2nd Birthday

Baby girl just turned 2
We had elaborate plans for a big Elmo themed 2nd birthday

And then we paused
and chose not to stress ourselves out this year with all the usual
decoration prep, food, invitations, goodie bags, etc
We still had party elements of course but didn't go overboard. Alex helped
(I think he is an aspiring chef)

We chose to invite just a small amount of family
Sometimes for very little ones,(especially baby girl)  lots of people can be overwhelming
so a small gathering was just right for her
She adored her Elmo cake and cupcakes (inspired by wannafoodie)


Baby girl had a blast and danced around in her party dress with a smile on her face
I could barely get a shot of her still.

We had some guilt about not going all out for her birthday as we seem to do for her brother..
but the look on her face confirmed that we made the right decision and I must admit although I LOVE big parties, I'm sure glad we could actually be part of this one rather than running around tending to things. Im pretty sure the above snapshot is engraved in my heart forever.

Happy Birthday to our sweet angel
Mommy and Daddy love you
