January 30: We celebrated our N2 all day today on her 5th birthday! It's hard to believe that she is five year old. In lieu of a party, we invited her best friend and her BFF's family over to join us on our traditional family Sunday lunch. It was a crazy full house, but we had a lot of fun celebrating her with her menu of choice - hot dogs!
January 31: I had to include another shot from her birthday in my album because this one cracks. me. up. everytime I look at it. Her face when she sees her cake and gets ready to blow it out is all action. No hesitancy from her! (And for those curious, the cake was a grandma-made chocolate cake with pink colored cream cheese frosting. I was going to make her cupcakes for her birthday, but she said, no thank you, she had already discussed her cake with grandma and grandma would be taking care of it!)
February 3: N2 took it upon herself to change E diaper for me because I was busy right at that moment. Of course, the moment she started to work on her wiggly target, I immediately stopped what I was doing to photo-document the event. She persevered and got him diapered, but it was work!
February 5: A little horseplay before bed. This little one LOVES to wrestle a bit before bed.
