Kennedy’s birthday

{warning: photo overload of the new 2 year old}

Let the birthday continue…
yesterday, today and tomorrow.
One only wants to do this when they’re young,
so we may as well let them and enjoy watching.
I think instead of birthday, it will be birth-week soon.
Once we reach my grand age,
we conveniently try and skip the birthday all together,
so party away, Little One.

Lisa came over in the afternoon with a gift for Kennedy.
Two of her favorite things, Curious George and books.

One of the stories in the book is about George’s birthday.
She listened while I read and when we got the page
of George blowing out the candles on his cake she say,
“Georgie not have birthday. ME!”

The bigger kids couldn’t wait until she could open her gifts,
but she wasn’t in any rush.
Or was it, she didn’t know there were gifts to be opened? πŸ™‚

After she unwrapped her puzzle,
Dakota said, “I have a gift for her too!”
I was surprised, I certainly hadn’t helped him buy one.
He ran upstairs to his room and brought a little package down.
He had taken one of his little cars and wrapped it up
in a page that had fallen out of an old book.
It was well taped, as you can imagine, and quite cute!

The cake sat on a small glass table
in the middle of the kitchen all afternoon.
She never touched it.
Until… I came around the corner to find this happening!!

She said, “It’s yummy!”

Since she was already started,
the kids decided we should blow out candles and all eat cake.

It’s really hard for a 2 year old to get those 2 fingers up.
This works better, although she still yells, “One!”

oh the blowing…
and spitting…

and so many, many rounds of relighting and blowing again.

…finally it was time to eat some more cake!

I asked, “Are you ready for a bite of cake?”
She promptly leaned forward and…

I had no idea that was coming!

She was quite pleased with herself!

More bites.

All she was getting was frosting so I cut a piece for her.
She picked it up and carefully took the layers apart.

And then stuffed it in!

I think she had eaten a bit too much frosting because
she shuttered a bit and asked for a drink and was done eating.
No amount of encouraging would change her mind.
She broke the cake apart and laid it out for everyone else to eat.

Which they happily did!

As you can imagine, the entire episode was filled
with lots and lots of laughing by the siblings.
It’s no wonder the youngest ones behave the way they do
with all the encouragement they get. πŸ™‚

Yesterday and today,
it’s still her birthday if you ask.
The kiddos think we need another round
of cupcakes with candles over the weekend.
We shall see.

Happy day to you all!
