Happy to You!

Two Candles!
Originally uploaded by laurenlannette.

Yesterday was Hannah's second birthday. When she woke up I immediately started singing Happy Birthday to her. She joined in. Then she got to open up some little presents. She got some Goldfish, which she ate for breakfast, a puzzle, a Dora cup, and some Cinderella magnets. She was pretty much in heaven. Then we went to the park where we met with some friends. It wasn't really a birthday party for her, one of my friends and her son are in town from Idaho and a bunch of our friends all got together with the kids and had pizza. My friend's son, Derek, is pretty much Hannah's best friend. I used to babysit him before they moved and they were so happy to see each other. I was glad they remembered each other.
I brought cupcakes, which the kids devoured and smeared gloriously all over themselves.

After that we had dinner with daddy and then had another cupcake. This time with two candles. She knew exactly what to do and only needed help blowing out one of them. We then opened her "big presents". She truly enjoyed her birthday and all day she kept saying "Happy to you!" She even pointed to the cupcakes, which she knows are called cupcakes, and asked if she could have some more happy to you.

So, my darling girl, happy to you! You've brought so much happy to me.

God grant you many more "happy to you" years, Hannah!!
She is SO cute and how fun that she can be more aware of the celebration. It is always sweet to see that excitement and wonder in their eyes. (even if it's brought on by cupcakes)
