13: making | Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
14: When you turned 18 months old, it was as though you grew up 10 years! You began exploring many new things, saying many new words (even sentences), showing your personality & attitude, showing excitement for things you enjoyed doing. You never cease to amaze us! The winter proved to be challenging as you are our little outdoor girl so the beginning of spring brought many new adventures for you! | MARCH
15: 18 Months Your smile makes any bad day turn into the greatest day ever!
17: day | Some of your favorite things to do include anything with your Daddy, anything outdoors, bubble baths, Minnie Mouse, Bubbles, Play at the park (teeter totter/swing/slide), Sing Songs
18: This summer came and went at whirlwind speed! We had tons of birthday parties (which you quickly picked up on singing Happy Birthday), Adventureland (which we found your only fear thus far...any of the rides accept for the boats which you cried when we took you off!), family vacation to Michigan in June (when you got your ears pierced with Nana, Great Aunt Rhonda & Aunt Amber and barely even cried!), visits to Nana & Papa's and Gamma & Gampa Kern's, several visits to the pool and beach (you are a true water girl and love anything to do with it!), parades, fairs/carnivals, horse races. There were so many things that you enjoyed doing and we love watching the activities that we have always loved through your eyes! You learn things so quickly, it's amazing to us and others around you! You are able sing your ABC's, count to 20, sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star & Itsy, Bitsy Spider. It's as though you practice things in your sleep and decide what you are going to do the next day to surprise us. We look forward to watching those surprises and watching you grow into a big girl!
20: A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.
21: summer time
22: Age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying you.
23: 2 Years Old! Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

25: Dear Monkey: It's hard to believe that another year has gone by already and you still find ways to surprise and amaze us every single day. You keep us on our toes and keep us busy but we enjoy every single minute of it. We love you with all of our hearts; words will never express how much! You are a beautiful girl, inside and out, you find joy in everything, you are happy and content watching Mickey Mouse with Daddy or chasing Mommy around the kitchen. We love you Alivia; you fill our lives with so much joy and happiness! We love you sooooo much...to the moon and back again...and look forward to another fun and exciting year watching you grow! Love, Mommy & Daddy
