Blame it on Pinterest. Yes, I went all out for Ella’s puppy-themed birthday party. Lots of decorations, a bouncy house from my sister, hot dogs and fries, party favors, etc. I’m glad I made it small because I would have gone crazy trying to personalize a bunch of stuff. I think Ella had a good time and honestly, my little E deserved it all!
Wow I cannot believe E is 2. She changes every single week. This week, for ex, she let me sing Twinkle twinkle little star, which she never did even last week.
She also gives me back the iPad and iPhone when I ask her most times, and is now screaming her head off when we put her in the crib. She is constantly hungry and still loves singing music and spinning around when there’s music.
She can count from 1 – 10 and kisses me randomly.
For her bday we took her out to breakfast since Tim bought tix to the Book of Mormon for my bday without realizing that it was E’s bday. E woke up starved, so Tim gave her a waffle (or faffle, as she calls it). And then another half. Then she opened the balance bike I got her for her bday (from craigslist!)
Needless to say she didn’t eat at the bakery. But she did poop there.
Got her cupcakes to share at school and then took her to Mezclaria with Ben for rice and beans.
Saturday we went to Summerfest and met up with Paul and Diana. Ella ate a lit of free popcorn, watched some of the parade (clapped a lot though) and was too scared to go in the bouncy houses.
Sat we celebrated our PEPS babies’ bday and then headed to Bainbridge to Dawn’s parents’ amazing home. Lots of craziness on the way back to the ferry as we missed the 5:30 ferry and almost lost Caco and Charlie who barely made it in time to the cars as they were getting dinner for the kids.
Delay on this but here are some pics from Ella’s first camping trip ever! She hiked a but (was carried most times), played with her cousins, slept in a tent (kinda, she woke up several times at night and on the second night slept in cousins’ RV), ate a ton of junk food, went canoeing and skipped her nap!
