Stella is 2!!!!!!!!

Our little Monkey Stella is now 2 years old!!! We can't believe all this time has already passed since she was born. It's definitely true when people say "Before you know it....". It's been a crazy ride, but we wouldn't change a thing!
We celebrated Stella's birthday with a small party on the day, and then we had an official party where everybody showed up and brought some very nice presents where she had a blast unwrapping. She got - a bubble maker, books (which she loves), double easel, little fishing game, toy cell phone, basketball (that she takes everywhere), etc.
Stella is very smart! Probably a little advanced for her age. She can count to fifteen, she has a HUGE vocabulary - as well as putting 3-4 words together. She has very good fine motor coordination, a little clumsy on her feet at times (Mommy says she gets that from her Dad), but it doesn't stop her from getting right back up, shaking it off, and start running again!
About three weeks ago Sara and I bought a house! It's in bountiful, and it couldn't be more perfect for us. We have great views of the lake and Antelope Island, along with beautiful sunsets. We're not officially moved in yet because we want to get all the painting done and possibly re stain the original hardwood floors. It has a very nice fenced in back yard which eventually will have Stella's new jungle gym. In the evening we can sit out on the patio, with a light breeze, and hear the birds singing. That's it! No traffic or freeway noise! Just like Sara and I like it.

I believe around September - October we have our next cardiology appointment for Stella. At this time we're not too worried about it because she's doing so well....but I guess you never know.

- Sorry for the poor quality on the pictures, I could not find the battery charger for the good camera :) -
