Birthday Celebrations

Since you only turn 2 once in your life, we definitely had to celebrate this milestone with our sweet little Millie!

The morning of the big day, (May 3rd- clearly, I'm still running late on these posts) our new 2 year old woke up to her birthday pancakes!


The candles were a hit, but tasting her very first powdered donut got a big thumbs up... 


Dada had to go off to work...


but then got to meet up with us for a birthday lunch and a cupcake in the front yard!


Millie was definitely a fan of the cupcake, just like the first time she tasted it a year ago.


This face says it all...


That night, she got to open some of her presents from us, and she was more than thrilled.

She loved her Minnie Mouse music set...


especially the drums...


And the Dora book her DeeDee sent, must have been a knee slapper...


After all the cupcake eating, present opening, and running through the balloons...


...she was exhausted. 


Thankfully the celebrations continued that weekend with some of her favorite people!


Seriously, how cute are they??  I don't think it can get any cuter.  

Some of the party activities included:

- Ring around the Rosie with May May...


- blowing out the candles on the Minnie Mouse cake (while wondering why it took both Mama and MayMay to hold the cake??!?)....



- smiling with the birthday boy Big Stuart, whose birthday was on that very day!  Thankfully he wasn't picky about Minnie being on the cake on HIS birthday. =)


- and having fun with lots of special people...



And if that wasn't enough, over Memorial Day, we got to celebrate Millie AND her Dada at the lake!!


That face is priceless...


And the biggest celebration of all to mark this 2 year milestone...
catching her first fish!!!



Then she had to kiss the fish.
Clearly mama wasn't on the dock at the time, because I would have been so grossed out!
Thanks Elaine for taking those pictures!



This two year old certainly is blessed!!
