Harlow's 2nd Birthday

Harlow girl had a great birthday! I'm not sure she knew exactly what was going on but she had a good time anyway :)

The day before her birthday we had family over. We had dinner, opened presents, and had cake and ice cream. The usual birthday party. Harlow got spoiled with presents! We don't know what to do with all of them between her birthday and Christmas. She loved all her presents but nothing beats her baby dolls!

The day of her birthday was on Monday so me, my mom, Beckett, and Harlow went to Color Me Mine. The kids got to pick out something to paint and when they were done the studio will glaze it and fire it to make it look awesome. It was fun and something they've never done. We went out to lunch as well. That night, when Josh was home from work, we went to a trampoline park. The kids had a blast. They couldn't get enough and definitely got a good work out in.

Harlow Quinn: 2 Year Update

Our baby girl is 2! I can't believe it. She has the cutest personality. We can't get enough of her!

Weight: 31.2 lbs (92%)
Height: 37.5" (98%)

Harlow at 2:
  • She loves her baby dolls. She got new ones for Christmas and has played with them nonstop ever since!
  • Very detail oriented. She's always looking intently at whatever she's playing with or coloring.
  • Is a picky eater! She has been ever since birth. She's starting to get a little better but not much.
  • Favorite foods: MILK, rice, cheese, strawberries, chocolate, salmon, French fries
  • She isn't a big TV watcher. She will request to watch Minnie Mouse but only for a few minutes.
  • She loves her princess nightgown and princess slippers. Those are her first choice if she gets to pick out her clothes.
  • Animal lover! She loves all animals. Going to the zoo or to the farm are her favorite things to do. She loves Bo too, even though he's constantly knocking her down!
  • A flirt. She loves boys, especially Uncle Trevor! haha.
  • Overall she has a big, happy, easy going personality. She loves going and doing, she loves being with people. I think she'll definitely be outgoing when she's older.

Family Vacation: Disneyland!!

We just got back from our first Sharp family vacation to Disneyland. It was awesome! Beckett has been asking to go for over a year now and we thought this was the perfect time to go. We can escape the snow here in Utah and go to Disneyland when it's a little slower.

The best thing we did was fly! We were in California by 10am and at Disneyland by lunchtime. The kids absolutely loved it (of course). It was there first time and they were mesmerized by the Disney characters they saw. We got a 3 day hopper pass and it was well worth it. We used it for the 3 days and went back and forth between Disneyland and California Adventure.

We ended up spending more time at California Adventure. It was less busy and had a lot of good rides for the kids. The kids favorite things they did were the parades (at both parks) and seeing/meeting the characters. We saw Mickey, Minnie, Pluto. Doc McStuffins. Chip & Dale, Sophia the First, Goofy, Daisy and Donald Duck, and princesses. They liked the rides as well but the characters were by far their favorite.

We spent a lot of time in the Bugs Life area riding the rides there. We also loved Radiator Springs, and the buzz lightyear rides. All in all it was awesome! No complaints!

Other than Disneyland, we also spent one day at Huntington Beach. It was 65 degrees and not crowded. We had an awesome day playing in the sand, riding bikes along the shore, and eating good food! It was Harlow's first time at the beach. She LOVED the sand from her first step. She wasn't such a big fan of the ocean though. Too loud and cold!
