Rylee Jean turns two today!  We celebrated this weekend with a small party on Saturday with my family.  We had everyone over early for brunch and feasted on chocolate chip pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon and pastries.  Ry was spoiled with all sorts of fun gifts.  She got a little stroller and babydoll to push around from my sister that is basically her favorite thing ever right now.  Sam and I bought her a balance bike that she wanted absolutely nothing to do with :).   Maybe in a few months she will take more interest (we’re hoping!)

We couldn’t be more thankful for this peanut….or the family we have to love on her.  She is growing up far too quickly….but boy do I enjoy the little lady she is becoming.  Can’t wait to see what this year holds.

Details:  Rylee’s top – Nordstrom, leggings – Target // party hat, banners, cake flags – handmade // crown headband – Crochet Savy // balance bike (re-painted)

    Every detail is exquisite:)
    She is precious Kelli! Two is such a fun age despite the challenges it might bring. Veronica has given me a run for my money, but she makes us laugh ever single day. Their innocence makes you want to see the world through their eyes.
    Happy birthday Rylee!

      Thanks Anna!! Yes, this age has definitely brought it’s fair share of challenges! But yes, to see more of her personality shine through and to interact with her on a deeper level is so cool! Can’t wait to see what else this year brings! xo

    Oh My, this little girl is sooooo beautiful ! All the photos are gorgeous, especially the 1st of Rylee. There’s so much love in your look in the photo where you are together…
    Finally, your cat is super cute. Mine used to plays with wraps and ribbons too, I loved that :-)

    Happy birthday Rylee !

    I love the flags! Do you have a paper pattern for those or did you purchase them somewhere? Lovely shades of brown and blue.

    • kelli

      Thanks Emily! No, I just made the garlands myself. No pattern, I just cut them up freehand and stitched them all together with my sewing machine!

    Adorable! It’s been a while since I have checked in here! I’m loving how beautiful your baby girl is. Do you hang out with Sara and her husband still? I see their baby on instagram all the time. So cute! Blessings!

      Hey girl! I haven’t seen Kahana or Sarah in a while but I did get to meet cute little Duke when he was about a month old! Hope you are doing well!
