Our little Kella turned 2 on Wednesday! I don't think she knew the day was a special day until she woke up from her nap to a downstairs decorated with balloons and streamers.
After dinner, and playing outside, we came inside (with an assortment of neighbor kids) so Kella could open her presents. Andy did the shopping for this birthday, and I think he did a really good job. Kella got a stuffed fox, some wooden food for her kitchen, little disney princess dolls, a bubble machine and a bubble bucket. She also got some Dora pjs from Grammy Pammy and Aunt Courtney and family and coloring books from both.
I saw this idea on pinterest. Andy printed out a paper two and after frosting the cake, I sprinkled the little sprinkle balls all over. The results look pretty good, I think.
Kella was so excited when she realized that everyone was singing for her. And, I think she liked sitting in a big kid seat right in front of her cake.
After everyone left and the boys went upstairs to bed, Kella finally got to play with some of her new toys.
Happy Kella with Mommy.
Kella at 2:
likes soft animal toys, Dora, bubbles, Bubble Guppies, Super Why, Sesame Street, pacifyers (we call them bo-bos), her blankie, books, bath time with bubbles, the sandbox (and eating sand), candy, snuggling, staying up late, trying to pet the cats, being outside with the big kids, fruit, playing with her toys, being able to go up and down the stairs, shoes
dislikes: going to bed, having sticky hands, having to sit in her stroller at sporting events, not getting her way
Oh my goodness, can this girl talk! It must be a girl thing, because I do not remember any of the boys talking like she does at this age. It's fun to see her little personality come out as she gets bigger.
