Two Day Today!

I am TWO today! It is so nice to be so mature and grown up!

Let's see - first I got a present while I was getting dressed - some head bands in different colors. I tried them all on and took them all off! I love opening gifts.

Then I had breakfast. Lots of great stuff to spit out - orange rolls, veggie sausages with KETCHUP, hash browns and sweet potato fries, and fruit.
And of course, a Monster drink to make sure I have lots of energy today.*
Pappa tried to get me to eat something instead of spitting it all out. Ha!
Then I played King of the Mountain!
Then while Mommy was cleaning up after breakfast, I went into the bathroom and came back out to streak around in my birthday suit! Just trying to let my folks know it's time for my exciting annual birthday bath.**

Oh, and I so did NOT wee on the bathroom floor while the tub was being filled. Especially since the floor has hardibacker on it in prep for tiling one of these days. (Must be Not Me! Birthday.)

We left out the streaking photos, but here's a shot of my new bath do.
Since then, I've been dancing to a dance video and listening to Mommy read stories. Now I gotta get otherwise occupied so Mommy can make the cake.

---------------
*Mommy's Note: We do restrict her to no more than three Monster drinks per day, as advised. In case you were wondering.

Seriously, she desperately indicated that she wanted some, so when the can was empty, we put apple juice in it and let her have it. Honest. Anything to keep the birthday girl smiling.

**Mommy's Note: We do try to bathe her every evening. Honest. This is the first time she's gone streaking and insisting on a bath.

---------------
There's still a chance to join the party!

Here is cousin Cecelia celebrating...

And Auntie Barbara...

And Max from Simply Stork!
All you have to do to join is find or post a party photo on your blog and link to my birthday Mr. Linky below. Or email a party photo to Mommy at janemaritz at yahoo dot com.

And since you give gifts on birthdays, we'll be giving one away, too! A $15 gift certificate to Amazon.com! To be part of the random drawing, just join in the party, which is going on through Sunday! (Cuz I gotta go to school on Monday, being two and all.)

I was so impressed to find out you limit her monsters to 3. Personally... I figure you should always give kids what they want and spare yourself the whining.

ps. of course I am joking. hello.
even though I am bad about telling kids NO... I have been known to put my foot down.

Happy Birthday, Esme!!! May Jesus bless your day with laughter and joy, and may he fill all the rest of your days with growth in Him, and a tremendous desire to know Him more and more. For He is the most important person in the WHOLE world. Blessings and peace to you, and a hug from your friends here in Italy...
