Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Happy 4-1/2!!

Amelia turned 4-1/2 today and we decided to let her pick out a birthday cake. She's been planning her 5th birthday for months and since we have a wonderful family friend who usually makes her cakes and it's been such a long winter I thought it would be fun to celebrate her half birthday. I took Amelia to Ingles Sunday to pick out her cake. She opted for a Winnie the Pooh cake despite talking ad infinitum about the parking lot birthday cake she wanted, and briefly considering a Dora cake. We told the woman what we wanted and she went back to make sure they had the kit. While she finished filling out the form Amelia asked if she could see the pieces and had a lot of fun looking at them.

We picked up the cake today after I finished working and also got a blue balloon ($1 ... who could say no?). When we got home she noticed how she could let it go and still reach the bottom of the string until the textured ceiling won and there was a loud POP! So I got out some regular balloons and inflated four which Amelia picked out: blue, red, yellow and green. We had fun batting these around the living room and the popped balloon was quickly forgotten.

We went to dance where Amelia tried to tell Miss Angel (who knows Amelia has a September birthday) that it was her half birthday and Miss Angel said, "Silly goose! Today isn't your birthday!" Amelia liked being called a silly goose and told me about it all the way home.

After dance and dinner we had cake and I wrapped a Hello Kitty sticker book for her which she loved. So it was a nice simple family party. I took some cake to the neighbors after Amelia went to bed and tomorrow we'll bring some to Nana and also to Livia and her family. In the meantime, Amelia has had a lot of fun getting Pooh to pop out of his honey pot.
