It Can't Be True!! Marlie Grace is TWO!!

Our precious Marlie Grace is two years old!  I cannot even begin to explain how quickly I feel like this time is going.  For MG's birthday we headed to Mimi and Grandaddy's new condo in Port Aransas.  How lucky are we?  

When Marlie arrived she was greeted by the biggest birthday bear ever!  She loves him, can't you tell?!

It was super windy and chilly this day so we headed to the mall in Corpus to play. 

 Sister love!

 After a couple of days our friends the Fischers joined us.  The girls were so excited to see "their Payton".  
 We visited the aquarium and had it mostly to ourselves. 

 Up close and personal with Kai and Shadow.  
 A little chilly weather won't keep us off the beach, it was beautiful out there!

 Marlie's birthday pancakes!  As if on cue, we were blessed with the most beautiful beach day on Marlie's birthday.  It was 80 degrees on January 31!

 Her Ariel ice cream birthday cake.  I will never forget her sweet face when everyone was singing to her.  

 Birthday bear had a special spot on the way home.  The girls thought that was hysterical!
 Two definitely looks good on you girl!

I am thankful everyday for the blessing of Marlie Grace.  She is the most mischievous, funny, fearless little thing I have ever met!  I cannot find words to describe the zest for life that she has.  I sometimes watch in awe and think about what God has designed her to accomplish.  I have no doubt it will be no small task and she is definitely up to it!  "Though she be but little, she is FIERCE!" .  Thank you Marlie Grace, for being our sweet, sweet baby girl.  Thank you for keeping us on our toes.  Thank you for making me laugh every day.  But don't be afraid to slow down a bit.  I will love you as fiercely as you are, for all of your life.
