Our Kira monster turns 2!

So our little miss Kira...NOT A GIRLY GIRL. Which I love, but after Madilyn I assumed I would be planning; princess, fairy, pink, glitter, frilly, fancy, parties for a few years. As Kira's birthday got closer and closer, I started brainstorming ideas for a party theme that would more aptly suit her.

she growls
she climbs
she can find a treat anywhere
she can find a way to get that treat...anywhere
she can smell that treat,
she can smell that treat even if I ate it 10 minutes ago
she'll say "whas dat?" while trying to pry my mouth open, and get said treat
she still puts EVERYTHING in her mouth (except her dinner)
she loves to wrestle
she hates cake
she loves the movie Monsters Inc.
she begs to be thrown around
she pummels her sister constantly
she doesn't sleep ( I'm growling)
she likes to eat anything with catsup on it (hates honey)
she is persistent, persistent, persistent
she is sometimes referred to as jack-jack (please see Pixar short)

she is still my little girl
she is darling
she likes to get dressed for church and twirl for dad
she gives the best hugs
she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her papa
she says "I" ALL THE TIME
she will do puzzles all day every day
she talks in full sentences "mom, i nee mor pleeeese"
she loves ice cream, especially going out to get some with gigi and papa
she loves ALL her people so much, and lights up when she sees any of them
she has the cutest little voice
she will go to the arms of almost any old man
she has bright blue eyes and curly blond hair
she loves her big sister

So to sum up....a darling little monster:

We threw a girly monster bash...

Monster slime for the guests

Monster mouths with friends

Monster goodie bags: included custom sock monster, silly sting and slime
(should have gotten pictures of the sock monsters)

Monster cup"cakes". (remember she hates Aunt Morgan came up with these: brownie-based, ice-cream-filled, whip-cream-topped mosters. WITH royal icing accessories)

My favorite part of the day was when Madilyn got to give her gift to Kira. Madilyn picked it out while we were in Disneyland. We bought it, and she has been dying to give it to Kira ever since. The day finally arrived. (She wrote on the package herself: Kira. FRoM Madilyn)

Kira loved it (note-it's the baby version of  "Boo" from Monster inc.)

We opened lots of presents-Thank you everyone!

With Great Grandma Jane

Mini-Mouse Karaoke (a big hit)

A cabbage patch twin named Sasha Kayleigh. Their hair is even styled the same!

As part of the decorations I ordered some gigantic balloons (I mean 36inchers). They. were. awesome. I only needed six to decorate the whole room, AND when we were done with presents and ice cream, we took them down and it was a par-tay! The kids AND adults had tons of fun with them.

It was a great day. She is a great little girl. We love her so much, and are so glad she is part of our family. This is such a fun age. Her little personality is coming out, but I can still smother her in hugs and kisses. She wants to do everything by herself, but her cheeks and thighs are still chubby. I'm grateful to be her mom, and am excited for lots more birthdays!
We love you Kira Jane!!!
