I am way behind on this blog... my daughter turned four on October 5. She is such an amazing soul. I took the day off work so I could hangout with her. My husband took the day off too. Hers is the first birthday that has been celebrated in our family since I started working full time. Thus, the lateness of this blog.
For her birthday, she wanted Minnie Mouse cupcakes. I went to the store, and brought her with me. She decided she needed a birthday outfit. After much persuasion, and it being her birthday, she got the birthday day outfit. It was a Dora outfit.
My 11 year-old was in charge of making the cupcakes. She wanted polka dot cupcake liners, white frosting and regular sized Oreo's and mini Oreo's. The minis were going to be used for the ears. The regulars were crushed up and put on the white frosting.
When I finally found the cupcake liners, they were right next to Minnie Mouse cupcake decorations. I was once again persuaded to buy those. Some were the sugar decorations that you can eat... It ended up being that you didn't want to eat those. I guess they were really hard. My daughter did make some of the Minnie Mouse cupcakes she was planning to with the Oreo's.
Her gifts were a "Frozen" bean bag chair, a toothbrush and toothpaste (which she really wanted), and a bicycle. The look on her face when she got the bicycle was priceless... The YouTube video is below:
She goes to daycare now since my husband and I both work. That night, she helped me get her cupcakes ready to bring to daycare. She helped me get the decorations on them and then put Oreo ears on them. She was so proud of the creation :)
She enjoys being with her siblings. She loves to get to play with them. She loves bath time. She loves noodles. She loves peanut butter. She loves ice cream. She enjoys getting to do crafts with her big sister. She would prefer to be a nudist. Given any chance, she takes on that role.
Nap time seems to be a thing of the past now, unless she is sick, or I get really lucky. Then there are the days when she wants to go to sleep at 7 PM and I have to convince her that it isn't a good idea. Mostly because I don't want to wake up at 4 or 5 AM. Those hours and I are not friends.
She has a gorgeous smile. She decided that she likes short hair. She never liked having it brushed, and the short hair makes her happy. I had decided that I could handle an A-line cut. When I walked in and the instructor (we go to a cosmetology school) suggested a Pixie cut, I had lost the war. She had been asking for a Pixie for weeks beforehand. It looks good on her, but I have to admit that it seriously took time getting used to.
Her eyes change color. Some days they are a really dark blue, some days they are a lighter blue and some days they even look brown. My eyes are the same way, but they go from brown, to hazel, to green. I have a brother whose eyes go from blue to gray. I think it is pretty cool.
She loves watching YouTube. She likes Masha and the Bear, or Lalaloopsy toys.
I am certainly blessed to have this little four year-old. She keeps me young, along with her siblings.
She had a wonderful birthday!
