Miss E had her birthday a few days after miss J. She turned 2. And then decided to grow up a lot. We had to move her to a big girl bed because she would no longer not climb out of her crib. She started picking up a few words a day. And she just began to grow up, if that makes sense. It was like she fully crossed into toddlerhood. Funny how it just seems to happen sometimes. No progression. Just happens in an instant. We just had a family birthday party for her, but miss J helped me make it special with some decorations.
We used things that we had around the house. Vintage lace adorned the wall with some gold tissue paper pom poms that I had from a current wall decorating. I took the yellow pom pom flowers off of our photo chalkboard and put them in a vintage vase. The place mats were a fabulous thrifted find that I have later plans for and the tablecloth is a vintage one that I scored off of Ebay years ago.
I made a two layer chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. Yum. We love cake around here. Big sis found the pink crown in the dress up bin and thought it would be good to use instead of the hats I had. I agreed. A crown for the birthday princess was perfect.
Miss E didn’t really get the candle thing at all though. It was kind of funny. Even after trying to show her, she just didn’t care. Oh well. Maybe next year.
We filled our tummies with sugar and our hearts with love in celebration for this precious little girl. She’s my goofy one and always gets me to smile. Happy and blessed to have both of my sweet girls!
