One of those weeks...

We have all been sick at least once here in the Starkey household, some of us twice (with different things) in less than five days.  I am really ready to wake up to a new week.

A Pink Party

I am incredibly behind and have so many posts to write, but I am going to start with the greatness of this weekend and Cana's birthday.  I can't believe I have a two year old...
Cana is the pride and joy of my life.  She loves trash trucks, buses, and trains, but proves her girliness with pink everything, bracelets, love for mani/pedis and hair products, and always finding my heels to wear around the house.  She likes to go fast and high in swings but is as gentle as can be when someone is sad - she sits down next to you and pats your back til you smile.  She gets caught doing something wrong and instantly cocks her to the side, smiles, and says "hi".  Cana loves to read and loves her cow!  She refuses to eat meat, but loves her blueberries and marshmallows. Cana is talking all the time and about all things.  97% of the time she loves her big girl bed and sleeping in it.  Her favorite jam is still California Girls but her music palatte is expanding as she will break out in song on her own with songs like Chris Tomlin's "Spirit Fall", Mammaw's version of God Made Me, and her own rendition of If You're Happy and You Know It.  There is nothing sweeter or cuter than her singing.  That will be a post in itself later on...

About a month ago we started working on her saying she was two and asking her what kind of party she wanted.  From the very beginning she answered with "Pink Party" so we had a pink party...We invited family and a few of Cana's little friends over to swing, swim and eat.  Jerod made her dreams come true by putting up a swing in the backyard for her so now she can swing her heart out anytime.

It was a great day...with clothes, without clothes, with all things pink and many wonderful friends and family around!!!!  I am so proud of my sweet Cana and I love nothing more than being her mommy!
