Drew's birthday is Dec. 7th, which means that last year we didn't have Drew until just after her second birthday. So she spent a whole year with us before celebrating her birthday...a whole year watching everyone else have a birthday, have a cake, get sung to, and get to blow out candles. So let me tell you, when it was finally HER turn she was ready!! I don't think I really appreciated how much she wanted that birthday experience until we got to the candle-blowing part. I'm pretty sure I've never seen a child so intensely happy about it or so ready.
Helping make the birthday cake
All she had asked for was a "ba-yoon"..
She picked out Minnie Mouse plates, so of course I had to make a Minnie cake.
She got that third finger to work pretty quickly.
