Elaine was excited about her birthday for one reason. It wasn’t the presents that were piled high. It wasn’t the fun and activities. It wasn’t even the balloons or M&M covered cake. Nope. She was focused on one thing – “I keem” (as she refers to ice cream). But before we get to the ice cream, here is Elaine on her 2nd birthday. Prepare for picture overload!
A tea set from Mommy & Daddy. So…I picked this up (brand-new) at a stoop sale. I threw it in her birthday bag as an afterthought. I didn’t even know if she was ready for it. But when she pulled that out of the bag, we had a hard time diverting her attention to anything else. She knew exactly what to do with her tea cups, and Daddy taught her to make a slurping sound. She will get along great at the Paul girls’ tea parties!
I was eagerly anticipating her opening this gift, as she points out every bike we see. But we made the mistake of opening the trike after the tea set. The only way to get her to try it out was to load up the basket with her tea cups. Now we have to teach her to pedal!
