Happy Birthday Ellie!!!

Ellie turned 2 on Saturday. She's definitely ready to get older. For weeks, whenever anyone asked her how old she was, she'd answer "Five!" But I think she's finally okay with two. We celebrated with caramel apple cake (which was supposed to have pretty swirls of caramel on the top and a big green 2, but due to an unfortunate incident with a pastry tube and really hot caramel sacue was instead covered with a large caramel blob which we then tried to make pretty by swirling the green through it. But Ellie's 2 and doesn't care what her cake looked like, so it's all good) and cookies and cream ice cream. As soon as we lit the candles she clapped her hands and said, "Now everyone will sing Happy Birthday to ME!" She even blew out the candles all on her own.

It was a great day and she had a blast. I just can't believe my baby is two years old!


  1. Happy Birthday Ellie! Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow up. Be careful you are going to blink and she will be 16 and dating. (=

  2. Not only will my baby one day be 16, but we will, for a short time, have three teenage daughters all at once.

    THAT makes me shudder!

  3. Congratulations to Ellie! 2 year olds are so fun. Megan's birthday is in 2 weeks. When I asked her what she was going to be for Halloween, she said "TWO WEEKS!" Jodie informed me that she's a little mixed up with her birthday and Halloween.
    By the way, when you have a 2 year old, that means you're oooold. :)

  4. Watch it, sister! If having a 2 year old makes me oooold, what am I for having a nearly 7 year old?

    On second thought, don't answer that!

  5. You don't even want me to go there...
