Our little ooo-baby turned 2! Seriously, time is just ticking right along!
Brea's birthday was a fun affair. We mostly just chilled and kept saying happy birthday to her. It wasn't as big of a to-do as Ailey's mostly because, well, she's 2. She likes baby dolls and pretty much anything her siblings are playing with that she can't have at the moment. ;) The next 2 years will involve her interests more and she'll be involved in the planning. I'm really looking forward to that! I still decorated just for her and she got cupcakes. I've seen that she's more into cookies than cake, so we may be going with a cookie cake next year. ;)
The paper lantern balls in the pics are from Michael's and I got a great price for them! I love it when I can use one of their 40% off 1 item coupled with 25% of entire purchase coupons! Woohoo! Hopefully, they will last for many years to come...especially if I can keep the girls from playing with them like they are actual bouncy balls! Oy.
Okay, brea got a chocolate chip pancake breakfast. She was funny because she didn't really know what was going on, though she did a good job waiting to blow out her candles on the pancakes and cupcakes later on while we sang happy birthday to her.
Ailey had help blowing out her candles on her cake, so she decided that Brea needed her help blowing out her candles on the cupcakes. I think Brea will like blowing out her own candles next year. ;)
When it came time to open her presents, I started her out, but she soon got the hang of it herself and was excited about her hello kitty doll and her vtech phone. She is a phone fanatic! She wouldn't stop swiping mine and Sam's phones, so we figured she needed her own. :) The funny thing was that the other kiddos wanted to play with her phone so much! We have a standing rule that presents don't have to be shared on the day they are received so that the person gets to actually play with their gifts. The gifts usually end up getting shared all around after about 30 minutes, anyway.
All in all, we had a good day celebrating Brea. :)
You are such a delight! We are excited to see what God has built into you as you grow and blossom. We are so proud of our beautiful, lovely, wonderful baby girl! We love you sooooo much! Happy Birthday!
