I can’t believe we are actually having this day today. My baby can’t be two hears old already. Just doesn’t seem fair. At least this is how I as the Mommy feel. But, the just turned two year old has trouble believing that she is only two. She has never acted her age. So why start now. Anyway, I wasn’t planning on having any kind of birthday party this year for Kayla. Then as the big day approached I felt guilty. Of course I would. Skipping birthday parties is just not my style. So I called in a couple neighbors and friends at the last minute. And they were more then happy to help Kayla celebrate her big day.
We had Kayla’s neighbor and partner in crime, Zoe represent the almost two year olds.
And of course we had to have Kayla’s absolutely favorite person in the world show up. Julia never passes up a chance to hang out with her bud either.
I think we had a great little showing of kiddos. And Kayla absolutely adored the special attention of having a day be all about her. Which can be hard when your kid number three with two very active and demanding big sisters. And I loved that she was able to be special too. Can’t believe I almost skipped the party.
Time for cake! Kayla LOVES Dora right now so of course we went with the Dora cake. I think she was a little overwhelmed by the time the cake came. Everyone was surrounding her and yelling as they tried to teach her how to blow out the candles. But, she eventually figured it out all on her own.
And look, she actually ate the cake too. This is definitely a first with my kids. It is so weird having girls who hate any kind of cake or baked good. Very unnatural. Nice to finally have a normal kid for once.
Time for presents. Kayla loves unwrapping presents now. Christmas this year will be fun. She even opened a few early as she would sneak off and grab a present behind our backs. Oh well, your only two once. Why not enjoy it.
One of the “early” presents opened was her Dora apron. Quite fitting I think. As she wore it as her decoration for the whole party. She must have known there was a Dora theme and wanted to look the part.
She also got her very own baby Night-Night, since Reagan is not ready to share hers with Kayla just yet.
FINALLY, Kayla got a baby stroller. She would grab any strollers she could find in stores and try to walk off with them. I can’t believe we never had one before. By far her favorite present this year.
Last but not least, Kayla got her very own potty. She is very interested in the big potty. But too small yet to stop herself from actually falling in. So we figured this would help. She actually went potty in it right away as well. At least we know she knows what its for.
Thanks to everyone who was able to drop everything and come celebrate Miss Kayla on her special day. She had a blast.
Happy Birthday Big Girl! Mommy and Daddy Love You Lots!
