i don't recommend that.
Needless to say, J and i didn't sleep much at all that week. But thanks to a helpful husband who completely cleaned our old apartment all by himself, we were able to do it!
We had family and good friends over to our new place, grilled out hot dogs in the backyard, and celebrated the cutest little girl turning 2 years old.
Opening her presents. She was way more into this for this birthday.
Thanking Cousin A for her present. :)
At the end of presents when everyone clapped, Caroline clapped too.
Cousin Carter came to help celebrate too!
Aunt Dana and Cousin Charlie..................................getting ready to sing "Happy Birthday!"
She requested chocolate cake.
She's her mother's daughter for sure.
Cousin Dean enjoying his cupcake.
A few days later, on her actual birthday, we had Caroline and Mommy's Day of Fun! (Friend's reference alert!) i tried to think of all the things Caroline loves, and crammed them all into one day. At the end of the day, i was exhausted. But i know she had the best day.
Better at blowing out her birthday candle after some practice.
Swinging at the park is one of her favorite things in the world.
i seriously think she would spend her entire time on the swings at the park.
Trying out the splash pad for the first time.
She loved it.
After drying off, we went to the dollar store to get her a birthday balloon.
Balloons are another favorite thing.
She picked out the purple star balloon.
And of course, she had to have another cupcake.
In fact, she will sometimes sing the happy birthday song when sitting in her high chair in order to get another cupcake. i think she thinks one will magically appear whenever she sings that song.
i can't believe i have a 2 year old now. It's crazy how fast time moves when you have littles.
