Here she is in all her birthday glory...
We started the day off by letting her "open" her new big girl room. She loves it, even if she doesn't sleep in her new bed quite yet. I made her a little reading canopy. She still has no idea why it's there, but she likes to play in it :)
Every girl needs cute nails on her birthday, so we did manicures and pedicures after watching Daddy play frisbee that morning.
Sweet little e loves pretending and playing with Daddy. The baby wipes are her pillow, of course.
We invited little e's cousins over for cake and ice cream. We really didn't think very many people would come. Turns out that everyone we invited showed up except one family (we missed you Paul and Mykal). 37 people, 2 cakes, 1 pan of brownies, a huge tub of ice cream, lots of presents, and a broken swing set later (note to self: our swing set cannot hold ten children at once), we put our exhausted little girl to bed.
We love you, little e belle. You bring us so much joy and laughter and beautiful, tender moments. We are so glad you are part of our family. Thanks for making our lives that much sweeter.
