Happy Birthday Alexandra

Saturday we had the chance to spend the afternoon with one very precious little birthday girl, Alexandra. We told Colin we were going to a birthday party and while he seemed to understand what we were saying, really all he understood was "go". He's to the repetition stage and we tend to take for granted that if he can say it, that means he also understands what he's saying. No so in most cases. He did quite well, even with just a 45 minute nap. He enjoyed playing with Alexandra's toys - both old and the ones she just unwrapped, cleaning up the wrapping paper, and stealing some of the attention away from her (sorry Alexandra, you have full reign at Colin's next birthday!). Although the two of them didn't give each other a second look this weekend, the mothers have conspired to have an arranged marriage at a later date. The kids don't know but would they really understand anyways? Mother knows best!

The birthday girl seemed to have a great day and we were so happy to spend it with her. It's been an exciting year full of highs and lows but it's hard to think of any of that when you see that precious face! You can read more about the little cutie at Southern Comfort.

The birthday girl in the midst of her gifts and then her ENORMOUS cupcake! I don't think even I could put that thing away.
