought Alivia this Dora the Explorer power wheels and she absolutely loved it! It was so fun watching her ride around everywhere! She got the hang of it very quickly! Go baby!
