So Louisa’s second birthday was on Saturday. Two. She’s two. I’m sorry but how the hell did that happen? Why does time speed up every year? You’d think that this year would seem long and drawn out what with everything that has happened since her last birthday but no – it still feels like I blinked and then it was over. But anyway, we had a smallish get together, not a big to-do like it was last year since I’m busy packing and getting ready to move panicking that nothing is done yet, working extra hours, looking after two kids, doing laundry and dishes etc etc etc. Here are some photos of the madness.
