Annette is Two!!

Horray! Today our bubbly, energetic, fun- loving, spirited little girl turns TWO!!! Jason and I remember so clearly March 12, 2010 at Prince of Wales hospital when we waited hand in hand for Annette to arrive. We reminisced about how fast my labor went, how eager Annette was to make her appearance, how tiny she was (only 5 pounds!), and how she hasn't slowed down since!
Yesterday we had a backyard family BBQ at Jason's parents house to celebrate Annette's day. Jason's brother, Mike, and my sister, Angela, drove down from LA. We were also blessed with the presence of our friend from Mozambique, Kahterine, who happened to be in San Diego for the week. It was so fun celebrating together!!

Annette was VERY into being the birthday girl and so excited about her pink butterfly cake. She loved the attention, blowing out her candles, opening gifts, and even let us blindfold her for "pin the antenna on the butterfly".

We love Auntie Angela!!

Trying out her new clothes and smart phone (:


  1. Could she get any cuter???? Seriously.... :) What a doll! You all look great, and it looks like you're enjoying your time at home. I can't believe it's been a year already since her 1st b-day party... a little easier planning a party in America?! I miss you!!!

  2. awww! She looks so grown up! can't wait to get to know the big girl annette next year!!

  3. Oh sweet Annette, I can't wait to meet you! I can hardly believe you're two though...that means last time I saw mommy/daddy/Josiah was MORE than two years ago! How does time go so fast?! I'm so excited to get to see you guys again soon! Totally honest, WHENEVER you can/want to come is PERFECT with me! I won't feel overwhelmed, and if I do it will likely have nothing to do with you guys being here and you can hug me while I can and tell me everything will be okay. :) So COME 10 TIMES and STAY FOR MONTHS! That's my vote. :) Happy Birthday Annette!

  4. Happy birthday, sweet girl! We look forward to meeting you soon!

  5. Wish I could be there! miss you guys!!
