Happy Second Birthday, Talitha!

Yesterday was Talitha's second birthday.  She is a bundle of precious cuteness these days!  She loves crayons, dolls and Chic-Fil-A cows.  Her favorite book is the Kingfisher Animal Encyclopedia.  And she is the only child I know that insists on having a pillow to lay her head on while I change her diaper.  (Probably a sure sign of readiness to potty train, but she is the youngest of 8. ;) 

We got this t-shirt as a hand-me down when William was two.  William and Benaiah both wore it and the kids found it first thing in the morning yesterday.  (I didn't even know we still had it!  ha, ha!)

And while she still insists that she is "one,"  she loved her birthday cake and unlike her brother, loved all the attention.

I made this video of her yesterday; a grand attempt to record her talking and capture a bit of her personality.  In typical 2 year old fashion, she has a bit of ADD and acts like she doesn't know the answers to my questions.  :)  I hope all the special people in her life who aren't able to watch her grow up in person, enjoy.  :)
