Sophie turned 3 on Saturday and for the first time, she was not sick on her birthday. No, she only got sick the day after. ;) We celebrated - just the 4 of us - in the morning with a lovely pancake breakfast and lots of presents.
Sophie was so excited, she woke up extra early that day and walked into the kitchen, screaming: It's my birthday! This is the first year where I think she was totally getting it. She had been telling everyone about her birthday for months. :) So much fun to watch her unwrap her presents!
Later that day we celebrated with friends at our community pool. I have always loved the idea of a pool party and we finally live in a climate where you can pull that off in May. It was rainy in the morning but the sun came out right in time for our party and the weather was pleasant. The kids had so much fun in the baby pool and at the splash pad. I think we'll do exactly the same thing next year.
