Jorgia's second birthday is right around the corner as well. My tiny tornado turns two! We are definitely feeling the twos coming on strong. One minute she's giving you the sweetest hugs and sugars.....the next she's kicking and screaming in a full-out flail. Thankfully, the sweet moments outnumber the latter, but those temper tantrums can take their toll. Especially in this heat!! You take the outside temp of 107, add a Jorgia temper tantrum (which causes my blood to boil) = one HOT mama! ha! In all seriousness, she really does amaze me. It seems as though her vocabulary increases daily. She understands EVERYTHING, and is getting better and better at verbally expressing most things. She's her big sister's shadow. Everything Darby Kate does -- Jorgia's right there to give it her best shot. For some reason that applies to all instances except for potty time. For a while there, she was showing quite a bit of interest in using the potty. She would grab our hand and excitedly run to the potty. No action, but with expressive intent -- she would sit on the potty. These days, she tells us occasionally (usually after the fact) and is more excited to get the paper and flush (which I try to prevent due to failed attempt)! ANYWAY -- all in good time, right?
The following pictures are from Darby Kate's fourth birthday party!!! She chose a cupcake theme -- and it turned out really cute! I could have in no form or fashion pulled it off without the help of a wonderful crew: Trev, Bebe, Poppa, Babe, Poppy, Clancy.....to name a few. Thanks so much for all of your help!!
**during the completion of this post we had DK's 4 year visit. She weighs 38 pounds and is 41 3/4 inches tall. That places her in the 50th percentile for weight, and 75th percentile for height!
Here's the birthday girl! Believe it or not -- she had a really cute sundress with a cute little cupcake pin my mom made, but before I could get a picture of her in it -- it was off to the pool!! Little Lola -- hanging out watching all the action

**whew! this particular post took me forever! I would LOVE for someone to show me an EASIER way to load pictures on Blogger. It takes forever to load, then another forever to get rid of all the space! To my dismay, I actually deleted several pictures during the process of attempting to rid the space in between the pictures -- ARGH! Oh well -- hope you enjoy!
