Oh that little girl.
I can't believe she's 2.
Thursday night we had a small group of our family over for dinner and cake.
I didn't do any kind of theme.
We're pretty low key in these parts so I had a family friend make a simple strawberry cake, hung some white crepe paper and multi color fabric garlands, and blew up some balloons.
I put some little party hats on some toy animals and put those animals on top of her little white cake.
A 2 year old's birthday party :D
The next day (her actual birthday) some cousins and friends came over for a brunch-y playdate.
Smoothies, bubbles, and new sunglasses rounded out phase two of this sweet little girl's birthday.
What can I say about this sweet, spunky, sparkley, cherished girl?
I have been thinking about it a lot.
She came into our lives like a ray of sunshine over a cliff.
We wanted her so bad.
She opened up a whole new world to us.
From her first quick, whispered "hi,hi,hi", I wanted to be this child's mama for as long as I could.
My favorite things about her:
-Her friendliness. Everyone in the grocery store gets a "Hi!" from her.
- her sweet, soft smell
- the way she says "Up!..... pees?" and also "o ma gosh"
- that she has always loved her sister
- her chubby thighs and tiny feet
- the big, pretty eyes her birth mother gave her
...........and sooooo many other tiny, huge things.
The Lord knows what her/our future holds.
But I will always cherish the little child who made me a mama.
