Let the Birthday Celebration Begin!Posted: October 15, 2009
While talking to my sister-in-law today on the phone I reminded her that two years ago today at exactly that time (3:00 p.m.) I was just heading in to the hospital to get this show on the road. After being in labor since the previous night around 10, we were just positive that our little girl would arrive that evening… things did NOT go according to plan 😉 Man did those two days leading up to Ava’s arrival seem to take F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
Well, to be quite honest, these two days leading up to Ava’s 2nd birthday have seemed to take forever as well. It probably seems so much more exciting than last year because Ava’s been counting down right along with us! For the past 3 weeks instead of “Good Morning”, Ava has said, “Happy Birthday Me?” We have gone from saying, “soon” to, “next week” and finally today, “tomorrow!” Kurt and I decided that we could start the celebration slightly before schedule… so tonight we had round 1 (of 3) of blowing out 2 candles with Grandma and Grandpa! Along with themselves, and the perfect Ariel birthday card, they presented Ava with THE MOST ADORABLE KITCHEN!!! She has played non-stop since it’s arrival! What a perfect gift for our little chef!
