Awwww, we had a tremendously excited little girl in our house this morning when she was told she was turning two years old today. Sally shouted out BIRTHDAY CAKE really loudly and then snuggled up underneath the duvet to show us that she was staying put until we presented her with a cake. Odd stayed in our bed with Sally, while Gillis and I sneaked downstairs to set a breakfast tray for her. Five minutes later we sang our hearts out and went in to Sally with lots of pressies and a Spiderman cake. The joy twinkling in her eyes when her big brother gave her the parcel, I’ll never forget that till the day I day. Truly amazing.
We ordered a new cake from Café Lindqvist, delicious. Delicate, floaty light chocolate mousse and cream. Sally munched her entire portion and said “yum yum”. Anything and everything that Gillis loves, Sally loves too, hence the Spiderman cake.
She got a stroller from Brio (adlink),
But her big brother pinched that pretty quickly, which didn’t seem to be a problem…
…because this seemed to be the highlight of her morning. She’s hugging her new toy Mini Speeder (adlink) from Jollyroom and wouldn’t leave this for one minute throughout the whole morning. We have one more surprise for her, which can hum too but has to be kept outside.We might give it to her this evening or wait until the weekend when she’s having her birthday party.
Phew! Thank goodness the celebrations turned out this successful, albeit a day later than it should’ve been. That’s Sally’s mom in a nutshell, more than a little bit messy, but finds a solution for everything in the end.
