Happy 2nd Birthday Bug!

in Family

Our little Bug joined our family 2 years ago today.  It feels like yesterday that we were celebrating her first birthday—time flies by so quickly!  Her birth was much anticipated, not only because I was anxious to get off of bed rest, but because we’d already caught glimpses of her sweet little face and couldn’t wait to see what she would be like.

She received the nickname “Bug” within several days of her birth, and the name quickly stuck.  From day one, she LOVED to cuddle, and it was impossible not to call her our little cuddle bug.  She hasn’t lost that quality and still climbs into my lap several times a day for a good cuddle.

When she isn’t cuddling, she’s climbing.  When she isn’t climbing, she’s trying to make someone laugh.

I’m so grateful that we’ve got the privilege of having her in our family.  Happy Birthday Bug!  We love you!

Happy Birthday. She (and her sister) is definitively super mignonne! Enjoy your day. Did she get to choose her own menu/cake? That’s a tradition in our family!


Nancy@acommunaltable January 27, 2011 at 8:48 pm

Absolutely precious!!! I hope she had a very happy birthday!!
Yes, time does fly – I can’t believe that my first “baby” will be 18 in a few weeks!! Yikes!!!

Gorgeous photo and happy birthday to Bug.

Nice to finally “meet” Bug!

I just noticed the quote beside your picture. A few months ago I did a series of collages that all had a Chinese proverb in them. One of the ones I used was “Even a clever daughter in law finds it hard to cook without rice.”

I got the proverbs from a really old book that I found in a dollar bin at a used book store.

If you would like to have a look at the collages they are on my flickr site. http://www.flickr.com/photos/divesin/4975555611/in/set-72157623543935025/

Hope your little bug celebrated like she was 2 years old ;) She is adorable and Diane’s photo captures all the joy within her! We called our daughter Chloe – Chlo-bug and they are just as cute as a bug in a rug at that age, aahhh kinda miss them.
