Today is both a happy and a sad day. The happy part: F1-3 turned 2!! The sad part is, I don't have a baby anymore. She's so grown up. She had a great birthday. I've been practicing with her, so she can say "2 years." She came pretty close, and at least she knew the general sounds to make when asked how old she will be.
I brought a Dora The Explorer cake and party hats in to her daycare in the afternoon, and we all sat down for birthday cake with our party hats on. We sang the birthday song, and got cake and butter creme all over our faces.
At home, we did the whole routine again with the leftover cake, the three kids, and P1. Then she unwrapped her gifts. She was very good at unwrapping, and her face lit up at the sight of the loot. Her brand new purse was a favorite, and was immediately slung over her shoulder. The bath toy and doll house were appreciated too.
Happy birthday my sweetheart. May you always be such a warm, caring human being and so full of joy.
