Yesterday when Lily woke up, Will and I walked in her room together and sang Happy Birthday to her.
Not fully awake yet, she didn’t really know what to make of this birthday stuff we had been talking to her about for days.
Next came the cupcake with a candle, another Happy Birthday was sang and then some presents were opened.
She was so overwhelmed by all the spotlight on her that she decided to share her birthday with Elmo and therefore Elmo turned 2 yesterday as well.
When asked what she wanted to do in the morning, she chose a bike ride to Southpoint park.
She went on the swings, the slide, ran around (with Elmo of course)…
At lunch time I decided to share a birthday tradition of mine and treat her to some french toast, potatoes, eggs and orange juice at Front Porch Cafe.
Once home, we watched Pino-Q!, played in her room and the late afternoon was spent running around on Lincoln Rd in the nice breezy and cool air we have been having.
Lily had calls from WV and Portugal where birthdays were sang to her all throughout the day.
I think she had a great day and she was a very happy 2 year old.
I would also like to thank all of you who left comments on here and of course all of our friends on Facebook for all the wonderful birthday wishes for Lily. Thank you all so much!
