Anatomy of a Birthday

SJ's birthday began with chocolate donut holes and a viewing of her JoJo show. Notice her new cupcake pj's which have been a big hit this whole week.

Mid morning we went outside for the bye-paci ceremony. Unfortunately, it was was raining, but we did not let that deter us. SJ proudly dropped her bag of pacis in the recycle bin and was ready to head back inside for her big girl toy.

SJ was thrilled with her new doll house. It's still under construction (mostly painting now), but she thought it was so beautiful. She got to open 2 presents at this time - a doll and some furniture for the house. She even said, "Thank you, Mommy and Daddy." without any prompting. I guess she is becoming a big girl!

SJ did not nap today. She tried, but no luck. I don't think it was paci related - she didn't even ask for it. I think she was super excited about her new toys and was generally excited about her birthday. Instead, she had fun with Grandma and Grandpa and thought they were all twins since they all donned OSU outfits. About an hour before her party started SJ handed out birthday hats and declared, "It's party time!"

SJ had a great party - lots of friends and family, 2 pieces of her Little Einsteins themed chocolate cake, fun presents, and the singing of "Happy Birthday" about 5 times. She was just beside herself with happiness!

When it was time to finally wind down I felt for sure she would have problems without her pacifier, but she was perfect. She asked for it once while I was putting her to bed. We talked about what happened earlier in the day and she laid back down. She was asleep before I finished her good-night songs. Let's hope the next several nights are just as good as tonight. We are so proud of our little, I mean BIG, girl. 2 things can top this day off to being even better - 1 is a RedSox win and the other is an OSU win. As of this post, both teams are ahead!
