Mamie girl turned 2 on the 15th! Big Sister was the first one to her room that morning, and she came to get me to tell me that “Mamie is awake..and she looks 2 years old!”
AB & I sang to her first thing and her response when we were all done was “CU-CAKE” – Mamie loves nothing more than a cupcake. (She gets it from her Momma). :)
We did her party after church that day- and only invited the immediate family. Since it was just us, I decided to just put the leaf in the kitchen table and have everyone stay inside versus setting up the party on the sunroom.
Mamie loves Elmo, just like her big sister did at this age, and it made it an easy choice when choosing a party theme. Another major plus, was that I was able to use all of the Elmo party stuff over again! Perfect.
Somehow I managed to keep her out of them. The funny thing is, my parents were there for less than 10 minutes and Mamie got a cupcake BEFORE lunch. :) Baby girl knows Grammy won’t say “no”… of course not many of us do say the “N” word to Mames… she isn’t fond of hearing that AT ALL. :)
We had BBQ sliders for lunch and then sang to our big two year old. She was ADORABLE during the birthday song and I’ve never in my life seen a cuter candle- blower. She waited while we sang and you could tell she was concentrating so hard to hear when we were done.. and as soon as we stopped signing, she blew out her candle- on her own, before anyone even told her to. It was the cutest thing.
It was another fun Sunday afternoon of celebrating a little girl who is also loved beyond measure. DW and I are so very blessed to get to be their parents.
