The Little Birthday Girl

July 2, 2012

I always make a big deal of birthdays (Mike makes fun of me for it). From the moment Emily woke up on her big day she got lots of extra kisses and cuddles and lots of Happy Birthdays from all of us. After naptime she woke up to her favorite thing in the whole world, A Giant Slide in our livingroom! It took her a minute to register what was different when she walked into the room, but her expression was priceless when she realized what it was.

She went around the rest of the day telling us, and everyone that called to wish her a happy birthday, about her presents and slide.

Emily was so excited about her gifts and so excited about her day that was all about her. She got really good at yelling “Happy Birthday, Emmie!!!” at the top of her lungs. And big red has found a semi permanent place in our living room – yep, we are officially the coolest house in town with a giant slide in our living room :)

We had a yummy dinner of some of Emily’s favorites, and our picky little eater actually ate it! Hallelujah! After our successful meal we finished off the night with some yummy jello cupcakes and a lovely rendition of Emily’s new favorite song, “Happy Birthday.” (Seriously, it’s her favorite, it’s even become her new bedtime song of choice.)

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! I hope it was a wonderful day!

Happy birthday, Emmy G!

Side note: I totally want to curl my toes in your rug. It looks long and soft. Is that creepy?
