Birthday Girl!

I am interrupting my posts on our recent wedding/reunion/road trip to show you that this little girl...

turned 2 on Sunday.

She really likes Yo Gabba Gabba....I think it stems back to her hearing it in the womb.  We lived in an apartment when I was 8 and 9 months pregnant - without furniture - so I would sleep on the living room floor.  The kids, although they had a bedroom at the apartment, preferred sleeping out there with me.  We got into the habit of turning on Nick Jr. before bedtime and watching a few shows before I took one final trip to the bathroom and turned in for the night.  We would watch Yo Gabba Gabba and Ni Hao Kai Lan....but V-girl has really taking a shine to "Gabby".

So, here is her cake....this is Foofa...

Here is what I used to sketch from....a mask template off of Nick Jr.

I think I did pretty good.  She recognized her anyway!

Getting a closer look...

(Smiling at her siblings....that were NOT holding the camera!)
She blew out one of her candles - decided she was scared of the smoke and had her brave brother, A-man blow out the second candle for her.  She very politely ate a piece of cake and posed for a picture with her gift.  A really cool product that I am reviewing for TOS (so more info to come)

She seems like such a big girl.  She actually sang Happy Birthday to herself....except her version is, "Happy Me".  I like her version....I think I will adopt it as my motto.

Happy Me.

I like it.

It has a nice ring to it.

And, it is true.
