Sure is funny how life changes, Mr. Thomas Rhett!

Yesterday, the Rhett Akins household celebrated the second birthday of their daughter, Ada James. Rhett kicked off the day by sweetly singing "Happy Birthday" to the youngster, who is dozily and adorably wandering around the kitchen. "Happy 2nd birthday to my sleepy baby girl, love you so much AJ!" Rhett captioned an Instagram post of the cute video. "I really wish time would stop and you would stay this little forever (and preferably sleep like an hour longer each morning) I guess it's time to start playing with the 48 barbies you got from your grandparents and family."

Rhett's wife, Lauren Akins, also took to Instagram to share a touching missive on their daughter's special day. "AJ you are the funniest human I know. I can't believe I get to be your mama. I hope you know how much you are loved and how much I live for your kisses," she signs off on the heartfelt missive.

The couple is currently expecting their third child together—another girl!— so it's safe to say those 48 barbies can expect to be working overtime.
