LET'S PARTY | Doc McStuffins Party

It's here and I can't believe it. I can't believe it's been TWO years since I became a mom and since my water broke and an hour later McKinlee graced that operating room with a sweet cry! You can read her birth story here. The last two years have been such a whirlwind of joy being her mama and I am so blessed that God chose me to be her guardian here on Earth. With that said, let's get started on a 2-year-post.

You have loved Doc McStuffins for the past few months, so that's the theme of your party. Little did we know in the last few weeks you would be OBSESSED with Frozen + "pincess" {Tangled}.

You love puzzles and coloring.

You had your first day of Preschool on March 26, 2014. It was awful, but you're much better now.

You love to run and pump your little arm while you do it, so cute.
You loved to have your belly rubbed and lay in Mom + Dad's bed until you fall asleep.

You still love "shake-shake" {Chocolate Milk}, applesauce, fruit snacks, oranges, bananas and strawberries. We've expanded your pallet a lot lately, you love Papa's grilled shrimp + corn.
  • you pretty much eat whatever I fix for dinner now. 
You love love love Bubbles!

We call you "Sissy" or "Sister", so naturally you think your name is Sissy. We'll say "Can you say McKinlee Gray?" and you reply "Sissy Gray". So we're getting there, sort of.

Below are some pictures from the Big Doc McStuffins party!






















Your actual birthday, you wore this cute shirt and had so much fun celebrating with your friends at school! We love you and can't wait to see what the next year holds! Happy Birthday, McKinlee Gray!
