Although both Nid and I were sick with a cold, we celebrated her third birthday this past weekend. She was so excited that her friends were coming over to play with her, that I didn’t have the heart to cancel her party. It was a fun-filled day and she was so happy; which was worth all the effort and energy D and I put into making her party happen.
She’s grown up so much, it amazes me every time I think about it. She was such a good girl, shared her toys and goodies with her friends and there were no breakdowns or tantrums. We played a couple of games; hot balloon and toss the ball in the bucket and all the kids ate and enjoyed themselves, as did their parents. Overall, I think my first toddler birthday party was a big success!
I can’t believe you’re three years old! Time has flown by so quickly. I remember the day you were born, you were so tiny and fragile and now, you are such a big girl. You’re riding a bike now, you can open the fridge and freezer doors. You know how to tidy up your room on your own and put on your clothes. You can grab a snack on your own and share one with mommy and daddy too.
You’ve become so independent and as much as daddy and I would like to think so, you’re not our little baby anymore. You’re our big girl now and we are so happy to see what a beautiful girl you are becoming.
You started pre-school earlier this year, it was hard at first, but you’ve gotten used to it now and love it. You also have a new babysitter, Kiesha and she’s grown so close to you, as you have to her.
As you start another year and grow bigger, smarter, more beautiful, mommy and daddy want you to know that we love you so much, more than anything in the world. Your smiles help soothe all of our pains and miseries and take away all of our stress. No matter how big you get or how old you are, you will always be our darling baby girl and we’ll love just as much tomorrow as we do today.
Three Years Old!
Happy Birthday, sweetheart. Hugs and kisses for another beautiful year ahead. Xoxo
Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? Do anything exciting or did you just stay home and relax?
My weekend was busy. My parents were over on Saturday and I was out and about with my mom to get her last-minute shopping for her trip to India done. It’s always fun shopping with my mom, except she normally tells me we’ll be visiting one or two stores and end up running around the city stopping at every store she remembers she “may” need something from. It gets a little hectic but it’s mostly fun. Plus, she’s going to India with my father and I don’t know when they’ll be back. They normally end up staying there for about six months at a time, so it was nice to spend some time with her before they leave.
Sunday was spend shopping for Nid’s birthday party and making sure I have all the ingredients and supplies ready. Dev is sick, so he stayed home with Nid; while my neighbour escorted me to Costco and Walmart; it was exhausting! I don’t know what possessed me to shop at Costco and Walmart on a Sunday morning, but I did. By the time we got everything home, I was worn out and ready for a nap.
So, that was my weekend. Although, it was hectic, I feel like I got a lot accomplished; which is a great thing for me these days, since I’m always feeling lazy and worn out.
I hope you’ve had an awesome weekend and are ready to take on the week. I can’t wait until Friday to get everything ready for Nid’s third birthday party. I’m so pumped up and hope it goes smoothly, as this is the first year I’m having kids come over to celebrate. I just hope everyone shows up. Stay tuned for some party and food ideas I’m putting together for the party.
Can you believe it? My little munchkin is going to be 3-years old next month! It surprises me and shocks me to see how big she’s gotten. I mean, just look at her in this photo above, she was only 1-years old and now she’s almost 3. Wow! How quickly time flies.
As you all know, she’s a Halloween baby. As I’ve done for the past two years, I will be planning a costume birthday party for her this year as well. However, this year, we’ve decided not to invite adults and basically have 5-6 children come over that attend the same daycare as her. Plus, I’ll be taking a cake into daycare for her, so that she can celebrate her birthday with her classmates as well.
The theme this year is Minnie Mouse! Well actually, we are debating between Dora the Explorer and Minnie Mouse. I think Ni likes both, I prefer Minnie. But Dev told me to also consider Dora. I just find it hard to picture Ni dressed up as Dora, plus, Minnie Mouse is so much cuter. But we’re going to leave it up to Ni to decide.
The plan is to print out a couple of pictures of each character and put them up around the house, the ones Ni collects the most of is the one we’ll be choosing as the theme for the party. After all, it is her party and she should be the one to decide which character she’d like to see at her birthday, right?
Right now, I’m mostly occupied by figuring out what I’m going to feed the kids that do come over and what games/activities we’re going to do. So, I’m spending a lot of my free-time on Pinterest hunting for ideas.
If you know any, do share. I could really use the help because this is the first party that I’m having kids over for and I just don’t know what exciting games we can play.
