Happy Birthday, Small Girl!

The day was.... fantastic, delightful, busy, chaotic, happy, loud, wistful, joyous, glad, proud, delicious, too fast...

I can't believe she's already two. Just as fervently as I can't believe it's only been two years.

Amy with Theo (whom I got to hold for a little bit. Yay!)

Something about this photo reminds me of Velazquez's "Las Meninas" - maybe the way Lara and Mikey are looking at the camera? Or maybe Velazquez just captured some innate quality of all children....

Cake!

Cake rocks.

On that note, maybe the day is best described in Lara's post-nap summary: "Yaya ess two. Gus and Yaya ett a cake."
