Second Birthday & Randoms around the house

AKA:  The phone pics dump
Happy Second Birthday to my dear sweet little Buggie Wells.
You are the most clever, kind, articulate, snuggly, funny, little baby girl/big sister in the world. 
I'm going to keep it short and random this morning because I've got a balloon/beat band singalong/tea party to attend to in the next room.

Tagg sleeping through a little pool swimming
Wells taking a little milk bot break at the pool.  Her current most favorite place in the world.
 Wells is also a big fan of playing golf with her daddy.  She wanted to make sure the babies (fondly named One Baby and Two Baby) got to ride in the cart.  So sweet.

 So I'm officially a middle part convert.  It's been two weeks and I'm still loving it.  A few of you mentioned in my last hair post that you were jelly beans over my natural waves.  Don't kid yourselves, this is the work of the curling wand my friends and nothing more.  My hair is way too nappy without some heated guidance and a lot of hairspray.  I've always used my straightener to make waves, but I tell you, I'm a convert to the wand.  The style is so much better and you have tons of control over the size of the curls.  If you don't have a curling wand, go buy one now!
And just to prove it to you, here is a picture of my hair curled with my straightener the day before I bought the wand .  
 Plus it came with this creepy little three finger glove.  I mean seriously.

 Also, it seems our sweet little TWO YEAR OLD is not only into interior design, but fashion as well.  I am so proud!
 And for those of y'all yesterday who were asking where my long white table from the office went, well here she is sitting along the stairwell wall.  No judging, it still needs to be styled.  And the wonky lampshade corrected apparently as well.

Also, I'm beyond obsessed with this coral and greek key bolster pillow from Furbish.
Wells requested it for her Birthday so feel free to send her one too!

And of course I couldn't resist posting a picture of our sweet baby girl on the day we brought her home.
Two years old already.  Geeze.
Hope everyone else has a happy thursday!
